RATE MY GAMING RIG! (FINAL REVISION)

Hello everyone!

Final revision before buying my new rig, trying to go for a $ 1200(ish) gaming and work rig, maybe going dual GPU in a future, overclocking for sure.

CPU: INTEL i5 2500k (BX80623I52500K)
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Pro (REV 3.0)
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws 1600 (F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM)
GPU: SAPPHIRE 6950 2gb (21188-00-40r / 100312SR)
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 (HD103SJ)
PSU: CORSAIR TX750 V2 (CMPSU-750TXV2)
CASE: COOLER MASTER HAF 922 (RC-922M-KKN1-GP)

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance! :D

  1. I like it .

    Probably worth adding a cpu cooler
  2. solidstate
  3. No SSD?

    *Sadfase*
  4. I'd swap out that TX PSU with a modular design, something like the HX or AX series from Corsair.

    Curious as to why you say that, better cable management?

    Yup, Just personal preference really. I like to have a tidy PC with as little cables on display as possible and good airflow, not really a major issue for OP as the case he/she has choosen has ample space for cables. I just think its worth the bit extra $.

    you forgot the optical drive, you could go for a less pricey mobo, with similar if not same features:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130583

    and as above a CPU cooler would be good if you want to overclock in the future, or just keep your temps low.

    you could also switch out for this PSU on offer from $140 to $90! would give same performance as the corsair, just better efficiency (80+ silver not bronze):
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371026

    you could use the $75 saved to buy an after market cooler and an optical drive.

    I'll be adding a 212+ in about a month.

    Budget. :(

    Not THAT necessary in my opinion, more of a luxury item (just like a second GPU or HDD on raid). Also, overpriced IMO. Maybe in a future.

    Again, budget. :(

    I do like the 750HX, but I don't really need it since the HAF 922 has plenty of space and good cable management.

    I don't really need an optical drive. Actually, the one I had stopped working since I didn't used it once in 2+ years. More of an USB guy I guess.

    Since I live in Colombia, my pool of components is restricted. At first I actually had my eyes set on an ASROCK P67 extreme4, but I just couldn't get it here, and after importing it would actually cost me the same as the ASUS P8P67 pro...

    Same with the EarthWatts, I don't really benefit from the newegg savings and specials. I'd had to pay the $ 139.99 stock price.

    -------------------------------------

    BTW, it looks like I may have a problem.

    Seems like both the HDD and the GPU I chose are currently out of stock.

    I may need to choose different components then.

    Could you recommend me a similar product (performance and price) to those I had in mind? I don't really have a preference brand or chip-wise (either Seagate or WD is fine for HDD, same goes with AMD or Nvidia for GPU).

    Thanks in advance! :D
