in our country - i7 2700k is pretty low atm on price (2600k cost more smile.gif ) and i dunno about MB - FYI I am not going SLI / CF so it can be board with single PCIE slot...
thanks

if you want to buy now sell the GTX 580. get a HD 7950 boost and overclock it to 1.1 Ghz to match HD 7970 Ghz performance. you won't spend a lot and you will notice a significant improvement. thumb.gif also try and push your CPU to 4 Ghz if you can.

3.7 Ghz phenom ii x4 is enough to drive a single high end GPU like HD 7950 boost. Most games at max settings are entirely GPU limited. so don't worry.

For now i would just get a SSD and put the operating system there, later when the new graphics card come out i upgrade the motherboard and cpu and a heatsink all at the same time
post #16 of 24
I would have thought that a clocked 580 could manage 1080P in most situations....

SSD for now.

hmm never realy though about ssd before but now it makes kind of sense...

anyway i am still on the edge: with i7 2700k / 3770k games like skyrim will be so much smoother even with my 580 gtx...

any tips on that topic. i mean am I right that skyrim is still cpu dependant ?

also what ssd would you sugest ?

i mean that i wouldnt have to buy next one for some time (performance wise)

thanks

you got a budget for SSD?

i would avoid any of the older OCZ SSDs, and im not sure about the new ones. People seem to rate the Crucial M4 around here.

no budget at all but i dont want something like revodrive etc. (not so rich smile.gif )

i found interesting these: samsung 830 (maybe 840) / kingston hyperx / ocz vertex 4 and mentioned crucial m4.

i am not sure about the size atm...

any other ideas ?

i am using my pc almost entirely for gaming just fyi

thanks
