More about 1000 perfect sandy bridge build help
  1. Get a Z68 Motherboard I findthem to be more versatile than a P67

    Besides that I cant really say much about the PSU brand never tried them, and everything else looks great. You made a fine well balanced computer that will perform greatly for you. Whats your current monitor resolution?
  2. Best answer
    Isn't sacrificing the case for a 570 the better option like I laid out?

    Anyways, ymmv.
  3. SSDs are more beneficial for speed than the CPU and RAM combined, how can anyone not like SSD drives,lol. They are not optional for serious computer users.
  4. thanks to all the people that posted in helping me build this rig. If i could I would + everyones karma or point for there account.

    Please keep posting with links, ty.

    P.S. I chose the case because its very similar and its red with great cooling , I agree your case is nice though.
    And now hopefully I get these at a bargan price on black friday :).

    Still no found a best answer bty (by the way)


    And if you find a better motherboard by all means post it.
    The reason I'm going with that motherboard, is for the main reasons

    *Cheapest
    *2 Pci slots for wifi and soundcard
    *MSI is a good brand
    *ATX sized

    If you can find a better motherboard with thos specs listed above by all means, POST.

    I'm trying to perfect this sandy bridge.
  5. +1 for the 570 the pirate proposes
