Hey guys
Just about to order parts for a new pc would be much appreciated if someone could checked to see that everything is compatible and that I haven't made any mistakes. Couldn't see wireless cards on pcpartpicker but I need one so it has to be able to fit on the board with two graphics cards, one of which I already own.

Hello murock :wave:

From the SSD overview;

Kits include cables, brackets, cloning software and HDD enclosure and installation video - everything needed to get started.


The aftermarket cooler, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty, Intel are clear on this, see below;

damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing;


Full article available @ http://www.intel.com...b/cs-009862.htm

Please provide the maximum budget and let us know the intended use of the build, gaming - CAD or video rendering as examples.

As phil stated previously, additional information is needed to give you guidance, however I will throw out this piece of general advice:

Always start with the best single GPU you can afford first, then use SLI/Crossfire as an upgrade path. Yes, it looks cool to have two big GPUs in your case window, but you will almost always be happier with a single card configuration, and upgrading to SLI/CF then provides a relatively cheap upgrade solution once the price of the 2nd card has dropped significantly over time.

So in this case you would be better of going with a HD 7950, or even a HD 7970 if it's in your budget. You'll get better performance and an option to CF in the future.
