RAM http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3V4G3D-US/dp/B00592002W times 2 (16gb for quad-channel)
Most components from Microdirect.co.uk
338
andd..you need a CPU..3930K http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Intel+Core+i7-3930K+3.20GHz+%28Sandy+Bridge-E%29+Socket+LGA2011+Processor+-+Retail+?productId=47178
and a Raystorm Kit or h100 ..for starters http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cooling/Water+Cooling/Corsair+H100+Water-Cooling+CPU+Cooler+?productId=44804
or just a Raystorm Block.and gpu blocks...and build a bong..
http://www.overclock.net/t/406256/the-official-bong-lovers-club-56k-fail/0_20

It's well under $2000 pounds
Watercooling can get very expensive..

This is a top-of-the line Platform
:doh.gif: i thought "rob" was the OP well..It might would be easier for you to get parts from UK?
nzitzer..where would you go to get computer parts?

i'll probably add another 7970 in a year or so, and the rest of the money will go back into my savings (and water cooling accessories biggrin.gif)

sorry for the confusion guys

an 850Watt power supply isn't enough to power 2 7970's in my opinion.... or at least not if its powering the rest of the pc as well wink.gif

I have some family in the US so i'm shipping it to their house and they'll bring it here when they'll come to visit tongue.gif

what do you think about the setup i posted?
post #35 of 94
if u are going with a single 7970 then go with the MSI factory overclocked 7970
here this one
if u can get it thumb.gif just a option
other then that find a PCIe3.0 motherboard like a
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 $121
and SSD to
Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive $90
other then that it looks good thumb.gif

it is clearly quoted in the article
Quote:
Measured power consumption for two cards in Crossfire

  1. System in IDLE = 166W
  2. System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 567W
  3. Difference (GPU load) = 401W
  4. Add average IDLE wattage ~6W
  5. Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 407 Watts
that means even if u clock the i5 to 4Ghz it takes around 120watts and the rest of the system 100watts or so
Total 787 watts

Hope it helped thumb.gif

that'll be a good way to get exactly what you want smile.gif

why are you getting a 500GB HD? I only ask because I got my 1TB Hitachi for £60ish in a sale tongue.gif and HD prices are high atm because of the flooding in urm taiwan? i think it is.

I dunno if a 750Watt will power 2 7970's (if your planning on buying a second in time)

what are you going to the CPU with???

and why buy an SSD when you already have an SSD???? smile.gif

also if your buying and sending it to family I'd check if they will be able to send it to you legally, there may be a problem in customs, when I tried buying a PSU from an american retailer it got stopped in customs once :\ (I know that sounds vague but my dad was sorting it so i don't know the full details) also it might be worth asking your family to put the parts together before it leaves the US (in case theres a problem with the components and leaving the US voids the components warranties)

I think the motherboard is lacking..and you could squeeze the x79 motherboard and 3930K into your budget

for that platform motherboard
I'd say p8p67 pro
or p8z68v-pro

NO agility ssd..ocz=bad..MMk? Crucial m4 or samsung 830 there..
other than than..pretty good! :thumb.gif
If you plan on adding another videocard later..you may want a bigger psu (1000w)
and..
you will need a cpu cooler

Depends what you are looking for, a big case to have really nice liquid cooling or a real simple case to have some mediocre liquid cooling.

Fractal design is a nice looking simple case.

cpu: i5 2500k
mobo: asus v pro
gpu: amd 7950
ram: mushkin enhanced blackline 2x4GB @ 1.5v 9-9-9-24
psu: depends what company you prefer.
the best is seasonic.
cooler master silent pro gold is also good.
corsair is also good
ssd: intel 320/520 depending on what you do. i would recommend 520
hdd: I would recommend you to wait for this to drop down, but if you can't then just get like a Hitachi or WD caviar blue.
the caviar blue series is the mainstream one

liquid cooling: RS360 or RS240 depending on what case you are getting.

All these are good parts. To be honest, i5 2500k is really good enough for everything unless youre doing something crazy, then get the i7 2600k or 2700k.

I know I haven't mentioned it but I'd recommend not getting a GPU atm simply because Nvidia may be bringing their new seriess of graphics card out.

that will not only give you more choice but will bring down prices.

I try not to mention it because people often say "don't wait theres no point rarr rarr rarr" ;p haha

I can't agree more. I would tell you to wait on a GPU too if you can. They say that the new lower end gpus such as the gtx 660 will be outperforming the gtx 580 which is a crazy deal.
It depends if you're an amd fan or nvidia fan. I personally go for the one that is best bang for the buck.
