  1. The CM EVO comes with a small tube of MX-4 so you can scratch the Arctic Silver off your list. Try this build. It gets you more bang for your buck. And look for a headset that plugs straight into your sound card (analog).

    Corsair Vengeance 1300 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Analog Gaming Headset



    Nice input thank you for replying. I have been thinking about switching the mobo because i do think its pretty expensive for asthetic reasons. The case i was thinking had great airflow but i do think its a little too big.

    Wouldn't 1866 1.5v ramm speed the system up a liitle more than the 1600?
  4. by the way i am changing the headset to analog thanks

    Forget about ascetic looking mobo's. When I see a build posted on ascetics and not performance I skip those threads entirely and think to myself; "how do these people manage to register on this site?"

    You have $1,800 to get the most your money can get. In gaming that means FPS and performance without cutting quality. That's what it's all about. The guy who spent $1,500 wisely is going to get more FPS out of his build vs the guy who spent $2,000 and went for ascetics. As far as the 1600hz RAM goes, some of these boards are finicky with anything but. 1600Hz RAM is plug and play.

    With a budget of $1,800 you should end up with no less than a 240GB SSD, a GTX 670, and a quality modular psu.

    I agree. I like the mobo you selected, the reviews on it where very convincing and saves me money for the same performance. I might even have enough to go gtx 680 or like you said a nice size SSD drive.

    Skip the 680. For $100 less you can pick up a non reference cooled gtx 670 that will o/c well past a stock 680. Look for any of the Asus 670 cards or the Gigabyte 670. They are probably sold out on newegg but there is sites that still have them in stock. That's $100 you can put somewhere else.
