Hi yall, I'm pretty new here and recently scrapped an overly expensive Cyberpower PC that I had customized and now have about $1200 to work with, though I'd like to stay in the $1000-$1150 range if possible. I intend to use this system for MMO gaming tailored more to games like EVE Online and the upcoming Old Republic as well as use it for 3D rendering in Maya and AutoCad. I don't need something that is going to burn my pubes off with speed, but I'd like a good system I can use for these applications for the next several years. I'm buying everything from Newegg because I've used them before and think they are very reliable and have great prices/rebates/offers. This is my first time building a PC and I feel like I've researched extensively on these components but I lack the expertise and general knowledge about computer building to know for sure how if everything fits together/compatible or if the PSU is enough wattage. Okay so here we go and thanks for commenting -NOTE: I listed the Newegg prices too, they're not part of the urls
An incompatibility you have is between the CPU and mobo. The CPU needs to be installed into a Socket LGA1155 motherboard, the one you have atm is X58. Presumably you will want to change the motherboard to something from 1155, probably P67 or Z68, unless maybe you want to install three graphics card (altho there might be some 1155 motherboards which are capable of that).
P67 supports overclocking and multiple graphics cards, but lacks two extra features of Z68, one of which is SSD Caching (allowing a small SSD - less than ~120GB IIRC - to help speed up frequently used programs) and the other is Quick Sync, an encoding technology.
P67s are likely to be a bit cheaper.
A good Z68 for ~$200 is the Asrock Z68 Extreme4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That Thermaltake cooler looks really weird to me, never heard of or seen that before so don't know if it's any good or not. According to the compatibility list on newegg it won't work with an 1155 motherboard (unless that board also has 775 mounting holes).
