Hello help with 1500 gaming/folding rig - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I believe the 2500k can pull off -bigadv units but you would have to go with nvidia because ATI cards need a cpu core to fold. I'll work on a great rig for you , give me a few minutes...

EDIT:
Actually since it's for folding and you want eyefinity, i'll make it 2600k and AMD radeon.

Sorry going to replace that memory as well it's no good, go with this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-430-_-Product

And fair enough if you want to fold, the i7 is a beast for folding.

definately,

It's like putting unleaded fuel into your Aston Martin DB9. It's just no good for the engine. And this memory is great because of the brilliant timings as well.

That's not the best air cooler, the NH D14 out performs it along with teh Cooler Master V6 GT, but it is good. Memory isn't as good as the one I picked and the HAF X is fugly, lastly, since they bauhgt out The V2 on the TX's they are better than the antec. But the antec is still very nice.

Everyone except one knucklehead (Guy who copied the name of this site and added a silly 3 and a D at the end) has the Silver Arrow as king of Air coolers.






skip to 17:00 for results


As for Physx, that's just a preference on an individual basis.
I like it in my games, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Mafia 2.
