  1. Anyone got any IDeas or thoughts?
  2. Yeah, get a good 650W PSU instead of the fairly small 520W and if you can afford it get a 6950 GPU, because you can unlock it to a 6970. Everything else looks good! What OS are you going to use?
  3. ^+1 on the bigger PSU. Since you will be going with a single card solution, it would be good to have enough juice to run pretty much any single GPU card out there. 620-650W PSU will let you do that.
  4. Maybe a Z68 board, GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 is similar.

    Different heatsink, Hyper 212+.

    Maybe a Crucial m4 64gb instead of the OCZ Agility 3.

    That PSU is fine for your build, but a 650W wouldn't hurt either.

    Also, that case is a bit sexy.
  5. thanks for your replys guys... :)
  6. Im going to be using windows 7.
  7. Good choices. The reviews on that PSU are excellent. I have the modular 620W version and it is great!

    I used NCIX. Use shopbot.ca to check out your parts for the best price and use NCIX's price match feature to get the best price. For example, the i5 sells at NCIX for $238 where you get get it at newegg.ca or directcanada.com for $219.99

    Hope that helps!
