I am a first time builder/poster so I will try to use the format provided. My tech knowledge is fairly limited. I am buying all these components tomorrow at the Memory Express boxing sale, but before I do I would like to know if anyone has feedback on the components or suggestions to make it better. I have referenced all parts through benchmarks and have a budget of ~$1,600. I apologize about the short notice, I understand if people are too busy to respond.
P.S. Will only use the HDD for data storage, the SSD will only house OS and games. Any advice/opinions/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas! I will also only be purchasing 1 video card for now, but will most likely SLI in the future.
Okay so I took your advice and swapped out the 5600rpm 2TB HDD with a 500GB 7200rpm (my storage needs are fairly low). I have read in multiple articles that hyper treading is going to be integrated in more applications and I am aiming to make this rig last 4 years. I will be buying a 240hz television down the road so I figured a monitor for dual screening is not worth splurging on. As for the psu, the one I picked is modular - which I was told was much better in terms of tidiness. The ratings look similar and the price is 99.99 (on sale). What do you suggest if I cannot wire my computer to the internet?
