Thinking of a new build [~1000$] - Page 2

post #11 of 28
If you're thinking about a storm sniper check this combo out
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.586085

Or the Haf 932
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.586126

Both have 850W power supply.

well the 570 is downright amazing, not sure about the 560 though, but the 570 would blow out your budget, you could do SLI 460,
Also, i would highly recommend a asus sound card, they are great imo

How does Cooler Master PSU compare to Corsair? I currently have a modular Corsair in my server and it is damn beautiful/amazing. Also, air flow/upgradeability/cable management-wise, which case is better? Storm Sniper or HAF 932? Looking for full tower since I absolutely HATE small tower. Too little room to do anything.

I currently have a really good sound system for my home entertainment system, so I'm cheaping out on audio for my computer. Got some good speakers though. Thanks for the suggestion though, Asus audio cards are amazing.


You guys have been helpful, +REP for all of ya's.

That one is pretty intense, though I didn't like how it was more expensive and the fans were smaller. Maybe I just don't know jack about airflow.

Cooler Master makes some decent PSU. If you're looking for a Full Tower that wont break the bank check out NZXT Phantom

All White Only 119$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146067
Black

No decent combos with the Phantoms. Looking back in hindsight I wish I would have gotten one.

If you already have a 5770 I would get another just so you can crossfire them, cause a GTX 460 is kinda a sidegrade.

Go for the GTX 560 - reviews of it are awesome, and Gigabyte has a 460 TI SOC Windforce model with factory 1ghz overclocks that have it performing right next to a GTX570 for $269.

This seems to be THE bang for the buck card now.

Not recommended, at all. I would definitely try and find the cash for a non-green OS HDD, and use that for storage.

And I 2nd the notion above for the NZXT Phantom in white - it's beautiful, and the matching NZXT Hale90 PSU's in white appear to come with black sleeved cables already, which is a very nice touch.

I don't really get the HDD debate. I use a Caviar Green for my mass storage. I run everything else off of a 120GB SSD. It's just mass storage why does it need to be high end? Never really understand that much.

I do agree with another 5770. Heres one for 100$ after rebate.

With that saved money I would think about picking up a small SSD. They can be had for under 100$.
