    Default My Deathstar

    Sup pimps.

    So my current rig (I am on a mobile device using Tapatalk so I cannot put it as my signature) is a amd micro system which is doing great for laning which I call my Star-destroyer.

    But I need to build my Deathstar.
    I need help picking a mobo.
    This system, I want to be built around the 2700k.
    The initial system need to be built under 2,000 USD with the focus on high upgrade ability, and top notch game game performance.

    Specifically the motherboard is stumping me. Ive always only built systems with "good enough" boards.

    If it can fit two graphics cards in the budget then more power to it,
    I'll ease my way into SLI

    And yes I intend to eventually or off the top have watercolor

    With a 2k budget you can pretty much get the top of the line right off the bat. An Antec Kuhler 920 would work nicely then you could do custom water later on. And before you buy a mobo check with DrDeath he may have one he could sell you.

    The G.1 sniper looks like a lot of bang for the buck :3
    I also have to consider a good case and a good psu for OCing the 2700k pretty hard and future SLI

    Also the idea of the Antec Kuhler is something I was considering to do the job until I can get together good custom WC parts.

    Thanks Sam, that's a smexy case.

    And the green on the G.1 is a little off-putting, but it is what it is I guess.
