Here is the base plan. A very good build but prices change, new parts come out, and deals can be found. What would you change on it? Seen any other builds that are similar that I should look at, this is a work in process so link away and I will update this page as needed. I will be watching and updating this post, linking alot and hopefully helping someone out!
Core i5-2500, -2500K, -2400, -2320, -2310, -2300
2500k is currently on the list. 2400 might be a solid idea, both earning spots as the best gpu for the money 190 and 219
This is giving me the most trouble, the listed mobo
EVGA P67 SLI Micro 120-SB-E672-KR LGA 1155 Intel P67 is 150, glancing biostar has one for 109, and it is longer (liquid cooling in the future?) Any ideas on mobo reviews? I do need to look up what will happen is my board goes from 16x / 16x to 8x / 8x seen here to not be a problem (followed link to article) http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/291475-30-2500k-mothe...
just like the cpu, how much speed is needed?
Always looking into benchmarks and their setups. The CrossfireX 6950 HD gpu's seem like the best option (overclocking considered)
Kingston HyperX got a glowing review but seems to be sold out everywhere. Any ideas?
Thanks for reading
The HD will most likely be an OCZ SSD when the price is lower. For any storage I have a 1.5 TB desktop running that. Monitor is not in the budget yet mostly i would game on my TV. I have a keyboard and mouse somewhere around here... Also looking at pre built for comparison http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... doesn't come close
