Hello guys, I just need some help about these parts if they will be compatible. This will be my first gaming rig to build so I kind of new to this..


MOBO: Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3

Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30Ghz

GPU: Palit GeForce GTX 580 (1536mb 384bit GDDR5)

RAM: Gskill Ripjaws-X 8gb 4gbx2 DDR3 1600 CL9

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB, 64mb, WD102FAEX

Case: Antec LanBoy Air Red

Cooler: Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler for Intel and AMD

PSU: Corsair 850watts (HX850) HX Series (Modular) PHP 7990.00

Im planning to use this for gaming that will last for some time in the future so I am planning(far future) to have 2 gtx580 and overclock. Im just looking for help from people that have a good understanding on building computers.

Thank you to anyone that helps.

nice build you are comptable with all your parts. I would get 1,000 watt psu if you plant to overclock 2 580's in the future. Those video cards are energy consumers.

Also not a big fan on the cooler master v8. I would suggest getting a proglimatech rev.b. I just replaced my i72600k with one and the temps don't past 65c overclocked to 4.9! I should also mention that I replaced cooler master v8 with this config.

Thank you for your quick response. What do you think is best, Ill buy 850w psu now and buy 1,000w in the future or Ill just buy 1,000w today?

Do you have any other suggestion aside from proglimatech rev.b? It seems that that is not available here in our country.

Look for a Hyper 212+ or Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B for good cheap cooling.

I would avoid Palit. Get EVGA, Gigabyte, Asus or MSI if you can.

I might go with the 950TX or even 1000HX just to get modular.

Everything else looks great.
