GTech's Premium Gaming System Build(s) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I tend to agree that the PSU is a touch more than is really needed. A quality 800w would be perfectly fine.

I'll give some of what you recommended a consideration jivenjune +Rep

Any suggestions on the Video Card (1) for Black Diamond, or should it remain Crossfire?

Just my
The problem was on the SATA II, not SATA III.

Build is still solid and due to the re-release it renders the chipset problem invalid.

Edit: On build 3, why not bump it to 1TB drives like the F3 or something, only an extra 15$ for one HDD and 30$ for the RAID. No sense getting 500GB when 1TB is viable cheap solution and offers double storage.

Edit 2: Personally on #1, the UD7 is a nice choice but wouldn't a lesser expensive model like the ASRock Extreme4 , ASUS P68P67 Pro/Deluxe, or even the UD4 would be nice alternative and the difference could be used to put the GPU at 6970 or a 570?

For system #1 I'd change the following

CPU: i7 2600k
Mobo: Gigabyte UD4
Memory: Corsair/Mushkin/G.Skill DDR3 1600mhz 4gb (2x2)
GPU: A single GTX 570

Note: OCZ apparently is using slower 25nm memory in their ssd's atm. If you can get the old, faster 34nm memory then stick with the Vertex 2. Otherwise Mushkin Callisto Deluxe is probably your next best bet.

For the other builds I'd recommended getting the Samsung F3 7200rpm 1tb drives.

We discussed the i7-2600k in a thread or two here, it's more affordable, and not much of a significant difference to use the i7 over the i5, for $70 is a lot of money, which is equivelant to buying a Dual Core Processor, so the performance difference between and i7 and an i5 isn't worth the $70 difference, unfortunately...

Here is your proof...




Nominal differences, really...

Seagate is my favorite and most trusted hard drive brand, I have relied on these for many years & I personally have never had one fail yet! & That is a mouthful in itself...

Obviously you are not reading the RAM and SSDs recommended are you?

Let's see 6870 XFire vs GTX 570 On Crysis Warhead:

6870 XFire = 79 FPS @ 1920X1200 2XAA
GTX 570 = 54 FPS @ 1920X1200 2XAA

Difference 35 FPS / Price Difference = $105 More for XFire 6870

Is that worth it to you? YOU make that call, but the XFire 6870s are my recommendations for now...

The GTX 570 is definitely good enough to run All games in HD...

The 6870 In XFire can run all games in HD in HIGH QUALITY... There lays the difference essentially...

+ XFire 6870 gives you Eye Infinity...

These are Premium Systems though, so the 570 isn't considered Premium, the 580 now, that maybe a different story, but it's $500+ so it's no go...

I will keep working on these Premium Systems for the next 3 days, all feedback is welcome, but I cannot guarantee I will agree with all of it...

Isn't the XMS3 considered generic memory?

Running on tighter timings and lower volts. Only 5$ more

Same latancy as the XM3 except lower volts and same price.

I think the Odyssey Bridge build would be better to switch out the hdd for a samsung spinpoint f3 drive, faster/cheaper, And i would ditch the frio for a silver arrow simply because it's useless @ high overclocks apart from that and maybe the gpu, Nice build

That's what I call adding to the post, thank you for your research, +Rep!

Did anyone notice that the words "I think" wasn't anywhere in his post?

He is showing & backing up his statements, that's how you add to the quality of the forums or a thread..

*Makes personal note, back up your statements!

====================================

I updated the Power Supplies to the Premium builds based upon a professionals recommendations...
