More about gaming build friend mine
  1. Need to include links please.
  2. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice <--- what's the budget, screen resolution, need or don't need such things as an o/s (Windows, monitor, etc... plan on SLI/Xfire in the future, over clocking, screen resolution, etc.... Copy paste of that link on this thread would be nice. :)
  3. Sorry about that.

    Updated the thread!
  4. Nice build :) Only a few changes to make that I can see.

    First is the vid card.... try this combo down below, and if it's a budget issue...then go with 4 gigs of this RAM (2x2gb) 4 gigs if fine for a gaming build.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.604446 Combo Discount: -$15.00 Combo Price: $324.98
    G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
    GIGABYTE GV-N560OC-1GI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    Now the last change. This mobo down below is sold out on newegg, but superbiiz has been around forever and it's a solid site.

    http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-P67X4B3&title=ASRock-P67-EXTREME4-B3-LGA1155-Intel-P67-B3-DDR3-Quad-SLI-Quad-CrossFireX-SATA3-USB3-0-A-GbE-ATX-Motherboard $153.99
    ASRock P67 EXTREME4 B3 LGA1155/ Intel P67 B3/ DDR3/ Quad SLI & Quad CrossFireX/ SATA3&USB3.0/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard
  5. check out Micro Center for cheap processors. they beat newegg some how.
  6. Okay so, I swapped the graphics card for a GIGABYTE GV-N560OC-1GI GeForce GTX 560
    I'm going to order the ASRock P67 EXTREME4 B3 p67 board.
    switched out the 8gigs of ram for 4gigs to fit the budget.

    +1
  8. Sorry but is this the same MOBO?
    http://www.amazon.com/ASRock-X58-Extreme-CrossFireX-Motherboard/dp/B000T9PP8E/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1301423985&sr=8-1-fkmr0

    I'd rather order it from amazon since I get free 2 day shipping.
