$2000 gaming computer help - Page 4

post #31 of 53
Thread Starter 
It is hard to find an 850W power supply with enough PCI-Express Connectors, for tri-SLI GTX 680s, for a good price.
I found only one on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817116016
What do you think of this power supply?
How does it stack up against the one I had chosen?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703028

I personally had the White 500r with the Corsair 1050w PSU that was recommended and loved them both. The HX1050 is semi-modular so you can get really nice cable management very easily.
I figure be safe than sorry and get the HX1050. I'm constantly upgrading my computer and adding new components so I'm happy I have a buffer for all my needs.
Good looking build though! thumb.gif
I was deciding between the 2600k and the 3820 and went with the 3820 so I could run 32gb of RAM at 2133 biggrin.gif It's a great processor though, good choice!

Motherboard: I want the ability to tri-sli GTX 680s as well as upgrade the RAM to 32GB. Also, because I want the ability to upgrade to the next gen processors I need a LGA2011 socket.
Memory: I found faster RAM, 2133, for about the same price. Also, the i5-2500k only supports up to DDR3 1333.
Hard Drive: I want to be able to run everything off of the SSD and just store all of my media on my 2TB external.
Case: I have been told that in order to tri-sli GTX 680s I'd need 8 expansion slots in the case. and for about the same price I found a case to handle that.
Monitor: Good find on the monitor, I'll keep that in mind.
Keyboard: People seem quite averse to non-mechanical keyboards for gaming.
All in all though it's definitely a good rig, I'm just a bit picky.

Your build is aimed primarily for gaming correct? Just i'm not sure why your going X79 and throwing a Quad Core in there. Personally X79 is a waste unless it's powered by a 3930K at the minimum, but that's my opinion. And it's not a platform you put together for gaming, unless you have money coming out of your ears, or are out for epeen go Z77.

If i was you i would re-evaluate and go with a Z77 board and IB. It's ideal for gaming and saves you some cash for other components.

Unless IB-E is something your expecting to upgrade too in the future, the 3820 is a wise move for the time being.

Mhill2029, I saw your coming soon PC build and I had a couple questions. Firstly, I see that your tower only has 7 expansion slots and you want to tri-SLI GTX 680s. I have been told that you would need 8 expansion slots to do that. Do you know if that's true or not? Secondly, why that motherboard? There are cheaper motherboards that can handle what your getting, such as this one: ASUS P9X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79.

In relation to your post; the i7-3820 is an IB-E processor, so I am confused by what you mean.

General question: does any know what socket ivy bridge processors use?

Ivy bridge sucks at overclocking compared to sandy bridge,they also run hotter.
They use lga1155 socket.
Since you wanna go tri sli get the setup I suggested.
Pick up the cm storm trooper from newegg at a great price.
I suggested you two cooler but it would be best if you can pick up a corsair H100.

Check the price of these two amazing product.
16gb gskill ares 1866mhz

ivy would use socket 115 which the current SB is using for more detail have a look HERE

here are a few links

Oh i'm not going with the 800D, i'm still in the debating stage regarding case, memory and monitors. The motherboard is the one i'm most definately going for since i might even dabble in Quad SLI which this board is ideally suited for. Yes i'm crazy i know lol biggrin.gif

Regards to the 3820; i meant that if you were going to upgrade to IB-E in the future, the 3820 would be an ideal temp chip to use, rather than forking out for the 3930K.

IB-E will be socket 2011 and most likely have 8 core CPU's.
IB will be 1155 and will consist of a max of quad core CPU's for the mainstream market.

But in your situation you are mostly a gamer, and i would think that SB, or IB on 1155 would be more feasible.

The reviews I saw on this NZXT Hale are very good. It competes with the AX series from Corsair(best series from them).

I am not sure about the PC Power Cooling one, I actually have only heard of them like once before.. reviews on Newegg look promising though..
