Default Re: Building great gaming rig

But you pay a much higher premium for them which really isnt worth it, and the rate at which they are improving doesnt make the purchase justified either, just stick with a nice big 1.5TB hard drive unless you really need to room or your securing really important data.

get the intel i7 920, as none of the other versions are much faster despite the price difference. 2xgtx 285's would be nice but also 2x4890's would be good. You dont really need extra fans any decent case will come with plently of far pushing power, the HAF is a very good case for cooling.
<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

I7 930 @ 4GHz : Noctua D-14
Gigabyte X58A-UD7 : Asus GTX 480
G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case
Silverstone Strider Plus 1Kw : Sony DRU-870s Optical
Samsung P2350 Monito
