Final confirmation before purchase.

Just looking for some final assurance that I'm not completely handicapped with my choices before I buy.

Can't find any good deals on a Mobo, so I need one that can support sli/crossfire and one you know works/use yourself.
Also need Ram suggestion? 8gb (No idea on matching etc..)

Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129091 $99 After MIR and Promo code.
GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130604 $209 After MIR and Promo code.
PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171053 $70 After MIR and Promo code.
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072 $229

Assuming MIR are with the individual companys I'm good to go.

But aye, again just need a Mobo and RAM. Any help is always appreciated!


Edit: Is there anything else I will need to complete my build? Tie downs, twist ties, Thermal gunk that I have no idea what does etc..

  1. I'm not too big on that PSU or case but the thing is you should never factor rebates into your budget as you almost always have to pull the trigger immediately.

    The CPU and video card are excellent choices - no need to alter those.

    This would probably better choices:

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008
    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371051
  2. Both free shipping. I can deal with that. Still in need of a Mobo and RAm though
  3. You are over paying on the CPU.

    The 2500k you have linked is $229

    This 2500k is $209 and with the $15 promo code is only $194.
    A savings of $35 for the same product.

    Far as RAM GSKILL and Corsair are good brands.

    What are you going to do far as a hard drive?

    The one you linked is a 2500, non overclockable.
  5. Heh, Will be over clocking indeed.

    My Harddrive is a 500gb Western Digitial 7200 I believe.

    This is the motherboard I use and it's been great so far: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128506

    For RAM these would be good choices:

    - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148421
    - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314
    - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178382
  7. I did not see you mention a CPU cooler which you should get if overclocking, the hyper 212 + is recommended by many. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065
  8. Aye Zero, I realized after the fact and will be getting ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118003

    Realized its the weekend, so I may aswell wait till Monday morning before I order... Who knows. crazy price drops might happen next week lol.

    This would be a better choice of cooler for the same money:

    I am glad you pointed that out. I am aware of that too that the 2500 is not OC'able and the 2500K is.

    I must have been tired when I made that post.

    Thanks for correcting me.
