Hi! I've decided to build my own gaming rig, but i'm a newbie. So tell me what do you think of this configuration: Case - thermaltake element V or HAF 932 CPU - i5 2500k GPU - GTX 580 frozr 2 (probably +1 via SLI), or asus radeon 6970 with 2 fans (also +1) MoBo - asus p8p67pro RAM - hyperX 2x4gb PSU - corsair 1000w CPU cooler - Noctua NH d14 Hdd - seagate barracuda 7200 1Tb
much faster load times and use the HDD for storage
I also agree with the SSD, get yourself a 60 GB SSD for around a hundred bucks.
Kilowatt power supply is also overkill -- a 850w Corsair TX850 will do
Everything else is fine.
I would also change the motherboard to a ASROCK Z68 Extreme4 motherboard if you want Z68 chipset (for Lucid Vertu and SSD hard drive caching). Very neat features to have.
