Hell all, I will be building a new computer before the end of the year, for gaming and gaming only. I am keeping the computer i am on now for everything else. Would all of these parts work well together? Should I change something? Thanks in advanced.
Thank you very much, I forgot all about lite-on. Had a few awhile back never failed me. Will change to 2 of those and the Vertext2 maybe the 3. I will also get the i5-2500k, if i would OC it would everything i have work? or would a 750w PSU be to much for all of it?
650w is enough for OC cpu + unlocking and OC the gpu, otherwise I wouldn't have suggested it. And will you be posting again before you buy? I'm not sure when you are going to buy but undoubtedly prices will change.
Actually I didn't look at the dimensions and it is close to a mid tower but at the price there are better options. From a cheaper antec 300, haf 912, to higher antec 900, haf 932, cm 690 II. There are a lot of good cases to accommodate people's different tastes and that is part of the decision. The in-win is a good case and if you like the looks, then get it; don't let me stop you.
Thank you very much for you time. I will be getting the Antec TruePower 650, and that CPU Cooler you suggested. I will keep my case, since it should all fit nicely, I don't know about the CPU Cooler since there is a 220mm fan on the side of the case some people say they need to take it out to fit a big cpu fan. Hopefully it all works. Can you put any fans on that CPU cooler or only certain ones?
What's drawing you to the 2600k over the 2500k .... if you are planning on any apps that take advantage of hyper threading, then you'd also likely benefit from lower latency RAM. Id put some CAS 7 RAM with the 2600k or use the CAS 9 RAM with the 2500k. If it's a gaming build w/ just one GFX card, I'd go w/ the CAS 9 and 2500k; two GFX cards I'd get the CAS 7. Low profile RAM will avoid fit issues w/ 3rd party coolers.
the XFX 850W Black Edition came looking to make a splash, and ended up doing a cannonball big enough to just about drown the competition. Voltage regulation is nothing short of fantastic, efficiency is excellent, and ripple and noise is just about nonexistent.
Ya might also want to consider the self contained water units .... the top 4 are compared here and they make any case fit and memory interference issues disappear. You will have issues though with MoBos capable of using 3 GFX cards as they will hit the top GFX card. The H70 and 920 are a bit noisy.
MoBo - You have sized your PSU for two GFX cards which makes me think you are considering such an addition as a later upgrade .... if so, good idea.....not as something 2 years down the line but say come XMas times when game devs will be out to outshine Metro 2033. However ya MoBo won't do CF / SLI as 2nd slot can only do X4. This combo will cost ya $45 less than your original MoBo / CPU combo
