#1
I7 980x
2x Asus GTX480
Asus Rampage II extreme
Corsair hx1000w
Corsair CMX6GX3M3C1600C7
Antec ninehundred Two
WD caviar black 500GB x2 (raid0 until SSD's, storage after)
Corsair H50
Samsung SH-B038L blu-ray reader/dvd rewriter
Samsung syncmaster XL2370
Microsoft wireless desktop 3000

will add 2x 80GB intel ssd later in the summer

i made this build for my new pc and i am wondering if i should change anything aside from the GPU's and CPU's
i do not care about game keyboard/mouse since i think they look hideous

Change those to what? Is there something faster out for the consumer market? Tongue

Hmm, all looks nice there (besides the horrendous cost for little / no gain over cheaper hardware, of course).

The storage solution seems bad though. Drives are too small, as I bet you want them to be your storage drives later on.
Better go with 2TB drives. And maybe don't raid0 them, often it's not worth the extra risk.

well spending that much, it would suck to find out that i should have changed a part so i get kinda paranoid thinking i might have added the wrong partsTongue

@rama
well i have to keep my other money aside else i will lack the money for an asus G73 laptop so i can't really spend a lot more than this for now since i also needed a monitor
also why is there a risk to having them run in raid0?

If you don't plan on getting waterblocks for these, may I ask for toasts and sunny-side ups?

i've seen many later reviews stating the temps have been improved since the prerelease review cards
they now go about 85c wich is allright since i don't plan on overclocking them

the reason is because i personally feel 1GB is slightly lacking and there is no 1,5GB 5870
considering in my country the difference between a 2GB 5870 and a GTX480 is only 20 euro, i think the performance difference justifies the 20 bucks per card

The reason why it's named RAID0 is because when one drive failed, you will get 0 files back.

well it won't be used for very important work until after the summerbreak and i will have the SSD's at that point (important files go backupped on there)

And if you do get those 2x80GB SSDs, don't RAID0 them; the improvements are negligible with bigger risks.

i see... guess it would be wise to go for a single 160GB SSD then
it's a shame about the extra failure risk considering it did add nicely in speed
