Well I have been researching for a few weeks and decided to with the following. I just wanted to run the components by everyone and get your thoughts. I hope this is the right section for this and if not I'm sorry.
Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz
Asus Sabertooth x58 Motherboard
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 6GB (3 x 2G
240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 998805
Mushkin Enhanced Callisto 60gb SSD (for windows and maybe a few games)
WD Cavier black 1tb (for everything else)
CPU Cooler- Noctua NH-D14
Now is where I am kind of stuck.
PSU- Any suggestions? I know the corsair has great reviews but I'm kind of mad at them at the moment. I was thinking about the SeaSonic X750 Gold rated.
Case- I want something with awesome air flow but i don't want something that looks cheap. I just want a plain good quality full tower case. I was thinking maybe lian li but I'm unsure of which model (budget $200.00). I love my 800d honestly, everything but the temps. I still haven't added/upgraded all my fans and after adding up the cost for a good WC set up I said f*** it.
Video card- I'm waiting on the 6970 but I don't know how much longer my 8800gt is going to last. The prices of the 5870 are dropping a lot in price, there's one on newegg for $299.99 right now and it's very tempting. I'm just wondering how much better the 6970 is going to be, going by the 6870 reviews you would think/hope the 6970 is going to be a complete monster!
