Hi everyone! I'm really new to forums and Techspot seems like a good place to start! I've decided to build my own gaming computer and I need some advices from other people. Since it's my first time building a pc, I don't want to mess things up. So if you have any advices for me or if you think my build is not that great or if some components don't match, I'd be more than happy to know. So here's the thing: CPU - Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950 Item# on newegg : N82E16819115211 MotherBoard- ASUS P7P55D Deluxe LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard Item# on newegg : N82E16813131400 RAM - CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model TW3X4G1333C9A G Item# on newegg : N82E16820145251 Video Card - EVGA 01G-P3-1465-AR GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card Item# on newegg : N82E16814130555 Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive Item# on newegg : N82E16822148433 Power Supply - Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V version 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply Item# on newegg : N82E16817371015 Case - COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Item# on newegg : N82E16811119197 Monitor (First choice) - ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers Item# on newegg : N82E16824236049 Monitor (Second choice) - I-inc iH-252HPB 25" Widescreen LCD Monitor - 1080p, 1920x1080, 15000:1 Dynamic, 800:1 Native, 2ms, 16:9 Item# on tigerdirect : H94-2502 By the way, I'm planning to spend around 1 500$ on my Pc. I think it should be enough for a decent gaming computer. I live in Montreal, Canada and newegg.ca seems to be a good place to shop (prices and shipping looks great). But if you have any suggestion on where should I buy my stuff, let me know! p.s. I can't post links to the components since it's my first post, sorry for that :S Thanks for your time. Looking forward to hear from you guys!
