Hi there!

Im building a gaming pc for the first time and just wanted to be sure that this will work so i can buy the parts.

So this is my final gaming setup.........


Motherboard: ASUS P8 Z77 PRO

RAM: G-Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz - F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL <---- (Should i get x2 4GB modules or stick with the 8GB one?)

Video card: EVGA Geforce GTX 660 SUPERCLOCKED

Power Supply: Cooler Master 625w Extreme <--- (For SLI in future is this enough to handle x2 OC'D GTX 660s and a OC'D i5 3570K @ 4.GHz?)

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K

HDD: 1TB Western Digital SATA3 7200rpm

Case: Raidmax Altas



 
Solution
good setup everythign will work i would recomend getting the 1x8gb easier to overclock and it makes it were u can upgrade in the future. also 625W would be really pushing it for sli for them graphic cards i would recommend the corsair 850W for optimal performance.

I don't want to OC the cpu a lot because I'm using the stock heatsink from the box. can it be clocked at a higher frequency on stock heatsink?

Confirmed for tons of crap. Stay away. Far away. And again with the Samsung 830. We've been over this, stop *** posting SSD! It's reliable isn't an argument or even a point. Plenty of SSD are reliable. The question is what's the fastest, cheapest, and most reliable; and the 830 ain't it.

Depends on how much of a stickler you wan't to be on the price.

Muskin Enhanced Chronos: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226237 =$164.99

Adata Premier: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211603 =$189.99

Newer Mushkin Enhanced: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226356 =$209.99

Corsair GS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233312 =$219.99

Corsair GTX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233343 =$229.99

Any of these would be so much better.

It is outperformed by both the muskin, and the adata, for a cheaper or better price.

The 4Ghz is temporary until i can get more $ and then might consider getting a corsair h100 and going for maybe 4.8ghz or more

Ill use my giant 1m diameter fan for the time being hehe
 


-chronos: uses async flash. might want to compare it using a the deluxe edition. for benchmarks, im going to use a agility 3 120gb. they are both drives that have no extra firmware and both use the standard async flash
-premier: uses standard sync flash. posted a comparison
-chronos deluxe 7mm edition: uses toggle flash like the samsung. im going to use the patriot wildfire for comparison. they are both using toshiba toggle flash with no extra firmware
-corsair gs: also uses toshiba toggle flash with no extra firmware. represented with the patriot wildfire

all of the tests i have found are based around the 120gb capacity as more drives around that capacity are tested at anandtech

you other options dont look like they are a hell lot better

samsung 128gb vs adata
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/533?vs=605

samsung vs gtx: id say they are beating each other in different things
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/533?vs=704

samsung vs agility 3: smooshes agility
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/533?vs=371
samsung vs patriot wildfire: id also say they are matched
