Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum and seemed everyone here know the field :) 

I have a question, here's my situation,
I'm building a PC soon, probably next week with Intel i7 2600k 3.4Ghz( yes, I intend to OC in the future ) with a Gigabyte mobo ( Gigabyte Intel Z68 ATX DDR3 2133 LGA 1155 GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 ), 8GB of Hyperx RAM, Win 7, 1TB HDD, and others.

I also plan to buy the GTX 580 in the future but I will suspend until I get enough money to buy it.

My noobish question is :
1. Is it possible to boot the Windows 7 with only integrated i7 graphics card ( Intel HD 3000 ) ?
2. Is the mobo i mention a good combination for this rig ?

Thanks a LOT in advance!
Hansen.

That should not happen, though if I does you can just install the drivers from the intel website easy. Yes you can play low games on the HD3000 still not a dedicated card, but intergrated ones have gotten much better over the years, I can play oblivion on my laptop Icore 5 hd3000...btw you picked a nice motherboard.

Its won several editors choice awards, It has switchable graphics, very nice sound quality and good bios management ect, you might want to flash the BIOS though as they will be out of date (as with all motherboards) .

On overclocking:
Get a good fan and heat sink don't go with the stock I can recommend some if you like. Also you can overclock it yourself simply read this

I'm planning to clock to like 4.4Ghz or 4.5Ghz maybe,
and thinking of Antec Kuhler 620 H2O cooler <- this will hold the job right?

Also, if i put GTX 580 (which is a power hungry i believe ?) with overclocked intel, is 750w enough for these?

thanks for the link though :)

alright so here's my full specs. Please help me decide the PSU :) 

1. Antec Kühler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System
2. Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM - WD1002FAEX
3. Kingston Hyper X X1 Black Series 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Kit XMP LE
4. Gigabyte Intel Z68 ATX DDR3 2133 LGA 1155 Motherboards GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
5. Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98
6. Intel Core i7-2600K Processor 3.4GHz 8 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 (will be overclocked)

thinking of this one for the PSU

I would stick with the one 850 one you had above. Never cheap out on the power supply because with out a good one all you have is a bunch of very expensive plastic and metal :p

Go with what you want, I think the should be okay. I just prefer larger power supplies if I was building a gaming rig ( I am guessing that is what this is)..Love the case BTW
