The store has only the ENGTX560 DC/2DI/1GD5 which has only one fan and i have not read any reviews about it. The GTX560 DirectCU II model is what i was looking for. But is not available. What can I do? Wait for DirectCU II or go with the ordinary one?

So, I have confirmed the order of mobo with the deluxe model (though i have 10 hrs to change my decision) and would like to know if the onboard graphics in v-pro gives any advantage over deluxe.

Also what is the difference between Asus GTX 560 (non-ti) direct cu II and Asus GTX 560 (non-ti) direct cu (with one fan)?

At last I have purchased almost all components required for my rig.

  • Asus P8Z68 Deluxe Gen3
  • Intel i5 2500k
  • Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
  • Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus
  • Asus GeForce 560 Ti Direct CU II (not OC edition)
  • Dell U2312HM Monitor
  • Seagate 1 TB single-platter Barracuda 7200.12 HDD
  • Sony DVD-RW
  • Seasonic S12II 620W PSU
  • 3 x 120 mm Case Fans

Regarding RAM, the store has only 2 separate 4GB G.Skill Sniper memories in stock. They do not have 2x4GB kits. They claim that both are same and two of single 4GB memory can still provide Dual Channel Memory. I did some research and believe that I have a 50% chance that the separate sticks will work together. Is it worth taking the risk because the people at the store claim that both memory has same part number? Or shall I insist that I need a 2x4GB kit?


Also, is the 620w PSU safe for my rig?

You don't really need +600w for a single 560 maybe if you want to SLI in the future but I would say a 500w

i always get higher-bandwidth RAM
4 gb sticks are best atm
Sandy bridge runs 2133 RAM very well thumb.gif
There's no divider for 1800,1866, or 2000 though
Keep that in mind

Bigger psu=room for expansion/upgrading

Yeah, I aam after the dual channel RAM configuration. The vendor says 2x4GB RAM kits are out of stock and he is not giving an ETA. Instead he is offering me to buy 2 separate 4GB sticks and claims that it will work in dual mode. Is this true? Upon doing a little research, I found that it is a 50-50 chance of getting separate slots to work in dual channel conifg.

You do realize that with a 500w power supply there is a decent chance that the psu will fail and destroy his hardware right? I run a very similar system on a 650w

It's fine to OC the CPU to somewhere around 4 GHz and GPU around 860MHz using ~600W right?

Oh no frown.gif hmm... then maybe will upgrade the PSU later after some 2 years when i'll be extensively using it...and use the current one for some other computer which i'll be buying soon....

can i atleast OC only the CPU or GPU (not both)? what is the safe limit with this PSU?
