Will new build work? - Page 3

post #21 of 78
One thing, that PSU is overkill. Even if you go crossfire you'll still only need a 750W, also go for a different brand such as corsair or seasonic smile.gif

What would be the best PSU wattage for this system? Keeping in mind that there is a slight change that I want to expand my pc to Crossfire configuration.
Thanks

Samsung are better than crucial but the price are upper tongue.gif

Hmm, with PSU maybe Corsair HX750 or AX750 thumb.gif

Most people here will prefer the Samsung 830 over the Crucial M4; people say it's slightly faster although keep in mind that's in benchmarks. You probably won't notice a big performance difference in real life scenarios. Both are great and stable SSDs. I think they are around the same price, but if not get the cheaper one.

As for PSU, Corsair or Seasonic are both great. 750 Watt is what you need for overclocking and for an additional card in the future, although even this offers you enough headroom. Corsair Professional series or Seasonic X-Series.

(off topic of the thread, I know..) personally would recommend the 7950 or 7970 if you can afford them. Just food for thought!

Agreed on the PSU. You don't really need more than a 750W unless you are going to go crazy with the accessories(8+HDD, multi-pump water cooling system, lots of lights, etc). If you are able to drop the extra money, I would strongly recommend trying to get a PSU with a gold rating. If you are worried about the electrical bills, that feature will pay for it's self in short order =]

i hope to see how the build goes!

Will I really see a major difference if I'm going with a 7950 card? I'm sure I won't get a 7970, because that's out of my budget. I'm planning on working with photoshop, Cinema 4D and After Afects. Maybe a little gaming... You think the 7870 hawk isn't powerfull enough for that?
For the PSU I'll go for the HX 750w, that seems to be a better option.

But for the SSD, As I looked up the Samsung and the Crucial, numbers are telling me the OCZ Agility 3 has faster write- and reading speeds. Are those numbers just irrellevant? and are Samsung and Crucial just better brands?

Thanks Guys!thumb.gif

I think 7870 is powerful enough, I own that and it's amazing card

Here is a difference between 7870 and 7950: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=550

PS: You can overclock 7870 that can pass the performance of a 7950
Edit: 7870 hawk overclocked results: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/HD_7870_HAWK/31.html

Now SSDs:
Crucial M4 vs OCZ Agility 3: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/425?vs=371
Crucial M4 vs Samsung 830: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/425?vs=533

Thanks! I'll go for the 7870 hawk, I just hope it's enough for cinema 4d and adobe cs6 stuff... For the SSD, the benchmarks are clear, and Samsung comes out as best! Luckily I found a cheap store, and the Samsung is not that more expensive compared to the OCZ agillity...
Edit: those benchmarks are for the standard 7870, I'll go with a 7870 hawk, and I'm expecting that it wil run faster and better than the stock version. So maybe that will also give me some better performance and the twincooler 4 should give me some OC headroom either.

Is there anyone who has some experience with the Zalman Z11 case?? The reviews aren't making me any wiser either.

As for the PSU, also a PSU-calculator tells me 850 watt is overkill, so I'll go with the HX 750 Watt corsair, since that one is cheaper than the Seasonic x-series. When I have my parts and start building I'll post some pictures!

I'm very curious how fast that computer will be when it's overclocked and running on Windows 8!

The 830 series drives blow the Agility 3 series drives away in most comparisons. Don't look at the "max speed" ratings, as OCZ tends to just list maximum theoretical peaks of the SATA bridge for all of their SSDs. The actual drive performance is typically far different from that.

Don't go any smaller than a 120GB SSD, it's pointless both from a value perspective, and usability perspective.


A 650-750W PSU is going to be fine here. Look at Rosewil Capstone and Fortress series (Superflower and ATNG units sold under the Rosewill brand) if you want to save a few bucks. These are well done units.

Samsung kills Agility easily

Yea, hawk version have a small overclock and with twincooler 4 it will be cool and quiet thumb.gif

With PSU Calc you need +- 685 watts, so you will be more than fine with HX750.

With that build? It will be fast and furious tongue.gif

I have both the Agility 3 and Samsung 830 in my computer. The Samsung is definitely faster. The Agility 3 is just a 60gb for Windows only, it is still pretty fast.
By the way, make sure to check the measurements of the Noctua cooler to make sure it will fit okay in the case. It is pretty large. But very bad ass wink.gif
