Cousin's new build - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I support the 2x4 GB chip for ram. I have used up to 6GB of ram on my current build and I never render, or video edit... it was just doing updates... 8GB of ram is the Enough for today point in my opinion. The G.Skill is good ram. I'd definatly get at least 1600 and I am running the CL9's I'd look at the CL8 or CL7... The G.Skill ECO's are great ram too; otherwise the Ripjaw/RipjawX is great stuff, Especially on sale.

Also I like my coolmaster hyper 212+. Great price and does the job for me. However, with a 2500k or 2600k you may want a bit more cooling than I need, but I am not sure how much cooling those chips need... for more info on the 212+ follow the link in my sig.

For the price you're paying, two 6950's will destroy one 580 for the same price

6950 $244 on Newegg

Crysis Benchmark Comparison

It depends on what you're looking for, but the 580 isn't the best bang for your buck imo

I think he's planning on adding a second gtx580 at the end of the year so I'm gonna leave that one.

The only weak link i see in your rig is the cpu cooler, Not because it's crap but it gets rather toasty after 4.5ghz
