I saw a lot of sales going on right now. And wanted to ask if this is just as much performance i can get out of 1500$?

I saw some GREAT GREAT deals right now. Such as the Corsair 300R for just 50$!

750watt power for 50$!! Also a Extreme 3 for just 130$.

It's almost 100$ off in the end, and the parts are at it's all time lowest price. Can anymore think of any better or should i just order this now. Everyone looks great on this parts list to me

  1. Looks good to me, but do note that that's rather high ram and you will probably only be able to use slot 2 - 4 and not 1. That case will fit the GPU easy. Better will be to wait longer prices will go down eventually :p. But if you need it now, it looks awesome to me, game on!
  2. Can you please explain to me what you mean by rather high ram??? Are you saying that there's too many ram slots and i won't be able to use all of them?

    Also i just found this 1866hm 8GB ram for 10$ less?!!!!

    Never heard of a better RAM for less money wow. should i just get this one?
  3. He means the ram profile is too high, meaning physically the ram heat sink will be too tall and will touch the cpu cooler so you can only use the 2 and 4 slots that are not blocked by the cooler
  4. oh ok thank you.

    It should be fine as i've 2x4 8 GB.

    Thanks for the warning though.

    changed motherboard to asus
  6. is the asus board a lot better or something?
  7. Overall yes
  8. I saw that both boards support SLI and have a similar amount of ports.

    They're both from good companies. What am i getting that's better in the Asus board?

    Quality, Quality control, Drivers, Service, Bios, that's what's better at asus ;).
  10. Ok thanks. i guess i can get that Asus board.

    Only 10$ more. Though i have heard good things about the Asrock extreme series as well. Notably the Extreme 4 as the "Best Value Board"

    Also, you said something about waiting for the prices to go down??? I see around 100$ of reductions in prices, and the prices on the charts is at an all time low.

    I think newegg's having a sale or something. Not sure how can the prices get lower than this, unless the next generation of CPU/GPU comes out. Which won't happen for another few years

    Well as the components are rather new i expect them to drop further, but i could be wrong also so it's your bet ;).
  12. Alright thanks!

    This should be a beast of a PC. Much better than my old Laptop that i'm using now lol.

    I'm all set to SLI a second 770 should i need to in the future as well :) should sustain me for the next 4-5 years
