MoBo: Gigabyte G1-SNIPER-M3 (if i get the 1155 CPU) $199
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 (if i get the 2011 CPU) $219
SSD: SanDisk Extreme SSD 120G $99
CASE: CoolerMaster HAF X $189
CPU Cooling: Noctua NH-D14 $86
RAM: Looking for 16 Gigs of ram with the higest frequency available that will fit with the CPU fan mentioned prior (price range around 175 i guess)
Thats the parts im looking at atm. Here are some options related to each part i want:
Graphics Card: Nvidia or ATI? or would u guys recommend a diff card that what i mentioned?
CPU: Im pretty clueless about CPUs, just tell me which is the best that i listed
MoBo: the ones i selected say they support for DDR3 2400(OC)/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules. (does this mean if i get a ramn that says it has 2133, it will work??
SSD: im open to any suggestions as i dont know what brand is best etc
Case: the only question i have is this case or antec twelve hundred instead?
CPU Cooling: i really want this, but let me know if u know better for the price
RAM: id prefer the best setup for OC, which i assume is 2X 8 gig sticks, but let me know what u think is the best option.
To sum up, im pretty unsure about alot of things, and im open to suggestions, let me know what you guys think.
The GTX 670 would also be my recommendation, I would get the cheaper one since it's factory overclocked.
The HAF X is a really nice case, but it's a little expensive form my tastes (You can get nice cases for under $100). But if you're set on it, I'm not going to tell you it's a bad idea.
As far as SSD's go, the Sandisk is a good, 2nd gen sandforce based SSD that gets good reviews on newegg. OCZ makes good SSD's (vertex 3/4), but that one is fine.
For your CPU cooler, I personally would go for something a little cheaper (how much are you planning on overclocking this thing?), I'm a big fan of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (about $34). I have the 212+ (predecessor to the Evo) and it works really well.
I don't think it would make too much of a difference whether you get 2 8GB DIMM's or 4 4GB DIMMS, unless you decide to go LGA 2011, which supports quad channel memory. Then you'd want to get 4 DIMM's.
