Please excuse my English as it is not my first language. My friend told me to stop by here as reference. With that being said I would like to ask guidance and help from professionals and other knowledgeable folks in the forum . Any help is greatly appreciated.
This is my first time making a computer, I am still currently using a P4 system which runs new games these day sluggishly. Now I have not made a PC in the part but I have been reading about it lately and I feel motivated and partly a little scared in making one myself, instead of buying a pre-assembled off the shelf. I think this would be a good learning experience and a good way to save some money.
The only major thing I have done to a computer in the past was add Rams nothing really technical.
Below are the components that I am looking at. As far as I know they are all compatible but I might be wrong. Please check if this is fine or if I am missing anything.
Case: Antec 1200
PSU: Corsair 1000W
CPU: Intel i7 920
CPU Cooling Unit: Whatever comes with the i7 (some recommendation maybe.)
Ram: G Skill 3x 2GB DDR3 1333 (PC3 – 10666)
Mobo: EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit
Graphic Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 260 896 MB (maybe 2 if budget allows, 3 in the future.)
Hard Drive: Seagate 1 TB, 7200 RPM
DVD/CD Drive: LG 22x DVD+RW
Thermal paste: Whatever comes with the CPU Unit (Maybe other stuff if recommended.)
Think this will be good for 3 way Sli in the future (not overheating if I got 3 Sli)? I do plan to 3 Sli soon when I have more money.
I am budgeting around 1500-1600
Any suggestions and comments are appreciated. Thanks!
