NEW GAMING PC BUILD!.....some HELP? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
Thanks a lot for the advice guys but as I said I live in Dubai (boo again) thus most cases etc not available. But my microcenter seems to be a fan of cm do they might have 212 ( enough for 4.5 no more?) 932 is the best case available xD
Is 6950 cf as good as 6990
Even I have yet too see pes or FIFA in eyefinity
Good, ok cheap 1080 p monitors? Or 3 year old hd ready tv??

A quality 650w PSU is fine, but if you're gonna be overclocking the i5 2500K high, and overclocking those cards, then go with a 750w PSU.

Also, for the price of an HD 6990, you can afford two HD 6970 2GB. Go with a couple of those, instead.

Ya, the cooler master cases would be ok if they actually went through the case and added dust filters as need with a high air flow case. That is what really turned me off of them and that is why i went with the 600T, its amazing how much dust actually does collect on the filters

Guys very less things are available in Dubai . I can't afford a 6990 . Is hyper 212 any good?
post #19 of 20

H60 in Dubai sells for 200$ no joke
post #20 of 20
NIK, A hyper 212+ is indded enough for a decent oc. I know in dubai it gets hot in the summer, so you might suffer from high temps. But it will be fine. And yes alot of things are overpriced in the middle east. But isnt there centers around you that specializes in pc? Golden center i think is the name.

Anyway get 2x 6950s they are almsot same price, also since your getting 2 cards, you can go nvidia and do surround.

3 new lcds >.> forget old HD ready ones.

Just make sure you make the case clean, and manage th wires and you will be fine. What brand are the 6950s?
