Building a new rig - which GPU would best complement it? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Zotac is nothing particularly special. For $1000 that is a solid build.

Would you recommend jumping it up to a EVGA or something? Or any manufacture in particular, at that?

Actually scratch that, I picked a combo with the processor and EVGA 570 and it ends up being cheaper, final build:

ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Western Digital Caviar Green WD7500AARX 750GB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA 012-P3-1571-KR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

Totaling $1,024.17 with shipping, and $989.17 after the rebates.

Thats a very good build. Sell your current stuff and pick up an SSD off the marketplace here, they can be had for great prices. I could never go back to booting off of a HDD, even 3x 1TB in RAID 0 seems anemic compared to my old SATA II SSD, let alone the newer models.
