$1900 Rig, Thoughts on what to change and such - Page 4

post #31 of 46
For $1900, at least get a 2600k and a decent ssd. For that setup, you really only might need a 750-850 watt psu. I suggest an Antec TruePower 2 for around $100. Also, you might not need it, but you might want to get a nice full tower case like the haf 932. Also, remember when buying ram to get high frequency and low timings.

For PSU an AX850 would be more than enough for a single HD6990 (Even an AX750 would be more than enough).


So I'd go for a Corsair AX850

once again, high frequency isnt needed. low timings arent needed- nice to have, but NOT needed.

1600 at cl8 is fine

Thank you everyone for all of your input, I'm still a bit confused on the PSU and I'll most likely be throwing in an SSD before I purchase it. I need to talk to my dad whos paying for half of it though. I need the 2TB because I already have 1.2TB on my externals lol

If he wanted more GPU power he should go with another HD6970 to have an HD6990 + HD6970 Tri-fire

x2 HD6990 is a waste of money considering how bad 4 GPU's scale...

And even with that Tri-Fire, 850W would be more than enough

If you want a 2TB for storage only I'd grab a Caviar Green 2TB Great for the price

If you also want to mix them with programs and games, you could add x2 Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

As of the PSU, with no doubt the Corsair AX850 will serve you more than enough in the future

Never said it wasnt, but seemd like he was a storage freak, plus, what's wrong with extra power? it's not like i was recommending him 1000+ psu's. im just stating that you mentioned 1 6990, i mentioned the fact that he was thinking of 2.

whether or not that changes the power requirement is foreign to me, idk squat about the tdp of the 6990. all i know is that i'd rather have my rig start up rather than not have enough power and NOT have to go through buying another psu just for an upgrade.
