Hey guys, just picking my parts for my new gaming build. What I'm going to using this for is mostly games, watching movies, surfing the web and multi-tasking. Also I want it to handle all the games such as Skyrim, BF3, Metro 2033, Crysis, at the highest settings, and upcoming games as well. I do plan on overclocking the CPU and GPU.
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 1600 (PC3 12800)
Video card: MSI Lightning 6970 (buying one now and I plan on buying one more in a year or two and setting crossfire)
Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200
PSU: OCZ ZX Series 850W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60, (but I'm looking into getting H70 or H80)
More aboutgaming build suggestions welcome
looks good but I would stay away from OCZ psus they are not the greatest, and for a cpu cooler I'd get a hyper 212+
I kinda wanted to stay away from those huge heat sinks and also because they take up ram slots and so it runs quieter.
no it (the hyper 212+) will not cover your dimms, if you insist on self contained water cooler id get the h80. For the money get a psu from a reputable manufacturer of psus such as antec, corsair, seasonic, or XFX
