Gaming-Heavy Computer for client- please review - Page 2

post #11 of 39
If I were you, I'd get a good cooler despite no OC. I dunno, it just always make me when there's actually been put some love into a build that at first looked like an average Dell.

BTW how are you doing this thing? I've been considering doing a similar thing when I turn 18.

You would be better off with a Samsung Spinpoint F3 or F4. They are faster and quieter than the WD's and don't put out nearly as much heat as the Blacks.

Agreed on the CPU choice as well. The 1055 or 1075 would help to enhance the appeal and performance of the system at a minimal cost difference. The 1090 and 1100 aren't necessary as you mentioned he won't be doing any overclocking.

Thanks guys, your really helpful!
No game uses 6 threads, and very, very few even use 4. A quad core has plenty of legs on it still, a hex will just have at least 2 cores doing nothing 99.9% of the time. And you will also need to pay more for the same performance (stock clock speed)/core.

edit: don't forget tax, is the $1400 he wants to spend before or after tax? He may be PO'ed if it comes out over $1400 because you didn't mention tax, any you'll be forced to take a loss or piss off your first client.

Ok, I have to ask...How much money are you trying to pocket? Just 10%, or as much out of $1400 as possible?

Well, actually I am 17. I just put an ad on craigslist. He will pay for the parts, then bring them to my shop and we will assemble it there.

And yeah, I went with a 4 instead of 6 in the first place because most (if not all) games wont use all 6 cores...

Perhaps you should have a look at this?

I'll agree on this.

Check out the Biostar 890FXE. A bit cheaper and they seem to be a pretty stable board. No problem (not caused by my tinkering) in 3 weeks.

Microcenter has 650W XFX for 69.99 after MIR, and a 1TB Samsung for 59.99. Their processor prices are matched to Newegg on Tues. and Thur. if I'm not mistaken.

I call BS on that article.

I get the same FPS in Metro as a guy with a 1055T @ 4 GHz and an OC'ed GTX 470 ().

Unless they're trying to use adv. PhysX, that is untrue. If they are using adv. PhysX, then I can guarantee that nothing below quad will even run the game.

Always have to remember the tax as well as any environmental handling fees if they apply (don't know how it works in the states).

Don't waste the money on the hex as stated. Unless he's going to be benchmarking, which it sounds like he isn't, it's not needed.

I would also consider a 965 instead of a 970. That .1 of a GHz isn't going to make a difference to him, but you can add an extra $20 or so bucks to your margin. If you find ways like that to make profit it can start to add up.

Don't ask me for proof man, ask the guy that wrote the article lol.
I will say that I moved from a Q6600@3.8 to my 1055T@4.2 and gained 20 FPS on average in BC2 using the same video card.
