Default New build.....

.....of the non-paintball kind.


My current desktop can't stay with me, so I decided to build a new one


Got 3/4 of my parts b/c UPS wanted to mess with me. Both of my boxes got to Houston last night, checked today and they say there not coming till monday. After cussing for a few secs I let it go and decided its not that long. Well then they show up at 6:30 and decide to mess with me by just delivering one of the boxes So now I have a few parts I got local at micro center and some that came in the first box and I am left with 3/4 of a computer for now, missing graphics card and harddrives.






Final build tally:

Intel i7 920
EVGA X58 motherboard
Corsair Dominator 6GB triple channel DDR3 1600
EVGA GTX 260 Superclocked Edition video card
Corsair 650RX 650watt Power supply
western digital cavair black 640GB 7200rpm harddrive x 3
Samsung dual layer DVD+/-RW with lightscribe
Rosewill 52-in-1 Media card reader
Cooler Master HAF932 Full Tower
Nippon Labs Locking head SATA cables x5
Going to run windows 7 - 64 bit beta for now, will downgrade to vista ultimate 64 if there are to many problems, even though I don't really like vista.

Build pics and benchmarks to follow up on monday/tuesday

Its more then enough, the graphics card peaks at 200 watt at full power so that leaves 450 watts for everything else. It can easily handle the job since the rest of the pc will max out below 200 watts. Specs from the company are always overkill to protect the noobs from frying there system, in true power usage I will be atleast 200 watts over my peak usage.

Real world testing on sites like toms hardware all show the i7 with a GTX 295 (highest end GTX card) peaking under 300 watts at 100%

Based off all the peak watts I got from different test I should be looking like this if everything is running at 100%:

i7-83.6 watts
DDR3 ram-10 watts x3
video card- 190 watts
harddrives- 6 watts x 3

So total I will max out around 321.6 watts.
