I know more about software and have a degree in Information Systems so this is new territory for me. I have done some research and have decided to choose the parts below. Let me know what I should change or what may work better for high end gaming.
NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case...this is a maybe
One other question I would have then is should I get the Antec Kuhler 620 or 920?? I'm guessing the 620 is enough but like I said before I'm a newbie and I decided I would go with the G-Skill 8GB in case that matters. I also want to know if it is worth my money to do two GTX 570s so let me know what you think. I'll put a list of the parts I chose later.
^ The 620 should suffice for a good overclock,...
As for the graphics card, if you are not getting Nvidia for Physx or CUDA, then IMO the 6950/ 6970 Crossfire would provide better performance for the money,...
Yes those threads are great for me, especially for my first time build. I'm taking my time so I'll read over the articles first so I can feel I'm making a more informed decision thanks again for everyone's help I really appreciate it! I may be back with more questions if any arise
The total came to around $1,600 with rebates and including a 23'' LED Monitor which I couldn't resist. Thanks again to everyone for your help and the threads I really appreciate and I'm definitely reading over as many of them as I can before my order arrives!
