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...
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
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
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
