Default Build complete? Thanks for the help though.

Ok well if you read my first thread, I had posted some specs of my new build. Did some more homeowrk and rearranged some things. these were the original specs:

antec 1200 case (+2 antec tri cool 120mm fans for the optionals)

antec truepower 1000W modular power supply

intel core i7 920 2.66ghz processor (plan to overclock it)

vigor monsoon III cpu cooler (taking stock fan off and adding 2 antec tricool 120mm fans on both sides for cooling and exhaust)

evga x58 atx sli motherboard

6gb g skill ddr3 1333ghz ram (going to OC to 1600)

evga gtx 280 ssc oc'd 1gb gpu

aoc 22" widescreen 1680 x 1050 monitor

WD veloci-raptor 300gb hdd

lg 22x cd/dvd drive (x2)

scythe 5.25" bay fan controller (for opt fans and cpu cooler and temps)

....I made some changes though. first off, thank you for everyone who posted to my thread.

I changed my GPU from the gtx 280 to the evga gtx 260 216 ftw edition. Saved about $100 on that. Also, decided to be a fool for my mobo and super upgraded to the asus rampage III. Than I changed my ram from 6gb 1333 to 6gb 1600 for 10 bucks more!(both sets were g. skill). I also switched to samsung drives instead of LG. Everything else remained the same. these are my new specs and asking more people for their input. feel free to addon. thank you

My System Specs


Ahhh good. Samsung is much much nicer. I have one thats an External (do everything cept' make coffee lol) type. Wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Looks good!
