Lol good luck with that.

Gonna be fun when you find out your Q9550 performed just as good if not better than that 1100T.

No, they're not. But the samsungs are faster.


Also, if you really need 16GB, get these instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231315

Done get a cooler master psu, get a corsair, xfx, or seasonic. Also get the Biostar TA890FXE, cheaper and among the better overclocking AM3 boards, other than that get a different cooler and it looks good, the nh-d14 is a good suggestion, or get a rasa 240mm liquid cooling kit for $120

Sorry to bump but I'm curious as to what motherboard I should get if I buy a 2500k. Keep in mind I want all that RAM and I need to crossfire the two 6970s

hows this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131702

$1900 budget + Phenom II = Awful choice.

A little contradictory don't you think? Both are overkill.

By the time 16GB is standard or necessary, we'll have moved far beyond DDR3. 8 is plenty and 4 is enough for most.

Cores mean almost nothing in the world of gaming. Most games won't even use 4.


Also, why bother getting 2 cards if a 6990/590 is cheaper/same price and gets the same performance? You could also just buy one 6970/570/580 which should give you no issues as far as FPS is concerned and by the time the cards aren't powerful enough to keep up with games just throw in another one which, by that time, will be dirt cheap.


Save some money and get the Silver Arrow. Same temps as D14 and cheaper.

As for Intel, I would probably get this.

If you wanna go AMD, get Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 (r3.1) it's an am3+ board with good 8+1 phase VRM.

For psu, any single rail 850+ watt will do. And a single gfx card is better because less heat in the case and less power.
