I would like some advice on this build please. I will mostly be using this rig for gaming. (Looking forward to the Old Republic ) My budget is pretty flexible, but I would like to keep in under $1200 for the tower. I want to run SLI cards and overclock at some point but not right away. I want to go pretty big with the processor so that I do not have to upgrade for awhile. Any thoughts would be much appreciated,
Well I got a $20 rebate on the GTX470. (Which only makes a $15 difference.) I should have mentioned that I already have it DOH! Sorry about that. Good advice on the case though think I will drop down a bit. Should I get an aftermarket fan, or wait till I overclock?
Since very few games will take advantage of more than 3 threads so for gaming the Intel® Core™ I5 2500K is really a great processor. I would match it up with a Intel SSD 320 120GB drive with the saving you got you are going to be very happy overall with performance and reliability.
