I'm looking to build a new PC here in the next week or two and replace my old system. Looking for a pretty beast gaming rig. I'm looking for a second set of eyes / someone to help look over my list and see if all looks good, any possible conflicts, etc. I GREATLY appreciate all that help to assist making this rig the best it can be:
Case - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 ATX Full Tower: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811119225
-I really like the look of the case, and it looks like it should have VERY good air flow.
Motherboard - ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131760
-Did quite a bit of reading up and this seemed to have pretty good reviews and recommendations.
CPU - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz [LGA1155] http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819115070
-Looks like the best bang for the buck - great reviews.
CPU Cooler - Was looking at some of the Corsair Hydro liquid CPU coolers. Look good at all?
Hard Drive - Crucial 256GB SATA III SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820148443
-I've never owned a SSD hard drive. From what I read it works just like any other drive. Just pop it in and it works with no issues. Please correct me if I'm wrong in my understanding.
Video Card - ASUS ENGTX590/3DIS/3GD5 GeForce GTX 590 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814121436
-Like I said, I am a pretty big gamer, and looking for a beast card to handle everything. This card looks pretty sick, and could SLI in the future. Also I am running dual monitors now (One for gaming on a single monitor, second one has random crap up, Steam friends messaging, TV show, etc). Eventually I'd like to get a third monitor up and running.. just throwing that out there.
Memory - Corsair Vengeance 16GB [4 x 4GB] DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820233143
-Good reviews.. any other recommendations? Should I look higher than the DDR 1600? I know 16gb is overkill, but for the price it's not bad at all. Also saw some pictures of memory fan cooling units? Worth looking into?
PSU - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold Series 1200W ATX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817171055
-Needing a powerful enough PSU to handle three hard drives, possible dual 590's in the future, etc.
Sound card - Feel free to provide any recommendations
Bluray drive - Will pull my Bluray burner from my current tower.
