New PC build.

Recommended Posts

I recently built a new PC. Got rid of my 12-core MacPro and used the money for that overpriced rig to fund my new PC. I will list as much info as I can. Let me know if I will have compatabilty problems with these components. Also are there any sugegtions on things I should check on the MB and drivers? Thank you.

 

ASUS P9X79 DELUXE
Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2 1 LGA 2011 Processor
32 gig ram
PNY XLR8 Enthusiast Edition GeForce GTX 680 x 2 SLI
Thermalake Toughpower Grand 1200W

Need help on where to start and  also have a ton of OC questions. Just want too make sure the rig is good to go first. Thanks again.

Lober, please roll all of your questions into a single post.  Starting multiple threads asking similar questions will only delay the help you'll be able to find here.

 

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure the things you have suggested should be compatible - you've got a nice build there.

 

I'm not sure you'll need a 1200W PSU there though - maybe a decent 6-700W PSU at most.

 

Finally, although it doesn't relate to the question, if you look at the bottom right hand corner of your post, and click on the 'Edit' button, you should be able to edit your first post, instead of adding another one.

a current generation 12 core macpro would crush your i7 like a fat kid breaking into a cookie jar but you couldnt play any video games w

32GB is stupid unless you actually plan to use it

if you have extra money to burn, waste it on nicer SSDs or a new mouse or something

Tell us what the main use of the computer will be? I am guessing gaming since you decided to sell off a mac for it?

If it is for gaming and entertainment, then Id lower the amount of ram to 8-16GB, and get a 750W or 850W power supply, from reputable brands.

With the extra funds and a bit more, maybe look into multi monitor setups...sound system, new keyboard/mouse as suggested by potatochobit, and you didn't mention any hard drives in that system either. High capacity SSDs will drive up costs fast.
