Gaming rig. What ya guys think? - Page 11

Soo back to the ASRock Z77 Professional (fatality) motherboard. Is this a good mother board for over clocking and dual gpu setups?

As a rule of thumb, you want to look for the power phase design.

You wont have any issues with this board.

Also, make sure to read the negative reviews that people leaved on newegg. They will give you a good idea about what kind of flaws to expect.

You could, but the actual hardware is way ahead of the softwares, mostly because the current generation of consoles is so far behind.

I'm still using a 1090t, and my best friend is still using an i7-930, and there is absolutely no games out there that we cant play with max settings.
I know that my CPU is a bottleneck in the 60-90 fps area but, to be honest, It's really not bothering me.

I'm also getting a nice PPD thumb.gif

Just keep in mind that Avago is manufacturing the sensor found in most razer mices, but also in logitech's, roccat's, steelseries', mionix's... thumb.gif
As for the switches, they are made by Omron, which, again, are used as a standard in most gaming mices, not really for their reliability, but for their crisp click and fast response. You cant really blame razer if those parts fail. redface.gif
Your MMO7 mice use another sensor, the PTE, made by Phillips. It feature good tracking, but have the z-axis issue, that you probably noticed, and is quite sensitive to vibrations. The switches are also Omrons.
And I agree that mices in general (not just razer TBH) are overpriced.
Yeah, I used to have problems with the lazer (lots of cat hair on my old mousepad (I have a new one now), I simply put a piece of plastic on the bottom of the mouse and now I have no more problems

I would also take a look at the ASRock z77 OC formula, especially with the 3570K. I love mine.

Also, on all this discussion about razor products, I've had a razer Naga that I've carried around in my school backpack for about a year now. It's been treated pretty roughly and still works like champ. Same goes for my Carcharias headset. So, while I can't speak for the rest of their products, my experience has been pretty positive thus far. I would say overpriced, but I got them for way cheaper than normal.

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.

also can be used in Ram disk and Ram cache witch i suggest him doing biggrin.gif for example get ur In ternal HD caching on the 16gb of ram with speed of 1866 will make ur Hard disk flaying opening the files and copy paste faster then the SSD

so if u want to live that experience go ahead, on the otherhand i7 3770k is good for overclocking and folding ofc so go for it way better scores then i5 ,my suggestion go for maximus V formulla unless u wana be Extreme then go for the extreme and do the ram caching with half of the memory 16gb- leave the otehr 16gb for system

for that ram speed thing most of ppl are wrong 1600 mhz is the max for windows index to utilize if u go and do perfomance check for windows and get score 7.9 with 1600 mhz aanything more wont give u better windows experience but in softwares its different story and this guy he said extreme and custom water cooling he is not doing it for use or need only he like the stuff as a hobby want to get high scores and benchmarks etc.. with love to fold am i right ?

for monitor i say go with asus latest monitor 1440 hz amazing smoothness when i saw it i was like omg super smooth
