I just sold my previous gaming desktop for 750. This time I will not make the same mistakes and will only buy slickdeals - Help me out by bookmarking this thread! And every time you see a good and slick part just post it here! I'm usually on SD 18hrs a day anyways hah! O yeah and this is going to be an Intel system, no AMD!
Budget: 750 + some more!
So let's do this!
1. Purpose of computer: Gaming, Photoshop, HD Movies, eyeFinity or Nvidia Surround with 3 monitor setup. Overclock to 5.0Ghz Stable. 2. Budget: $750+(can push a little more 3. List which parts you have and/or which parts you are considering:
a. CPU: i7 2600k CPU 5.0Ghz Overclocked) b. Mobo: Any (Need to be able to overclock i7 2600k to 5.0Ghz) c. GPU: eyeFinity or Nvidia Surround d. Hard drive: Already bought OCZ Vertex LE 100GB ($51 shipped!) but can use another SSD (Might put the LE in my M11X) - Need 2-4TB of Space (Saving movies, torrents etc.) e. Ram: 16Gig or even 32Gig (some will be used for Ramdisk) 1600Mhz at least. (Need to be able to overclock i7 2600k to 5.0Ghz) f. PSU: Need to be able to support all components and then some. Must not bottleneck! g. Case: Roomy, good airflow h: Optic (CD/DVD/Blu-ray): Doesn't matter. Pref blu-ray. i. Monitor (size&resolution): Already picked up 3 x 22" Dell LCDs ($99 each!)
4. Overclocking: (Need to be able to overclock i7 2600k to 5.0Ghz) 5. When will you build it: As soon as I get all the parts. Slick deals is more important than ETA to build 6. Misc: CPU Cooler (Some kind of water cooling like the Corsair H50?)
Remember! Gotta be slick! Thanks guys!
