My $1700 Gaming Rig build...

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7 (gives lots of headroom for future upgrades including 3way SLI/Crossfire as well as easy overclocking with 24 phase power)

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandybridge

Single EVGA GTX 570 ( will go for a 2/3 way SLI in future)

Corsair HX 1200W power supply (for future graphic card upgrades)

Corsair Vengeance 2 X 4GB DDR3 1600MHz

Corsair Performance 3 series 60GB SSD

Samsung Spinpoint 7200RPM 1TB harddrive

Noctua NH-D14 cooler

Antec 900 case

Guys please comment...

Get a bigger case such as a BitFenix Colossus or NZXT Phantom rather than the Antec 900 other than that, seems all good. Actually an SSD might be a good idea too.

I don't think that ram you have chosen will fit under the NH-D14 check out mushkin (ridgeback 6-8-6-24)

maybe 1kw instead of 1.2kw

yeah reconsider the memory.

2500k instead of 2600k and money could be spent on a 580 instead??

just a thought

The 900 is only 200mm wide,the 902 v3 is 220mm and should fit the noctua better.

And you need other rams to fit under the under the cooler.

But look for a better case than the 900.

Other specs look good

Why not a lian li pc a70f case.
