Building my first gaming system, on a loose budget but trying to save money, hence custom-building myself rather than buying a pre-built PC.
Haven't purchased any of the components yet but here's what I'm interested in putting together:
PROCESSOR: Intel i7 LGA 1366
MOTHERBOARD: Asus Sabertooth X58 1366
RAM: Corsair DDR3 6GB 1600MHz Tri-kit
HARD DRIVE: Hitachi 1TB Serial ATA/300 7200RPM, 32MB Buffer
VIDEO CARD: Diamond ATI HD 5670 1GB PCI-Express
SOUND CARD: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Sound Card
POWER SUPPLY: Apevia Iceberg 680W Green ATX Power Supply
And I haven't chosen a case just yet, thinking mid-tower, so I don't exactly have a min- or max- amount of fan installation space as of yet.
Any advice at all would be GREATLY appreciated!
