did you read what he said to me? guy was I guess looking to start a fight then tells me that his twin 460's ran great on a 520watt (I think he only meant stock I hope) I don't know what every one else is pulling but I have a meter on just my system no monitors or extra stuff just the box and after my overclocking I am pulling during metro2033 or the big draw game is armaII and BFBC2 and they pull 753watts at peaking time (and there a lot of peaks) so I would never put a 650 on this unless I ran it stock or mild overclock nothing like what I have would be able to use a 650

Looks like a nice build. A few changes I'd make if it were mine...JMO

2500K instead of 2600K

Rather than the GD65 I'd go with a similarly priced Asrock Extreme 4.

Change out the 1333MHz RAM for some 1600MHz.

Ditch the internal card reader for an external.

That case isn't widely available here but for the prices I'm seeing on google shopping I'd go with something else. Cooler Master 690II Basic, Lian Li PC-K57 are the first ones that come to mind in the same price range and are much much better. Plus there are cheaper cases that are far better as well, NZXT Gamma, HEC Blitz......

Hot topic of the night. PSU. I suggest at least stepping up to the Antec True Power New 650. Simple reason it has 2 X 6 pin and 2 X 6+2 pin PCI-E power connections. Where the Earthwatts model you have only has 1 of each. Sure you could use adapters but don't unless you can't help it.

A good 650 watt PSU is plenty even if you did actually have 2 cards on the shopping list rolleyes.gif. I've pushed my i5 760 and SLI 460's pretty hard on a SeaSonic 620 with no issues. I'm with the overkill PSU club though, if you can squeeze it in the budget get a nice 850 watt PSU and most likely you will be glad you did down the road.

To be quite blunt, I've SLIed two 9800GTX+ cards on an Enermax 525W PSU.

Please trust me when I say that reputable manufacturers like Antec, Enermax, Seasonic, OCZ and XFX have very good reasons to manufacture higher-quality PSUs and to not grossly overrate their PSUs.

Take note that often in Crossfire or SLI what's just as important as the total wattage delivered is the current available for draw on the PCI-E rails.

Well with the voltage maxed in Msi afterburner I get what I posted, above is my max OC with no errors in OCCT. I don't think I'm goign to be using that program anymore though

It seems that the OCCT error check may be a little too sensitive after an hour or so in Heaven, fully maxed, I had no heat issues and no visible artifacts, sooo Idk but unfortunately still past 930 my driver fails almost instantly.

one of the audio wires i have got caught on my bottom 460s fan and prevented it from turning causing my card to bake my computer did an abrupt restart a few times before i could find the problem, thanks to The excellent quality of Nvidia's products and overheat protection no permanent damage though, needless to say, i bought a zip-tie, no more problems
post #1120 of 4095
painted my chasis black last night, i really think it makes my 460s blend much better
