I went from Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler to the CM because of price

Iffy about PSU and MOBO but looked like a deal; modular is a priority.

I am big on true 5.1 surround and don't know what to expect from this MOBO..




I will be using this for gaming on 1 1920*1080 display.

I'm wanting a card that's gonna give me the highest level of performance over time.

I have had the radeon 6950 2gb, Galaxy GTX 680 2GB, and a Vapor X 7970 NOT Ghz edition.

The GTX 680 smoked it but we have SUPERCLOCKED and GHZ Editions now so I dont really know.

and coil whine annoys the living hell out of me..

Thanks everyone!

GTX 670!

This is because you are only using one monitor @1080P. Even cards like the GTX 570 can play almost all games on high-ultra settings, and that's a card that is well behind the speed of the 670. With the saved money you can buy a dedicated soundcard!

Very low end board! Get at least the Z77 Extreme 4.

What power supply?

For either of those cards you only need a 500W PSU, 650W would be ideal.

I ordered the following build. Opinions still welcome.

PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i5 3570k
EVGA Superclocked signature 2 GTX 680 2gb (This overall looks to be the current fastest card out of the box to me)
Rosewill WHITE THOR case
MSI Z77A-GD55
Kingston HyperX 2x4GB 1600 DDR3

I got all of that above shipped for $1,070

I already have DVD Drive and Crucial M4 256GB SSD

I want some opinions on that card and if it is voltage locked since it is factory OC

Thanks! I'll post pics when I build. I got 2 day shipping and ordered just now so Monday night maybe?
