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:
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.
