  1. Your friend shouldn't scare you needlessly. That PSU is the same one I have but my video card is GTX 470 and my processor is i7 920 both overclocked and both consume a lot more than what you have. That PSU you have is amazing and shouldn't worry about anything. If it's the same friend that wants to sell you that maximus mobo then I think he's just an annoyance.(and should be eliminated )

    DOTA 2

    Lifestealer is too easy.
  3. I don't know how that Crossfire would fair over a 7770. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161402 for an extra 30 bucks i'd get the 7770 to avoid crossfire issues.You still get Dirt 3 with this one. http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-radeon-hd-7750-and-7770-review/17 not to shabby for 130 $ if you ask me. I think the prices are still going down on HD 7000 series. Edit: here's the combo: http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardware/Reviews/amd_llano_dual-graphics_asus_hd_6670/
  4. 320$ for a used asus maximus? Are you kidding me? get the gigabyte.
  5. Or just get this : http://www.guru3d.com/article/asus-mars-ii-review/
  6. I once ran 6 miles every day for a month. Lost 24 pounds, though i really did a number on my back. That and sitting all day in front of the PC. I suggest swimming over running.
  7. How much is your friend selling that asus maximus for?
  8. I highly doubt the 350 W PSU even has a 6 pin. That 6850 needs a separate power plug from the PSU. You can't just put it in your computer (it worked for old cards but nowadays cards need more juice).
  9. I gave you some stars since you comment so much on everyone's post :P

  10. Well vandreadstriker's build seems good enough. After MIR you could even get him a nice CPU cooler and overclock that chip a bit. Make sure it fits into that tiny nzxt case though. Edit: i would personally not place windows 7 on a 30 GB ssd. Too small.
  11. Can he crossfire the 6670 with the GPU on that processor? There's a topic in video cards about this.
  12. To get accurate card efficiency you look at benchmarks and not the actual numbers on the card. Why are you so hellbent on getting SLI? 2 cards almost never means 2 times the performance of that single card. There are also issues with SLI in certain games, they consume a lot more energy, they are a lot hotter and are more expensive. Yes, you will see better performance in games over a single 680 but currently and for quite a long time in the future, the single 680 will carry any game amazingly on its own. If later in the future you feel that it will struggle, then you can get an extra and still have a top of the line gaming rig. If you get SLI now you'll be sorry later since you won't be able to SLI another card in there (I mean you will be able to get tri-SLI but that's jsut a power hungry inefficient setup) and not to mention your electric bill will also slightly be higher. Here's a reference 680: http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-680-review/ and here's an MSI one(the one I recommend) : http://www.guru3d.com/article/msi-geforce-gtx-680-twinfrozr-iii-oc-review/ Here's another one (this is the best one of the lot though i don't know how expensive it is): http://www.guru3d.com/article/palit-geforce-gtx-680-jetstream-review/
  13. I would personally not spend the extra hundred. My RAM (which is 1600) was first clocked at 1066 and it took me a while to realize this. I overclcoked it and guess what: I even kept an eye on FPS in games. nuthin'
  14. Edit: Damn it, i pressed the wrong button. Disregard this reply
  15. Can you tell us how much you want to spend on this mobo? Here's a Z77 which I think is pretty good at 160$: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128544 It's a bit expensive but it's Gigabyte and has all sort of features. I find it a bit steep , but I have no idea how much a p67 sabretooth costs to compare. As far as buying AsRock, don't. I don't scare people away from AsRock usually but you are buying a piece of hardware from another country. If it breaks you're pretty much screwed as far as RMA is concerned. AsRock has good stuff but it's somewhat notorious ,in my country anyway, of breaking down. The Gigabyte and Asus mobos are what you need. So if you find a mobo that you like but it's AsRock , then I strongly suggest against getting it. Now I expect some bashing from my fellow OCC'ers for my previous statement.
  16. 560 Ti is somewhat better, though 35-40 isn't that bad. A 560 Ti is similar to my 470 and I used to play Metro 2033 on my old 1280 monitor at full detail easily. at 1440 just disable advanced DOF and you'll be amazed at the difference in performance. (<- your smiley)
  17. I don't know what this XMP whichcraft is but I manually set my RAM frequency and my timings after setting my ram voltage to 1.66.
  18. get the single 680.As far as PSUs are concerned OCC has a great PSU list. Edit: Here it is: http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.php?showtopic=63579 If you want just one card, then a Corsair 650 TX will do great. If , however , you plan on putting in another 680 in SLI later (which in a few years will be quite a great idea really since you will still have a top of the line PC for gaming with 2 of those) then nVidia suggests a 750 watt PSU - so a corsair 750 TX. However, I suggest an 850TX if you plan on overclocking your entire rig and adding ssd's and what not.
  19. Can I get that link again with the store, Andres?
  20. If I remember well your parents went all the way to America to get it. It really isn't worth another plane ticket to exchange it for a 1GB really . At 1440x900 you can max out Metro 2033 easily.
  21. Bioshock Edit: great game and it will run nicely on your 8800 GTS
  22. Do you always keep your case there Fogel? I keep mine somewhere far away from my sensitive ears. No wonder you can hear that 570.
  23. The 2500k is pretty expensive in India (or on the site that sanjesh provided anyway) and an i5 2400 is a lot cheaper. If he doesn't want to overclock his CPU that's the place to save money. If he wants to overclock (and let's be honest ... check this site's name) than for just 1000 rupees(lol rupees) he might as well get an i7.
  24. Well, OP the fact is ... we can't really say anything else about your build. Thing is that this i7 will last for a very long time and in a few years if you SLI another 680 you'd have a high end computer for gaming without having to buy a new build. About the PSU Fogel seems to be right, though I don't know how a 750 will fair in an overclocked SLI rig. You said you didn't want SLI so then the 750 will provide a ton of headroom in a single card rig anyway.
