I am contemplating the following build for basic home use and some serious SWTOR gaming:
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P – $179.99 Review
CPU: Intel i7 2600k – $314.99
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 1600Mhz 2x4Gb – $54.99
GPU: ASUS DCII GTX 580 – $499.99
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint 1TB – $59.99
SSD: Crucial M4 120Gb – $196.99
PSU: Seasonic X Series 650W – $109.99 Review
Heatsink: Corsair A70 – $38.00 Review
Case: Corsair 500R Black – $139.99 Review
As I understand it, all of these components are compatible with each other. I just need to purchase separately an OS, a soundcard, and optical drive (I have a monitor and the rest).
Does anyone have any information on a good soundcard that will fit into the above system? Likewise, what am I looking for when considering a blu-ray drive?
Thanks in advance, gang.
