Asus Rampage III Black edition MB(If I go with the 960 CPU. Love the RoG Thunderbolt LAN/Audio combo)
Asus P8Z68 Deluxe MB (If I go with the 2600 CPU)
Sapphire FleX HD6950 2gb DDR5 256 bit Graphics
16gb of G.Skill Ripjaws or Sniper DDR3 1600
Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 2tb SATA 6.0
Kinawin LZG-1000 1KW Power Supply
Sony BWU-500S BR/DVD/CD RW
Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler
Win7 64 bit Pro
Possibly a Cooler Master Storm Sniper case but may see if I can stuff it all into my old Dell XPS 710 case.
Also looking at possibly an Asus P6X58-E or an EVGA X58 motherboard instead of the rampage. But I do like that Thunderbolt with the Rampage.
I was thinking of maybe an SSD for the OS to go with the Ultrastar.
So, which CPU is better for serious gaming, the 960 or the 2600? Also, if anyone sees a compatibility issue or whatever with any of these components, please let me know. I have built my own systems before so I have some experience with that but it's been a while and I'm not totaly up on all of the new stuff. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
