Case – coolermaster haf 912 advanced $107
CPU – Intel 2500K $215

by the way im getting the gtx 500 series due to the price reduce bcos of the new gpus, im hoping this pc can run all games on high/ultra for the next 2 years :D
also, anyone heard any news about the gtx 600 series and ivy bridge, i cant find their news xD
Any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers :D
That case is ugly (like the rest of the haf series). You should better go with something elegant and functional like the Fractal Design Arc Midi tower.
Instead of a ThermalTake PSU I would go with a Corsair/XFX/Seasonic/Enermax one. Even an CoolerMaster would be better.
It would be nice if you could ad an SSD in such a system...
Why not an AMD HD 7x00 series card or Crossfire?
i will look at other cases but its not the most thing i care about in the build
hmm, good advice on the psu, is antec psu any good?
well the reason im not getting an AMD HD 7000 like the 7870 is bcos they are overpriced in australia, and im not really a extreme gamer, my plan on the gpu is:
1. get a 560 then sli after
2. get a 560 then upgrade to a better one in a 2 years or so
3. wait for the new gtx 600 series
yes antec psu are good
I would suggest if your only going to run the one monitor go with 480gtx because you get more memory, bandwith, dont have to worry about sli scaling and you dont have to wait to get the sli to see the performance. and you may have to buy a used one or never even find another one when you finally get around to buying the other card ( i ran into this issue when i got a 260 core 216 ) on top of that you will save around 100$ with about the same performance. I have a 480 and it did get hot till it burned in saw 98 C during furmark but now i dont see anything over 85 C.
yeah 480 is the best value on the market right now(i can get it for $200) but i heard it has heat, noise and power issue.
hows this, buy a 560 and upgrade to a more powerful card in a year or so and sell the 560; or buy a 7870 straight away without nay upgrading in the future. those 2 cos about the same
does anyone know when will nvidia release their new cards? i always prefer them
u guys know the site hwcompare.com? are their comparisons ture? doesnt quite make sense to me
The HAF case is intended to provide the best cooling solution to maximize airflow, the case was never intended to be a show piece, the 600 series is gonna be expensive right off the bat your better off getting a 560 or 580 and upgrade down the road and you would have extra money to put into your machine such as a SSD, and stay away from XFX power supplys, they have a habit of not meeting 80plus standards.
i would get the cm 690 II case its a great value
i have one :)
680gtx came out today but not really faster than the 580's just less heat and noise
i would also get the OCZ ZT Series 750W Fully-Modular psu for $80
I wouldn't get any OCZ psu's they are cheap for a reason, unless you plan on baby sitting the computer while its on, they have a tendency of shorting out and sometimes catching fire.
woah dude where did you get that from. i have one it is built extremely well, its quiet, the cables are nice, and it plain awesome!. plus ocz has a 5 year warranty
From a few people that ive repaired their machines for, your probably one of the lucky ones lol. 5 year warrenty covers the psu not the rest of the stuff in the machine if it fry's it all.
looks good man maybe you should wait for ivy bridge to roll out soon. (1-2 months from sources) even if you don't go for ivy the sandy bridge cpus will have a significant price drop.
those hard drive prices are still killer, but i agree with antec psu being good. I been using an earthwatt 650 for awhile now. It runs really quiet. Corsair PSU are also great, had one died on me but Corsair's RMA process is quite snazzy.
Personally hate coolermaster cases these days, they have been stored wrong and warp from cold to hot and forces you to ship it back wich costs around 30$ for shipping due to weight, Id suggest maybe getting a Cougar evolution case because they are cheap but well built, and have quite a few nice features.
Pretty damn jealous! I need to buy a new rig myself for upcoming games. Ughhhh
awesome rig, i have the CM 690 II and its really pleasant to look at, but would recommend switching the 120mm exhaust fan in the back, makes quite a bit of noise, if you are ever considering getting the 690.
