    Default New gaming rig

    In about 2 weeks i will be buying new parts for a new gaming PC.

    i am posting the parts im planning on buying, and would like to your thought and opinions on my list

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811352051 - case

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128835 - motherboard

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814487142 - video card

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817438034 - Power supply

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819117559 - CPU

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231888 - Ram

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103099 - CPU Cooler

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147467 - SSD

    this is the parts i am thinking about getting, but i am second guessing myself on the ssd. first never used a M2 style ssd and second is it truly worth the money for it. At 350 dollars, it's pricey. But at 4x faster, i am drooling.

    If i do not use that one i will go with either

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147361 - SSD


    lastly i need a very nice headset. i am thinking this one, but will take suggestion. No logitech, though. Had a really bad experience with them. will not buy another one of their products.

    Setup looks amazing! Should be well off for quite some time ^^

    For your headset, I'd recommend looking into turning a "audiophile" headset into a gaming headset with a mic. These headsets will offer much better comfort, better sound quality, and usually stronger materials for similarly priced gaming headsets. Also, 2 high quality speakers will sound much more natural than digital 5.1 surround (in most cases). I myself use a sennheiser hd 558 and V-moda mic and I could seriously wear this thing for days without any discomfort.

    Also, you should consider water cooling. I went with the Corsair H100i because I had RAM clearance issues with the air cooler. Works like a charm.
