post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new rig for my old man. I'll be using his existing three monitors, Sapphire 5770, Corsair 650 psu and WD 300gb Velociraptor. The new parts are in the atachment and I'm headed up to the Microcenter tomorrow for an i7 950. I'm already a smidge over budget but it can slide.

Q1: Can you make a cheaper/ better parts list for the same cost? Remember I'll be at MC tomorrow.

Q2: Can you find a better cooler, significantly cheaper, BUT doesnt weigh a ton, hanging on the board? Also should fit the Evga sli3.

Q3: His setup now is using an active display port adapter. Adding this little GPU will also let me setup 3 monitors also, correct?

Many thanx.

Are you only looking at EVGA? Asus and Gigabyte make great boards as well...

Have you bought the board already?

Edit:
Concerning the HSF, I recommend the CM Hyper 212+.

Honestly I think its worth squeezing out the tiny bit mroe to pick up a SB, specially since your looking at cooling it etc. He sounds pretty determined though

Pound for Pound SB's are better priced in my opinion, but depends what price you find on a 950 at MC.

You should beable to just use the Display port adapter and switch it around and plug the display port side into the 5770, and the DVI side into the Monitor no? I have a Display port monitor my self so not sure.

Why does he need an i7? I would just go with an i5 750 and a P7P55D-E PRO. 4gb of some G.Skill or Mushkin RAM. Hyper 212+ as a cooler.

The 950 is 200 at MC, thats the only reaon thats firm.

The display port adapter flat out sux. It drops the signal every once in a while and he's gotta unplug the usb and plug it back it, then it comes back a funky reso... its gotta go....
