***Note*** If you can think of something comparable for cheaper on the AMD side, I wouldnt mind the input. I know the radeon GPU's seem to be cheaper, but I have always been an intel/nVidia guy.

Hi Gezuss, Posted Image

OS. Good.


Case, Good choice, would install 1 top fan as part of the build.

Mobo, Good.

CPU. If this is a workstation, Video editing, etc, is good. If this is a gaming rig I would go with a SB 2500K and put the saving elsewhere in the build.

RAM. Consider changing to faster RAM DDR3 1600 CL 7, natively supported on your board.

HDD, good.

PSU, Good, extra long cables are a bonus.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115072 This CPU?

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231455 And how is this for the RAM? its 1866 instead of 1600. Figure that would make it even better.








I give you a genuine Soldiers thanks for the input and help :)

Yes. I see out of stock, but will come back in very quickly

ONLY if you are prepared to over-clock the RAM, otherwise it runs at the Mobo default 1600.

I recommend this RAM. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231431
