What do you think of this configuration ?
« on: April 06, 2013, 05:17:32 am »
I want to build a gaming machine with heavy multitasking capabilities that would last a few years in terms of obsolescence.
I'll probably host a few things for personal use as well as the occasional Minecraft server.
Here we go :
Intel i7 3770k so I can over clock before having to change.
Asus sabertooth z77 because I know Asus quality.
Cooler master hyper 612s. I don't intend to OC immediately and this is a very good cooler.
Sapphire radeon HD 7870 because it's cheap and crazy powerful. I also heard good things about it.
1 or 2 tb barracuda because it's fast, reliable and cheap.
Corsair vengeance 16gb dual channel kit (pc3-12800) because they have a good reputation and it's the cheapest 16gb kit.
OCZ modxstream pro 600w because it's modular.

The total for this is 950€. What do you guys think of it ? Any unbalanced stuff I should change ?

Edit : This could also go in "computer usage and setup help". I didn't pay attention when posting.

Very good, but personally I'd throw in an SSD (even if just for the OS), they're expensive but really worth it IMO. And I really like the Corsair Hydro series coolers, but the one you selected is good too.

Yeah I thought of a SSD and a Corsair hydro cooler (probably H100i) as future upgrades because right now this is just what I can afford money wise.
I already have a case, but when I have the money, I'll probably get a Corsair Vengeance C70 case because it looks awesome and has a better inside (up to 10 120mm fans is pure awesome too).
