Pulling the trigger here shortly! Im excited. Any comments or suggestions appreciated as always
Case: Coolermaster HAF XM
CPU: Ivy i5 3570k
Cooling: Asetek 570LX - should be in from Stan this or next week. Going to put everything together/install windows/etc on stock intel air cooler, and install the 570LX/overclock after it arrives and is water tested.
Going to put 4 Cougar fans on it push/pull
Mobo: Asus P8V77-Deluxe
Memory: G Skill Ripjaw Z Series 4 x 4GB DDR3 2133
16GB Ram RAWR rofl
GPU: XFX-FX-797A-TNBC-Radeon HD 7970 Black Edition 3GB
I would REALLY prefer a 680 or one of the newer 690's, but Im not waiting another month or more so this is the next best thing I guess. Its the ONLY piece of hardware I am compromising on
PSU: Corsair Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX)
Storage: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-255SAT3 512GB SSD
This is the only piece of hardware other than the GPU im semi "meh" about....only because of my storage device/SSD ignorance, but it reviewed well and comes recommended
OS: Win 7 Pro x64
Display: Keeping my Hanns-G 28" 1920x1200 (for now)
Still deciding on a fan controller.....cant seem to pin one down that I really like.
This thing should be a BEAST and is a ridiculously huge uprgade from my current E8300/285GTX setup.
Any snafu's or red flags?
Any and all input appreciated TY
