After a slight financial crisis I had to sell my gaming rig.
CPU: Intel Q6600
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
MOBO: Evga 780i
OS: Win Vista 64bit
Now that I have everything taken care of, I thought it would be a great time to build a new gaming rig. These are the parts that I have chosen:
Case: COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Mobo: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
GPU: XFX HD-587X-ZNFV Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
CPU: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I5750
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Total price: $1,041.93
I'm going to purchase a Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler but not from newegg. It seems like they are ripping off on the price for that at the moment. Here's the link for it anyway
Also, a friend has generously given me his Corsair 620 power supply.
I would appreciate any input on this build. Thanks.
The only thing I'd change is the HDD for the faster speed.
And probably go with this board to save money, same P55, Quality and comes with Quick Boot, but no SLI.
What's your budget? Are you sure you don't need a full tower case?
Based on the reviews of the CM 920 II it seems like it has plenty of space.
Consider Cooler Master ATCS 840 Case.
Alright, if you don't mind using a mid-tower case, the CM 690 II Advance case is a very good option. I would really push a little more to 6GB of DDR3 RAM ( 3 X 2 ) as you are using this for gaming.
