Hello, i'm building a new gaming pc
I'll be playing BF3, MW3, diablo 3, CS: GO, Most hyped games.

Please rate/suggest other components


Case: Corsair Carbide 500R
PSU: Corsair HX750
Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V Pro
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
GPU: MSI GTX570 Twin Frozr III OC
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB (2x)
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (2x)
(I might add a SSD later on)

I'm still looking for a CPU Cooler (i'm thinking of the Thermalright Archon)

Do you think this is a good build ?
Any suggestions of changing something ?

Thanks in advance.

well,, if your going all corsair, you case supports corsairs Hydro series coolers.. I got the corsair obsidian and have the H100

but the H80 works great and looks awesome in cases

lil pricey for coolers, but if you ever OC, they are awesome.

Thats a good mobo, but for the price, i'd go with Asus's Sabertooth

just some thoughts. Good build other than that.

Thanks for the advice
i'll look into that sabertooth mobo, as for the cooler, i'd rather use aircooling for now.

Because of price.. or cuz it uses water?

A little of both, i'm pretty sure it's safe but i'm a bit paranoid when it comes to water + electronics
for the price, i'm looking for around the price of the archon.

Understandable.. I will say though, pre-installed closed loop water systems are the way to go if you want a maintenance free and safe water cooling. You run no chance of spills or leakage with them unless they are punctured. Just some food for thought.

You might want to look at getting a hybrid drive. The Seagate 500GB has 4GB of SSD. My understanding is it provides 80% of the speed boost for very little extra.

thanks alot.

As for the mobo i'd like to use the integrated GPU from the CPU, why ?
I'm gonna use 2 monitors but the problem is they will both run on a different resolution.
From what i've read Nvidia GPU's (or atleast the 570 serie) have problems with that (they run in full load even when doing nothing on the pc)

As for my understanding of the lucid virtu i could use 1 monitor on the integrated gpu and the other on my discrete GPU.

Correct me if i'm wrong.
