Building my Dream machine, insight please?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Slowly going to start building my dream machine, should have it completed in about 10 months or so.


here is what my system specs will be:


Case: Cooler Master HAF X

Motherboard: Asus Rampage III extreme

CPU: Intel Core i7 980x Extreme

GPU: XFX Hd 5970 black edition ( 2gb)

Hard Drive: Cavier Black 1TB

PSU: Silverstone ST1200

Memory: Corsair 12gb (6 x 2gb)

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64)


Also, i want to upgrade my HAFX by adding in a WC system.

But not sure how this works, im sure a quick stroll through the forums will help,

but anyones input on complexity/brands to go for would be appreciated.



hows this setup sound?




Thanks guys

That's definitely a "dream machine", but 10 months is a long time....


Better to save up your $$ for a while rather than buying it bit buy bit.


By then, the ATI 6 series will be out, Sandy Bridge.... who knows what else.

Ya a lot of things are going to change in the next 10 months.... still waiting to see if DDR4 will be out by then besides all the other stuff fmc mentioned.

well of course there are going to be bigger and better things, its just the way the industry is.


and thats what i mean by slowly, saving up my money and buying all the parts at one time,

so if there is an upgrade available for one the parts, i might purchase it,

but i feel the build i have chosen will have longevity, and will not all of a sudden become obsolete because of a new gpu or other component.

Great points though guys,


and thanks for the input!!


i still dont have much time to cruise the forums,

anyone got any info on water cooling?
