Gaming rig. What ya guys think? - Page 2

post #11 of 110
For gaming I'd recommend
Reducing RAM to 16GB
Getting something like an AX850 or Seasonic Platinum 860w instead of a 1000w PSU
And for your motherboard this should fit your red and black looking desires http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188120

That's a EATX motherboard though, so you'd have to make sure your case could fit it. Plus, active cooling? Blah.

Will 850w be enough for 2-3 way SLI?
And since every is saying that 32gb of RAM is over kill. Is there a problem with me going to 16gb but getting a faster speed?

The Fatality series does have a certain look to it, you either love it or hate it. However it's a great performer. It's really your money, if you want the ASUS go with the ASUS. Just you go with the ASRock you can put the money in other areas. Same with going with the 3570K, 8 or 16gb of ram and smaller PSU. You can take that money and grab another 840 SSD and make it a games drive. Then you'll have an OS/Programs drive, Games drive, and storage drive. You can even invest some more money in your loop. It's really up to.

Yes, it can fit E-ATX.

Well you won't experience much speed over 1600mhz. Save your cash, you can spend it on games.
IMO I don't think you'll need three way SLI. I used to think about getting a bigger PSU and in the future getting SLI Graphics Cards. That never happened. Besides, 2 Way SLI is way more than enough for the average gamer. An AX850 Should be able to run SLI 680's

His case is a switch 810 which can easily accommodate an E-ATX board

I would stay away from EVGA motherboards. They make good video cards. That's about it.

Is there any mainstream gaming rig that can ACTUALLY consume 1000 watts of power?

It baffles me how components are being designed to use less and less power, and people still buy these PSUs.

And yeah, 32gb of ram is only useful for some pretty hardcore video editing, rendering, stuff like that...stick with 8 or 16, but I'd say 8 is a good minimum now.

I hear this is a pretty good motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130660
And it comes free with 8GB of G.Skill Ripjaws to help your red theme and then you can spend less on ram

Yea was looking at that board before. I could just have my theme as black and white(case fans) and the only other color would be the yellow on the mother board.
I'd just sell the RAM to a buddy haha
