Building Third Computer - Would Like Advice from the Ground Up - Page 2

post #11 of 23
The best place to sell your old parts would be here, eBay, and to local computer makers. I don't want to suggest craigist... But if you get desperate...

The 2500K should be under warranty unless you actually fry your chip due to OCing then it's void. You could over clock and it could break by another factor and should be under warranty.

Here's a thread that explains it well:
Here.

The build looks good! Just when you have funds upgrade your GPU and maybe buy a cheap heatsink cooler now. My suggestions the CM Hyper 212+, it's cheap and will allow you to over clock to 4.5Ghz.

If you have anymore suggestions or questions you want answered just ask man! Happy to help.

Allahcalypse,

Heres list of stuff I would recommend you buy if your going with an i5 2500k build.



Now as for raid 0, with SSD's you dont really want to be raiding them as SSDs benefit more from something called "garbage collection", which is where the drive basically 'cleans' itself up every now and then, and something called TRIM, which is a similar thing to garbage. However, with raid 0 you lose the TRIM function, so the drive slows down quite a bit over time, trust me i know, my raid 0 ssd's are slowing down now

So I put in a 120GB ssd for you, that should be enough for your operating system, programms and music etc. The ssd I linked is a quick drive, admittedly not the quickest on the market right now, but if you want the quickest and you wanna imcrease your budget by $100 or so, have a look at the OCZ Vertex 3 120GB drive,

Awesome, I'll check out OCN and eBay for selling parts. Yeah, I would really only get the warranty because of the risk of frying it, but since that voids the warranty it's moot. Thanks again!

Oh, is the CM Hyper 212+ the cheap heatsink/cooler you suggest for me to get now? Or would I need another one later? I just as soon as get the one I'll need eventually sooner or just use the stock cooler that comes with the i5.

Hmmmm I would do the SSD but I'm on a pretty tight budget, so the $100-200 price range would have to wait. I was going to eventually just add another $50-60 500GB-or-1TB HDD and RAID 0 them.

How would you compare a SSD to a RAID 0'd HDD set up ? Thanks !

Yeah, getting the 2500k. Most people told me to go for 8 gigs of ram, why do you say 4?

Hmmm and what do you think of this mobo? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130582

Oh hah, you're right the 4890 is old. I already have it. I'm using now and was just going to keep it and transfer it over. In deciding what kind of card you need, I (think) it's best to look at the games I play: Team Fortress 2, Starcraft 2, Warcraft 3

I was thinking of upgrading the GPU when Battlefield 3, Diablo 3 or some of the Starcraft 2 expansions start coming out. Saves some money now so I can get a better, newer card when those games come out, in however many months.

Yer man,

I'd suggest getting the hyper now, not later! It's a great starting cooler.

He might have suggested 4GBs because if your just gaming you won't need anymore than that.

With the motherboard options, I'd have to recommend the Gigabyte z68-ud* series.

Have a looks at: (Depending on your budget.)
- Z68-UD3
- z68-UD4
- Z68-UD5 (Great board!!)

These boards are in ascending price order.

Except when you want to work with 2 TB of space instead of 120GB for double the price.

SSD are considered like the second return of God in this website and its getting me crazy.

I think you have enough computing power to wait many more moon's, I'm sure you will be glad you did. With an overclock on the q9550 and a better GPU.. You will question if you are even on the same computer, It will be hella good, for a long time.

I think due to his current budget, he won't be buying any new harddrives/ssd's.

I believe he is reusing his old HDD to save money on the build.
