So my first ever forum post, just now figured out in life I need to be working on and building computers......Its like Im on crack right now....(sorry if that offends anyone) but Im hooked. Just wanted to get some back up and or suggestions on my first build that I have started on.
Intel DP67BG Extreme Series - MPN BOXDP67BGB3 mobo
Intel Core i5-3570k 3.4GHz 2nd Gen Ivy-Bridge ( will want to overclock eventually)
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 02G-P3-1568-KR ( future possibility of SLI x2 with a new PSU )
HiPro 700w PSU
Western Digital VelociRaptor 300 GB, 10k RPM,3.5" (WD3000HLFS) ( x4 RAID future)
Asus BW-12B1ST 12x Internal SATA Blu Ray BD DVD Burner Writer Drive
Asus 245h monitor 1920x1080 ( thats all I need for now )
Well thats my list so far...Most of it I have purchased already from great deals I've found on the net for the past month. All of this will be in a old Alienware 7500 tower that I picked up pretty cheap and love the way it looks before Dell got their hands on the company. I have 3 120mm fans on the case and an 80mm fan for the HDD. Im modding it a little to add 1 more 120mm or a 140mm to the bottom of the case to get more cool air in there. Im looking to put a large air cooled CPU fan for now maybe looking to liquid cool in the future when I do another build.
I mainly am looking at only using this for gaming; BF3, Mass Effect 2 and 3, Crysis 2, SWTOR, SWU2......thats what I have.
Any suggestions...how well will I be able to play these games? All replies will be helpful.
Guess next time I have to go with a peppier name for the thread....to get more comments..
After debate on dealing with the BIOS change Im gonna replace the i5 3570k Ivy B...with a i5 2500k sb.... Looks like I will have a processor for my next build
Question that I still am out looking for is how will my game choices play out....I know the GTX 560ti 2gb is not the best I can get....but will it work in ultra settings or not....until I go SLI with a matched card?
Any comment on that will be helpful....Thanks all...
