I am new to the world of PC building and have been researching for quite awhile. I am planning on building my first gaming rig sometime next month, and I'm wondering whether this build will be viable a year or so down the road. Or if I should just wait until later this year for newer hardware releases.
Case: Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM Mid-Tower Gaming Case CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor MB: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS GPU: MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive ODD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM PSU: CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 (CMPSU-850HX) 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Case Fans: 600T comes stock with 2 x 200mm front and top, with 120mm rear fan. side panel has 4 available slots for 120mm fans. which I would fill all slots with Rosewill RFA-120-K 120mm Case Fan. Thats alot of air. Would have the Side fans on the stock fan controller, and connect the 2 x 200mm and the 120 rear fan to a Scythe KM01-BK "KAZE MASTER" 5.25" Bay Fan Controller the extra controller on the Kaze Master could be used for a 120mm or smaller on the internal drive bays because I will be removing the top cage.
I would be upgrading to MSI Hawk GTX 560 Ti's in 2-way Sli soon after the initial build. Would also add a SSD for caching or boot drive later on. The reason for the 850W PSU is that it was the same price as one of the 750W by Corsair. I do plan on OC'ing the i5 and maybe the RAM. So not sure if I would be over doing it on the case fans. With the controllers I should be able to keep the noise level down and still have good air flow.
The total on Newegg was $1,437. But that also included my mouse and keyboard which would be the Logitech G110 keyboard and the Logitech G9x mouse.
Anyways, thank you to anyone who can give feedback. I really hope to get into the world of PC building on the right foot.
