HUGE upgrade

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok this summer i am planning to do a very big upgrade on my pc. (it is unnecessary)
Monitor S-IPS 2560x1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824176177

GPU- ASUS 570 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121432

CPU- i7 960 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-224-_-Product
PSU- CORSAIR 1000WATT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139007

RAM- CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB DDR3 1333 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145224

MOBO- ASUS Rampage III Formula http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131666

HEATSINK Noctua NH-D14 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835608018

So far it is $2,587.47

So does the 570 have enough horsepower for that resolution for future games a good while? I know using AA is not needed with that high of a resolution now.
Also is that PSU overkill for this build? I can't put it 2 570's unless the extreme edition of that board drops in price a little. Since the 570's are THREE slot cards.

I say more like

Intel 2600K
Asus P8P67 Pro
Corsair Vengence RAM
Asus GTX580 - Normal edition
HX1000 Watt psu is ok if you are planning to SLI, but still a bit overkill.

Im pretty sure that board would have even less space than this board and there is no comparison between them anyways. The 580 is not worth the money for performance over a 570

Definitely go for 2600k or even 2500k setup, 9xx series pretty pointless outside of workstation implementations atm.

Drop the PSU down to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139015
It can handle 2 580s, even slightly overclocked. 2 570s isn't an issue.

Don't go with the 960, Microcenter has the more powerful 2600k for cheaper (2600k is only topped by the 980/990X and barely at that): http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354587

So then you'd need dual channel memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145290

For motherboard, choose any on this list:

Personally, I'm a fan of the Sabertooth, but the Deluxe keeps the option of Tri-SLI DCII 570/580s open.

Also, monitor is definitely overpriced. 3x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236122 saves you enough to go directly to SLI 580s

I like your heatsink though

570 tend to die.
960 is bad. just get a 930 . save 80.
better off with the newer tech 1155 . if your not going to run a server 2600k is where u need to look. 580 is king under water and overclocked.

A lot of the 1155 board though were not that great. I really want the 2600k but i need a decent board. And does NVIDIA have a eyefinity equivalent? If not 3 monitors would no do much.

Asus P67 pro, deluxe or maximus extreme if you have the money are all great motherboards that would serve you well seeing as they can accommodate the triple slot card you are looking at even in SLI. Regardless of what brand you pick you really want to go with P67.

Nvidia has what's called Surround, it requires 2+ cards though, unlike eyefinity. They also have the software to do 3D surround, which beyond making your eyes mutiny from the epicness, requires 120Hz monitors. (Can do 3D with only 1 120Hz monitor too)

Besides overclocking awsomeness what does the 2600k have over like the i7-940? They don't seem to carry 930's anymore.

Im also going to go with EVGA 570 SLI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130593
They are 2 slot instead of 3 so they will fit easier.

I switched the ram for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148252. It has red leds that will look nice and its 6GB not 8.

I put in the 850w like you guys recommended.
so unless the 2600k is REALLY better, i would like the do the rampage III like in first post with the i7-940.

And im not really willing to switch out the 30'' even for the price. I really like the resolution and i think the bezels would annoy me using 3 monitors.
