I'm pretty much set on these parts. Unless they're a really bad choice, I won't switch them. I was thinking of the Vapor-X 7950, but it won't fit in my case. I'm not really sure what I want for the other parts.
The main goal is to get all the other parts, but manage to fit a decently sized SSD in as well, all for under $1000. I am not in a rush at all. Suggestions please?
No, I have nothing yet. I'm just planning for the future (should be pretty soon) when my crappy 6 year old computer breaks down. My parents said they're using it until it won't really work anymore, then I can a new one. These are the parts I plan on using.
Hi, the Corsair 300R is a better case, with better cable management and build quality, if you want a case with a futuristic look, get the nzxt(same brand but different model) phantom 410 or phantom full tower.
Hi, the corsair 300R can fit the 7950 vapor-x or other cards, but i would just get the sapphire 7950 new model, the one i listed.
The xfx 550 is a seasonic oem psu, it's as reliable as it gets, the sandisk brand is well known and it has a marvell controller, nothing to be worried about
Hi, it's the same as the non window case, the only difference is the side window.
The 7950 sapphire new model seems to be a good card, the cooling and overclocking will be about the same, i saw good things about it, but the main fact is it will give you the same performance and about the same cooling for less.
Fail! I just found out that that Newegg doesn't do international shipping. I'm in Canada, so I only have access to these cards. Would the MSI TwinFrozr be the best for the price out of these cards? http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=71
I had friends that had issues with that card i personally would not buy it.I would stick with the Sapphire's HD 7950 Vapor-X comes with a large dual-fan cooler that uses the company's famous vapor-chamber technology. On the Vapor-X you will also find a "Lethal Boost" button which switches to a second BIOS with higher clock speeds. With this BIOS, clocks are increased to 950 MHz GPU and 1250 MHz memory.
