post #21 of 31
Looks pretty nice to me, except I would go with a Intel 335 Series SSD (same speeds as Samsung 840 Pro but a lot less money). Also, you don't need the thermal paste (H80 comes with it preapplied). Lastly, I would swap out the ram for some G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 1866 (about same price as the Corsair, but faster) for more performance go with 2133 (someone did a test on this forum, and higher speed ram does help out with better frames in games).

ASRock is fine, if you want another good mobo suggestion Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, but I prefer ASRock.

The Intel 335 is no where near the drive that the 840 Pro is. Here is a solid review over at HardOCP with benchmarks outlining the performance differences. The Intel 335 is a mid-range drive, if you want top Intel performance, you're still looking for a 520 series or 525 series.

For the Ram not True games dont benefit more then 1866mhz i Seen this over and over everywhere in forums and its closed debate, even windows performance wont be able to see after 1866 no improvement at all, so only case u go for high is benchmarks or editing rendering servers etc.... or ram disk and ram cache


As for Motherboard i suggest get same as mine the features it have amazing unless u dont want these features ( asus maximus V formula ) onboard audio is very good the Lan controled by game first let me have fun playing same time downloading etc... overlock 1 click if u r newbie biggrin.gif then learn bit by bit and go bios

For Ram u wont Go wrong with G skill

That review just further verifies my claim, they're practically the same speeds... but again for a lot less money. Besides, Intel makes claims of 500MB/s sequential reads and 450 MB/s sequential writes. Which is lower than what their supposed "accurate" benchmark claims.

You're wrong, a guy on here did a test. Higher MHz ram, means more framerates period. This whole, "nothing more than 1600MHz is worth your time" nonsense needs to stop. Faster Ram, means increased performance in more areas than one, even in gaming. If it wasn't the case, 1333 would still be the standard, or perhaps even 1066... rolleyes.gif

I'm not sure you read that review, or you didn't look at the charts, or both. Here, let me snip a statement from the review for you....

"The Intel 335 scored well in our trace-based testing, though it didn't have the high performance of the flagship SSDs."

"AS SSD Write testing shows the Intel 335 falling to all of the competitors with the exception of the Kingston V300."

"The AS SSD benchmark illustrates the performance of the SandForce-powered Intel 335 with incompressible data. Incompressible data is the weak point in performance for SandForce controllers, and here we can see the sequential write speed scoring only 323.39MB/s. "

I'm going to leave it at that. The 335 is a strong contender in the mid-range value oriented SSD market, but don't throw it into the high performance segment where it doesn't belong. It got high marks for reliability (as all Intel SSDs do) and value to price ratio, but it fell on it's face in the performance testing.

dude really the gaming performance of any game dont get effected by ram speed that much

http://www.overclock.net/t/1366657/ddr3-1600-vs-2133-is-there-a-difference-in-game/0_30

and As u said the 1333 is not the Standard ? lol dude the stadard for DDR3 800 1066 1333 1600 1866 etc.. there is so much more
and difrent speeds for difrent Budgest and needs but For gaming and he is not aiming For supreme gaming machine with higiest scores in benchmarks so he should settle with 1866 unless he want to be Extreme in that case he need to change cpu motherboard ram alone wont give him that top performance etc.. also as i wrote before ram speed benefit in other stuff but not gaming , the Games simply not designed to perform better with higher speed then 1600 , so i suggest 1866 for little future proof that is all

I think I made a mistake, my friend told me to get this optical drive (I wanted a drive that could read/write in blu ray/dvd/cd) but after I ordered it I noticed it doesn't come with any software. Is this going to be a problem for me when I try to install Windows? --

Or should I have gone with this? -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136250

What kind of software are you talking about? Windows will have drivers for the controller, you don't need any software to install Windows.

I guess the burner didn't come with any Blu Ray burning software?
