    New build

    Hey all,

    I am looking to start a new build on a budget. Basically, I would like to play Rift with everything maxed at 1080 resolution. What I came up with is below, with plans to add a second video card in the near future. I am still shopping for a case. Any thoughts?

    Video Card
    MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC Video Card

    OS HD
    OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5" MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    Second HD
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    Blu-Ray Drive
    LITE-ON Black 4X Blu-ray Reader SATA Model iHOS104-06

    Monitor
    Planar PX2710MW 27" Full HD HDMI WideScreen LCD Monitor w/Speakers

    OS
    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders


    Thanks!

    I think you should be good. I play Rift at 1920x1200 with full AA on a GTX470.

    Just a heads up.
    A 2600K won't fit in the R3Formula.

    UGH. That's what I was afraid of. What motherboard should I be considering? I admit to being confused by the whole Sandy Bridge debacle.

    Nevermind. I see that I need a 1155 socket board. Anyone, know if there are Asus in the channel yet? Everywhere I check are still backordered.
