Hi community, i am planning to build a 3D gaming pc and i have some questions based on the part that i have chosen.

1. Are all the parts compatible with each other?

2. With the parts that are listed. can I play in SLI mode and in 3D?

3. Is the case big enough to hold the components?

  1. 1) Yes
    2) Yes when you add the second graphics card!
    3) Yes.
  2. Oh it seems I forgot to put a (2x) besides the GTX 580. So with the second video card and the monitor etc, i will be able to play in 3D, right?
  3. Yes!
  4. Ok and as for a sound card, do I need one or can i just use the motherboard's sound card?
  5. The onboard is fine for most uses. There are better cards on the market but you will need high quality speakers do reap the benefits.
  6. Ok thanks for your help. So im all set, i can go pick up the parts right now and its will boot up and work, right?
  7. It should just as long as no part is bad (DOA) and you have an OS to install on it
  8. ok and how about the voltage of the PSU? is it enough to sustain all the ocmponenets?
  9. Although CM PSU's are not my favorite it is plenty big for your system and is 80+bronze rated and gets a reasonably good review here
  10. I decided to change the Mobo and RAM. please tell em if everything is still compatible and able to run 3D.

    Mobo - Asus Rampage III GENE

    RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series DDR3 1600MHz
  11. That motherboard is socket LGA 1366 and is not compatible with the I7 2600K which is LGA 1155. The ram is compatible except it is a Triple channel kit specially for LGA1366.
    This board would be better and stick with 2x4GB ram kit.
  12. and with that Motherboard, everything would work right? (3D, SLI etc.)
  13. Yes!
  14. ok and what would you rate the build? is it gonna be able to run games good in 3D?
  15. Yes it is a great build! Fastest Quad core CPU on the market and 2x the fastest single GPU card on the market!
  16. ha yes it is but it does have a price tag of 3100 dollars. hey if oyu could find other parts, such as a cheaper HDD of 1TB or anything like that, im all for changes. I wanna lower the price as much as possible without downing the performance so ill keep the GPUs and CPU
  17. The GPU's and the CPU/mobo combo is what is holding up the price! If you want a great build copy this,2876.html Just use cheaper cards than GTX580!
  18. Do you know any good alternatives to the logitech g9x mouse? Also, do you know any good gaming keyboards under 75$? If you know any good keyboard or alternatives to that mouse, send me the canadacomputers link
