    HEY GUYS!new system help please,so confused on why type of rig to build..
    You have helped me out allot. and hoping you can get me good quotes on this. i understand I'm getting greedy but LMK the price and ill do cuts at the end.this is what looking for and what ill be using it for to the "T" ..

    --WHAT I WANT/LOOKING FOR--
    system that looks GREAT LED lights
    VERY FAST at file transfer,and in general
    System that is VERY quite
    Must be able to stay COLD
    --what PARTS I would LIKE--
    preferably I7-950 CPU, or if it don't matter 920/930 (ill overclock if need be to = I7950 or better)
    DVD/CD burner FAST!another DVD/CD player/burner FAST(blue ray is not a MUST but for right Price then YES)
    USB 3.0 compatible, enough USB ports(currently using 6,but have 8)
    AIR AIR AIR, want a NICE NEAT SWEET CASE, would like good high powered fans LED, and if possible CPU WATER COOLED(<--- even worth it?)have 5--80mm fans good enough?
    1TB hard drive,room for another one
    a really good graphics card
    a nice sound card,possibly with HDMI compatible
    6GB ram high end ddr3 doesn't have to be 1600 if i can clock it to that.
    600-700 PSU
    wireless keyboard and mouse
    good speakers with sub
    22 or 24in Monitor,possibly with HDMI compatible
    LED , cooling , water cooling on cpu if possible, quite the better,cold cold cold if possible.
    --WHAT I USE IT FOR--
    gaming some times but when i do i want all high res to work
    movies,music
    surfing net
    being able to burn CD and DVD good pace
    file transferring.
    warranty is a plus.
    with all this said i know its allot, i can cut corners on some or wait on some...
    IE- wait on blue ray or pull from PC now
    IE- wait on ram just get 4gb
    IE- 500gb and get 1TB later,also have a harddrive i could use.sata250gb external just turn into internal
    IE- wait on an extra fan or add some later , have 4 currently now 80mm just not LED
    IE- keyboard mouse can pull from other system/speakers - if i had to monitor too but rather not.


    i know i sound like a nut,idiot,nub,the whole 9 yards just trying to be as detailed as possible.
    and i would have a budget of about...
    1100-1400.....maybe another 100$ but probably 1400MAX

    THANK YOU!! and please be honest , i know i don't NEED all this stuff but i do wonder on my PC one week im doing mad gaming next week im trying to do DJing, and other I'm pushing PC to the limits for fun...LMAO

    Uhh, if you want to buy/trade things from the members, this should be in the b/s/t forums.

    I would reduce the first post to something manageable, like so:

    budget $1400 absolute max, not a cent more and I need everything from monitor to speakers.

    Main uses:Gaming, good file transfer. Good speakers and nice monitors.

    What I am looking at: i7, perhaps lower? Good looking case.

    That way you get to the point straight away and we dont need to waste our time reading all the crap how you would like to surf the net and things like that.

    And you are not helping by making them read such a long and useless post, chop down the bits which can be inferred (for example 6gb ram and 700w psu, any guy worth his salt will spec out an i7 rig with those)

    If you want a full rig with i7 in it, what you spec'ed out is probably the normal range. you might want to take a look at AMD 965 BE the i5 760 based build. both of them can kick a lot of ass and you wouldn't lose much by dropping the 4 extra threads.

    Fast file transfer can only mean a few things: SSD (expensive) or WD black raided or something of that sort.

    200 - 300 $ over price...you guys have any ideas on what to change?these are all compatible components right?? keep mobo,graphics, CPU rest up for switching.

    and is this CD/DVD burner a good one?? should i get two(cheap!)??

    110$ back after mail in rebates....may they give me in store? lol

    Well, my point is that you already had one thread that was asking for suggestions... If this is yet another thread asking for suggestions let's keep this to one thread. But if you wish for suggestions for a intel i7 build I will do some more looking when I get out of class.

    i think i may pull the trigger on this...anyone have any thoughts??? it is all compatible right?

    edit--maybe this will work

    ill also add speakers / wireless keyboard and mouse / and

    Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R D...

    COOLMAX CUL-850B 850W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 ...

    at differnt places for cheaper...

    PSU 50$ and drive just 20$ keyboard mouse and speakers about 150$

    so that total is about 1500(not adding in the mail in rebates i get back) might call them see if they will deal, or wait till special..or down grade CPU/mobo to something i can clock that's just as good if not better...LMK guys

    I would not touch that piece of $h!t trying to pass as a psu. Also, I would drop the CPU to 930, and the mobo to a Gigabyte UD4. Don't forget harddisk too, they cost about $60 each.

    The motherboard you have selected is not compatible with the processor you have selected.

    CPU is Socket 1366; Mobo is Socket 1156.

    Opps, I missed that fact :banghead:

    And if you are going to get an i7 cpu, make sure you have a good cooler to go with it.

    Aside from the horrible PSU, and the already noted mobo problem, I would get a triple channel memory kit to complete the package.

    If he is going to get the 930=> triple channel, if i7 860=> dual channel. with his mobo/ram/cpu selection, it seems that he is choosing the P55 build but he says otherwise.
