EDIT: ($3350) Forced to spend 2800 on PC!! - Page 6

post #51 of 72
Might want to read your policy carefully and make sure they are going to do a replacement value on something that is so radically different.

"Like Kind and Quality" is usually the language used. The adjusters will allow some room for fudging within reason but check before pulling the trigger, they may deny the release of depreciation if they deem the thing you choose as the replacement to be of significantly different "kind and quality."



Example: In the picture above is a destroyed snow-blower. Insurance will pay for a replacement snow-blower of similar kind and quality. up to ~$1400 (what we payed for it, and it had less than 100 hours on it). They'd probably be fine if we switched to a different brand, but they're probably not going to release depreciation on this item if we turn in a reciept for a $1400 snowmobile instead.

I appreciate your concern but I have already checked. Im covered in the purchase.

Edit: I used a nono word tongue.gif

SLI/Crossfire doesn't double available VRAM, you only get more VRAM from running the cards by themselves.

2+ GPUs in anything BUT SLI and not using multiple monitors would be simply stupid unless you use one of them as a processor for things, like a dedicated CUDA render card or PhysX
Processor.

Better watch out, nature might decide to win your love by totaling your car with a big tree, since you didn't specify on what.

just to clarify I did not mean to imply that having GPUs in SLI doubles/triples your VRAM. I just meant that if he wanted 6GB of VRAM and only had 1 monitor he would never use more than 2GB, so he should either pick a card with a more prudent amount of VRAM or go with a higher resolution monitor.

heres a build

check your taxes, for me where i live the taxes bump it up to 2900
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3hGgf


you could just get a cheaper mobo, i took the best asus one, get the p79 or the sabertooth and if you want more ram then reduce the cpu to lower end 2011
something like 4770k and just buy a second batch of 32gb dominator platinum, then you will have 64gigs lol

if you want to make symphony music there you go, all the ram you will ever need

Same PSU 10$ cheaper

Why would I get the 3930 and not the 4930k? I am just using this for gaming. Also, why 64g ram? I want the most performance efficient per dollar machine for gaming. Did you suggest those parts for future proofing?

While it might sound stupid (like... "hur dur moar ram, yo)"
64GB of RAM can be amazingly good for gaming.
With a little work, you can use that RAM to load up all of your games (one at a time, before launching) to a 48GB RAMDisk and get the absolute lowest possible loading screen time available. and leaving you with 12GB of RAM for system/game RAM usage.

You'll need a RAMDisk software to use this. SuperSpeed has one, but it's expensive and there are alternatives. ImDisk is a free Open Source one, and I think AMD has one too but not sure if it's restricted to AMD builds or not.

You're way out of the budget range for that, man. i5 rigs with a step or two below below flagship GPUs is performance per dollar.. You're forced, by your insurance company, to not go with performance per dollar components.

That said, 2011 is a huge step out of price/performance. If you're going there you should probably consider a Dual CPU motherboard so you could at least get relatively cheap CPUs to fill both sockets, getting the best price/performance ratio in an out of bounds setup.

Think 2x 4820K's vs 1x 4930K

Bench Scores


$325 i7-4820K - 2031 ST / 9980 Overall
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-4820K+%40+3.70GHz&id=2030

$580 i7-4930K - 2017 ST / 13303 Overall
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-4930K+%40+3.40GHz&id=2023

Single threaded performance would be pretty much the same, and you would get over 50% more multithreaded performance for $650 vs $580. That's an incredible leap in performance per dollar... but it comes at a large price to reach that point of effeciency.
