Need Help Choosing my new system - FAST pls

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I need your help... I'm about to order, today, my new update and i need your help to chose between some parts...


I currently have a i7 930, Asus P6T, 6 gig Kingston HyperX, Corsair H50 cooler, SSD Crucial 120 gig SSD2 in a Corsair HAF 932.

My wife's pc is dead and need to upgrade her's so I will give her my Board, CPU, Memory, Cooler, SSD and put it in her Antec One hundred case and will keep my HAF932.

Here is what I'm planning to buy, Some parts im sure i'm buying, some other, I still hesitate between a few models. Please provide me with your choices explaining WHY you would go with that model... Also provide suggestions/recommandations for other models, again saying WHY!

I have an overall budget of 1,000$ CANADIAN (or US its same) +/- 100$.

So far, the kit I made myself would cost me 1050$ tax and shipping included.


- Memory will be Kingston HyperX Black KHX16C10B1BK2/16X for 120$

- Cooler will be Corsair Hydro Series H100i for 110$

- SSD, Not sure between Samsung 840 PRO 128 gig or the Normal 250 gig (not PRO) -- should i go for more space or speed ?

- CPU, Not sure between those 3: i7 3770K (my 1st choice), i7 2600K or i5 3570K

- MothrBoard, Not sure between those 4 models: ASUS P77Z-M PRO, GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H, MSI Z77A-GD55 or the ASUS P77Z-V PRO.
Not sure I would benefit from the ASUS Maximus V FORMULA which is like double price of the others...


I'm a casual gamer, not playing huge games, my main game is Lineage 2 so don't need that much for it, but im running like 5-6-7 instances of the client on my PC, so i still need something good.

Some video (de)encoding, using winrar a lot, some Photoshop and thats about it.

Planning to OC to about 4.5 stable.

Thx a lot for reading me and sharing your thoughts, suggestions and everything!

regards,
BUGZ

I would do this -=-=-=-=
Memory will be Kingston HyperX Black KHX16C10B1BK2/16X for 120$
Cooler will be Corsair Hydro Series H100i for 110$
SSD Normal 250 gig (not PRO) because space is more needed then speed , no matter what it will still
be faster then a HDD so you cant loose for winning !
Are you can get the fast one with less its really just a personal preference there ~
the I7 2600K I hear is allot better for over clocking and keeping heat away ! and its cheaper to build on it so once again I would
go with the 2600K but that is your choice! (will get 4.5ghz EASY!!!!!)

and for mother-bored I would stick to asus any asus one would do!

your not doing anything super intense so a 400-900$ bored is not needed for you!

GOOD LUCK!!!

Thx Republico for your thoughts !

I pretty much decided to avoid the 3570K, so now i need to decide betewen 2600K and 3770K. I read a lot on both, checked many comparisons and reviews... Some say 2600k cuz of low heat and some say 3770k because it can take the extra heat...

For the SSD, I'll probably go as you said, the more space option with the (Normal) 250 gig... read speed is the same, only write speed is lower on the Normal... And SSD is mainly made for reading and less writing on it...

For the board, I decided not to go for MSI for sure, read a few bad reviews on them and ppl with lot of RMA units... So it,s down to ASUS and Gigabyte, read many good reviews on both... So still can't decide! lol Asus P8Z77-M PRO is about 150$, same for the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, then, the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO is around 210$. Not sure about the difference between the Gigabyte UD3H and the UD5H...

Still some time to think about it, read more and hopefuly, get more comments from users like you!!!

Thanks mate !

Got a question regarding the RAM...

Is it worth going to 16 gig for about 150$ or 8 is enough for running 5-6-7 clients of Lineage 2 ?


Someone also told me to buy 32 gig and make myself a RAM drive to copy the game on it... Worth it?

And is it worth going for the HyperX and regular ValueRam is good?

Thnx again guys !

16 gb right now is enough for anything , 8 gb is still good but is pushing it !!!! so yes 16gb of ram is a good choice and value ram is never good for me it always caused BSOD for me
so if your going to build something don't go cheap! get the kingston!!!!

and no 32gb of ram is not needed at all its a waste of money!

Thx again dude...

I'll stick to my first choice, the 16 gig Kingston hyperX...


Is there a difference between getting 2 x 8 gig vs 4 x 4 gig?

Question about memory for my final choice. I hesitate between this:


2 KITS OF KHX18C9T2K2/8X, about 80$ each kit, Kingston HyperX predator 1866, CL9

or

1 KIT OF KHX16C10B1BK2/16X, 120$, Kingston HyperX Black 1600, CL10

Please help me make my final decision!

Is there a difference between the 2 options that is worth the extra 40$ ?

Thx again guys !!!

It's not a $40 difference. you can probably OC the CL10 ram to the same spec as the CL9 ram anyways. Also, I would rather have a Samsung 840 pro as it is theoretically more reliable. I would go for the Crucial M500 if you want space.
