Hey guys. First time builder here. I'm a student learning web development so Ive decided to get a nice PC for myself. It will be used mainly for programming/coding/design work but also would like to play some games on it. Ive been waiting years for Skyrim to come out so would be a big plus if I can max skyrim out as well.
nice choices there.
If you don't care about gen3 get the gigabyte z68xp-ud3. If you do then the asrock extreme3(or extreme 4 for more usb3, sata3 and 40 more euros) gen3.
The cooler you picked ain't gonna cut it. I like the Corsair A70(all rounder), the Xigmatek Aegir (Pricey but silent and very good)
If you are going to stay with 1 card your psu will do nicely even if you overclock cpu and card. If you are going to sli along the road i would propose you get a 850watt psu.
580 sounds great. Also i like the prospect of a 6950 or a 570 now and another one later on The thing is, if work is very important on the comp the single card sounds more reasonable than the two which are purely game oriented. If you are thinking of sli the 580s though we gotta go even higher on the psu... close to 1000watt. If you won't sli though you just wasted a good amount of money sitting in the back of your rig.
I would get 128giga ssd
