First Intel build. Looking for some reassurance. - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Gigabyte's board & Asus's P8Z68-V LGA are both price similar and are x8/x8. Some to consider there.

As I said before, IPS is worth the extra cash since it's the one thing you'll be looking at the most, you won't regret it once you've experienced it. Let me put this way, would you rather cheap out now and have to invest 150% more later, or spend the extra 50% now to enjoy something more superior?

I'd get a cheaper thermal compound if possible. They had one that was designed by **** Etsu but labeled from a different company. Was suppose to be good.

Also, I don't know how important the SSD is for you in terms of every day tasking, but I'd probably just Raid 0 with those Spinpoints. They're suppose to be pretty fast for HHDs.

This would free up like 120 bucks in your budget, and you could use that to upgrade any other components.

No. Some boards have 2 PCI-E slots, but one of them runs at x4 or x1. Make sure it says that it runs dual @ x8/x8 or that it supports SLI/Crossfire (some, but very few, support only one or the other).

$13 dollars is way too much to be spending on AS5, other than that I see no glaring issues.

as for ditch the SSD. . . You don't know what you are missing. I had Raid 0 10k RPM raptors and the SSD's put them to absolute shame!
