Hi , so with the upcoming BF3 i have to change my old dinosaur PC, ive cheked some forums and chose parts all from newegg , i would like to run all maxed out with 1920x1200 res , also this is my 1st build i would really aprecciate any kind of help.
CASE : CORSAIR Carbide series 500R
MOBO : ASUS P8Z68 V PRO or ASrock z68 Extreme4 GEN3
CPU : INTEL I5 2500k
GPU'S : 2x EVGA SC GTX 580
PSU : CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX
RAM : CORSAIR Vengeance 8gb ( 2x4 ) 1600
HDD : Western Digital Caviar blue 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0gb
SSD : CRUCIAL M4 64gb
OD : ASUS DRW
COOLING : APEVIA CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue LED Case Fan x 3
COOLER MASTER Megaflow 200 R4-LUS-07AB-GP 200mm Blue LED Case Fan x 1
Questions : Will everything fit ?
Is this MOBO any good for this kind of sli setup?
Should i get a Noctua heatsink or H100 WC system?
Do i have enough power?
Anything i should change or check , is this a good build overall.
I plan on maybe overclocking the cpu but im new to it i will probably do tho.
getting 2 580's in sli on just 850 seems like it could be kind of weak, although i honestly couldn't say for sure, most tend to use a 1000w psu with high-end sli, that could be overkill for your setup although (not a lot of help, admittedly, Lol)
thanks for the answer , i chosed that because some dude told me 650w for a single 580 and 850 for a sli of them , but honestly im still not sure dont want to order this ending up i dont have enough power.
Thanks for answer but i feel more comfortable with newegg's massive range of components and shipping is really not what's blocking me i have spare money. Could you give any opinions on the questions i answered?
if it were me, i would go with a 1000w psu just to be certain i would not encounter any problems with power draw, plus you are future-proofed for upgrades later on if that is a concern it really just depends on how comfortable you feel being on the border of power consumptionn
ASUS P8Z68 V PRO or ASrock z68 Extreme4 GEN3?
Debatable since the Asus P8Z68 V Pro is a Very good MB and so is the Asrock z68 Extreme4 Gen3. If your looking for a Future Proof Type of build then I'd say take the Asrock since It offers PCIe 3.0 and Ivy Bridge support. If your looking for a Solid OC board, Take the Asus.
1-) First Question: Yes
2-) Second Question: Both are good for SLI, They both support dual at x8 / x8 mode
so performence will not diference much from dual 16x by about 1-3%.
3-) Third Question: There are factors you have to consider when choosing a H/S, After 4.5Ghz there isn't much Performence gain on gaming from a Intel Core i5-2500k so it comes down to what kind of OC you will be doing and what kind of tempature you will like to be getting. If its a OC under 4.5Ghz go for the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo BUT if you are aiming for something over 4.7Ghz go for the Noctua.
4-) Fourth Question: Yes, Technically you do have enough power. HERE IS THE INFO SO I DON'T GET BITCH SLAPPED FOR TALKING NONSENSE.
