Is it good so far and will everything work properly together? Will Case fit all that stuff without any problem?

Should I change anything like motherboard... or anything

what are you using this build for? if its gaming, it can be done for 1500. if its work, it can be done for around 1850, and if its for extreme amounts of rendering and work, it can be done for 2500

please state

-if you are overclocking
-if you are going to run multiple video cards

ill build you something better

Using it for games but wanting to play it in highest settings without any problem.
Don't know what overclocking is so probably not doing that
I'm only running 1 GTX 690.

Also I want to use that case... money is not really a problem, whats wrong with my stuff.

a 690 is overkill.

what is a build without overclocking? why are you spending so much and not overclocking?

at this rate, all you need to spend is 1500 to achieve the same gaming performance that you can actually see

just saying, you can get bored of the phantom's design real fast

this is all you need. you can pretty much play everything at max. AA in metro 2033 will not be maxed with both a 690 or a 670, therefore dont try. same goes for the witcher 2

a 670 performs the same as the 690 if you are using a 60hz monitor

Alright looks good man thanks, just one question... if I was to get what I posted, will it all work well together and fit in case? Def going with your suggestion, but just wanted to know.

yes it will go together fine. do you need a good keyboard and monitor suggestion?
December 3, 2012 7:04:46 PM

No I already have keyboard and monitor thanks, also what I don't understand is how the 670 will work the same has a 690?

Also on my config, the motherboard i picked.. would it have worked with everything else I picked..?
December 3, 2012 7:59:18 PM

This is actually not for me but for a friend and he said he doesn't want to change anything... that he wants the "best". Also he wants to know if there is a better motherboard to use.

if you have a 60hz monitor, the extra frames from the 690 would = nothing at all since the monitor cannot display more frames per second.

if you want the best video card that i would get, id get this. but keep in mind that this only performs 2-5 fps more than the 670 in almost all situations. i would never get it for how much it costs just to get 5fps but ill put out the option anyways

well tell him that getting the best doesnt mean getting more performance

there are better motherboards but i doubt he can even use the features, therefore a better motherboard is wasted

and no the board i picked will not work with the CPU you picked. or vise versa

and if he is a true gamer, he must have a good mechanical keyboard and a sound card. ask him if he wants these extras

4way SLI, overclocking (90% why people would get this board),onboard software features,video card hotwiring, onboard power buttons, and just about everything that makes this board unique

i would NEVER get this board unless you are going for a world record with LN2 benching or if you are going for a full out watercooled system with all heat generating components on the motherboard watercooled for overclocking

and another thing, does he even have a usb3 drive?
December 3, 2012 8:50:26 PM

He said he wont need any of that stuff and he does have a usb3 drive
December 3, 2012 8:52:47 PM

He wants to know for the ram , he wants the Corsair Vengeance 16gb but should he the 4x 4gb or different one?

and will he have enough space to download about 150 games with his config
a b V Motherboard
December 3, 2012 8:55:33 PM

good because if he didnt, it would make no sense of getting a board with a ton of usb3

8gb is enough for gaming. corsair ram is no better than any other ram.

the one that says so-dimms are for laptops

otherwise they are basically the same as any other ram. therefore, no point of sticking to corsair when other things that are the same are cheaper
December 3, 2012 9:21:44 PM

Is there a different motherboard you recommend for his config?
a b V Motherboard
December 3, 2012 9:25:20 PM

yes. this is for my config that i am recommending, the one you have is a waste of cash

you dont get asus level software included with the board but you do get a heck of a lot more IO options.
December 3, 2012 9:32:21 PM

Also with fans, how many does he need to buy?
a b V Motherboard
December 3, 2012 9:37:26 PM

none really. the case has 3 fans which are pretty decent

just change the top 140mm fan to be mounted in the rear for exhaust

and id put the 120mm on the side for intake. you want positive pressure to prevent dust
