Opinions, Need to buy soon.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey all, so I just recently sold my little brother some of my PC parts and am in need of new ones to keep my PC up and going. Sold him my MOBO, graphics card, ram, and old monitor. SO I need a new setup. I have been considering going eyefinity or going to a water cooling loop bc of how hot it gets here in the summers and I would like to OC my system some. Here are the parts I was looking at if I went Eyefinity.
MOBO:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130600
RAM x2:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231444
Monitors x3:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001475
I really liked how these have a slim bezel and are 120Hz and the reason for this model not the sa950 is bc tigerdirect.com has them for 400$ instead of 550$ for the sa950 which has dual link DVI connection also.

As for Graphics I was looking at the 6970's but since those monitors are only 120Hz with Displayport I think i am stuck with this 6970 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121430 or this 6950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121431 unless I get differnt monitors bc from what I read on the AMD website is all the monitors for eyefinity have to be run from a single card. Is this true? This will be for gaming and I planned on doing Crossfirex with 2 cards now and a third down the line if I ended up needing it. Only problem is i can't do 3 of these beast on my MOBO I planned on getting. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

1. Get a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 board
2. You are overpaying on RAM
3. $1200 on monitors?
4. There is a deal at Tiger Direct for a Sapphire 6950 and 3 free games for $250

If you are going 8GB, select one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2%20x%204GB%29

Corsair Vengeance and G.Skill Sniper are good pairs. Also Corsair Dominator

I just find Gigabyte more reliable. Also if you want a UD3 or a UD7 they are available too. UD7 being top of the line.

The reason i was looking at the G.Skill I posted was the 6-8-6-24 timings. Most reviews I was able to find had ppl getting close to that at 1t. As for size anything above 8GB

One thing is that Asus boards have this really cool BIOS. Forgot what it was called but it was cool looking. Jus sayin. What will you be doing with this build?

It's mostly a gaming PC but i do some photo editing and HD movie editing. Games consist of things like Crysis, Crysis warhead, Crysis2, SCII, WOW, and have been looking at getting metro2033 and BF3.
It's called a UEFI BIOS. lets your mouse work in the BIOS

Thats it! Pretty neat. However I think you could really benefit from an i7 2600k build.
