This is my first post in this community so I would like to say a big HI and a thank you for the helpful posts that helped me in my researches, especially the pinned how to build your own computer post It made me feel much more relaxed about this whole endeavor.
So, before I go ahead and buy everything I would really appreciate if you guys could drop some comments and advice about the build that i am going for, whether there is anything incompatible or unworkable, or anything that needs fixing.
So here it goes:
Cooler Master Centurion 5
Asus Rampage III Formula
Intel i7 960 "Bloomfield"
Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600 mhz
Corsair Dominator 8 GB 1866 mhz
I am still debating between 1600 vs 1866 mhz ram speeds, and whether 16gb is too much for my build.
nVidia GTX 560 TI
Intel 510 series 120 GB Solid State Drive
Thermaltake ToughPower 750W
Same brand but 675W, I still am not sure... Please advise!!!!!!!
Asus 12x bd-rom
While I have never built a computer myself, I have seen friends do it a long time ago in high school, when I was a hardcore gamer. And I still am a gamer haha, but rather than spending $5000 on a high end system, I want to build one myself which seems to be a lot cheaper.
