I've decided to go ahead & attempt to build my own PC. I've spent the last few day's watching YouTube video's of Rodney & his reviews. I want to build an all purpose PC & It's going to take some time as I slowly get the funds to buy piece by piece. Here is some of the items that I looking to get & would love your guys feedback if any of these are good or not & if there is something better. Thanks
Tower - Cooler Master HAF X
SilverStone 1000W Silver Modular PFC Power Supply
Seagate Barracuda XT 2 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch Internal Bare Drive
Bargaincell 3.5" USB2.0 All-in-1 Internal Card Reader/Writer
LG GH22NS50R 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 22X DVD-R 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM Internal Drive
Intel DP55KG Extreme Series Desktop Motherboard
Intel Core i7 860 Processor 2.80 GHz 8 MB
XFX ATI Radeon HD 5870 1 GB DDR5 PCI-Express Card
1000w seems to be a huge stretch.
Going Gold with the Haf X *thumbs up*
If you have no problem with money I would add a SSD Sata 3 hard drive and Raid 0 all of them together for faster performance. The Western Digital Black 1TB is only 99 when the Seagate 2tb is $230.
If you are a hardcore upgrader like myself, I would suggest getting a x58 based motherboard as it will carry the future of 6 core processors more into the future.
Also I would highly recommend a motherboard that has both Sata 3 and USB 3.
GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R with an intel i7 930 2.8ghz Processor
The 2GB HD 5870 can handle up to 6 Monitors at the same time.
That's just my 2 cents. I can name prices for any of my suggestions of you need it, also if you give me a price range budget I can point a slew of just the right products for exactly that.
Good luck! Also I would suggest saving it all and buying all the parts at once and look for SALES! Always look for sales, they are out there.
1. 1000W is excessive
2. Cut down to a 1tb hdd and add an SSD.
3. i7 is better upgrade path but I think an EVGA board is more suitable than the ud3r with easier overclocking.
4. 2gb 5870 is useless. No one uses 6 screen CF-the performance on the models is identical for non crazy people.
5. Buying it in parts is good if every part is on a good sale but to save on shipping and get combo discounts it can be advantageous to buy all at once.
above all else HAVE FUN!
