My new upgrade, tell me what you think

post #1 of 125
Thread Starter 
If you look at my rig,you will see what i am upgrading. Now don't get me wrong i LOVE my current board cpu etc, but it was time for me to take the leap into ddr3 etc. I will still use the old stuff, just in a new box. This stuff is going into my Blackbird 002 case. for board and CPU i bought this
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8216845&Sku=M69-7164

for rhe memory i went with these, i will get two more later to max this out at 32gb. ive never felt what a system is like past 4gb anyway.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7487099&CatId=4534

I could not swing a SSD at this time, but in the near future i fully plan on adding two 240gb SSD drives. but for now i will use this.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6076939&CatId=2459

to cool my new CPU i decided to get this, after research i found out the 1155 coolers fit the 4th generation Haswell boards/cpu's, god i hope that's right.

i ordered some of this thermal paste, i have some antec 7 here and i could always get artic silver 5 locally.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3071621&CatId=503

i already have this power supply, brand new.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7564403&CatId=1483

and this video card for now, brand new.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3755049&CatId=7387

I do plan on getting another 16 gb of ram, and a GTX 670. from what i hear they run the same as a 680. and who has a grand for a 690 atm? And i will get another power supply, but for now i dont think i should have any problems with the one i have. thoughts?? Oh it will arrive tomorrow, so tomorrow is going to be a fun day..unless i get something DOA then my day will be frown.gif(

Call me crazy, but I would much rather spend a couple of weeks asking for help selecting parts before I make any purchases.

i read up on the board for compatibility for memory, i got the board and cpu as a combo, idk how i went wrong with the HD besides not SSD which i plan on doing. and I had to order last night because i did not have to pay for it. it was a gift but i had to order it or wait 2 months until my mother got back from vacation. what would you do?

Well, it'll work (that is, if you have a motherboard. Do you have a motherboard?), but the good people in this community would help you select parts that might be better than what you selected without changing the cost that much. Plus, very few of us like Tiger Direct. Their prices are usually higher, it seems to me that their customer service has a bad reputation on here, and their selection leaves a bit to be desired.

 

For one thing, you could have ended up with a good solid state drive without breaking the budget and without making any compromises on the build.

 

Another thing is that Haswell runs hotter than Ivy Bridge and it consumes a little bit more power.

 

Then again, there's the rip-off price of the CX600.

 

Finally, and again, what about the motherboard?

 

What will you be using your computer for? I mean, 16 GB of memory is already pretty overkill.

This isn't what you want to hear, but I would wait the 2 months because then I could take my sweet time building the absolute best system for the money with the help of the OCN community, instead of just doing it all by myself in one day's time and then finding out if I made good choices.

Your mobo CPU combo is $549.99 on tiger, you could get the mobo for $219.99 and CPU for $239.99 on newegg.com. which is $459.99. a $90 saving......

Your ram, $138.92 on tiger, $128.99 on newegg....saving $10

Your coolermaster thermal paste $7.99 on tiger, $5.99 on newegg....savings $2

Your video cards, same ones I got. wink.gif

if you bought those 3 things on newegg instead you'd save yourself $102 ( - shipping)

btw: I would have gotten either MX-3 or Arctic Silver 5 instead of the coolermaster paste, same price practically with better performance.

my first link shows my board and cpu combo, yes i got a board. This will be for gaming and having fun like that as well as daily use. I already had the PSU, and i dont like tiger direct either but newegg wouldnt allow my mother to buy the stuff and ship it to me which left me in that situation. here is my board again
