sorry to bash bro, I read through 3 different sites that were XSPC and HWLabs resellers for spain, and it was awful. Their selections are awful for watercooling. It was a nightmare. Long live easy to navigate pc component sites.

OP you should love me forever. took the time to figure out you're in spain

Haven't seen prolimatech at my store, but I like water :S

Also, the sabertooth is a terrible overpriced board,
Why?

Quote:
WHY would you think it lasts?
Military testing = pass
Server grade reliability = pass

Quote:
or a biostar extreme board
NO Biostar here

Quote:
the sabertooth costs way more than its worth
.
I just want it to last 5 years.



Quote:
Go to a lesser PSU, don't think of the future, unless you add on another card, you have no reason. Look at the 550w+ range, its all you'll need.
The card box itself says 600w ^^


Quote:
never mind, just saw your getting the windforce card. You have nothing to worry about in terms of temp. And do not for God's sake go to a 560 ti. Your 480s perform at the level they do at 1000mhz, and thats at stock 480 = not worth it.
Agree

Quote:
re think case, rethink crap watercooler,
I like the HAF X, I want to be able to not worry about temps. NO better cooler for same price here in spain. Noctuas are worth more.

Quote:
rethink overkill psu.
Allirght, but we have crappy selection here.

Thanks for the input

no worries, slight issue navigating the website and google translate doesn't seem to be working for me for some reason

For PSU, a 650w should be fine for a 480. I would get the TX650 V2 http://www.pccomponentes.com/corsair_tx650_v2_650w.html

The card box itself says 600w ^^

Allirght, but we have crappy selection here.

You're buying into marketing. They say all sorts of things to market to newbies, look at MSI, EVERYTHING THEY SAY IS MILITARY GRADE. Doesn't mean anything aside from pretty lettering on a box.


And its not wattage you should look at, its Amperage the card consumes. It is taken into account that a good quality 550w will provide the sufficient amount of amps to your card, even when over clocked and will be far more efficient at it than an 850w will be.

Check out my sig, where it says EVERYONE MUST READ THIS. to find out more.

also if you like the HAFX thats another thing. Still an ugly case and a terrible cooler, but thats just my opinion.


Just to clarify: why is the sabertooth bad? only 2 card sli, lacking sufficient VRMs for proper Overclocking, over priced when it should costs a lot less, cheap marketing gimmicks with a plastic cover, and so on and so forth.
