Looking for opionions on this build
This is the current build I am looking to purchase. Any advice is welcome and i will not try and lash back with rebuttals or anything. It's why I am asking.
Secondly. If money isnt a problem you should hit the 590 town. Population you. And a few other rich B*****ds xD
Thirdly. On every single one of these components, I urge you to double and triple check all reveiws. From Guru3d, to tomshardware, to Hardwareheaven. And I dont mean the reference ones. I mean if you have an EVGA 580, you look it up and find reviews for THAT CARD.
Its a nice build. But with Ivy Bridge round the corner you might wanna save yourself some cash and go Sandy Bridge with Z68 Rev 3. A 2600k will blast anything out the water for less than half the price of the only 2 things above it, and then when Ivy Bridge is released you wont be forced to hit yourself when looking at the benches compared to Sandy Bridge E...considering you paied $600 for it.
The H80 is a good cooler. But for an extra $20 you can get the H100. Its shaves about 4 degrees off. Which is a huge amount.
A Better storage HDD is needed. go for a WD Caviar Black at 6gbps SATA III
I Would avoid anything on PSUs that isnt Corsair...or Antec, or maybe Seasonic. Preferably Corsair. You pay premium for something that can take the load 24/7 365 or until you die.
Anything I havent Mentioned is good as far as I can see, and needs nothing changing.
I STONGLY suggest you dont dismiss my advise to skip LGA2011, at least consider it and take into account all possibilities.
What I suggest is spend the minimum on a future proof PC right now, say I5 2500k wth an Asus P8Z68 Pro Rev 3 mobo, 8Gb DDR3 1600 Ram and either a 570 or a 6970 or even lower. Overclock the S**t out of it and then drop an Ivy Bridge and a 7000 series in when they're released.
The 2500k system I suggested can OC to 4.8ghz on water GUARANTEED, which is BLISTERING.
You may want to consider getting the 3 gig 580 instead of 1.5 if you plan on ever going 3 monitors to take advantage of eyefinity, or 3dsurround. Also I would go with corsair force3 series . They have a 180gig for 250- which would give your 120 gigs more for the same price. I agree change that power supply, with a system like yours going cheap with a power supply is a sure fire way to trouble. Also like deadjon said, go and read reviews on your specific products you wish to buy. I like cruisin newegg simply because they tend to have the most reviews, keep in mind that some ppl just dont know what there doin there.
