Default How would you build this up?

Looking to start a build project with tons of power. I'm going with this board EVGA nForce 790i Ultra SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI, Socket 775, ATX, Audio, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, SPDIF, USB 2.0, Firewire, eSATA, RAID 132-CK-NF79-TR at TigerDirect.com I have many ideas as where im taking it from there but trying to narrow it down. Now what would you guys do from here as far as case, gpu, Processor, power supply, pretty much everything. I am going to use the SLI setup. I've never worked with it b4 so this will be something different. Yes, it is gonna be a gaming pc. And its going to be a project over time so ive got time. I think which case im going with is my biggest concern atm.


Thanks, get at me.

That board is a gigantic waste, especially at that budget.

If you want a high power machine, go with an i7 build. I'll do up something for ya.

Well, with that budget you probably wanna build an i7. You can't use that mobo with an i7, because i7 uses LGA 1366. Also, can you buy from Newegg?

Edit: Just beat me Hikari lol

Okay, for that budget you can definitely get an i7.

Try this.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV6GK - Desktop Memory

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S75QB 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache IDE 22X DVD±R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Thermalright "Limited Edition" TRUE Black Ultra-120 eXtreme CPU Heatsink (Socket LGA 775 / LGA 1366 / AM2 / Xeon*) - FrozenCPU.com

If your not overclocking you can omit the cooler. This build is pretty much identical to mine and I love mine. With the TRUE 120 you can probably OC that proc to around 4GHz.

Good luck on your build

Edit: I see everyone else just beat me to saying you should get an i7

Hikari's build is nice to. SLI GTX 260's are better than a single GTX 285.

Also could go with Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies its 850W, it's more expensive upfront, but if you use the MIR, it takes it to $94.99 which is cheaper than the 750W.
