Looking to spend around 1200 dollars. I have the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers. I want the system to be somewhat future proof. I will be doing some overclocking with the cpu. I will be using the computer for gaming.


Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Mid Tower Gaming Case CC-9011013-WW - Corsair


Corsair Enthusiast Series 750-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply


Intel Core i5-2500K3.3 GHz 6 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 Processor - Intel


Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit


Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (CWCH100) - Corsair


ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Motherboard - Asus


OCZ Technology 60 GB Agility 3 SATA III Solid State Drive AGT3-25SAT3-60G - OCZ Technology


EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD Superclocked 1280 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 Dual DVI/HDMI/Display Port SLI Ready

Do you have a normal hard drive as well? I love the SSD but it won't do you much good when you can only put 1 or 2 games on it before filling up the space. You also didn't include windows 7 in your cost. Other than that its great.

P.S. You shouldn't call us asses :p

Pretty good build, the PSU is a bit overkill you could do something like a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for $50 after rebate. You don't include $100 for Windows 7, but solid build nonetheless.


Hmm I guess I had not really looked into the psu. I am not really sure how much is needed for a system like mine. Can anyone point me to a site to check out power usage? I also have had quite a bit of trouble with psus in the past, probably due to buying cheap, so I do want a good quality one if anyone can point me in the right direction.

Solid build man. See a lot of Corsair parts there. Almost every part you've picked is in a combo somewhere on Newegg.

It'll probably save you $50+ that way.

Lol ya it does seem that I am a bit of a corsair junkie. I endorse two companies evga and corsair their prices may be a bit higher than others, but the products are awesome, customer service is understandable and they know what they are talking about, and the warranties are amazing.

Speaking of warranties the pcu zorphon recommended http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=S... seems pretty nice with a seven year warranty, can anyone verify this is a good company and or product. The reviews seem pretty positive on the site, but its hard for me to give up on a company that has treated me so well :p .
