    SSDs are also expensive as fuck. I might consider getting one for a boot drive but besides that, I don't find it necessary.

    OK don't ever get 16Gigs of ram From the post I've read above, you should get better GPU's and 8gigs of ram, throw in a SSD if you have the money

    I'm overclocking to around 30%. It's the only reason I considered water cooling. Else I would have stayed on air.


    Also, @Charizard, 2x Velociraptor 300gb would cost me around $500 whilst 2x 1tb HDDs would run me around $100-$150, depending on the brand I decide to buy. It just doesn't seem worth it to me.

    And, @Bombsaway707Jr, I think 2x Radeon 6950s will suffice for even the most graphic intense games.

    How the fuck is 2 6950s, a 2600k, 8/16gig mem getting you anywhere near 2800 dollars?

    Case, MoBo, cooling, and then mouse, head-set, and the what-nots.

    Oh, and the sound card. Forgot about that. And my network card. I said should. I don't plan on making this myself either.

    still, a mobo, both those cards, your ram, your processor and PSU should cost under 1500 which means you would have to spend over 1000 dollars on a case, cooling, mouse, headset, and sound card, a network card is cheap as shit.

    Why would I need to lie about a price? Fuck, I'll go conjure the screen for you.

    Corsair 800D - $275
    ASUS Maximus IV $370
    Intel Sandy Bridge i7-2600k - $315
    Corsair Dominator - $130 (8GB); $230 (16GB)
    XFX Radeon 6950 - 2x @ $550
    VisionTek 2100 Network Card - $70
    Creative Sound Blaster Titanium Fatal1ty - $150
    Samsung 1TB HDD - 2x @ $130
    Corsair HX1000W - $230
    LG Optical Drive - $100

    If I missed anything, feel free to tell me. Total adds up to around $2,250/$2,350 and let me state one more time that I am NOT building this myself. This doesn't account for any water-cooling parts because I have yet to decide on them.

    It can't possibly come to $2800 Processor is $350, GPU is $450 , I don't know motherboard but it's probably like 200$ , ram is $150 , case is $250... all that other bullshit crap.. let's just say $300. all adds up to... $1700
    which is $1100 lower then what you state so.. unless you getting a $1000 monitor i say lie

    You're spending needlessly on that system, not only could you substitute it for cheaper parts but you can find cheaper prices for the parts you're getting.
