250 bucks to burn!!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
my complete setup right now is:
i7-2600k (cooler master v8 in the mail)
8gb kingston hyperx blu (1600)
gigabyte z68-ud2h-ud3
gigabyte gtx 570 windforce OC
CM 690 II advanced
Logitech g9x
Samsung dvd burner.
cooler master silent pro 850w
Logitech z623
kingston 64g SSD
1tb HHD
logitech media keyboard (non-mech)

Recently found some money so im probably getting:
SENNHEISER PC166 (my setup has crappy onboard sound)
Steelseries Experience I-2 (icemat)
HAWKING HAWNU2 (wireless adapter currently gets 1-2 bars)

what do you guys think?? i am not really in a budget, i prefer to have my dream setup complete than to have 100 bucks more so if you think i could buy something more important for my setup tell me

Should of gone on water.

Right now a second 570 would be the best thing for your rig.

Can easily get a used one for like 230-250

Recommendation 1: A new motherboard wouldn't be a bad idea. But if you're happy with it, no problem.
Recommendation 2: Try and find a 2nd 570 in hopes of SLI. The For Sale forums are a great thing.
Recommendation 3: Go water cooling! does great things when done right!
Recommendation 4: Give me your money! Ill use it.

Any one of these (I like the 4th one)

how much fps would i gain, im playing bfbc2 max settings at 1920x1080 without any lag, the only lag i get is from my crap connection... maybe i can get a cheaper wireless adapter and a 570, but i tought i had about 1 year before i really need another 570... and i think i would need some extra fans on my case if i get another 570.

anyway if i do decide to sli right now, does it have to be the same one i have right now? or it only has to be another 570?


benching performace numbers mean nothing to me, if i dont feel the difference i dont care

It could be any other 570.
And you would probably need a little bit more than 250 if you want fans or wireless adapter AND another 570.

i knew i ****d up getting that MOBO but here in mexico this was like 200bucks, where anything better went up to 350+ so it has sli and can OC, my only complaint is that it dosent have pci ports and its small so i dont know if a sound card + 2 gtx 570s will fit, but the realted 899a (im not sure) onboard audio is not THAT bad, still i would appreciate a better source...
