  1. I just saw this on the front page of OCC's website and entered. I hope I win. This will definitely help me reduce a bit of cost in the upcoming months when I build my new rig. Good luck to every one who has entered.
  2. Thanks for all the responses, I really appreciate the help. I will mostly be using it for gaming. The NVIDIA chipset is about $15 cheaper. Although I would like to buy the 3.0 PCI-E cards, the Radeon 7xxx series is out of my price range at the moment. I am looking to pay in the mid-low 200 for a GPU. Edit: Both cards are 1GB.
  3. Thanks for the feedback. Is the onboard sound good for gaming? Because I rely heavily on sound (footsteps and such) while gaming. I am leaning more towards the 6950 because of the dual bios and the better cooling of the TF III.
  4. No... This is not a "Premium build" it is Premium's build. CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K (Should I buy? Should I wait until April 8th for IB?) MOBO: Asus P8Z68-V PRO Gen3 Asus P8Z68-V GPU: MSI Radeon HD 6950 R6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC or MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC PSU: Seasonic X750 RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB G. Skill Sniper 2 x 4GB low profile (1.25v) Sound: Asus Xonar DX 7.1 Heatsink: 212 Evo Noctua NH-D14 Case: Cooler Master HAF-X Cooler Master Storm Trooper SSD: Corsair Force Series 3 90GB Plextor 128GB M3 Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Green = Purchased Orange = In the process of placing the order in the next week or so White = Undetermined ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please give me some feedback on my build. Thanks. Even though I have purchased many of the parts, I am willing to sell them back out (to avoid the 15% restocking fee), if the alternatives' performance warrants it. Thus, do not be reluctant to voice your opinions and thoughts.
  5. I am looking to build a new rig and cannot decide between these two video cards: MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC and MSI Radeon HD 6950 R6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC. (I am leaning more towards the 6950). Which one do you think is better and why? I look forward to people's replies.
