@Jaskanwar: Is is possible to fit a 12 incher GPU like MSI GTX580 lightning in a mid size cabby like CM 690II Advanced...???
 

Piyush

Lanaya
580 will fit in CM 690 Adv. II but it will just fit
however i'll recommend OP to go for HAF-X or 600T graphite
both look stunning

i would choose the corsair graphite 600t..
and dont get me wrong but until now i have been given new configs without any reason so as to replace my original config..
Was there something wrong with it ??

as you wish -


Processor - Intel Core i7-2600K

Motherboard - ASUS P8P67 DELUXE B3 Revision (REV 3.0) - why deluxe? any benefit to you of spending 16k?

Cpu Cooler - Noctua NH-U12P SE2

Ram - CORSAIR Vengeance (2 x 4GB) CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 - why 8gb? are you going to run virtual machines or heavy renderings.

GPU - MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk

HARDISK(S)

PRIMARY
(Boot Drive)

SSD - OCZ Vertex 3 – MAX IOPS Edition - VTX3MI-25SAT3-120G (120GB) - any point of uselessly spending 17k? are fps going to increase by 10 in games?

SECONDARY
(Storage)

HDD- Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB


DVD Writer - ASUS DRW-24B1ST

PSU - SeaSonic X Series X-850

Case - Corsair Graphite 600T - just for looks or 10k show off? cm 690 II advanced or haf 912 advanced will provide you with all features you need and ample space

Monitor - Samsung PX2370

Sound Card - ASUS Xonar DX - not needed unless you a big audiophile

Speakers - Logitech Z506

Keyboard & - Razer Cyclosa Bundle
Mouse

Mouse Pad - RAZER Goliathus Gaming Mouse Mat-Fragged Speed Edition - Omega S


estimated cost of this setup - 1,25,000

@Jaskanwar: Is is possible to fit a 12 incher GPU like MSI GTX580 lightning in a mid size cabby like CM 690II Advanced...???

it will just fit.

he can get a GTX580 Twin Frozr II/OC which is shorter by 1.5"

even CM HAF 912 Advanced for around 6k will be good choice.

a mistake -
6970 lightening is longer. haf912 advanced will do good.
 

masterkd

Padawan
totally agree with Jas and my vote goes for CM HAF 912 advanced
and i think the second config will be better as 6970 in xfire will be better than 580 SLI

@dep
at a 100k budget a person can get a 2600k :-D
H70 is damn costly. NH-D14 or NH-U12P-SE2 are cheaper and best
z68 or atleast sli/cfx supported mobo please
6970 lightning cheaper by 1k at smc

and afaik HX1000 is 14k~

^the second slot is x4, so cfx in x4 x4 mode is supported ;-)

dep what about this -

Actually 6970 lightning is looooong (12.2"), so not sure if tempest evo can fit it.

^^ gr8 dude.

Better to go with a Sound card, especially for 5.1 ch..

Tempest EVO is quite bigger than HAF 912.

HAF 912 (W x H x D)mm :230 x 480 x 496

Tempest EVO (W x H x D)mm: 211 x 521 x 562

The only reason for not suggesting a i7 2600k is the purpose the OP.

ups not needed..
and guys change of plans
i wont be getting a new rig right now due to ahem.. academic reasons & my brother is planning to get a new rig, so...
this rig is for my brother who is a casual gamer , but an avid movie fan,that said i think his needs would be met with a 560 gtx hawk instead of a
MSI R6970 Lightning. he would also benefit from a Xonar Dx as d3p5kor pionted out.
and he would also benefit from the 2 tb storage space for his files , and the ssd, well that is his insistence.

Processor - Intel Core i5-2500K

Motherboard - ASUS P8P67 Pro B3 Revision (REV 3.0)

Cpu Cooler - Noctua NH-U12P-SE2

Ram - G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL

GPU - MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk

HARDISK(S)

PRIMARY
(Boot Drive)

SSD - OCZ Solid 3 Sata III 60BG


SECONDARY
(Storage)

HDD- Seagate Barracuda XT ST32000641AS 2TB

DVD Writer - ASUS DRW-24B1ST

PSU - SeaSonic X Series X-850

Case - Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced

Sound card - Asus Xonar DX

Monitor - Dell UltraSharp U2311H

Speakers - Logitech Z506

Keyboard & - Razer Cyclosa Bundle
Mouse

Mouse Pad - RAZER Goliathus Gaming Mouse Mat-Fragged Speed Edition - Omega S

The budgets the same (100k) and the only difference is the replacement of the 6990 with the 560 gtx hawk (which i think will suit his needs as mentioned before)
So i dont need to create a new thread now do i ??
as only the gpu and storage are different,and all else remains the same..

verify the internal space for gpu please.
HAF 912 Advanced has removable HDD cage to accommodate large gpus.

@op

then for casual gaming and movies you dont need a 2600k and 560 too. a athlon II x4 640 + sapphire hd6770 combo will do.
