Because the 7950 is more powerful than the 660

That was with the old drivers, with the newer ones it's miles better.

Hi,

I viewed the website.
I am enquiring about the Top version of it.

What are your views on Asus gtx 660 ti top and Asus 7959 ti top?

Gear mentioned in this thread:

When I viewed the g.skill website of those 2 models, it does not shows that it is compatible with Asus Maximus V extreme.

But the product is trident. It is twice the price.

Currently, I am intending to buy G.skill 1600 Mhz Cl7. But when I see asus maximus v extreme is not the supporting motherboards.

Another one I am considering is G.skill 2133 Mhz Cl9.

Hence, I need advices.

.......................you seem to be missing the whole point.

First you need to understand that you will see NO performance gain by using faster ram. Other than in benchmarks and in VERY HIGH end video video editing. If you aren't doing either of those things, than there is zero reason to spend more money on ram.

This is where there seems to be confusion. You have two options that are at the same time reasonably intelligent. One option is to go for performance AND looks (looks will offset the price) and go with the gskill trident x memory. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231587&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA at 2400mhz you get your performance AND looks smile.gif

If you want to save money, and still get high performance, get the samsung ram. You can OC it to 2400mhz or 1600mhz with very low timings for half the price of the trident memory.

Before you buy your whole rig I highly suggest you do some more research on the basics on computer parts because you are quiet misinformed and the last thing you want is to regret a hefty purchase.

Sorry if I'm wrong, but this is what I am assuming from your budgeting and understanding of how RAM works.

Ill try my best to sum up some of the answers for you.

1) MVE is overpriced (I know I have one and am under 24/7 subzero) basically just buy a cheaper motherboard because you pay a ridiculous premium on this board because its so niche marketed. Half the features on this board are all about subzero and my guesses are that if you dont know too much about RAM your probably not going subzero. The extra 100$ is better spent on cooling or perhaps an SSD if that already isnt in the plans.

2)RAM is almost always compatible with any board so long as its DDR3 and your board uses DDR3 regardless of what the confirmed compatible list may say. Even 1.5v or 1.65v doesn't really matter in terms of compatibility as long as you adjust the bios voltage accordingly.

3)660 TOP and 7950 TOP performance is easily distinguished by looking and some benchmarks. After benchmarks just decide whether you want Nvidia or AMD.

*personal opinion 3770k + MVE with a 660 or 7950 is ludicrous pairing. I cant stress this enough save your money on the mobo or even the CPU to a 3750k and upgrade w/e e.g. cooling, audio, monitor, ssd, aesthetics, peripherals or donate it to charity.

I agree. The only reason you should be getting half these components is if you are a pure benchmark money and you want a cheaper GPU for an eventual 4 way SLI.

If that is not your goal, and you are just a gamer, then you need to go with like a gigabyte UD3H, a i5 3570K, some cheap samsung ram, and a AMD 7970 or GTX 680 and a good SSD.
