Speaking of not getting sleep. Striker was. Man, the wind was horrendous here last night, things were flying through the yard crashing into the shed, the shed door) aluminum was banging, tree branches were falling of the cottonwood. Stuff was hitting the trailer and we have the old sheet metal roof and it was making that awful wappity wap noise. I woke up every 10 minutes until 5a.m., missed my appt. at the dog groomer. I kept looking over at Mindy, every time, sound asleep sawing zzzzz's, she didn't wear her Cpap becuase it cut up her nose the night before.

So.... I'm beat.

Oh, Grandma Enos always used to say "I'm tarred", I thought she was just being silly but I realize now that Grandpa was an asphault guy, one of his big stories was how he helped build the Great Alaskan Highway. Maybe that's where she got the saying??

Not very many. There's the 4870x2 but it's a power hog, Engima recently swapped his for 2 5770's, less power, resources, better graphics. I personally would not get a different card, I'd buy a second 5850. You can add a reference design 5870 if you want and they'll work great together. Basically no though. One 5870 or one 5970 won't beat out 2 5850's. There's a lot of info out there on this but I'll supply you with a few.

Wow, you can actually post a message of just 2 characters. That'll be the day for me huh??

Amd calls the new proc a Phenom II x6, the old ones, Phenom II x4. Makes sense 4 cores X4, six cores X6. OTH......

What's with intel's marketing guys?? The old procs were i-7's but they had 4 cores and 4 Hyper Threads, everyone knows that's 8. I thought, maybe it's the turbo, because you can turbo the first 3 cores, not the last with HT that's 7 but that's still wrong because you don't leave a core dead when you do that. Then they come out with the new $999- or with cooler $1049- Extreme Edition that has 6 cores and 6 HT's. What do they name it?? It's an i-7. I thought for sure, even though the i-7 name doesn't make sense, 2 more cores would be i-9. Nope, i-7 EE, Gulftown.

The only thing they did right was it fits in an existing X58 board with a bios upgrade, 1366 pin though, forget the i-3, i-5 and i-7's with slightly different names. Won't work for them.

Maybe I should start a tech blog?? Anyone know how to host one? Remember, I can't pay for a website.

Oh Striker, you really should look at this thread: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ing-stuff.html

Everyone else just go to the last page, picture your favorite color in there and drool!

Two 5850's will fit. X-Fire is something I've always wanted to do, but as of yet have not been able to do. The prevailing thought is 1 card will yield more reliable performance vs two due to scaling, but as with everything we've learned over the years we now find that advancements in tech require us to unlearn most of what we thought we knew. Fro me it's cost vs performance. For instance I have a 5770 and will probably go with another in X-Fire because of my financial limitations. If money were not a problem I'd go with a 5870 or 5970 because my board will let me without having do the case mod to get it to fit.

speed is nice but inless you know what your looking for you dont really see much from 1066 to 1333 but if your hitting that price cap feel free to ignore what im saying.

however i would get as cloce to that 600 mark as i could with the best parts i can and future proof as much as i can even if its just a few months


im falling asleep here so ignore me if you want to lol i could be WAY off base today. didn't get in till really late last night after a rather long drive (240 miles)

Hmmm isn't that one of the things they ask for sanity "do you hear voices in your head" or is it "do the voices tell you what to do".

Oh, anyway, I'd really really really really rather have 4G's of DDR3 1033 that you can clock to at least 1333 without a fan than have 2G's of anything at even 2000mhz!! More than once I've done a build (one of ours included) and skimped on the ram amount for faster ram and about died with the hard drive thrashing because Windows, any version, is playing in too little ram and is constantly acessing the hard drive.

On another note. I was like HOLY HANNAH when I thought a Corsair 650 bronze would be cheaper and the EGG is selling it for $109- because it was pick of the year last year. Isn't that price gouging?? I got Mindy's for $59- last Dec.

Oh, did you go to pricegrabber.com and see if any other reputable re-seller had these things for less? Of course taking shipping into accout. I already had a gpu in there but it's easy.

Defintely like the 690 as a case better than any Rosewill. As for the PSU, find out for sure, go here: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp They include a margin of sloppiness for inefficient PSU's. If that isn't spot on for you tell me everything that's going to go in this thing, initially and the future and I'll look it up in "The Book".

Dang I hate when I'm posting and hit the Windows key. I'd disable it but I use it in other things, like Windows.
Great tips everybody! Thanks! I think I will change the case from the Rosewill to the CM 690. For $39.99 I think that is a steal. Thanks for the advice, to all, they were all very helpful.

I'll keep you all updated on the build.

I just finished Reading the Benchmarks Review compare the 1090T X6 to the 920.. The X6 did beat the 920 but the 980 SPANKED everything across the board. But Not bad.





This chip could be AMD's i7 920 according to this test.



Pros:

+ Six physical processor cores
+ Introduces AMD Turbo CORE technology
+ Excellent price-performance ratio
+ Overlocks to 4.0GHz with 4.3GHz Turbo CORE
+ Maintains AMD socket AM3 compatability
+ Outstanding media transcoding or file compression performance
+ Dominates professional engineering and design tasks
+ Unlocked clock speed multiplier
+ Maintains 125W TDP


Cons:

- Shared L3 cache is the same between four- and six-core units
- Utilizes aging 45nm fabrication process

Someone must have called New Egg on that PSU price because now it's down to $69-.

Yeah, the one thing intel did each time they increased the cores was increase the L3. The new EE has 12Mb.

--Quick, Build-a-Friend, PC Update--

RAM is now: DDR3 1066 (2x2GB)

PSU is now: Corsair 650W TX

For the computer case, I am letting him decide between either the Rosewill & CM 690, because the cost difference from the RAM + possible shipping fee's from CM is up to him.
