Don't go with that case! Your gtx 570 will make that a furnace. For that price you could go with NZXT Phantom, Antec 1200, or if you want to stay mid size HAF 922.
SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX60G 2.5" 60GB $120. Great speeds and you'll notice that your computer feels faster as opening folders/starting programs feel instant. Boot times are also quick.
RAM: Does the B stand for black or blue? Oh and I'd pick corsair over kingston
CPU: Is this for gaming? then i5 2500k. If you are going to be doing lots of video/photo editing, video transcoding, 3d rendering, stuff requiring more cpu output and benefiting from the hyperthreading then go with i7.
Mobo: haven't tried the thermal protection but it's another way of reducing motherboard heat.
PSU: Never head of chieftec..but I believe if you want 2x570s then you need 850W
Just wondering, why would it make it a furnace ?
I already bought the PSU so no need to change it anyway.
From those cases you offer, in the biggest shop in israel i can only find the Antec which i actually like alot.. crazy ass number of fans (6) with optional 2 more on the side, but doesnt it make it a Noisy computer ?
Regarding the CPU, im looking to do Both gaming on maxed out 1680X1050 (my current monitor.. oh well) and Photoshop/After effects (rendering) with good speeds..
A question as i see your rig on ur sig, can you play with that rig any of those high end games on maxed out details and resolution ? The Witcher 2 and such
The Corsair 600T doesn't have good air flow. I just meant the 570 is a pretty hot card to begin with and having a case with little airflow will just trap all that heat in there. The antec 1200 has a lot of fans but they are large with low rpm making it not very loud with great airflow.
My rig works fine for the games I'm playing. I don't have witcher 2, crysis, metro2033 and whatnot but I can say it handles Portal 2, Rift, WoW, oblivion on their highest settings. My rig is mostly for Skyrim and SWTOR when they come out but it should be able to handle those other games I'd think at or close to their settings with a decent frame rate.
The resolution will be based more on your gpu than cpu. If you are doing a lot of photoshop/after effects you might consider the 2600k.
GFX - Very good board, just don't mess w/ voltage above manufacturer's published limits.
PSU - I'd bring it back, nota good brand and undersized for two 570's
SSD - 40 - 60GB will keep you going 3-4 months ..... unless you are very adept at shrinking windows footprint (removing patch undo files, moving user files, temp files, etc), I get a 120 gigger.
Is it really that performance changer ?
Depends ... are you looking to post great benchmarks or are you looking to have a life changing experience ? If the latter, no, you are not going to be bowled over. Here's the results of my testing on a SB system:
ATTO Benchmark - More than 3.76 to 1 is impressive
Vertex 3 SSD - 550ish
Barracuda XT HD -146ish
Boot to Windows Desktop (password Screen) - 1.36 to one, not so much
Vertex 3 SSD - 15.6
Barracuda XT HD - 21.2
My SLI OCed 570s with a OCed i5-2500k pull around 800W at full tilt on a benchmarking run, so I got a HX850 to give me some overhead. They can cleanly pull around 900W or so, with spikes up to 1000W. It's a great PSU.
