Which build would you pick?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So I am going to be getting a new build soon and I have 2 options that I cannot decide between D: because both are ALMOST the same...


Wishlist 1:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=15376665

Wishlist 2:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=15461205

Peripherals for both builds:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=19836447

what build would you choose? I am leaning towards the GTX580 build... but the M4E is a very attractive board (: BTW, I will also be getting a Corsair H60 and the Vertex 2 will be a Vertex 3 when they come out because it will be quite a few months before I actually buy this build..

That was my thoughts as well, this build has gone through like 7 revisions... first it was an AMD 6950, then a 560 Ti, then a 570, then a 580... OBVIOUSLY, a 580 is THE card... which gives that build some weight haha. So no advantages of the ROG board to justify a lower class GFX card? And I have read tons of reviews on the P8P67 and I am fairly certain I am actually going to go with the EVO since the 600T doesn't have a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter (unless someone knows where I can get a nice mesh one that will fit the case's aesthetics?) and I also plan to OC to 4.5 GHz 24/7, is that a good thing to do? Obviously, the performance increase will be awesome but I mean CPU health wise with good cooling it isn't hurting anything is it? AND, any comments/suggestions would be welcome (:

I'd pick the 580 build. And just glanced at your peripherals, that speaker system isn't that great. I had it before I got my z623's. Whata upgrade lol. Unfortunately Newegg doesn't carry it. Tigerdirect, however, does. But i don't know if you want to buy from two sites. Z623 for 36 dollars more it's worth it. But that's just my 2 cents.

The speaker system is probably going to stay mostly because of the reviews on newegg... but MOSTLY i don't want to shell out the cash for it (: it does look nice though..... D: ....

for 1920x1080 gaming i think the 580 is overkill, but then again this is OCN

My wish is to max out games at 1080p now and in at least a year or longer... so I figure invest now and prolong an upgrade for a little while. That said, will a 570 be able to max out ALL games at 1080p?
post #9 of 16
im maxxing out all games with 2 5770's, at 1920x1080, mind you im not playing mafia or metro, but for most mainstream games, except those and crysis a 570 is plenty
