Hello, I've finalized my parts and just need a final review before I place the order in the next few days. Just need another set of eyes to make sure I don't have a catastrophic mistake.

Thanks

That is a very nice build. There's three suggestions I'd make:

1. You might want to take a look at the 7950 for your video card, something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...'

2. The extra case fan is kind of a waste - the Antec 1100 includes plenty of fans to start with. Unless you're attaching it to the Hyper 212 then I'll make an exception.

3. I'd say cut the SSD in half to a 128GB and invest the difference in purchasing a secondary storage solution. Go with this setup:

- 128GB Crucial M4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

With this setup it will still be blazing fast and you'll get far more storage out of it - the 240GB will fill up quickly and then you'll regret not having the extra space.

The other thing I"m not sure about that Enermax PSU - try a Seasonic instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That list should have a 1TB Seagate Baracuda 7200 RPM drive on there. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Sorry if it wasn't, so would I still need to alter the storage makeup I had?


I think a 240GB SSD is kind of overkill - if you're running a 1TB you should get the 128GB model and then run everything else (games, Steam, etc) off the secondary - you won't really notice any performance drop

no i think a 240GB SSD is nice IMHO, well i run lots of stuff on my new system and lots of games too which kills loading time but hey, he can afford it so it's all good

I still don't think so - if I had that kind of budget it would not be going into the storage - it would be going into the video card. To me - after the PSU - the GPU is *THE* most important part of any build and you want the best one that your budget allows - the storage solution, to me, is usually one of the last things that you should pour money into. You can always add or remove drives later - that is not a big deal.
