  1. Currently, I'm stuck with a computer that's just okayish as a gaming and media (sound, graphics, etc.) production computer, and that's by 2008 standards. Now, it's pretty meh. So, I was thinking of putting together a new computer, and I've got a parts list assembled. It's probably overkill, but I want something that will last me a bit longer while still being pretty good for gaming and especially music and 2D/3D graphics production than how long my current system has.

    So, what do you think of this current parts list?

    Case - $130: CoolerMaster HAF XM RC-922XM-KKN1
    Motherboard - $120: Asus P8Z77-V LK
    PSU - $150: Cooler Master RS850-AMBAJ3-US
    CPU - $240: Intel Core i5-3570K
    CPU Cooler - $90: Phanteks PH-TC14PE
    SSD 1 - $200: Samsung MZ-7PC256B
    SSD 2 - $200: Samsung MZ-7PC256B
    RAM - $110: Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B
    Video Card - $280: GTX 560 Ti 2GB

      No point paying for a sound card. This isn't the 90's anymore.

      Onboard has gotten so much better. The mobo before my last was fucking terrible, you could hear 'noise' all the time.
      I have a sound card because I like my speakers and headphones separated. If the dedicated sound card sounds any better it's not dramatic.

      And a Creative Labs, at that. Ugh...just asking for trouble ;-)
