Hey everyone,
I've got some bad news. The build is going to be postphoned for a little while. At least until I can get a job. I have been having trouble with getting money to fund this build for a while and I just found a good deal on a car. So things take some priority and this computer can wait. So by the time I start it again, it'll probably be a Haswell build. Just a thought right now, not promising. I've been waiting on some savings bonds from my parents and they're taking longer than I would like to hope. So it's either sacrifice the quality of this build to complete it, or wait and get it done the right way. I'm going to hold off for now. Thanks for all your advice and help thus far. I'll post again when I am ready to start this build again. frown.gif

Okay, then. I agree that you should prioritize like you did; see ya when you pick up the build again!

No worries. Besides, it might work out for the better in the long run -> nice car + Haswell PC thumb.gif

GL with the job & check back when your ready to build.

Well, here's some good news and me being pissy for reasons I will get into in due time. So apparently I am not allowed to get the car I've wanted since I was a kid, because "It's too good to be true" according to some people. So I'm pissed. Because this car was verified and inspected by Google Checkout, which is in current possession of the car. SO, I still plan on buying this car, and I really could care less what other people think, because it's my happiness and people have been raining on my parade for years. Even went so far as to throw their opinions and say it looked ugly, when it's my choice, not theirs.

BUT, if by chance they find a way to keep me from buying this car, such as blocking my funds or some other means, then, out of spite, I will be making one of the best gaming PC's I can think of. And here's what I'm thinking:

Case: Corsair C70 Black
CPU: Intel Core I7-3770K (or Haswell CPU, if available)
PSU: SeaSonic Platinum 1000W
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i or Swiftech H220 (Ideas)
GPUs: Looking at either 2x 680 Lightnings or 2x 7970 Ghz
Mobo: MSI MPower or Gigabyte G1 Assassin or ASRock OC Formula or ASUS Sabertooth Z77 (Or similar Haswell socket mobos)

I'm taking all suggestions. It will be a strict gaming machine. BF3 is my preferable benchmark game.
For video cards, I've gone back to the drawing board, this will be a multi GPU machine. So on the table we have:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202008
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127677
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202001

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130797


Now keep in mind, this is a military themed build and big things like the graphics play an important role.
And I'm not doing any LEDs, mostly black, maybe a single soft Red LED just to light things up a bit. But Sheela is a tank, a gaming tank.
So I'm looking forward to hearing all your ideas. If this doesn't workout, I'll go back to my original build plan.
post #16 of 30
@StrifeWolfe: Sucks about the car (BTW, I'm curious as to what model, but OK if you don't want to mention).

[NOTE: Nothing below is priced check so you might find cheaper prices elsewhere]

Case: Why the C70 black instead of the C70 in "military" green? I think that would be the perfect "military case" unless you're up for a real challenge biggrin.gif

PSU - The SeaSonic X-1250 might be a better choice. It got a really good review at JonnyGuru and cost about the same. "Gold" vs."Platinum" not an issue IMO.

SSD/HDD: SSD (OS/programs) = Samsung 840Pro 256GB Great drive. 2x fast as 840 write (not as important as read, but still...), and importantly (IMO) has a higher rated life-cycle & longer warranty (5 year warranty vs. 3 year). Read of few reviews on the 840Pro and you'll see. HDD: WD Caviar Black 2TB Older design (maybe still four platters), but still pretty fast as HDD goes + 5 year warranty. Should be as/more reliable compared to other large HDDs. I've been using one for over 2 years and so far so good. FWIW, WD might be coming out with a newer version using 2 platters so you might want to keep an eye on that. A 2 platter 2TB Caviar Black wold be a great data HDD IMO. FYI - Advantage of separate OS/programs & data drives is that if you ever need to reinstall/clean install your OS (virus/whatever), your data is still safe on a separate drive. Plus, SSD speed much more helpful for OS/programs, and all that data writing in on another drive rather than reducing SSD life. Finally, less stuff on your SSD = better overall performance (not a huge difference, but a difference nonetheless.)

GPUs: Since you don't use any GPU compute/accelerate software that requires NVIDIA (ex. PremeirPro/Encore, etc.), I suggest 2x Radeon 7970GE (3GB) over GTX680 for the best overall gaming performance. AMD 384bit memory interface even with 3GB > GTX680 4GB 256bit interface at higher resolutions IMO. Just be prepared to add some fans for extra cooling. Definitely want non-reference design like this one or the ones you listed. FWIW, going with a good non-reference design "plain" 7970 might OC just as well as a GE, but not 100% sure about that. FWIW, AMD is offering Crysis 3 free with purchase of 7800 or 7900 card right now.

However, 2 x 7970 may not be the best value play. From what I've read, the 7950 "Boost" cards OC very well and offer very close performance to a 7970. Rather than 2x7970, you might consider 2x7950 3GB "Boost" such as this, this, this, or even this. NOTE: These are just examples rather than any specific recommendation though HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock 3GB seems to have some good reviews (right side of web-page). I think the Sapphire Vapor-X model also has good reviews.

Need to get back to you on the motherboard & other.

Goesto, I'm loving the feedback, thanks so much. As for the car, according to some people I know, it's a fake add. Car of my dreams right there, and I have no way of knowing if it's real or fake. So it looks like I'm passing it up and going back to my crotch rocket. I would have loved to have a car like this, but it looks like I'll be waiting till after college to continue my car passion. As for the C70, I feel more comfortable with the black, but I would love to try a military green case, I'm just nervous about the colors matching up.

Keep the military themed parts coming guys. I'm open to any and all ideas. Thanks again, Goesto.

Ok, so I've been doing a lot of digging online, and I've seen a bunch of cool builds that are similar to this, but since this is Sheela, a scorpion tank, it's going to be special. After looking on this website I thought it would be cool to incorporate more of the scorpion styling. So a Corsair C70 with the traditional scorpion logo


and using the Halo Wikia, I got a cool idea of using the logo's from all the different tanks seen in Halo story mode. I'm also thinking about getting one of these for something to add on for a little fun. I almost entertained the idea of a Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition, but that didn't last long. I like where this military theme is going right now, and I want to push it more towards the Scorpion tank look I had in mind. So, if anyone knows where to get custom cut vinyl stickers, for the scorpion logo, and maybe a sticker that says " Hello, my name is Sheela, I am a M808B Main Battle Tank" or just say "Sheela"
and under that say "M808B MBT". Just entertaining these ideas of mine. So ignore me if it sounds crazy.

Another thought that has occurred to me is to go back to my original case pick of the GX700, because I've seen a lot of military themed C70s. Looking at motherboard and graphics combos right now, I'll keep you posted on my ideas.
