A heads up on my proposed build.

  scott373 30 Jun 11

Hi everyone, just wanted to show you what I'm planning on building. All I need is a few OK's from everyone to check it will all work fine - I know PC building is a lot more complicated than it first seems.

Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz @ 4.80GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor

MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti Twin FrozR II 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

Asus P67 Sabertooth Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard - (Sandybridge) * B3 REVISION *

Corsair Graphite 600T Midi Tower Case - Black

Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 750W V2 High Performance '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply

Corsair Vengeance 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-16000C10 2000MHz Triple Channel Kit

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-Bit

Intel 320 Series 40GB 2.5" SATA-II 25nm Solid State Hard Drive

Corsair Hydro H60 CPU Cooler with free Akasa Apache Fan (Socket LGA1366 / 1155 / 1156 / 775 / AM2 / AM3)

Samsung SH-B123L/BSBP 12x BluRay ROM / 16x DVD±RW Lightscribe SATA-II Optical Drive

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache x2

I've checked a lot of it myself but I'm sure you guys know a lot more about it. The main thing I'm unsure of is the power and if I have enough of it.

Only a couple of points, the Sabertooth mobo is a great board but I think you would do better with the Asus P8P67.Read this review. Mobo Review and the other point I would like to make is that you would be better off with a OCZ Vertex 2 Series 60 GB SSD, which is something I have, I have my OS and about 70 programs (all games etc go on my 1TB drive, with around 18GB's left. So I think you will fill up the 40GB SSD quite quickly. I would also up your ram by 2GB.

I have been building for a while now, just about to start on a HTPC this weekend, so any questions do not hesitate to ask.

People ask for advice and we all give it. It's as innocent as that I don't work for Gigabyte.
