Which Build should I get? - Page 3

Thread Starter 
Forgot fans, PSU, HD, DVD Drive, Etc. Getting Combo's are BS, because they pair a Really nice CPU, with a crappy VRM'd Motherboard.

WOW
That's a deal. Go with this, you probably already have an optical drive laying around so $635 and you are good.

The 2600k trades blows with the 980x 990x NOT the 2500k the 2500k only comes close to those chips in gaming

aside from that still go 2500k it doesn't completely decimate the 1055t like most say but it is a fair bit ahead of it even in most multi tasking setups

psu and hdd are there, and all of these parts are TOP of the line... I am sorry but you have no idea what you are talking about. (ask anyone and even look at stickies if you need proof)

Intel i5 2500k + Asus P8P67 Pro - 375
4GB G.Skill 1600 CL8 DDR3 RAM - 45
Corsair TX750 PSU + Samsung F3 HDD - 155
Cooler Master HAF 912 Case - 60
=635.

Other crap.
DVD drive = 20$
Corsair A50 - 40$
FANS - 15$ per..

You get a better mobo with TRUE crossfire (8x/8x instead of 4x/4x)
You get better performing and matching ram (since you said colors were important to you)
You get a better PSU and a faster HDD.
The HAF case has better cable management and better cooling, and numerous other advantages.
The A50 outperforms the H50, and is cheaper.
There are also things like 10$ coupon code on HDD, 15$ rebate on PSU, 10$ rebate on case, 15$ rebate on the CPU cooler.

Oh, Okay, LOL. Didn't notice.... - I do know what I'm talking about, it's just the fact of I skim more than actually read, that and the fact I cannot focus 100% because of me having Bipolar.

Hence the reason that I said it trades blows with sandy bridge CPU's...

Np, look around do your research, I don't think you will be able to beat the performance : cost ratio of that build.
That build should cost 700$ before rebates, that leaves you 100$. I would be carefully of CFing the 4870, you may need to zip tie some fans to them to insure proper airflow.

Believe me man, I've got that covered. whenever I get a case, I get as many fans as I can get into the case, whether It's bolts, twist-ties or string.

Found out A Core i3-2100 (3.1Ghz) can run BFBC2, and BF3 maxed out with smooth frames. I might end up getting a i3, but I am never completely sure.
