  1. Hi :)

    Operating system....

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Windows 7 Home premium
  3. You can wait for the z77 chipset and the 3770k Ivy Bridge to be release in april.

    For your monitor, you should pick the VS248H-P. (More recent, about the same price, only good review)
    I just bought 3 for myself to play Eyefinity game. No dead pixel, clean image.

    For you Graphic card, I would go for a GTX 680, it's about 500$, but you will have aproximatly double the performance of the 6950, less driver issue. Trust me I have a 6970 and it have problem in skyrim because the driver are not optimized.

    With this build, i would buy a corsair h100 to cool your CPU with 2-4 noctua PWM or cougar vortex fan. Depending if you want a push/pull configuration or not.

    For the case, I would recommend the Haf X and buy Haf X fan filter for the best cooling(but it's expensive, or get the Antec P280 (Good cable management, better airflow (but you need to buy 2-4 other fan. Price is about 130$.) and you can instal the h100 inside the top of your case.

    Your Sdd OCZ have a high fail rate when I read review, I would recommend an Intel SDD or the Crucial M4
  4. How much is your build in total?
  5. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  6. Every thing is well and good but change the ocz ssd to crucial and kingwin psu to something like xfx or seasonic or corsair or ocz
