Hey Everyone,

It's been forever and a day since I've built a new pc. I just started getting the Blue Screen treatment from my old desktop so I figured instead of wasting anymore time and money on my old one I'd just break down and build a new gaming pc. I just wanted some opinions on the parts I've picked and some suggestions on if I should change anything.

Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
GIGABYTE G1.ASSASSIN2 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory
CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Professional Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Semi Modular Power Supply
OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

As far as a video card goes, I have a EVGA GTX 280 in my old pc that I'll use until the release the 690 dual chip card.

I appreciate any feedback. Thanks again.

Ken

Looks good all you need is one of these...
Corsair Obsidian 550D Black

To fit that new H100 and the rest of the hardware into and one of these....
MSI GeForce GTX 680 Graphics Card 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-e 3.0 Kepler

As the 690 will be a long time coming and this 680 will be a huge leap in performance from your 280, also you can SLI your 680 with another at a later date.

I have thought about just getting a 680 and sli it later. That is a nice case but I have the Cooler Master Cosmos 1000. It's older but probably the same size. It's built like a tank.

BTW, is there a time table for the 690? I'm not in that big of a hurry to get a new card. If it's 4-6 months away i can wait. More than that and I'll probably SLI some 680's.
