Ye it will be a solid build, Only thing I would change is the HDD since the Mobo your looking to buy can run a SATA III (6.0gb) and that HDD you have there is a SATA II. The best way to go is get a 120GB SSD for Boot (Windows and Main Programs) and a HDD (SATA III) for games and everything else.

EDIT: Oh and if your looking to make a "show of" rig then I would pick a different case, Black interior is way nicer then grey.

Hope this helps, dRyk

Antec 1100 is a better case, have more options and better expandability for the future.

Get a lite-on dvd writer. I have a sony one and there loud, supposedly lite-on are quieter.

If this is a gaming rig, 16gb of ram is really overkill. 8gb would be better.

CPU cooler comes with thermal paste so you dont need to buy any extra.

You need 850w to SLI two 570's together so keep that in mind if you plan to go that route. Antecs not bad for a psu, but corsair and seasonic are better.

Other than that it looks great.

SATA III on a hard drive is literally a waste of money. Platters and magnetic heads can't read/write data fast enough to saturate SATA II, so spending an extra ~$50 on a drive with the same platters and more bandwidth doesn't get you anything in the real world or even in benchmarks.

SATA III will make a difference for a good SSD, and that is something to consider with a high-end gaming build.

Agreed. I think there are much better cases than the Antec 900 out there for that money. Antec hasn't really updated their cases at all in the last couple of years, and it shows.

Agreed. You'll rarely (if ever) use more than 4GB, but games are starting to use around 6GBs. Save yourself the money and stick with 8GB.


I consider trying to throw in at least a 60-64GB SSD as a boot drive. You'll really see a difference in performance in games and general usage. Stay away from OCZ; Intel 320 or Crucial M4 are the best ways to go.

I don't think you should have ever given him a chance. Trolls rarely admit when they are wrong.

Just shut up Long. You never have anything good to say. Also, before calling someone a kid, check your reflection in the mirror.

"we are all adults here or old enough at the leased" So longpastPNR you should know that what recon-uk said was the mature thing. Carrying it on like your doing puts you in the categorie of a child. I think there is enough information for him in here so lets all leave this thread be?

Lets grow up, dRyk

EDIT: To anyone who has a problem with each other just PM, this isn't our thread to take over.

Like I said, no point in reasoning with you. Trolls will remain trolls. :headbang:
I am not the one to report, but I am not going to stoop to your level, LongpastPNR.

Good job at twisting the meaning of troll into what you think.. You should get an award for YOUR narrow-mindedness. Half of the things you say barely make any sense.

OP: Follow Boiler's and sosofm's recommendations and your build is set! :)

Instead of giving you a chance to atk back, I am going to repeat this:Like I said, no point in reasoning with you. Trolls will remain trolls. :headbang:

Apparently, you also don't know the meaning of grow up and read between the line LMFAO! There is nothing intelligent about your post that reading between the lines would change. You grow up kid.
