Hey guys, quite new to this whole building computers thing, but after a few months of asking around, reading through Toms hardware forum and general research I'm coming to the end of what I want my system to be. However I am still unsure on certain aspects of the build and generally putting it together, hence I'm posting here.
So anyway this is where I'm up to so far, please feel free to give constructive feedback and alternate suggestions to the build. Money is not really a problem but roughly aiming for around £1000.
Indeed, price isn't really an object although I would prefer to keep it from being a ridiculously expensive build. I have been informed that liquid cooling isn't recommended for a novice such as me, so looked into the Corsair A50/70, but as you said space is always the key, and not sure how well it will fit into the CM storm scout case?
The h60 would be a fairly easy install just as easy as any other cpu cooler, its not a complex liquid cooling system. Plus it'll definitely fit in your case and its got lots of good reviews.
The 560ti and 6950 are around the same level, the one I picked is a factory overclocked one so it'd perform better and be cooler. And just check that they fit in your case.
And if you are planning on cf or sli in the future I would pick a better psu and a bigger case, read some reviews of the cm scout and they say it can get tight for space especially with crossfire, non modular psu and a large cpu cooler. Didn't check the dimensions but someone said it couldn't fit a 6970
And that ram you picked should be fine, not the best but good for the price, I just like higher quality ram that can overclock better
Its just that if you plan on going crossfire in the future they'll be pushing that psu to the limit, you'll want a beefier psu from a better brand, high qulaity psu's are important. To me anyway, don't want them blowing up on me.
Ok here's a list of the stuff that I've in the cart. Link work's for me though
Hope these links work, all comes to under 1000. Obviously you can change some stuff to your liking, just a rough guide on what you can get. There's loads of cases out there, its more personal preference as long as its large enough for everything and has decent air cooling
