Build/Parts guide

Recommended Posts

FYI, the Intel Core i7 990x can't run with dual cpu configuration....:(

only Xeon Processors that can run (rather "allowed") dual cpu config....

Because one the QPI link in i7 "Gulftown" are disabled thus dual-socket for i7 is a no-no

oh, if i'm not mistaking, only Xeon X5500 and X5600 Series that have Dual-Link QPI

hey, I am quite new to all this pc building and stuff but I feel quite confident in myself (have always been a computer geek and I am a philomath)

 

anyway on to topic, I am intending to build myself a new desktop computer and I want some advice. so far the parts build I have sett up is as follows:

 

PSU:---------------Corsair AX 850W

Motherboard:----Intel DP67BG

CPU:---------------Intel I7 2600K

GPU:---------------EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1280 MB (x2 ?)

RAM:---------------Corsair Vengeance DDR3-2000 12 GB

Storage:-----------Western Digital VelociRaptor 300 GB

Western Digital AV-GP 2TB SATA, 32 MB cache

Optical drive: ---LiteOn IHOS104-37

Cabinet:-----------NZXT Phantom

 

total pricetag, about 2500 USD

 

first thing I want to know is what you guys think about the build as written above? good? bad? waste? any components that absolutely should be changed?

it will mostly be used for gaming but also for some 3D rendering

 

next is that I am uncertain of the motherboard, I want a good motherboard with good functionality, space and connections,

I feel the DP67BG has this (from one of OCC's reviews), but is there any better motherboards out there which have the same types/amount of connections or

more and that is also easy to "manipulate" (OC and so on)

 

Lastly its the cabinet I am slightly uncertain about,the mane reasons I choose it is because of the integrated fan control, size and the look, but does any one

know how its airflow is, is it a good cabinet or is there any that are that much better?

 

 

well then hope I didn't make a fool of myself and posted in the wrong place :P

 

 

 

Thank you guys/gals for any help you may offer

Well you should have posted a new thread, and for that price you could get a lot more. Intel motherboards are usually not revommended either.
