This is my next computer build, and I would like to know your opinions on everything.

Let me know what you think.

This is for gaming. Personally, I have the money and I believe that if there is anything worth doing, it's worth doing it like a man. Big. Strong. And powerful.

And that's what I've got. Though I'm not exactly sure if everything flows together, I've done my homework and just thought that input would be appreciated.


Edit: I just swapped out my usless 1866 OC 16gb ram for some super fast Case 7 8gb ram.

I don't go with socket 2011 because of the cost of the motherboards; the cpus are reasonable, but the boards haven't come down in price. I would need to know what you use your system for; gamers my not benefit from such an expensive board.

Here's my recommendations:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (5 year warranty; I've had good experience with antec; even getting parts shipped free just with an email request); 4 rails at 40w apiece, plenty of power for sli.

The msi board you selected may work fine, but I'm always a fan of saving money. My bad for not checking prices first; the board prices are reasonable now.

Hmmm, I too am a fan of Antec but I do want to have enough power in the event I ever wanted to do a crossfire.

The motherboard I'll look into. The one I have currently, well I'll be honest I just think it looks amazing. And that's just about the basis of my wants. >.<''

So you've given me something to think about. 200$ worth XD

As a gamer you definitely won't be hitting 8GB usage of RAM. You can drop down to 8GB and still get the same performance from your build, not to mention shaving off a nice bit of money.

That's about it, really.

I went ahead and thought about it, then I decided that 16gb of ram is a huge amount of ram. And rather an insane case of overkill. I just figured that they weren't too expensive, but a waste in many ways.
