When I bought my new z77 I made sure I could rma for 5yrs at scan uk. I'll never have to contact asus for the next 5yrs. That's what I want.

What annoys me is that I paid a premium for the look and name. The performance has been adequate, nothing amazing. More so, the bios is nice, but I don't go in the bios every day. As long as one can get used to the bios of any motherboard, then that's enough.


Your mistake is/was buying from Scan, not from buying Asus.
I live a few miles down the road from Scan and I would never buy anything from them, they are notoriously bad and have a terrible reputation when it comes to taking broken hardware back not to mention all the other dodgy dealings they get up to, take a look at their "Scansure" deal they have going, your basically paying for your statutory rights if you decide to take it out. That alone is a big enough reason why you should avoid them like the plague...

Naw, almost nobody will ever need that much power. You can comfortably run 2 GTX 690's on a quality 850W PSU.

Dunno about that, 2 x 680s with a 5Ghz cpu can pull 1000w, little bit of voltage to the gpus can pull a lot of watts. Not talking frozen with high volts, air cooled with less than 100mV added.

Stickg1,
Sorry, my fault for not being clear. I have my signature rig that is a month old and I will be keeping. I am also using a several year old computer as my second one, it is not listed here anywhere. When I ended up delidding two 3770k I thought I would just sell it, but then I realized you need 35 rep, and after spending a few days answering a lot of new members posts and getting zero rep, I figured I would build a second system. I will give the several year old system to my kids, then I will have my sig rig, and this new build, so two rigs very similar to each other.
yea that is pretty crazy for cards but dam i want two lol. i plan on adding another 670ftw to my rig but i want one that can overclock over 1300mhz/3600mhz to match my current 1 biggrin.gif

I put it in a spoiler in case someone doesn't want to read through it, but I would very much appreciate any help. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hey you clicked to look! Thanks.smile.gif

I should make a thread for this at some point, but since you guys are so experienced I would appreciate any input on it. Since I can't sell my fist delidded 3770k I figured I would just build another system and give the old one I am using now to the kids. I always have two computers, just in case something goes wrong. You can see my current specs in my signature rig, and with this one I figured I would do a few upgrades. I am not really trying to stay in any specific budget, just get a nice system for a reasonable price, but at this point I have a litte more money than time. Anything that saves me time is a good thing.

Anything I should change?

What I already have:
CPU: 3770k overclocked, delidded, lapped

Thinking about:
Case:
NZXT Switch 810 (I was told this is a good choice for two radiators for the H220)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146089

Cooling:
Swiftech H220, (plan on adding a second radiator to cool the GPU as well)
http://www.swiftech.com/H220.aspx

SSD:
Crucial M4 256gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-148-443
or possibly
Samsung 840 pro 256gb (seems faster, but I don't know if it is more reliable or not)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147193

HDD:
Just for backups, extra storage:
Western Digital Black 7200rpm 1tb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533

Video card: (this is something I am really not sure about)
I know most here think AMD>Nvidia, but I already have a EVGA GTX 670, so I am very inclined to go with another EVGA simply to save time when updating drivers, looking for tech support, warranty, RMA etc. It will definitely be more work for me to have Nvidia in one system and AMD in the other.
The one thing I know for sure is that I want to cool this GPU with the Swiftech H220, and I know nothing about that so I need a card that can be water-cooled without too much trouble. Will be gaming on either 2560x1600 or possibly 3 monitor surround at 1920x1200 for each of the 3.
With that in mind:
EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130787
or more $
EVGA GTX 670 4gb FTW+
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130824
or even more $$
EVGA GTX 680 4gb FTW+ w/backplate
or $$$
EVGA GTX 680 4gb Classified
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130801

PSU
Corsair AX850 (I think it is more than I need now, but not sure what else I will add later)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015&Tpk=ax850

Memory:
G.Skill Trident X 2x8gb, 2400, 10-12-12-31
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231589

Motherboard:
I have a Maximus V Formula, which I am happy with so far. I have heard good things about Gigabyte but then I would have to learn a whole new BIOS, which doesn't seem worth the time unless I am missing something.
Asus ROG MVF
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131854
or save some $
Asus ROG Maximus V Gene
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131830
This is a smaller board which I would put in my old case and move the MVF to the new case, if I go that way.

If you have made it this far, your help is very much appreciated. Thank you!!

I keep hearing the Titan is going to cost $1200, anyone got any proof or anything like that? Should I go for a 700-series card or buy a 600-series card when it goes down a bit after the release of the new line?

Unless you have a SB-E CPU pulling ridiculous power from the wall, I don't see how 2 680's with only a 100mV offset and a CPU at 5GHz could ever add up to 1kW.

GRRRRR! I just learned that this iGPU has problems, waaay too many problems. The iGPU keeps on crashing during gaming and it's getting annoying!

Well when it came to the RMA of my RAM - they were very efficient and very fast in the turn-around.
I'm glad I bought from Scan - great tech support, and more so great customer service.
I won't accept them refusing the RMA for my sabertooth, but I would accept them refusing the RMA of my Antec 920 for example.

It is ironic that the only parts that have gone "bad" are the ones that I bought from Scan - but that's EXACTLY the reason WHY I chose to buy it from them.
If something goes wrong - I have someone to go to, for X amount of years.

List of things I got from Scan:
-Board -> due to them honouring 5years warranty
-RAM -> due to them honouring the full warranty
-PSU
-Cooler

Things I got from Amazon (things that are known to be 100% fine no matter how you look at it):
-CPU
-Screen
-Fans

Other parts that I got from OCUK:
-Fans
-GPU
-Dust cover
-Mouse mat

I chose selectively and even at times paid a little premium to go with the sellers I went for.
