Hey all, just building my own PC for the first time ever!
My budget is between $1600-$1700 AUD (Australian Dollar)
This PC will used for alot of gaming, mainly FPS and frapsing also.
Note that I'm building for the first time so I need "guidance" lol.
Just need people's opinions to help me make the best choice
Here are my final specs:
MOBO - Asus P6X58D-E - $240
CPU - Intel i7-950 OC'd to ~4GhZ - $319
CPUCOOLER - CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ - $35
RAM - 6GB (3x2GB Trip Chan.) Corsair Dominator 1600 - $179
GFX - 1GB ATI RADEON Gigabyte 6870 - $315
HDD - Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ - $59
DVD - Samsung SH-B123A Blu-ray DVD - $69
CASE - Coolermaster Sniper Black Edition - $199
PSU - Corsair AX750 Gold Power Supply - $234
TOTAL - $1649
1) How easy with this setup is it for me to reach 4+GhZ on my i7-950 and is the 950 easily overclocked?
2) Are there any parts that you can think of that would perform better for less cost?
3) With the CPU Cooler, what is a good fan to mount either side (120mm x 120mm, preferably blue LED to match case
Thanks for help guys, great community here!
