Would the following specs qualify for a decent build?
i5 3570k 3.4Ghz LGA 1155 Processor
AsRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance Series 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3-1600
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 7,200RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Samsung 830 Series 128GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" SSD
PNY XLR8 Liquid Cooled GeForce GTX 580 1536MB GDDR5 PCI-Express 2.0
Samsung 22x DVD+RW Burner with Dual Layer Support
Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W
Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Windows 7 Ultimate 64x Bit
Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid Tower ATX Computer Case
It's my first build.
Would you have built something like this?
If not, what would you have changed?
My room during the summer has a green-house effect to it hence the liquid coolings i decided to go for instead of a higher end graphic card, etc. Air condition people just can't seem to fix the piping issue that gives me a less than 50% of the A/C ...
i was planning on upgrading to an i7 later on .. 16gb is just overkill? i was looking at videos on youtube and most were going for the 8gb.. so i guess..
most were purchased through micro center which i can exchange easily as its only few blocks away.
the ram... was purchased off newegg.
ill just save the other 2 sticks since its 4x4gb and use them some other time.
so get the 2500k and z68? but doesnt the 2500k not have a PCI3.0 thing? also, the i5 3570k and Z77 were in a bundle so the i5 was 189.99 and the Z77 was 89.99
so the 800watt was unnecessary? 500watt should be fine for that liquid cooled gtx 580?
i just got the 580 cuz it was liquid cooled.. instead of a 670 or 680. micro center has 680s.
i was planning on doing a SLI later on like next year when i make more money again...
would it be just better to do 500w for a year until i decide to SLI and just purchase a new PSU?
dont kno much about PSUs.. if its 800w, and my build doesnt need that much, does it still suck up all that electricity from my wall?
so dont do CPU liquid cooling? just go for the 30 dollar cheaper air cooler?
