Brand-spanking new PC build [i7 2700k] - Page 2

post #11 of 37
I think you should go for a Z68 mobo? You could also go for a different SSD such as the Mushkin Chronos.

I would go with a 580 or 2 x 570's.

590s having nothing but issues.

Here are the changes I would make:

Processor:2600K
RAM: I have not checked into prices, but 1600 will be just fine
SSD: Crucial M4 128GB
GPU: GTX 580 for now, SLI down the road, unless you really think you need the power a 580 can provide. Maybe look into crossfiring dual 6970s also.
post #14 of 37
I'll play, most definitely get a 2600k and OC it 100mhz or even more. I'd also say go for 580gtx and add one in the future.

Take a close look at this Asrock motherboard:

Or this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157264

Some haven't heard much about Asrock. I'm an Asus fan that decided to try some Asrock boards for customers earlier this year. They've been so nice compared to a few Asus p8p67pro and a pair of sabertooth boards with weird sata issues involving SSDs. Anyways Asus took the best care of me of course, but I now consider Asrock a strong contender in enthusiast boards for sure. I just built one this week with the fatality board in the first link. It's solid and well built. Everything went on without a hitch including mushkin chronos SSD. Owner has been BF3'ing it non-stop, board is pushing one gtx580.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've actually looked at a fractal, but the one I looked at didn't have a USB 3 output, so I disregarded them. I'll look again

Using the 580 with the ax850 would give you the chance to go sli in future as well, with 590's you would be really pushing the psu if able to do it at all.
Second. Get a crucial m4, I went with ocz and regret it, after two months I've got an m4 on the way and I'm swapping them out.
Third. What do you want the hdds for? Just storage or are things like games going to be on it as well?
Last. Maybe got for some corsair vengeance ram instead, 1600mhz and you won't notice a real performance difference and you'll save a few bucks to put elsewhere
1. Thought about the 580, but in the reviews I read the 590 was scoring way above so that's why i opted for it. SLI with 580's could be cool too though. Question: 580's in SLI would consume more power than one 590, right?

2. Why crucial m4 over OCZ? What exactly didn't you like about it?

3. HDDs will be for storage and games. SSD will be for OS and the likes.

4. Corsair Vengeance RAM noted.

This man has no idea of what the Lian-Li goodness is about: aluminum, almost hand-crafted case, attention to details.

Don't recommend Fractal Design over Lian-Li, OP has some good tastes.
Thanks, but all advice is appreciated.

if it's in the budget i'd just get 2 580s over a single 590..
Alright, so crucial m4 seems to be the consensus. Would like to know why I should stay away from OCZ though.

Beats me. As I said, i'm not a techy. Good point though.

crucial M4 128gb SSD as its sata 3 6gb/s

id go 2600k i7 theres 100mhz difference just OC it and be done with it! mines at 4,4giggaherts

apart from that oh get an NZXT M59 and replace the case fan with a noctua one job done.

good build! get up some pics when you get it!
Thanks. However, the NZXT M59 is way too flashy for me. I don't need transparent cases or anything that zig-zags. Just plain ole black/grey that's quiet and neutral.

It's either 590 or 580 for me, but more what's way more interesting: Nothing but issues with the 590?? What have you heard? Link me please, if you can.

Thanks for the suggestion, and yeah I know about the petty 100 mhz more on the 2700k. But I figure, since I'm already doing all of this I may as well. Where I live it's just around $20 more, so I'll cope.

So far, thanks alot to those who replied. More are welcome

Hey man, thanks for chiming in.

I appreciate the advice, but in the past i've had 2 Asrock mobos and they have both been utter crap. I realize it's been years and they are most likely the shiiat these days, but as long as Asus continues to make great mobos, i'll stick with them smile.gif

The Z68 can do both on-board and discrete (such as a GTX 580). The benefit is that if you ever want to use the video chip on your CPU, with the Z68 you can and with a P67, you can't.
