I've bought all but the CPU and the GFXcard (damn 680s are gone after 5 minutes of being restocked!) and I
was wondering about everyone's opinions.
This will be my first Personal build (and I've tried to go with quality parts...this is where your opinions kick in), but I've setup quite a few pc's for friends, so I don't consider myself a total
novice...but there's always more to learn.
ASUS Maximus V Gene z77
NZXT Phantom 410
I love this case and will hate you for mocking it
Main Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Boot Drive:OCZ Agility 3 (Almost $1 per 1GB!)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X
Yes its 16gb, but I will be running a RAMDisk so please don't get mad
Should have enough amps for SLi'd 680s
CM Hyper 212
I know I probably coulda done better here, sorry..but everything was pushing my budget! Besides...
I hear its quite good
I will be dropping in the Ivy Bridge i5 3570k into a putting a slight overclock (just 4.0 or 4.2..I know about the
heat issues reported already so maybe someday I'll go with a custom water loop, but atm No thanks).
I will also be doing an SLI setup when I need to, but I don't see this for at least another year or so..the 680
seems to be quite a nice card and I'd rather not go bankrupt.
I have also purchased extra fans for the case and a keyboard (old stock HP is ew now) but these are irrelevant.
