So today i saw one of my core components on Newegg for a discounted price!! What does that mean? UPGRADE TIME BEGINS!!! HUZZA! This by no means will be a fast project. It'll prob trickle for a long time due to the nature of my life's coarse. (baby on the way)
Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II (Check)
MB: Asrock Extreme 6 (Check)
CPU: Intel i7 3820 (Check) On sale at newegg for 279.99 OH YEAH!
RAM: Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 4 16GB (Check)
SSD: OCZ Vertex III 120g x3 (Waiting)
HDsk: WD Green Carv. 3 TB x 2 (Waiting)
Cooler: H100 (for now) (Check)
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M 1000w (Check)
Last but not least Video card. I currently run a cracked out HD 6850 from HIS with a modified VF3000a cooler from zalman. It's been a champ and plays most games i want to play just fine. I have a 2nd one just sitting (stock). I think ill use the 6850 for now until this entire debacle settles with the NVIDIA HELD BACK Due to "poor performance" from ATI. I don't want to be upgrading 5 months from now hence why i bought the 6850's when they came out. But......
I have been keeping my eye on the 670's as they seem to be the SLI kings IMO. ( I tend to flip flop on fanyboyism between our 2 heavy hitters) Before the HD6850's It was GTX 285's
"By all means elaborate on this topic, its the hardest one for me to decide." (keep epeen down) i.e. why buy the 6870 when the 6850 cocks the same? (my logic=what i buy) 680 (overpriced) 7970 (overpriced) Both are not considered out but why buy one when you can buy 2?
As you can see the H100 Listed is for now. I do plan on doing my first water cooled system in this build. The H100 WIll be kicked down to my current system 1366 platform to cool the i7 920. Finally stable 4.2ghz~!!!! SO i like the idea of that.
What can i say. No name for my system yet. Just the urge to build. Im still contemplating a raid card. i just haven't seen how people cable manage them yet.....imo it'll be ugly no matter what you do. But there's always a way (EVIL LAUGHS) HAHAHAAHAH O.o right?
*(Check) - I have it.
*(Waiting) - Sitting in a buy list
Thanks for looking!! (TJharlow started this mess)
P.S. Bob.....you're case.......good god inspiration at its best.
