I'm planning on building my first custom computer. After a fair bit of research I've got a pretty good idea about all the parts i want in it. My only concern is compatibility issues. If anyone has any experience with theese components that would be greatly appreciated. Comments and suggestion about the components are very welcome even if you have to experience with the NZXT Phantom case.
Being new to this my components list is also up for debate, if you see anything i should change, please let me know
CPU - Intel Core i7-3930k
Motherboard - ASUS Rampage IV extreme, socket 2011
GPU - EVGA Geforce GTX 680 "superclocked"
RAM - Crucial DDR3 BallistiX Tactical 1866Mhz 16GB(4x4GB)CL7 (Unable to find Newegg link, price cap 100$)
SSD - OCZ SSD Agility 3 Series 2.5" 120GB (525/500 r/w)
HDD - Seagate Barracuda® 1TB (SATA 3, 6Gb/s, 64Mb cache, 7200rpm, 3,5")
PSU - None yet
Optical drive - Lite-On Blu-Ray Writer iHBS112 (No link, preferably under 100$)
OS - Window home premium
CPU cooler - Intel® High Performance Liquid Cooling (no link, price ranges from 75-100$)
Case - NZXT Phantom Big Tower Black
After doing some research i haven't had any indications it won't all fit together nicely in the Phantom case, but then again this will be an expensive computer and i don't want to sit there with parts that won't fit together.
The parts i'm not going to change on this list is the CPU, GPU and case.
When it comes to PSU i don't know how big it needs to be, i put 1000w there just to be sure.
I'm already stretching the budget with these parts, so any new parts should be in the same price range.
Also, if it's not clear from the parts list, this will be a gaming rig.
Monitor, keyboard, mouse and headset is already purchased.
In advance, thank you for your help and input
