My System Specs


Here are my thoughts :
RAM : is great I use the same myself!

Video card : I think you over did it a bit go something a little lower save a few bucks or go SLI/Crossfire of something a little less. I'm thinking 560 ti's myself (just got a pair and love them!). Personally I'd get some used cards and just use those (from here I think I saw some 6970's or something on here last week) and you'll get those cheaper then this.

CPU & MOBO : Should be great but really do you want to throw the extra coin or should you just stick with the 2500K?

PSU : This is where I would differ a bit as well. Get something a little stronger just for updatability purposes. 850W is enough for what your doing but what if you want to add more drives, another video card etc... Your call for sure but I'd probably do 1000W

Case : The Antec 300 has been on sale and its a great budget case (i use it for many businesses etc as its not to fancy and it gets the job done. But for what your doing I'd recommend something with better airflow

CPU COOLER : the ones above would do well I use an H50 and H70 myself on my rigs, but noctua is never a bad Cooler either :)

GL with your build!
