Confirming my build before i buy.

I'm at my final stage before i buy the components for my new computer, so i'm gonna check if everything are going to run smooth once assembled.

Please remind me if there is something i have forgotten anything or if there is anything not compatible with each other.


Do i need anything else like a network card or something?

  1. Are you sure you want that expensive case? There are other cool cases that are cheaper such as the:
    CM HAF X

    and the Corsair Obsidian 650D

    Everything else looks fine, although you really don't need a 850W PSU, a 750W would be more than enough for SLI in the future.

    Finally: You don't need a network card if you're going to use the ethernet cable. If you are going wireless, then you need a wireless adapter, although if you're gaming, I do not recommend wireless
  2. I guess i buy a cable fir my network. Im investing in a complete computer for the last time so ill spend a little ekstra, total it cost around $3000 but now i dont have to update my computer for years and i plan to use that case for a long time.
  3. You are missing an operating system. You do plan to use windows right? Or do you already have an os?
  4. Alredy have w7 ultimate so don't need to spend money on that. Altough i might buy water cooling if the default fan isnt good enough.
  5. If you plan to over clock then a new better cpu fan is recommended. I doubt the one that comes with it would work very well (it is designed to handle the cpu under normal running not oced)
  6. Yeah im aware of that, but with this computer i doubt it would need overclocking at all.
  7. If you want, you can go down to the Intel i5 2500K:

    It is similar to the i7 only with a 100Mhz lower stock clock and cannot hyperthread. Gaming performance difference btwn the i5 and the i7 is negligible so it's better to save around $100 for a cheaper CPU since games don't utilize more than 2-3 cores.
