1000$ 3d modeling/gaming build, compatibility check Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Last response: December 7, 2012 11:22 PM in Systems Share tenebrissicarius December 4, 2012 3:28:33 PM Hello everyone, I'm new to this and would like to build a PC for school/gaming. I think I have a fairly solid list of parts, with room for more complicated things down the road (SLI, multiple hard drives/raid/ overclocking) I am going to start ordering the parts within the next few days, but before I do, I would like to double check that all the parts are compatible. Probably the biggest thing I am unsure about is the power supply. Will it fit my Mobo? Approximate Purchase Date: within the next few days, Budget Range: Max is about $1500 with monitor and OS. System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3d modeling, gaming, photo/video editing, . Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca, Location: Canada Overclocking: Yes, will be new to it. SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, want to have that option. Your Monitor Resolution: What ever works best with the GPU Additional Comments: Games: WoW, Dishonored, battlefield 3, Skyrim, Software: I will be using autocad/ solidworks, C++, photoshop Here is what I have found: CPU: i5 3570K: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
