post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Will be used for 3ds max and gaming. I was thinking i5 2600k with a 6870.

Motherboard and cpu : http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...s&promoid=1016

GPU: http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...0&promoid=1016

What do you guys think ?

Here is a decent build for ya.

If you want to go cheaper then you could get rid of the SSD. But after rebates, it's under $1,000

That's a well balanced build above.

I would switch the WD 1tb drive for the Samsung F3 which is cheaper, and drop the GPU for the stock Gigabyte 6850 which overclocks to 6870 levels (the factory overclocked Gigabyte 6850 is the worse overclocker due to lower VRM quality) with the money saved.

By looking for combo deals this price could be brought down further. Good place to start OP ...

I like the build except for two things. Is it necessary to get the 6GB/S caviar black? Personally I would just go with the Samsung F3 1tb for cheaper. I'm not even sure if that Caviar Black can really push up to 6GB/S. The other issue which I would definitely change (hard drive doesn't really matter that much) is the power supply. The 650TX is a nice power supply but very over priced. The XFX 650 Watt power supply is better, modular, and cheaper ($89.99 originally and $59.99 after MIR).

I agree with the hard drive but I don't agree with the 6850. The 6850 can overclock to stock 6870 levels but why not get a 6870 and overclock it past that??

Nah, it's not really necessary for the 6GB/s but what the heck

I just got that same PSU and love it. In that case that is in the build you don't need modular. I was able to do good cable management with the rest of the unused connectors plus Corsair is one of the best out right now.

If you want to go cheaper, go with the F3 HDD and just get a good 500w PSU for that build unless you are going to OC and go SLI/x-fire. Then you would need a bigger PSU to hold it.

I should have mentioned that build is for a friend, so im gonna try to keep the overclocking at a minimum.

Also the build you gave me does not include tax or shipping and is on newegg.com.

It should be either on ncix.com or directcanada

In the proposed build, there is also only 4 gigs of ram. This system is gonna do some rendering and handle heavy 3d application. I would have thought that 6 gig is the minimum.

Also, what is wrong with my original build proposition ?

Well I don't know what the taxes or shipping will be. The build is at 979 right now so take that off and that will be like 849 to leave room for taxes and shipping.

You have all the part numbers now so try to see if those other sites have the same items. good luck

The Price/Performance ratio is hugely different.

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/364...ked/index.html

Sure the overclocked 6870 performs a small percentage higher than an overclocked 6850, but it's not worth the price difference IMO. It seems that any game the overclocked 6870 can handle, the overclocked 6850 can handle also with almost no discernible difference in real world game play.

That's worth saving the extra bucks to me, not to mention the Gigabyte cooling solution stays ultra cool and quiet. (In the Tweaktown review, the card is using an old bios which had the fan running @ 70% I believe - an updated bios keeps the fan almost silent, even without a fan profile)

Sandy bridge is dual channel RAM. 6gb of RAM is for 1366 platform ...

If doing lots of 3d applications, then get 2x4gb of RAM (8gb total)
