Hows this eh? Got an AlienWare expert to look at it, he said it was VERY good and would last for many years. And it is able to run all games at highest graphics with no FPS problems.

Anything you guys would change?
post #5 of 19
Yeah, get the 2600k if you're gonna overclock. Otherwise, stick with the 2600. Otherwise, looks okay to me.

What should i upgrade for maxing out?
post #9 of 19
I have a non-k 2500 and I play RIFT at max settings on my single 1080p monitor.
I get ~120FPS in Brink. I scored something close to 34 FPS in the Metro Benchmark.
I also got a decent score in the Heaven Benchmark with heavy tesselation.

I think you'll be fine. As for upgrades, you can always add another 6970 down the road.

As a side note, if you aren't going to overclock, you could save some money and get an air cooler instead of the H50. If you want to overclock, it's pretty simple with the 1155 CPUs. I would add that you probably should spend the extra dollars on the 2600k; better than regretting it later.

I also find your name to be kind of repulsive

overclocking on lga 1155 motherboard is easy. there are programs to automatically do it for you

anyways, get a hx 850w power supply so you can one day crossfire that 6970.

It would be worth it to get the "K" version of your CPU. Your motherboard supports overclocking and you are buying a CPU cooler too, so why not do it?
