My new sig rig is completed (2012), review my rig

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got this which allows me to keep my 500 GB IDE drive as a secondary drive

http://www.vantecusa.com/gl/product/view_detail/263

At the end of the build

MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 to ASUS P8H67M-LE
Q9550S to I5 2310
4 gb ddr2 dual to PNY Yellow Optima 8 gb ddr3 dual
ASUS ENGTX 285 TOP to GTX 560 TI Twin Froz II
Earthwatts 500 to Rocketfish/Best Buy/Huntkey 900
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 2009 to SP1 2012
boot drive WD 500 GB to OCZ Vertex 2 120 GB SSD
same case as before

the beauty of this is I can keep this mobo even longer than the 27+ months I did for my former rig. The Sandy Bridge I5 allows me to stay away from a first gen I7 but still beating it in everyday computing and gaming. The first I7 for me will come as an Ivy Bridge which the mobo can support with a bios upgrade.


My rig will rock GTA 5 and Guild Wars 2. I may even try Alan Wake on this baby now.

It's finished already. I'm using it right now.

Though the few things i'm looking for is basically a new cooler from stock.. I'm likely to keep that stock cooler and save the fresh cooler for the time when I put an Ivy I7 in my mobo.

I also have an open PCIE 4x slot. Even though i have no plans on SLIi'ng my Twin Froz card, how do graphics cards perform on a 4x slot? Any speed or usability difference?

Not that I would SLI because I'm just a 1 card PC gamer, but just wondering if anyone wih personal experience trying a card on an x4 to sli?

It's much more likely i'll fill that PCIE x4 with the Hauppauge Colossus to do HDTV/DVR recording and encoding, which is my other big CPU/GPU usage
