Hi DarkBytePosted Image


Please post back the info and one of these Posted Image will get back to you.


What will be the main use for the compute?
General? office?
Gaming?
Enthusiast, video/photo?
Professional workstation?

Apart from the main components will you be bringing anything to the new build, IE. monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers?
Do you have a retail OS, (not OEM)?
In which country will you be doing your purchasing?

I would say, no. The selected SB 2600K will run the rig superbly. Although Ivy Bridge is due out soon, there might be delays, it may have unforeseen bugs, it will probable be expensive to start off with. Ivy Bridge is a future upgrade should you feel you need it.

At the moment the build is geared towards gaming.

It can be tweaked for Photo/video.

What programs will you be using for Photo/Video?

Hi.

It is important that you reply to this question.

What programs will you be using for Photo/Video?




The suggested GPU is not supported in some Photo/Video software so may need to be swapped for one with CUDA.

Hi.
On my way to bed, 1.00 AM, so a quick post.

Have a look at this site. I set the page up to show SB 2600K CPU, note the video cards used and the HDD configuration. explore.
