  1. K , ill try 2 get a corsair psu. I've just checked the shop catalogue and ive seen the new sandy bridge there , the 2600k is 300€ while the i7 950 is 270€ , not a big difference , but since I want the pc for gaming , id like 2 ask if its worth waiting for the sandy bridge mobos that will come in a week or get the i7 950 , theres a point where the game just need gpu and not cpu and with an i7 950 i think i will have the same performance as with the 2600k but since i dont know anything about the 2600k integrated graphics , i ask for your opinion
  2. almost all shops sell nox in spain , i think its a good psu
  3. Well , ive been doing some research to build a good gaming pc , this is what i've chosen: CPU: i7 950 MOBO: P6T DELUXE V2 / P6X58 DE GPU: 2X AMD 6970 RAM: Corsair TR3X6G1333C9 (Ver2.1) POWER SUPPLY: NOX APEX 800W CASE: THERMALTAKE ELEMENTS V HARD DRIVE: HD 500gb , HD 1T , SSD 40gb MONITOR: samsung PX2370 LED Id like you to tell me if you see any kind of bottlenecking or if you would use another components , also i've think that ill just use the " in a box "cooler for the cpu do you think i should buy any extra cooling for the cpu? Also ill buy some fans for the rest of the pc
  4. Im planing to get 2x 470 or 2x 6870 but since i live in spain , everything related to pc pieces is like 30% more expensive than in US thats why im planing 2 buy the pieces there . The only Brands that they can ship here are this: hd 6870 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0047ZH7GE/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER Gtx 470 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00486TJBI/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER As u can see the 6870 its a lil cheaper , wich do you think I should get?
  5. did any1 think about 2x 470 sli? Its as expensive as the gtx 580 and i guess it performs beter . Also from those tests i can see 6870 as a good option so: 2x 470 580 2x 6870 the three options are more or less the same price , and then we have 2x 460 wich is 100$ cheaper . ewwww im so lost
  6. well , i've decided 2 wait for sandy bridge since it will be released in 20 days and for the same price than i7 950 ill have a much better cpu , ill have 2 change the mobo aswell and ill take a gtx 570 or 580 , theres 100$ diference between 570 and 580 do u think its worth it buying the 580?
  7. Well , im building a new gaming pc and i was wondering if u can help me chosing the gpu . This are my options: single gtx580 -500 $ single ftx 570 - 350$ single hd 6970- 320$ 2x hd 6870 - 260 (each)$ 2x gtx 470 - 260 (each)$ the question is , wich option should i pick? I've heard taht sli works beter then cf and also some people recomended me to buy the 580 even having elss performance than 2x gtx 470 in sli , and i heard too that says taht ati 6000 series drivers are fked up , so gimme your opinion pls ^ ^
  8. Would u recomend me any ram , i mean theres many kinds of ram and many prices , any clue? And thx for telling me about the h70 anything about the 2x 6870 drivers? everybody say they suck and that its beter to get 2x 470 or a single 570/580
  9. i live on a town lost in the forest in spain xD However , there was quite a few questions pls asnwer em all
  10. Id buy a monitor with 1920x 1080 resolution , im planing 2 do a ligh overcloking , ofc the machine will be capped for 2days games , but the plan is 2 have a good machine so i can use it for as many years as possible btw do u think i should wait for sandy bridge cpu and mobo? If so , would I have 2 change my build alot?
  11. 1500$ aprox budget. MOTHERBOARD My first doubt comes with the motherboard , id like to know if the second option is really worth it in this build since theres a diference of arround 50$ ASrock x58 Extreme 3 LGA Intel x58 SATA 6GB/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3067296&SID= Asus P6TD Deluxe LGA 1366 Intel x58 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3067296&SID= CPU Im so lost in here. so here are my options , cpus between 200/300$ , Id like 2 know wich is the best for gaming and the differences between them, from what i've read i I'm about to pick the i7 950 because aparently is better for gaming but im not sure since its an old cpu and the phenom II x6 1100 and 1090 are kinda new Phenom II x6 1100T http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103913 Phenom II x6 1090T http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849 Core i7-950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3067296&SID= VIDEO CARD In here i dont know what to pick , 2 gtx 470 in SLI or 2 HD 6870 in CROSSFIRE , from what i've read , the SLI works beter than the crossfire. GTX470 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3067296&SID= Also that gtx have the same price more or less than the hd 6870 wich I think its also a good option. Since i dont know wich brand i should buy in case of buying the 6870 i'll give u a list so u can tell me wich one would be beter. hd 6870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...d+6870&x=0&y=0 The main question is , what i should buy? 2x gtx 470 or 2x hd 6870? RAM I've chosed this ram since its 1.5V so i dont think it doesnt damage the cpu , however I dont know anything about ram so i might have picked a bad option: Also I wanna know if the ram will be able to keep up if i decide to overclock.
