By the way, as far as memory goes, here is today's Newegg Shellshocker:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233143

More than you will need, but 16Gb for $85 is pretty good. It's also only 1.5v, so it shouldn't need any extra cooling.

You're welcome Kings Fan. Got those instructions off Slickdeals of all places, haha.

iTunes throws a fit if you try to pull your library from anywhere besides the default Music folder. This allows you to keep your library in it's default place while still being off your precious ssd, which is a life saver. Also noticed dvd ripping software and other various things like to use the default Documents folder to store stuff without asking...

My god does it ever. My itunes music is stored on my NAS, and everytime I set up a new pc to access it, I seriously have to let it process for a full 30-40 hours. Itunes goes from responding to not responding repeatedly for that long before it finishes. Unbearable.

I still have to install my 128 GB SSD and have been trying to compile info from various sources about the best way to handle installing Windows & File Management so as not to fill up the SSD yet not have broken links and File Registry errors with programs being on the Storage HDD yet looking to be installed on the "C/ drive".

By the way, if anyone wants a GPU monster and keep it single slot, Newegg has the HD5970 for $400 shipped after a promo code:

http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1636433

That's pretty nice for those looking to get a monster GPU and only use one slot.

But I agree there's little to no gain spending on RAM above the 1600 MHz speed with our set-ups ... if anything MAX out and get 16 GB instead of 8 GB, it's cheap enough to have the extra RAM for now and later if ever needed, there's little reason NOT to do this IMO. The $40-50 is cheap insurance for futureproofing and potential improved performance.

As for a HD6950 versus a GTX560ti ... let's see if I had to recommend a card ... ummmmm biggrin.gif ohhhh what one would it be .... ahhhhhh ummmmmm smile.gif




Pssst a TOXIC 6950 wink.gif
Thanks for all that reply..I think I am going to go with the Gskill sniper..

Thanks for your help..

Cheers!!!

Hi, newbie here but add me to the list smile.gif

P1040526.jpg

The freezer 2 pro is a backup cooler, i tried a Corsair H100 but found it far too noisy (pump was resonating through the case too much, fractal arc mini) also had a antec kuhler 620 in which tbh was perfectly fine but i sold it lol, anyway

I decided to try some decent aircooling again and bought a Venomous X but before I open it would like to know if it will fit? I tried a cocage silver arrow or whatever and that was too close to my gpu for comfort so sent that back.

ANy help would be appreciated.
