Would you put a GTX 580 in this system I'm building? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Always learn to build your own. I honestly believe that (almost) anyone is capable of doing it, and there are many, many tutorials out there on youtube to get you started, such as these: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...computer+&aq=f

Below I have built a system that is around the same price and is at least 2 times better. That PC is way overpriced.

thanks guys, unfortunately I don't have the interest any more to build my own -- I'd rather pay a bit more and just have it done for me. I know it's bad, but it's the truth.

I posted this in the appropriate board here for anyone who is willing to help, i'll send you a $50.00 gift card should I buy your set up :-)

thanks for all the info so far

Yeah, I don't really understand the fear of building yourself except not having a warranty. Putting the square peg in the square hole and the round peg in the round hole isn't very hard.

Its not like the old days where you had to spend hours setting jumpers and fiddling the the BIOS just to get windows to be able to install. I could go to the store, buy parts, come home and have a working rig in about 2 hours total. Its just not that hard which is why the big PC manufacturers have come down so much in price or started offering customized parts and paint to catch peoples attention.

Buy those exact same parts from Scan.co.uk, newegg, or NCIX and I promise you that you will save a few hundred.
But you can get far better for your money no matter what you do.

Def. go with a 2500 or 2600, no point in going with the 45nm tech. Also, it does seem way overpriced.

I mean if you really just don't want to build your own, this site is where I would go: http://ecollegepc.com/

They're a lot better than iBuypower or cyberpower IMO.

1gb is enough. Id recommend building your own system as others have said. Its really not hard and alot of fun to learn in the process. Do yourself a favor and try it on your own. We are here to help you if you run into any problems.

If it were me, Id go 2600k, 4gb of ram (unless you need 8gb, which you most likely dont) decent sli board like asus p8p67 pro or gigabyte ud4, gtx 460(just one for now) and then maybe in the future another for sli, quality 650w psu. Hard drives and other stuff is really just a matter of preference. I personally like western digital caviar blacks as they have proven reliability, speed, and a 5-year warranty.

While the 580 is the best performing single card solution (aside from 590 or 6990 etc.) its overpriced. GTX 460 is a far better solution. they can be had for about $100 usd if you go used or recertified. Right off the bat that saves $400usd. Also two 460's in sli outperform a single 580.

Also, this psu is the best deal going right now I think. Its solid, and with that $10 promo code its $54.99usd and after MIR its $39.99.
