Hi guys/gals, Planning on my first self build within the next few months and registered on here for some advice, this is what I'm currently planning on getting: Budget: £1000 or thereabouts, less is better naturally Main uses of intended build: Gaming, MMO's, some music creation and CAD/Revit so I need a good all rounder. Monitor resolution: 24inch 1080p which i already own Storage requirements: 1tb will be more than enough and planning on using 2 existing 250gb drives to supplememnt from my old Dell 9100 if thats even possible? Will you be overclocking: yes Looking around I have come up with this list of components: Fractal design R3 i7 2600k Corsair H80 cooler Antec TruePower New Modular 650W Asus p8z68-v pro motherboard Corsair vengeance 1600mhz 8gb (2x4gb) Asus nvidia 560ti 128gb Crucial Real SSD 1tb Seagate Barracuda Big standard dvd rw Windows 7 Scan basket link here Any advice or observations are welcome as I'm a bit a noob when it comes to this stuff, Ive shopped around a bit and reckon I can get the components for around the £1070 mark, failing this self build of course I had also thought of trying these guys. Info that would be useful: 1. Im planning on a z68 board as they're the newest out there and want to be future proof for as long as possible, my last PC has seen me nearly 6 years now and still running games at decent detail and framerates, good idea? 2. Im not planning on using the cacheing feature of the z68 but rather have a 128gb boot drive, anyone have any experience of both systems? 3. Have I dropped a boo boo on any of the parts I'm using? 4. Is it worth waiting for Ivy Bridge? Thanks very much for your time guys.
