New gaming rig, need part recommendations - Page 8

post #71 of 90
If you want BF, get a i5 2500k, a decent Overclocking motherboard, some cheap (vengeance) RAM, and focus on graphic cards. that would be the main perfomance point.

Price : performance I'd say that those low-voltage 1600 CL9 sticks or the 1333 CL 7 sticks are both solid options, but it's only an extra $15 for the 1600 CL8s. I'm not sure if the difference is noticeable or not though.

Intel recommends 1.5V RAM on SandyBridge setups with a +/- 5% margin of error, which puts the maximum at 1.575V. You could put 1.65V DIMMs into your SandyBridge board but you'd have to watch your voltages and make sure that your motherboard isn't trying to go over 1.6V or bad things could happen. The low end of that is 1.425V but it's not hurting anything to have 1.35V DIMMS in your SandyBridge board even though they're below spec.

Not entirely true. Yes, the Intel Spec calls for 1.5+/-5%, but many users here have their memory running at 1.65V with no ill effects. Intel's spec is to ensure that the processor will work for many, many years without any ill effects. It's the same for Vcore and PLL, but most overclockers ignore those specs as well.

Sweet, the SSD I had picked out is on sale for $120. Do you guys think this is a good choice for an SSD at this price? If so I'm gonna buy it right away.

tough call. you'd HAVE to purchase it TODAY to qualify for the rebate, yet the real sales are for black friday and cyber monday. Look for rebates that don't expire till the end of the month.

personally i'd go with this one: OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) it's slightly slower, but with $30 extra dollars you get 30GB. + the rebate doesn't expire until the end of the month so it has the potential to go even further down in price w black friday & cyber monday coming up

Eh, That more than I want to spend. If there's nothing wrong with the Corsair one I wanna grab it today. Do you think I should do it?
