Here's the updated list :

Intel Xeon E3-1230V2
Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 Motherboard
Corsair Vengence 2x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz High Performance RAM 
Western Digital 3TB Caviar Green HDD (Not sure if I should change this?)
Intel 330 Series 120GB SSD 
Xpredator X1 Black, Red (I was desperate... Doesn't look too bad anyway)
Corsair HX750 (Not sure to what should I replace this with. How to know the min power consumption anyway?)
MSI HD7870 Twinfrozr 2GB DDR5 (What other variation you guys recommend? The other variation is from Sapphire. Just a tad cheaper)
Hyper 212 Evo Turbo (Any better suggestion for this?)
Asus 23" vs239h-p (Any better suggestion for this?)
Logitech G105 (Any better suggestion for this?)
Logitech G500 (Any better suggestion for this?)

Looks decent.

 

Does the Extreme 4 support it?

 

You could change it

 

Decent case, is there any others you like?

On a tight budget so...

 

Asrock's site says yes. Unless they are lying

 

I think I'll stick with this as of now

 

Not that within this price though

Dammit, I've been presented with yet another path to choose from in SnU: jgray91 vs Saya no Uta (Click to show)
call MC the lost and insane or call Ryouko the badass doctor

Meh I'll leave that for tomorrow.

For the PSU, you can calculate how much power you will need here: http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index.html

For the graphics card, I've heard that the 7850 gives you better bang for your buck than the 7870.

The Hyper 212 is a good pick as long as you don't get RAM with heatsinks that stick up more than a couple inches...

You might look at Acer monitors and see if they're any cheaper than Asus monitors...

for the keyboard since you'd just pay extra for macros keys, cheapest one w/ best reviews would do fine.
Never understood the point in extra for mouse >_> probably b/c i never did hardcore gaming.
The GPU is up to you, just look at the warranties. 
The PSU depends on the tdp of all the other parts of your computer. I think you're fine.
3tb is a lot :0 I have 750 gb and barely go over 220ish gb. But then again I don't game/hold music (for now).

Edit: nvm you using xeon probably implies u'll need 3TB
mech did a great job :D

SAVE!

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Then call the badass doctor

Then call the MC after you finish the other ending...

I don't think I'll get a hybrid. I'll get the normal SSD+HDD

Depending on what RAM you get there might be some clearance issues. I know my RAM and heatsink are having some issues with clearance because of how close the RAM is to the heatsink/processor.

There are quite some SSHD's for sale for the same price as HDD's. They also have good feedback. Nowadays, for their price they can be replacements. A 500GB SSHD right now is $68.

We used to do 250 a night.

It's ATX standard, +- a few cm but it is still mid atx.

 

Yes that is much better. SSD and HDD. If you have the money

 

.You just did!??

 

...lolipops, butcracks and pandas

 

That was the original one.

 

You need the correct socket, The correct same exact model cpu support, and native controllers in your case.

 

It can't jus support Xeon. It needs to suport the model you want. Best to get boards that support it standard. Flashing your bios is quite annoying for most cases.

Meh.

 

Again, meh. Remember, the platters are puny and if he's going to access any total of files that's above 8GB and if/when the NAND, which basically acts as cache, doesn't flush, his performance will drop drastically. I would just get a good 3.5" HDD with a higher platter density. WD10EZEX is bare minimum or the 1TB/Platter WD Green counterpart. He can also go with a Seagate or Hitachi 1TB/Platter drive if he wants.

 

Mid ATX? That doesn't exist you idiot.

 

I thought it was something like candyfloss, buttcracks, and pandas.

Asus 23" vs239h-p (Any better suggestion for this?)
Logitech G105 (Any better suggestion for this?)
Logitech G500 (Any better suggestion for this?)

The motherboard I'm a bit meh about. Vengeance RAM is fine, I guess. I just don't like the look of it. I would go for the low profile ones if you don't want any clearance issues if you're going with air cooling due to the fact that you aren't going for a standard ATX sized motherboard.

 

People need to stop calling these drives by the Caviar name. The Caviar name is dead. Now it's just WD Blue, WD Black, etc. instead of Caviar Blue, Caviar Black, etc.

 

There's a list of recommended SSDs on OCN. Like what Sean, the maker of the guide, says, just go for the least expensive one on the list at the time since they all perform relatively well.

 

The case...meh with me but if you like it and if it has decent airflow.

Seems fine. You can use PCPartPicker to determine the power consumption or look at things like benchmarks that show power consumption under load of i7 chips. PCPartPicker doesn't have server processors in its database so it doesn't account for the TDP of that.

Sapphire is a good company too, but just go with the MSi.

I usually look at IPS and VA monitors (and PLS) so I usually don't give much of a damn about TNs but I've heard good things about Asus monitors.

 

The keyboard...meh to me since I have a Filco mechanical keyboard but if you're fine with rubber domes, I guess.

Issues with acceleration due to the fact that it's using, I believe the Avago ADNS-9080 or some other laser sensor that's close to that. I would go for the G400 as it can go up to 3200dpi I believe. Optical these days is probably the best way to go IMO.

No Xeon. I just chose i7. Looks like about 490W. I guess I can lower my PSU to 600W then

Really? I think it was the other way around. I know that 7850 OC'ed will get 7870. I need to read on this

Will Corsair Vengence give this problem?

Let me source that. I just chose this because it has HDMI, which I want to hook my PS3 later on LOL

OK. Not a gamer myself. I never even regularly use my mouse with 5 buttons...

I could fill 3TB in a few months. My storage of 5.8TB has about 1.2TB left. I could fill them up but I'm using 1TB internal and 1TB+1TB externals to torrent and I need to manage them properly

 

Mind you this is a normal PC and not a server

That doesn't factor into efficency and power loss throughout years. Add 200W onto what that gives you is what I call for.

Crap, I was talking about cases.

 

The platters are puny but the reviews aren't too bad for them.

 

ATi is dead but you wouldn't call a graphics card the AMD 3870 would you? Caviar may be dead but the drive he is buying is still under the Caviar name as it is an older one.

Best looking at that price. It comes with 1 front and 1 at the back. That's OK right?

 

MSI it is then

 

Not a heavy gamer. a normal keyboard would do fine I guess

HDMI->DVI adapters are a thing :) (the signal can even be converted from DVI to VGA...)

@mechy, again, my first choice that i thought on the spot was to do your second suggestion. Damn my ability to pick the right way the first time!

Basically.

 

MSI, HIS, wahtever are all good companies. They all have their bouts of bad reviews.

More adaptors... Just what I need. I just thought about something. I guess I need a speaker, preferably on the monitor itself, since I need to hear what is happening with my PS3. Sigh...
