Hi there. It's been many years and I'm now scoping parts for a new one.
I wanted to bounce the configuration off you guys. Any and all input is appreciated.
In the interest of brevity, here's what I've got so far:
Corsair Obsidian 650D
ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155
Intel Core i7-3770 LGA 1155
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+ w/Backplate
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
OCZ Vector 128G
WD VelociRaptor WD3000HLHX 300GB 10K-RPM
ASUS DVD Burner DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit -OEM
While I picked all the parts in my last two rigs, this will be the first assembly I've attempted myself. Some primary concerns for me (at this point) are ease of installation, component compatibility, making sure the PSU is enough or too much, and the lack of a sound card.
My rigs essential function will be gaming. I do not intend to overclock or use multiple GPUs.
I will answer any questions posed, but if I prattle on I'll surely end up being redundant and irritating. Many thanks in advance.
