Hey guys i am looking to build a gaming rigs for me. I am on a $1500 budget and willing to go to $2000. I'm only buying parts from newegg. I Need acessories. This is what i have so far

Mine:

i7 2500k

Coolermaster 212 Newegg Combo $251

 

MSI GD65

G Skill 8GB Ram Newegg Combo $250 + $10 Rebate

 

Corsair HX850

Samsung Spinpoint F3 Newegg Combo $200 + $20 Rebate

 

HAF 912 $60 + $10 rebate

 

HIS 6950 : $275 + $20 Rebate

 

Razer Death Adder, Lycosa, Ferox, Golitus = $185

 

I Will be Playing Crysis 2, Shogun 2, Just Cause 2, Metro 2033, And other Graphic Intensive Games on my Samsung P2770HD. Later I Will Get An Eyefinity Set up but when i move and have space. I will flash My 6950 to a 6970.(Crossfire??) I Want to play at 720p. ( This is my first time getting into pc gaming because PS3 and Xbox are SOOOO Behind in Graphics) I Would like to record gameplay with my Hauppauge HD PVR or sell it and Get Blackmagic Intensity Pro. I would like to fit an ssd if possible too that has good write and read speeds. I Want To Put a Soundcard In But its Not Nessicary But some recommendations for the future i will appreciate it. thanks i just wanted to add as much details so i can get the help.

You should just copy my system in my signature. LOL. But here's a variation using some of the parts you listed.

 

Total: $1,269.92

 

If you give me more specifics, I can add more :P

Hey OP do you live near a microcenter per change?? They sell the 2500K like $70 cheaper.

 

If not I still have some changes to make!

 

You shouldn't need better than an unlocked 6950 for 720p btw, that should WRECK any game at that resolution

CPU: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0354589 (If you have a microcenter this is proof of the great price, if not just get it on newegg)

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130573R (AMAZING value for an SLI capable P67, that OC's like a breeze)

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220484 (Use the promo code to make this the best memory kit around)

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065&cm_re=hyper_212%2b-_-35-103-065-_-Product (You wont need more cooler than this to get a 2500K to 4.5ghz easy)

SSD: The one he said lol, I don't know much about them

Storage HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145475&cm_re=2tb_hard_drive-_-22-145-475-_-Product (5yr warranty, barely more expensive than a 1.5TB)

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150530&cm_re=6950_2gb-_-14-150-530-_-Product (Unlockable, 2GB, Lifetime warranty, and cheapest after rebate)

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207007 (XFX 650W is more than you need with this setup, amazing unit and great price after rebate)

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 (CM 912 is the best retail case out IMHO)

DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827118040 (Nice Sony drive, best deal with free shipping)

Will a 6870 Also Demolish Games like Crysis 2, BBC 3, and Metro 2033 At 720p Resoulution. (I Will Upgrade This Computer VERY Frequently, Maybe Even this Summer if Bulldozer is Better Than Sandy Bridge. I Probably get Next Years High End Card.) Also Would anybody recommend a Good Soundcard. I Am Buying the Turtle Beach HPX and Sennheiser PC360. (Already Have Astros A40) or can i Use the Astro Mixamp on the PC to save some more Money.

I have to bring up this 5850 here for $140: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102932 That will probably perform equally as well as the 6870 while being MUCH cheaper

Well im getting Shogun 2 So im actually am saving really paying $130 for the 6870 because the $70 by rebate and not having to buy the game. Plus the 6870 are on par or better in most cases from benchmarks i've seen.
