Help me spend $2,500.00, and I'll send you a gift card - Page 7

post #61 of 63
Also, my build comes with a 2600k overclocked to 4.6ghz

All you need to do is add the 2x 580's wherever you buy them from, and your all set!

If I buy any of your configurations, I'll send ya a $50.00 gift card of your choice for the help :-)

This is the system I'm currently configuring:
Configured PC

And I want to buy this card to put in there (not offered on Lu):
EVGA GTX 580 3072MB

Total Price: $2388 (my budget is $2,500.00 max)

Please help me, I'm a noob these days :-). Some have recommended Ibuy/CyberPower/Digital Storm instead, but I wasn't able to configure anything even close in performance at the same price...even though I was told that the above configuration is overpriced.

I'm a graphics professional who likes PC gaming as well (Call of Duty, Crysis 2, Battlefield, Oblivion, etc.) and am running at 2560x1440 on a 27" monitor.

Thanks all,
Dan P.
Like other said, build your own.

Switch them to
- Core i7 2600K
- Asus X58/ICH10R Rampage III Extreme motherboard
- SLI GTX 580
- Corsair AX1200

Other things like HDD and etc. You can follow up in my spec.

I too have 2560 x 1440 resolution. I have no problem running BF3. As for professional designs job I use my MacBook Pro'10 reconnect to my primary screen. (GFX Designer / Animation Producer)

I highly recommend to shop like on Newegg. GTX580 some costs only $400. Get parts on Newegg or other shop like http://www.quietpc.com


Also love to have this case: http://www.quietpc.com/ca-en-cad/pro...edator-evil-bo

Maybe you can get it this round.

The link you show us, it's totally overpriced. You can get superior performance with a little less like around $2k only.

Mime costs $1600 min without counting addtitional light LED, fans accessories.

The Cheapest GTX 580 on newegg is $450 + shipping. And he listed a 3GB model, so that is probably the model he wants. Which will be atleast $540 + shipping and an EVGA one is 590 + shipping

So his deal on is the best for a EVGA GTX 580 3GB.
