Well for starters, he said that he has purchased the cpu, cpu cooler, and motherboard already. So those were his picks that I could not change. My z77 extreme 4 has been wonderful for me, however, in the last thread where I suggested some parts for a guy, I did go with the UD3H Gigabyte model. So you do have a good pick there. The hyper 212 evo is a fantastic cooler for the price. We know that Ivy tends to hit a ceiling quicker then Sandy and I don't think the extra money spent on the cooler you picked is going to change that ceiling. I don't even know how aggressive he is going to overclock, if at all.

I picked the RAM because it was the same price as his original build, but faster.

I picked the Corsair psu to show him that he didn't need a 750w psu and the 650w Corsair would do good. I would not go with your suggestion of Roswill Hive Series. Really he should go with THIS ONE or something made by Seasonic which he can find HERE. Either way, for a $1500 build he should at the very least go semi-modular because it isn't just about looks. Putting everything together is going to be WAY easier and he will have better airflow throughout his case.

As far as the GPU is concerned, I will have to concede that you might know more about AMD cards then I do. I have only spent extensive time in researching Nvidia products. However, I do think that the 7950/7970 is the best deal on a card right now. I would have no problem in him getting a EVGA 670 4gb and then sli it later. You can't beat EVGA as far as I'm concerned.

In the end, I think we both made solid suggestions and I hope he is happy with whatever he gets.
Very mature of you, thanks for that, I actually didnt see his post saying he bought those 3 things already. The Rosewill PSU is a good one, I picked it from the Good PSU thread in my sig and it gets the reviews to back it up, although I would probably go for a seasonic aswell over the Rosewill, it is fully modular which is great. Im just more wondering how the hell I snuck in like 3 more expensive parts and keep it under budget. No wait never mind, I didnt include an SSD (lol, failure)

But to help you out, XFX is the equivalent of Zotac and Powercolor ( I would still own a powercolor over an XFX though)

Alright, I've checked your links. The first example was for OC'd cards. The OP may or may not OC, and the card may or may not OC well. Personally, I leave OC'ing out of recommendations unless the person has mentioned an intent to do so. As for your second example... Well, that article doesn't even include a BF3 test. Huh? Maybe research your research before you tell me to research?

I really just know about XFX because my power supply is a Seasonic made XFX and it is fantastic. I just figured since they were putting out good PSU's that they were also solid GPU's and it was the cheapest GHz version....learn something new everyday.

Do you feel bad that we hijacked this guys' thread?? LOL.

Seems to me that you're closer to flaming than I am. As for researching - did I not provide a reference? I did. Did you check said reference? Apparently not. So who needs to do research here? Did you feel that I was attacking anyone? If so, why? I even made it clear that I think AMD cards are great. What's your problem?
I was more correcting you on you saying that the GTX 670 is faster then a GHz edition 7970. And I didn't bother checking reference model 7970's because they actually cost more (no idea why) the their aftermarket cooler counterparts. And I did check the reference, it was from well over a year ago, making the results nearly invalid due to the change in drivers on both sides (Granted I cant say much for my first reference then, but the second one works). The lastest drivers for Nvidia are garbage (I know because I have one), I've actually seen a small decrease in FPS (major decrease in Minecraft, was at 160-170, now at 130-140) where as the AMD drivers made everything smoother and slightly faster. If you notice I am an Intel guy, both my processor and GPU are Intel, but AMD's stuff right now is just simply better (excluding the titan). Didnt mean to sound like an ass, but I come across like that sometimes.

I have owned both a 7950 and a GTX 670, and my 7950 was faster (but had major artifacting problems, even at stock everything). I actually lost about 15 FPS from AMD to Nvidia, but the Nvidia WAS much smoother. Cant say the same now.

I never feel bad devil.gif Every 'help with build' thread turns into a PSU and/or GPU war. And yes XFX psu's are great so I can see the confusion. To be fair the GPU itself is well built, it just has poor cooling, poorly picked chips and a higher failure rate per card (from what I've read)
