Who Is Planning A New Rig?

It's been over 4 years since I built my last PC and the only upgrade was a graphics card last year due to the original 8800GTX burning out!

So im planning to build a new machine whenever Ivy Bridge becomes available. im going to share what i have and what my new system will be:


Current System:

Asus P5k Premium - P67 Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (@3.1GHZ OC'ed)

Asus Silent Knight II CPU Cooler

8GB OCZ Dual Channel 1200MHz Ram

nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX 750 MB - nVidida GeForce GTX 480 1500MB

Standard 2TB HDD and 500GB HDD

Standard DVD Writer

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE Sound Card

750 Watts Thermaltake Modular PSU + Loads of Fans

The New System:

NZXT Enthusiast Phantom (Black) with USB 3.0

Asus Sabertooth Z77 Motherboad (not 100% sure yet)

Intel Core i7 3770K (Ivy Bridge)

NOFAN CR-95C Fanless CPU Cooler

Corsair Dominator 16GB PC3-14900C9 - 1866MHz Quad Channel RAM

OCZ RevoDrive HYBRID 1TB PCI-E SSD Hard Drive

Will Keep my 480 GTX for at least the next 2 years, as it's a bloody beast despite being old

Will Keep my PSU

Will Keep My Sound Card

Blueray RW Optical Drive

And Will Buy a swivling touch screen monitor when Windows 8 Comes out :D

Have you got any similar plans? would love to see it


I finally built my rig. a few changes on what was said above.

Got a Corsair Graphite 600T White Case and Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler

& i got Samsung Green RAM instead of the Corsair ones. Will update again with pictures.
