Question Building a Beast - Help Appreciated

Hi,

Budget is about $2500. Here is a screen of everything I got in my cart.

Any suggestions, feedback, better prices, ideas, problems etc would be very helpful!

You can see I'm getting a 4 Monitor setup going. Just need to find a good, affordable mount for that.

I had trouble finding a good Hard Drive. I don't need a super huge one really.

Thanks a bunch, looking forward to feedback!

I would go with newegg. Everything I see on that list is the same price or cheaper. I've ordered several of the WD caviar black 1TB from them and never had a DOA, they are always very well packaged and their service is great. They also have bigger if you need it.

You don't need `1050W, especially at 220 bucks.

A Corsair or Antec psu at 800W will do just fine.

I'd get diffrent TIM. being conductive sn't a good thing. TX-2 is a good choice.

"I'd get diffrent TIM. being conductive sn't a good thing. TX-2 is a good choice."

Could you elaborate?

I changed my PSU to a 750W modular Corsair.

I'm actually gonna go with a Seagate 2GB, I like them and there free HD utilities.

TIM = Thermal Interface Material aka thermal paste or compound.

Newegg.com - Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound
