x4 630 + HD 5670 + 4GB - Page 2

post #11 of 26
It won't work and even if it did would not at all provide you the best performance because you are
1. running a 75W video card with a low-quality OEM power supply (as I said, quality 300W would be fine, but most 300W in prebuilts aren't the best quality and can barely supply 300W)
2. 5770 needs 6-pin power connector
3. running single channel
4. running generic memory
5. running on a board not designed for overclocking at all

Would the HD5670 work well with my build?

Prebuilt PCs (whether using OEM parts or custom built parts) usually don't have the best parts/quality. I make a lot of custom build suggestions on OCN and can make a decent $600 PC (with $600 I can fit in a Phenom II x4, decent video card (HD 5770 performance or more, decent 2x2GB DDR3-1600, etc.)

Are you in the Vancouver or Toronto area? If so, two propositions I might have for you:
1. Shop from www.ncix.com. They overall have better service in my opinion/experience, local pickup in metro Vancouver & Toronto areas (no shipping cost), a great parts selection, and even price match so you can still get your parts at the Newegg price or whatever.
2. I get back home in Vancouver in around 5 days, if you and your friend are in the Vancouver area I might be able to help with the primary parts selection and maybe even the assembly process if you do so wish

About your setup, the i3 is a potent gaming CPU; you may need more than 300W to run that with an HD 5670; LGA1156 is a dual channel platform, you do not want to be running 3x2GB as you will be running single channel and losing performance.

Hey, I am Roro's friend Nice to meet you. Hey I was wondering since we aren't really close to vancouver or toronto, would it be possible if you build it on the site and get the review link and post it please?

Thank you very much, really appreciated!!!

An HD 5670 takes up an additional 75W or 6.25A on the 12V rail; I'd worry about it on that 300W since it's not a quality unit (probably only has enough amps on the 12V for that i5 CPU).

Hey there, welcome to OCN!
NCIX can build your computer (if you provide a parts list, which perhaps I could help you configure using the latest sale/price match) and provide a 1 year warranty for around $50; this applies too to people not near an NCIX store, they'll just ship the entire PC to you.

Until my MB my new MB arrives, I'm on a single core P4 640 3.0GHz, with only 3GB of usable old DDR2.

I benched GTA IV @ 1920x1080 and DirectX9c, with my 5670 1GB OCed to 900/4760, on high/high, 10/10/15, it got 16fps, can't wait till I get a 69x0

I tried Far Cry 2 with DirectX9c, completely maxed, and it was around a low 20fps

In a few days I have to try it all again, with my pII x3 740 and 4GB DDR3 1600 CL7 and Win7 so DX11.

Thanks for the welcoming ! That would be awsome if you would be able to help me with the parts list in order to get a decent computer!

Alright, I'll see what I can do. It'd help a lot if you had an exact budget actually.

Hey, I was actually thinking of buying this computer

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...227&CatId=4928

Would you recommend it? I want to be able to play games maxed out if I can at 1080p!
