Mobo/cpu/memory needed [gtx470sli] - Page 3

I had to +rep you, because you go out of your way to help and it shows!

I mean, you even searched up and linked hardware - thanks!

Well, maybe the extra $10 or so difference between 850 and 750 is worth the step up? Or wait... will this make my power bill go up, just because I went with a PSU that was a tad bit over-kill (or more than a tad)?

Tim, I really have no clue which motherboard to get.

Here are some Ripjaws X that match the blue heatsinks on P8P67/P8Z68 boards:

And then this one is out of stock because it's always in high demand:

Quality modular power supplies are no different from quality non-modular power supplies, so every modular PSU that is recommended here on OCN (by people who know what they're talking about) are just as good as non-modular ones.



The HX750 is a better purchase because it costs less than the HX850.


I Newegg still charges CA tax, but I don't know about TigerDirect.

Buy.com is selling it for $140.92 shipped.

You're very, very welcome.


A power supply is a supplier of power that has a certain capacity (or capability of power delivery). So it will always just deliver what the system wants to get from it.

However, then the efficiency comes into play. The less efficient a PSU is, the more power it has to pull from the wall in order to give the system what it wants because some of that power is lost as heat when it goes through the PSU. So if my PSU is pulling 500W from the wall and if it is 85% efficient, then that means my system is pulling 425W from the PSU. If I want to pull 425W from a PSU that is only 75% efficient (a crappy PSU), then that PSU would have to pull about 567W from the wall just to deliver that 425W.

So overkill or not, the power draw is usually about the same unless using a very inefficient PSU.

For the motherboard: to stick to a nice blue and white theme and for some good overclocking, I think the P8P67 Pro is a very good one.

I just can't imagine what the difference would be between the pros and deludes, and between the P8P67s and P8Z68s :\\

As far as I know, the P8P67 Deluxe is better suited for people who want to do very extreme overclocking where they might need sub-zero cooling. I don't know if it's the same with the P8Z68 Deluxe.

As far as P67 vs. Z68: I think the only real differences are like "Virtu" (not exactly sure how to describe it) and SSD Caching, or "Smart Response Technology".

I'll go with the z68 for the SSD caching, not sure if I'll use it - but that's OK.


I suppose I'm ready to start purchasing Spending $1,000 to play Battlefield 3 is starting to seem very stupid... very stupid. Gotta pay to play, but I'd rather put the money towards a BMW! Why am I so indecisive!!!!!!!


I totally forgot! I can sell my CPU+H50/MOBO/MEMORY. I just need to find out how much I'd get offered for it all.
