This system now or wait for keplar/Ivy

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Should I get this system now, this month of august or wait until keplar/ivy. Keep in mind, I need to build everything from the ground up, I don't have any case or mobo or power supply.

I'm building it through iBUYPOWER because I don't have the time to build a pc or the money to screw up building it. Yes, I know they are overpriced, but I want it done right.

It's a shame you don't have the time because you'll get a significantly better machine (and it sounds like that's what you're after) for a lot less. Don't assume just because you're paying for it from a "professional site" that it'll be done right. To be honest, I think you could buy the parts and build it before they'd even ship you that machine.

If you do insist on buying a pre-built, I'd recommend waiting. Also, with just one 1080p screen you don't really need 3GB of VRAM.

That's not SLI works. If you have 2 cards that each have 3gb of vram, you still only have 3gb of vram You also don't need a 1200 watt power supply for 2 gtx580, so you can save some money there.
Edit: Also, unless you're into CAD or video editing, I'd get the 2500k.

I recommend i5 2500k + GTX570. If you do gaming only getting i7 2600k is not overkill but a waste of money as it will give you the same performance.

Also GTX570 has a much better price/performance ratio. Get the GTX570 unless you want to have "the fastest single-GPU card in the world"

it only takes like 3 hours to put one together, its very difficult to screw it up to.

maybe you're better off buying a mac

but that shall be one godly computer should you order the ibuypower. it'll give you a chance to take apart your old one too so when keplar/ivy do come out you'd be able to upgrade the cpu and mobo yourself

Like all others, I must recommend building your own. If you have any problems, everybody here at OCN will be more than willing to help! Don't wait for Kepler and Ivy. With technology it you decide to wait for the next big thing, you will end up waiting forever because there is always something new coming out.
