Gaming, photoshop, dreamweaver, multi tasking. Soon to upgrade to SLI video cards. Hard drives in Raid 1 with SSD as boot drive. 8GB Ram @ 1600mhz
Can't tell if this guy's getting downvoted for part choice or lack of pics.
nice build, but if your gonna get te i7, why not at least go with a 2 gb video card?
Not even PCIe 3.0
Bad build. You spent way too much to only have a 560 Ti.
Nice build. Pics are needed though. For once it's someone who actually makes use of their i7 lol
could have gotten a better gpu
Only thing I would change is the motherboard. You can get an ASRock Extreme 4 for ~$120 and it's a Z77
If I were you, I would go with 7200 RPM hard drives (like some Western Digital Caviar Blues), even if they're used as secondary drives. 5400RPM drives are quite slow, I would only recommend the WD Greens if you're building, say, a home theatre PC.
Aside from that, everything listed looks nice to me, and you're making proper use out of a Core i7. :)
First of all, Corsair makes great power supplies. And the i7 worth it, since he runs hyperthreaded programs. Read his description first.
Thanks, I might put some pics up if I get chance. This is quite an old build, had it for a year now. Components were top of the range at the time at least. My video card has been fine, I can still play everything on max graphics, Guild Wars 2, Battlefield 3, Need For Speed Most Wanted 2 etc etc... I bought my video card from scan.co.uk, never been happier with it!
