So i've forked out the cash for my new gaming rig and i can't wait to peice it together and overclock it all.
So here are the components:
CPU: i5 3570k 3.4ghz (Aiming to overclock to 4.7ghz)
CPU COOLER: Corsair H100
GPU: MSI LIGHTNING GTX680 (Aiming for 1350/7000 OC)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance CLR8 2x4GB 1600mhz DDR3
MOBO: Asus Z77 Sabertooth
SSD: 128GB Samsung 830
HDD: 1TB Western Digital Black
PSU: 850W Corsair 850W Modulated 80+ Bronze Rated
CASE: Aerocool X-Predator White Edition
Extra Fan: BitFenix Spectre 200mm Black Tinted White LED Fan (For case window)
Monitor: Achieva ShiMian QH270-IPSBS White 27inch Monitor (2560x1440p)
Mouse: Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse White
Keyboard: Logitech G105 Call of Duty Edition (Until i find a white keyboard to match my rig)
This will be my gaming rig for Guild Wars 2 primarily.
Looking forward to building it, it's been over 5 years since i built my last pc.
To be honest i had no idea what i was doing when i build my last one....so this one
alot of research went into it before i hit the purchase button on each item.
*you are aiming kinda high for the GPU overclock, i have 4 GTX 680s overclocked to 1.3/7.128 but they are watercooled with dual 560mm rads.... i am not sure if i would attempt to overclock a air cooled card that far...
*the H100 is noisy so be prepared.
*for roughly the same price you could have purchased a Vertex 4 which performs a bit better than the Samsung 830
*I am not sure why you bought a Caviar black HDD for storage but well... you just did it
Hehe thanks guys,
Yeah i changed a few things.
The monitor should be sweet for mmo's and my video card cost me $650 which is pricier but worth it hopefully as i have seen a few of stable 1400/7300 OC's on air. People have cracked 1500 with the msi lightning mwhaha, if it's not good enough for me i'll just send it back and get a gtx690.
I didnt go i7 because i don't render. I'll have photos and everything up in the gallery hopefully by the 30th. :3 Can't wait. *Excitement*
Oh and AUS prices differ to newegg prices haha so i think i did ok Atleast it will last a few years. <3
Probably upgrading to something along the lines of this:
CPU: i7 New Chipset (5th gen)
CPU COOLER: Custom WC loop
GPU: GTX78ti x 2 or wait for 8xx series...
RAM: DDR4 ram
MOBO: New x99 mobo or similiar to suit 5th gen processor
SSD: 512gb ssd
HDD: 4TB sata
PSU: 1000w psu
CASE: thermaltake v70 case
Fans: 6 x corsair sp120 fans in push/pull config on 360mm radiator
pump: Pump/reservoir in one
Monitor: New asus rog 2560x1440p 144hz 27" monitor...
Looking forward to build. Will probably set aside 5k to get it all and maximise aesthetics...
If I had that kind of money 5k to blow your getting mental now. Haha
I been thinking of finding a mediocre Z77 board and overclocking my 3470 up to 4.0GHz and possibly a GPU upgrade or find a nice used 7850 to Crossfire maybe. Those would be a nice budget friendly performance bump.
