Hi guys, thanks for all the help, especially from the guys who pointed me to local Singapore suppliers for parts!
Here's my final build, would love your thoughts and any warnings on compatability. Particularly worried about whether this will hook up to my existing Apple Cinema Display 24" (http://www.everymac.com/monitors/apple/studio_cinema/sp...) which I already have so I don't have to go shopping for a monitor.
Also, if I decide to add a wireless card to this rig does anyone have any recommendations?
If I do need cooling (not planning on doing much if any overclocking for the short term), what would you recommend I get for it? Keep in mind this is my first build so no fancy modding please! I'm planning to use the NZXT Phantom 410.
Thanks guys! I will add in the 212 Cooler as recommended.
I'm buying in Singapore so I will not be planning on going for the newegg deals, however if I check Why_Me's recommendation with local prices, dropping to the ASRock Extreme 3 (instead of 4) saves me $28 - worth it? Besides the USB 3.0 difference, are there any performance implications?
Also, according to partpicker my wattage will be around 500 with a second card, so I thought 620 would be sufficient? Or are you thinking I would go triple SLI further down the line?
Finally - what wireless card would go with this rig?
Assuming that the MSI card will be able to output in DisplayPort format so I can get a miniDisplayPort adaptor and plug that sucker in to my Apple Cinema Display - is that so or am I fooling myself?
