Default Gaming Build - Final

Hey guys,

Take a look at my list plz and tell me if you see ANYTHING at all that you think I should change. Am I missing any misc. wires or software that I'll need? I'm going to be ordering within the next week probably so I want to run it past you guys to make sure it's all perfect.

The newegg link won't work, just sends me into the sign in page.

That looks like an awsome setup to me. I dont think you need to change anything.

You could always get an OEM processer and then invest in a Zalman hsf if you got the money.

I had a link to my parts list on newegg but it didn't work so I just copied the list and pasted it here.

And I'll look into the Samsung HDD and Zalman hsf. thanks

no need for oem proc and better HSF, unless you want to over clock. You may want to look at OCZ PSU if you are ocing. Even if you are not, they are much stronger. Rest is nice.

That monitor is amazing, i bought one about 2 weeks ago to replace my 22" 2060u mitsibishi. Im very happy.

I'll most likely overclock. Maby not right away but after a while I want to for sure. I was looking at the Zalman fans and there's like 10 of them. Which one should I get?

Why are OCZ PSUs so much better? The Antec one is SLI certified....
