New gaming build
I am putting together a gaming build for a friend.
His budget is around 1k-1.5k.
Pretty straight forward except I wasnt sure of the ssd for the z68.
well here we go:
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Z68 LGA1155 ATX 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2 PCI B3 Motherboard: $208.62
Intel Core i5 2500K: $209.99
G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws: $29.99
Corsair TX650 V2 650W ATX: $79.99
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB: $79.99
Kingston SSDNow V100 Series 64GB 2.5IN SSD SATA Solid State Disk Flash Drive: $79.99
XFX Radeon HD 6950 800MHZ 2GB 5.0GHZ DDR5 2XDVI HDMI 2x Mini DisplayPort Fansink PCI $274.99 - $30 MIR
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus $29.98
Coolermaster CM 690 II Basic $84.99
minus some price match here and there for about -$30
tell me what you think! much appreciated!
looks good. go 2tb green for storage instead.
and the haf 912
I am getting the 690II for 65$
explain the advantage over the 690II please.
and for the storage I heard the caching performance is also capped by the performance of the HDD itself.
better built? at least seems more solid to me.
ok on the hdd.
I will stick with the 690II
well I think the cm 690II has better finish and can match all of the things haf can offer... and it's only 6 dollars more to fork out in my case.
not to mention haf looks like an abomination.
kinda bummed out that we missed the Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3 at 139.99...
it would've been perfect.
post some piccies of the buils will ya? :)
can anyone recommend me some fans for the case as well as the cpu cooler on push pull?
Noctua 1300 or sytche 1900 (which RPM you prefer) for the cpu, Enermax makes very nice case fans.
