So get a good Mobo. Like my asus.
I would say Good power(aka psu) Like Ax 850 Watts. Like gold rating 850 or the new platinum 850 watts.
New cooler. Mega, Venx, dh-14 Ect.... Or go water if you want to . 1366 is same size as 2011 pin Just different way to mount.
win 7 64 bit Retail Upgrade. ~ $120 , Just install it and don't enter key. After boot up into win 7 Click update button On win 7 disk . click update install Then enter key and good to go.
Get ram. I was going to get this, Link to 1866Mhz cas 9
Lifetime warranty. Work with x58 1366 and SB 1155 and x79 2011 Just get 3 sets or 4 for z79 and you got 24 Gb ram (Or 36
) (Don't know if 3 sets of duel channel ram can work on the x58 tri channel setup or x78 Quad channel ram.)
I have 4 gb in system now, 2 stick of old ram died, have 2 stick of 1333 mhz ram and cpu stock
. I fell pc studded more in bf3 with 4 gb compared to 6Gb. So next system 8 dims @ 2 gb each 16 GB
Ram, Hope to make 64 gb Ram drive
Any woot 1155 is not to much faster then x58, an 2011 is just to much $$$ and i want more from pci-3.0 for 2 years in the road with multiple-core gpus and High res and think of it this way. get New ram, Get new psu , Heck as X79 meets Most ppl on here(its out get it i need 6 core x58), You could Pick up a I7 x58 cpu 970 on here for $300-$400 970, 6 core chip. $549 on the egg.
lower heat an better overclocks and small die then 920-950s. Closer to SB,but 6 cores.New chips are $599 2011 pin And good mobo for x79 $379
. And @ 5gh Nothing to shy about, but so is x58 and 2 580Gtx sli Meet bf3 and 120fps. But you can turn off Ht on chip will help in temps. Depends on what you do with Chip, Encoding editing ect...Get 2011 or wait for z79 Ivy on 2011 full usage.
Biggest thing to pc Was SSD.
C300 m4 are good an intels SSD. No ocz ssds Bad,,,, very bad.
made pc Snappy, Click app. and the sound of the click of mouse hits your ear app is loaded. Ok depends on app but you know what i mean. ALot faster.
X58 build. Mobo used here $150 , Ram $40-$80
Z68 Build Mobo $124 , Cpu $170 (2500k), ram $64
X79 Build Mobo $379 ,Cpu $599, Ram $80+ depends on what you want.
And $150-$200 for new psu , or used one. 850watts +
Depends on what you want to spend.Edited by GfhTattoo - 11/16/11 at 11:31pm
