Np. Filling up the form helps us help you.

Note: which games are you interested in playing? FYI, 3D gaming is roughly twice as taxing as regular gaming. For example, if you get 60fps on gameX playing regularly, on 3d mode you will only get 30fps.

thanks farsuka
can you explain why samsung is faster? its 3gbps right? am i missing something
thx for the suggestion for the cpu cooling, I guess I dont need h80 xD
 
MoBo - Don't have to rule out P67 unless you will see a real benefit from Z68
http://www.ukgamingcomputers.co.uk/difference-between-h67-p67-z68-and-h61-chipsets-a-22.html

CPU - Unless video editing, or something that uses Hyperthreading 2600k gets you nothing over the 2500k which will run cooler OC'd unless ya turn HT off.

RAM - Skip the silly heat sinks and use the low profile stuff. The only cooling effect of these big coolers is that they "look cool". While they served a purpose (when they were effective) w/ DDR2, they are absolutely useless on DDR3.

At more than 2" tall in certain areas the Corsair Vengeance could pose a problem for users like me who use large coolers such as the Scythe Mugen 2. I was able to use the Corsair Vengeance only after I mounted the fan on my cooler on the backside. Size is definitely a concern with heat spreaders of this size and therefore I encourage users to check that they will have enough space under their heatsinks before purchasing the Corsair Vengeance kit.

The problem I have with the Corsair Vengeance is the same I have with many kits of RAM on the market. Companies insist on putting large coolers on their RAM and it limits the choice in CPU heatsinks that can be used within users system. DDR3 does not require these elaborate coolers with its lower voltages which translate to lower temperatures then RAM saw during the DDR, and DDR2 era. Corsair is correcting this with low profile versions of its Vengeance line but ultimately I would like to see the average size of coolers drop instead of having to look for specific low profile versions of a memory line.

GFX - That 3 slot card will cramp future upgrades, only nets you 524 fps in Guru3D's game test suite and has very little OC'ing room. For as little as $60 more you could have 862 fps with twin 900 MHz 560 Ti's which, tho factory OC'd already, have significant OC room. IN SLI, the 570's only get 11 fps more at 873 fps.

PSU - 100 more watts, and $5 cheaper .... same 9.5 jonnyguru rating as Corsair TX V2

Cooler - Not impressed at all by the cooling and noisy as hell.

Case - Nothing to complain about but personally prefer the HAF and Antec full towers.....inkling to try the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow now that they seem to have got the kinks out.

thx JackNaylorPE for your detailed answer,
I will consider on downgrading the mobo to p67 if my budget becomes tight
I will be doing programming and some photoshop will it take use of HT in i7?
The RAM cost the same so I think I will just stick with the one I had before
I didn't get what you mean for the graphics, do you mean 2 560 ti instead of one 570? can you explain it in more detail?
For the PSU, which psu are you taking about?
I decide to take out the cpu cooling and use stock
and again thx for your reply :)

Programming and photoshop will NOT use the HT of the i7.
Explanation: Compilers will see more cores, but the heavy work is unfortunately SERIAL by definition (O(n) lines of code + high level linkages). Photoshop (cs4+) actually delegates heavy work to the GPU (2D).
