My Ivy Bridge Build Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: May 17, 2012 6:59 AM in Systems Share Nate369 May 17, 2012 6:37:03 AM My Rig is about 5 years old and I have an itch to build a new one. So I am looking at building an Ivy Bridge Rig. This is what I am looking at so far, let me know what you think CPU: i5-3570K CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 *was looking into the Extreme9, but I talked to the Sales rep and I am not sure it is worth the 350 price tag he said it would have. GPU: EVGA GTX670 RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 1866Mhz SSD: 2x Crucial M4 128GB (picked up for 87.99 each at Staples) HDD: 2X Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM (From my last build) Power Supply: Not sure Case: CoolerMaster HAF X Any suggestions would be well received. The only thing in set is the i5-3570 and the SSDs. I dont really have a budget, but I would like to keep it under or around 2000 More about : ivy bridge build azeem40 May 17, 2012 6:38:51 AM I would have just gotten one 128GB SSD as they are fast enough without RAID. Nate369 May 17, 2012 6:56:36 AM 800W.http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/message.php?config=to... My Power Supply from my old build is a Odin GT 800W. Would that be fine for current builds? Or should I look into getting another?

And I think Odin is/was made by Gigabyte. azeem40 May 17, 2012 6:59:04 AM I guess it would be fine to keep it then. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
