Don't get the Antec 900 - go with a Corsair Carbide 500R instead. If you can't get that then the Antec 1100 would be ideal.

The Antec 900 is an older case that has decent airflow, but atrocious cable management.

The Antec 1100 is newer and has much better cable management, while still maintaining airflow. The Carbide 500r has the best cable management and airflow out of all 3 of the cases, so grab it if you can.

First off buying parts with "pretty boxes" is never the way to go - you'll just be throwing those away. I don't like Intel SSDs because of the Sandforce controller - I never recommend those on any build. If you want an SSD this is one of the best on the market: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I don't think I would get either RAM - Kingston Hyper X is good but it's not worth the premiums - and G.Skill is good but the tall heat sinks are a nuisance. Try something like this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yeah but for way less the Radeon 7850 not only beats it, it uses 1/2 the power.

I chose 570 cos Adobe doesn't support ATI cards
and 570 is the starting point for GPU render

Yeah and I don't like it - I've had so many problems with Windows Update not updating that it drives me crazy - last time I had to use system restore and there no restore points to go back to. I'm planning on ditching it for an M4 in the next couple months. I really wanted a Vertex 4 but after reading about today's firmware update I'm not so sure now.

Really? This is the first I've heard about this - I can't imagine their software would be GPU specific. Most aren't.

Would anyone suggest a cooling device? Is a cooler master 212 evo good?

The EVO is plenty for a decent overclock to 4-4.4 GHz. The Noctuna NH-D14 is about $50 more and allows for an overclock up to around 4.8-5 GHz.

when I choose RAM, what should I care for?

Like what are the differences between these 2?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Should I get 8GB x2 or 4GB x 4?

What about "Timing"


2 x 8GB will allow for more expansion, 4 x 4GB will take up all your slots.

If you can get the 500R - definitely. Better air flow, more fans, more mounts for extra fans, amazing cable management.

The Gigabyte UD5H has the best feature set out of all of those - that's what I would go with personally.

You can get a GTX 480 at $200 with free game..


Why would you get a 480 when it's a massive power hog compared to the 6950 and 7850?

If you're storing anything critical on it - no. And that's mainly due to the fact that it's a Sandforce drive. Go with something else - a Crucial M4 or Plextor PX-M3 will be a far better choice than that.

Yep. Also, you can remove 3 hard drive bays on the Corsair 500r allowing for better airflow and to fit a gpu up to 17.7 inches long. Most 570's are around 9 inches in length.

I might as well add, that I highly recommend this case for the price. It has a lot of room for cable management.
