Also looks like to build this build at Cyberpower w/ pro wiring and liquid cooling will be $100 difference. Might just do that instead.

New build! Do I need the full tower if I dont have SLI. Still plan to OC CPU and GPU
Will this play all current and near future games full everything settings at 1920x1080?

CASE: Rosewill THOR V2 Full Tower
CPU: i5-2600k SB 3.2ghz
CPU fan: Coolermaster Hyper 212
MOBO: ASUS p8Z68-V PRO
RAM: Corsair Dominator 8gb
GPU: EVGA GTX 580
PSU: PC Power Silencer MKII 950w
HDD: 1xSeagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 6.0gb Sata
1xCrucial M4 128GB SSD (2.5" is that right seems small?)
Drive: Samsung Blu-ray Combo drive

If you using it for games most people will tell you to go with the i5 2500k

For heatsink go with the hyper 212 . Or buy a really good water cooling kit for 200 dont get a prebuilt loop.

There are better cases as well, and with 2 580 your going to want a full tower with plenty of airflow.

The PSU is fine

If your looking for HD speed get a SSD, the mechanical drive will not be able to take full advantage of the sata 6 ports.

1.Get a 2500K for starters.

2. 16 GB of RAM is too much, id rather have 8 GB of fast RAM, but either way, its so cheap :lol: 

3. Not a bad choice of motherboard, I may have gone with another, but its good.

4. Why buy 2x GTX 580s? No game needs anywhere near that GPU power and not to mention the fact that its a bit of a waste when the next gen 28nm cards are just months away.

5. Bad case for an enthusiast build, get this instead:

6. Good solid PSU, but this is better and cheaper:

7. With the money saved elsewhere in the build, id get one 1TB HDD, like a samsung F3, and get 1 64-128GB SSD.

According to benchmarks to play new direct x11 games at full over 60 fps you need to SLI. And I went i7 cause I was told games are starting to incorporate hyperthreading

Ditch the arctic silver paste its old-school there are better pastes out now. Check out the IC diamond.

There is nothing wrong with SLI, and if you have the money by all means. But a single card should run fine at 1920 x 1080 its only when you start pushing the crazy res and multiple monitors that you need dual cards.

Rosewill wouldn't be on any list I'd make for any component. DFD-85 / HAF-X / Level 10 GT top my list

MoBo is last generation (GEN3 is here).... not an issue for most peeps. Here's the latest and greatest (on sale Monday)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cooler - Hyper 212 is a great budget cooler .... but a budget cooler doesn't belong in a build w/ twin 580s which I see you must be anticipating given the 950 watt PSU. For top performance and quiet operation, I like the Silver Arrow
http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten...

RAM - I'd take the Vengeance over the Dominators
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HD - I'd still get the SATA III HD. Yes, we all know that no mechanical drive can pull data off the platters at even SATA II speeds but what many forget is that a lot of the stuff that gets sent back and forth goes to / from those bug 64 MB big caches and they DO benefit from SATA III speeds. If the budget can handle, I like the Barracuda XT
http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten...

SSD - THG has a new chart
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-nand-reliabilit...

TIM - Shin Etsu tops the charts for thermal transference but doesn't have the curing issues that AS5 has. Here's the top 5 results of an 80-way test:

Quote:
Tuniq TX-3 (0) Aluminum Oxide Moderate 37.65°C A+
Gelid GC-Extreme (0) Aluminum Oxide Low / Thin 37.65°C A+
Thermaltake Grease A2150 (4) Polysynthetic Silver Low / Thin 37.65°C A+
Arctic Silver 5 Polysynthetic Thermal Compound (4) Polysynthetic Silver Low / Thin 37.55°C A+
Shin-Etsu MicroSi G751 (0) Aluminum Oxide Moderate 37.55°C A+

(0) No Curing Time or Special Application Suggested
(4) Arctic Silver 5 Application Instructions (requires up to 200-hours recommended curing time)


The single 580 will get ya 616 fps (Guru3D game test suite) for $500 .... I assume with the 950 watt PSU, the plan is to get a 2nd one .... but we're at the end of the GFX card cycle w/ new cards coming out for XMas .... will you be able to get one when ya figure its time ? Consider twin 560 Tis (900Mhz) which will get ya 40% more performance today (862 fps) for between $410 and $460 depending on model.

Rosewill is probably the best cooling case on the market now, better than the DF's and HAF's atleast. I understand they used to have a cheaper reputation, but just look at the reviews for it, for $120, it really is impossible to beat at the price.

The haf x is still going to be better at cooling, the Rosewill doesn't look like it has a opening on top.

It does, and:

Those are some of the best cooling cases on the market and it beats them, and its like $80 less than the HAF X.
