  1. @ Fogel thank you for the heads up about the SSD's und som tips/hints of how to use them. I dont run solo SSD though I did buy a WD Caviar Green as a storage disk. although I had to pay 3 times as much for it as I would a weak ago. had to down grade the memory from 16 to 8 GB and no SLI for me ether, will have to purchase that later and for the SSD I have bought, it is a Corsair SSD Force Series™ 3, 120GB so it is quite new and should work quite well I hope @ Tjj226_Angel I know that most of the firmware problems have been resolved but acting out of Fogels words is still not a bad idea I think as there still may be some faults yet unresolved although I truly hope there aren't PS: have edited the first post with the final build with the parts that I have bought
  2. Thank you,Tjj226_Angel, medbor and Fogel I have chosen to go with an SSD as boot disk slightly because of you guys, and much because I compared the performance a bit more. sadly the normal HDDs have tripled in price here so no raid atm and no sli or Xfire either. (the SSD is cheaper than the HDD now :S) so thank you all really much for your comments and help, I have now bought it and I'm awaiting it by mail soon. cya later Shin Ookami
  3. thanks ill get my pay in 7 days so I hope its enough and i want it to be a really good computer that I wont have to change in the next 3 years but that I can oppgrade instead
  4. Ok. @ paulktreg: thank you for telling me about the SSD information , and thank you a lot for recommending the other Motherboard's and adding links to them. @wevsspot: you was asking me what country I live in, I live in Norway, we do have most of the components that exist in the rest of the world the only difference is the pricetag. and of course I will be going 64bit win7, although I also intend to try Linux, see if I find a liking to it about the memory speed I chose ddr3-2000 to be able to play with the primary memory timings if I wanted and to have some o/c headroom, but thank you for bringing it to my attention (I think I will down scale it a notch). Also thank you for telling me in a bit more detail about the difference in performances between sli and Xfire and as I stated in my previous post the choice about single or multiple GPU is totally dependent on economy, but if it do have the economy for it I will know now that I should go for 2 AMD cards and not double Nvidia and lastly @ medbor: regarding the SSD, I know that in performance it is better but I have the price to think about (a little at least) and the cheapest 60GB SSD on the market I can find here in Norway costs almost the same as the 300GB VelociRaptor, this is what pulls me towards the Velo HDD rather than the SSD and thank you for opening the SLI, Xfire scaling difference "discussion" - - - - - - - - now I will add an updated list of the components as it now stands, due to your help. PSU:----------------Corsair AX 850W Motherboard:----Asus P8Z68-V PRO CPU:---------------Intel I7 2600K GPU:---------------EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1280 MB / Asus Radeon HD 6950 DCII (if Multi GPU) RAM:---------------Kingston HyperX PnP DDR3-1866MHz (16 GB, 4 modules) Storage:-----------Western Digital VelociRaptor 300 GB -----------------------Western Digital AV-GP 2TB SATA, 32 MB cache Optical drive: ---LiteOn IHOS104-37 Cabinet:-----------NZXT Phantom if there is anything anything you feel could be upgraded without a huge increase in price don't hesitate to reply Shin Ookami
  5. thank you, Black6464 and cery25 @ Black6464 about the sli I am uncertain (atm I only have room for 1 screen) its mostly going to depend on my economy if I go sli right away or after a while, but I do have the intention of sli yes, also thank you for clarifying the cabinet question for me @ cery25 the reason I run with the velociraptor is mostly due to the price I get 2.5 velo drives for the same price as 1 ssd of about the same size, and last time I checked the SSD's loses space when deleting /overwriting content causing them to after some time being only "readable" drives not "writeable" also thank you for telling me about the RAM - - - - - - - although I am still uncertain about the motherboard, if you were to suggest a motherboard for a "power-user" with the components specified which would it be? again thank you for the help so far and in the future Shin Ookami
  6. hey, I am quite new to all this pc building and stuff but I feel quite confident in myself (have always been a computer geek and I am a philomath) i have seen and bin part of the building of a cuple of comuters and i have also read some opp on it anyway on to topic, I am intending to build myself a new desktop computer and I want some advice. so far the build I have sett up is as follows: PSU:---------------Corsair AX 850W Motherboard:----ASUS P8Z68-V PRO, Socket-1155 CPU:---------------Intel I7 2600K GPU:---------------EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1280 MB second card will be bought later for SLI RAM:---------------Kingston DDR3 HyperX PnP 1866MHz 8GB DDR3, CL11-11-11-30 Storage:-----------Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 120GB OS Disc SATA 3 Support -----------------------Western Digital Caviar® Green 2TB Storage Disk SATA 3 Support, 64MB cache Optical drive: ---LiteOn IHOS104-37 Cabinet:-----------NZXT Phantom total pricetag, 2685 USD (don't let this price get to you, I don't live in the US so the prices really don't match, most components are more expensive here) first thing I want to know is what you guys think about the build as of above? good? bad? waste? any components that absolutely should be changed? it will mostly be used for gaming but also for some 3D rendering next is that I am uncertain of the motherboard, I want a good motherboard with good functionality, space and connections, I feel the DP67BG has this (from one of OCC's reviews) although I know Intel isn't known for there good motherboards , but is there any better motherboards out there which have the same types/amount of connections, and that is also easy to "manipulate" (OC and so on) of coarse additional features are a plus most of the time Lastly its the cabinet I am slightly uncertain about,the main reasons I choose it is because of the integrated fan control, size and the look, but does any one know how its airflow is, is it a good cabinet or is there any that are that much better? Thank you in advance guys/gals for any help you may offer EDIT: updated the build posted here to its final state (as purchased Also updated price tag) Shin Ookami
  7. ok, thank you medbor then ill put this question opp in a new thread,
