I've been saving up for this system for a long time now, as my old system is 5 years old and low-profile, finally I'm ready to buy it. However before doing so I'd like to know your opinions on my build(list?).
CPU: i5 3570k | This is the preferred core for a gaming system right?
PSU: XFX 850W XXX Edition 80+ Silver | Cheaper than corsair and seasonic, and should be just as good.(?) Reason for the high wattage is, if I was gonna xfire in the future I would be able to, without having to replace my power supply.
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Formula | To my knowledge, a great mobo. I also like the onboard audio.
GPU: Sapphire Vapor-X 2 | This is a great graphics card right? Or should i get a nvidia?
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB | Just a hard drive
SSD: I'm not sure, recommendations please
Monitor: BenQ XL240T 24"
Case: Aerocool Strike-X ST Devil Red Edition | I like the design, the size and the features of this case.
Bluray: Asus BW-12B1ST
Watercooling: Corsair H100 | I am not exactly sure about this yet.. Any other suggestions
would be appreciated.
