Opinion on Work & Gaming Rig Before Building Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Last response: December 18, 2011 2:28 AM in Systems Share zomgwtfsrsly December 11, 2011 6:26:40 PM Approximate Purchase Date: Mid-December - Early January I asked for a build suggestion a couple weeks ago. I was decided on the components but I suddenly had a slight increase in funds. So here is what I came up with. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Maya, Adobe suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Premiere Pro), Gaming (BF3, MW3, most are FPS.) CPU: i7 2600 or i5 2500k MOBO: Asrock z68 Pro3 Gen3 CASE: Cougar Solution ATX Gaming Chassis PSU: Corsair 600w CX600 V2 Builder Series HDD: 500gb caviar blue (will SSD later on) *RAM: 16GB Vengeance (CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9) *GPU: Sapphire 6970 Dual Fan *Currently in hand. --- I haven't bought them yet, but by next week I might be able to build it. I've searched for posts regarding the CPU. A lot of posts says the i5-2500k is enough to handle my needs, including rendering and such. So I'm thinking if I should get the i7 with HT, or just the i5. Should I be worried of my PSU, too? I changed it from an HEC Raptor to that Corsair. I'll buy everything in one go locally. Thank you in advance!
