Closed Help completing build :D Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: February 2, 2012 6:01 PM in Systems Share crazynuts16 February 1, 2012 10:15:54 PM Build List CPU - i7-2600k Motherboard - Asus Z68 pro Ram - NEED OPINION - Want atleast 8gb, preferably 16gb HSF - XSPC Rasa RX240 CPU loop HDD - Spinpoint 1tb HDD Hd103sj x2 SSD - Crucial M4 128gb PSU - NEED OPINION - 700 Watts at the minimum GPU - Gigabyte 6850 Case - Cooler Master Storm Scout Will probably crossfire in the future so need high psu - Budget Left for PSU and RAM is about 150 dollars, can stretch it if its worth it. Have bad experience with g-skill so would rather not get that. Thanks!! EDIT: hows this psu, SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply More about : completing build g-unit1111 February 1, 2012 10:25:16 PM These would be my suggestions: Case is OK - this would be a better choice (IMO but it's all personal preference): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You also don't need the 2600K for a gaming solution. You can get by with the 2500K and be fine. Put the difference from that and the cooling solution into getting a far better GPU, something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And wait on getting a second HDD until the prices drop. Put that money back into your GPU fund. You want the best GPU you can get for the money and the 6850 is a bottom-mid line GPU at best compared to the 7950 or 7970. I'd heavily advise against water cooling, go for a good air setup instead. Air is far safer and won't void your warranty if something goes wrong. Read this: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cooling-airflow-hea... As for the rest: PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Score 0 crazynuts16 February 2, 2012 4:48:54 AM I already have all the parts EXCEPT the psu and ram, yes i wish i had gotten a bigger case the first time around, but its been a while and i actually like my case. Any other suggestions for the psu, thats a lot more power than i need. And I really am tired of gskill memory Score 0 Related resources Seeking Help Completing an Affordable Gaming Build - Case, PSU & GPU - Forum Need help completing the build - Forum help completing my build - Forum Help completing my build - which GPU? - Forum First time build - gaming and media at $800-$1000 - need help completing parts - Forum Can't find your answer ?

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) cas 9 - $50 CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) cas 8 - $80 I'd say go with the cas 9 for $50, comes in red, blue, or black Share crazynuts16 February 2, 2012 7:22:19 AM Best answer selected by crazynuts16.

Score 0 ebola28 February 2, 2012 4:36:42 PM you wont find a better GPU at 120 that is better than the 6850. the 6850 is a great budget card. at that price point, you are looking at 6770's, so if you can get the 6850 for 120, do it Score 0 crazynuts16 February 2, 2012 5:50:40 PM yeah i got the gigabyte 6850 overclocked at 120 so just going to keep it Score 0 Mousemonkey February 2, 2012 6:01:41 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey Score 0 Can't find your answer ?
