Hi, this is going to be my first ever computer build. I have done a little playing around in my current desktop such as changing out the graphics and what not, but i think its time for me to pay up and go all out seeing as its hitting the 5 year mark
Ive done alot of research and pretty happy with my build just looking to get the final ok from you guys Compatability check and what not

-I understand that i would get away with the 2500k for gaming, however i dont mind gettign this even though ivy is just around the corner as im not looking to upgrade straight away and i want my basis covered incase i need it for some video editing and rendering im looking into doing. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
It looks pretty good to me. The only thing that I can see that you might want to consider is an upgrade from a 2600k to a 2700k processor. According to other posts and forums, the 2700k is very similar to the 2600k (if not identical) except that the 2700k is better for overclocking. Also for just thirty dollars more a sightly better processor will give you a stronger build that is still withing your budget.
Hi guys, thanks for your prompt replies In regards to the 2700k i think i will make that change thanks
Also would the AX850 be sufficient for 2 of the graphics cards or would i be better to go for the AX1200 and play it safe?
