Re: Looking to build rig for heavy gaming. Where to start?
Ok so I've finally decided to go ahead with the following components for my build.
Graphics Card: ASUS RADEON EAH5870 1GB
CPU: Intel Core i7 920 / 2.66 GH
CPU cooling: Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme Rev.C
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage II Extreme X58
Monitor: Samsung 23" 1920x1080
Power Supply: Corsair TX750W (750 watt)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 6 GB DDR3
Case: HAF 932 - Full tower
HDD: WD5001AALS - Hard drive - 500 GB
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit.
CD/DVD Drive: The one in my old PC!
Total cost: ~1750 euro.
Looking good right?
Also, I've got a question about cooling. I'm OC'ing my CPU and I have a TRUE120 to cool it. But let's say I wanted to OC my RAM and GPU, do I need additional cooling components or will the fans and airflow of the HAF932 suffice?
Edit: Just remembered that the 5870 has an in-built fan so OC'ing shouldn't be a problem right?
