Pending Bulldozer Build...

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
So the wait for Bulldozer is killing me and therefore I decided to help my anxiousness by making a thread about the build that is going to happen.(Unless Bulldozer is really disappointing then it might turn into a SB build)

I have the following parts already:

Case: Lancool (Lian Li) K7
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 520w
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
GPU: 2 x Sapphire 5830 Xtreme (Currently in my sig rig)
DVD: Sony Optiarc DVDRWd
SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX120G 3.5" 120GB (Since Two Cables and Gsa700 thought it would be a good idea to peer pressure me into getting one)
HDD: 2 WD Blue 1TB (WD10EALS) in RAID 0 as well as a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
RAM: 8gb (4gb x 2) Kingston HyperX Greys DDR3 1600 CL9

As well as the following peripherals:

Cideko Wireless 3d Mouse Keyboard
Razer Black Widow Ultimate
Klipsch Promedia 2.1
Saitek Cyborg R.A.T 7 (incoming and not in picture)
Plantronics 377 Headset (also incoming and not pictured)

Here is a photo of the current parts on hand


Hope you all enjoy and are excited as I am about Bulldozer.

Whoa, nice!

However, I recommend getting a sound card too since you have the ProMedia 2.1s.

Maybe a better PSU, that one is going to be right at the max with that setup and Crossfired 5830's.

I have thought about it but the two mobos I am considering are kind of bad for dual GPU+Sound card setups. I am either getting the Asus Sabertooth or the Gigabyte UD7 so their layouts are not that great.

Any recommendations as far as good "bang for the buck" sound cards though?

Well, the 520W Antec High Current Gamer is a 520W SeaSonic S12II, plus AMD only recommends a 600W power supply to power a system with two 5830s in it.

Now, AMD is referring to 600W peak-rated units, but the 520W Antec High Current Gamer has a 520W continuous rating. That means it has quite enough.

I have the PSU in my sig rig if I need more wattage but if you ask any of our local PSU gurus (like Phaedrus2129) this should be plenty for this system as well as efficiency should be better than running an overkill PSU.

Thanks for your input though.

The only ones I can think of right now are the Xonar DS, DG, D1, and DX. Although, my brain is about as good as tossed salad right now, so I'd have difficulty explaining the differences.

The xonar cards are good for both gaming and music. The creative xtreme gamer is a little better for gaming for a similar price, but not as good for music. The only thing the xonar dx is really bad at is BC2.

Eiter the xonar dx or ds are recommended, the only difference being the ds is pci and the dx is pci-e.

Edit: This thread has a really good list of everything audio related, especially sound card suggestions. http://www.overclock.net/sound-cards...-products.html

Thanks for your input though.
Fair enough, just seems a little low to me.

As far as efficiency, there is no problem running a larger PSU. Just because it is capable of putting out more power doesn't mean it is always putting out said amount of power. For example, a 1000w unit isn't going to draw 1000w at the wall if the system is only using 500w.

Also, the 80+ ratings of PSU's are rated at specific wattages and that is rarely 100% of capability.

Just sayin.....

Have fun.
