I personally find the i7 860 nothing superb. Hopefully that PSU can hold up.. Does that mean your upgrade for W7 is only 32 bit also?

There is alot of debate over 1336 vs 1156 and I personally went with the 1156 due to recommendations by friends.

Also I corrected the post, Its 64 bit for the same price, thanks for catching that!

I would say it looks like a solid build nontheless. I was shown these Samsung F3's before http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would have to say they level up on the size to performance with the BC 640 double platers. Also, it seems that they run alot cooler too. I did notice this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm not too sure about the timings but it would seem interesting to tinker with for the price.

Also, though I do love nvidia very much so.. I wouldn't get a 275 unless I was going to at some point or another plan on doing sli with it. 4870-90's pretty much solidify for the price/performance for a single GPU or if you were staying with a single Nvidia I would go with a 285~ Just my thoughts on that.. My nvidia needs to step it up next year!

Thanks for the input, that drive looks nice and so does the ram, however I have to stay under 1300 dollars (I was suppose to stay under 1200 but I came up with some extra cash).. eitherway the drives seem comparable and since I have a 1.5tb NAS enclosure setup at my house I am not worried about drive space, hence I will save the 15 dollars.

As for the ram, again money, and I cant afford the extra 30 dollars currently. Thanks for the input syranni.

You could drop that 275 then and pickup a 4870 and that would be around roughly around $50 or so you would save :)

There is no real reason for me to stick with nvidia other then the fact that I have always used them and never had a problem. Also the evga warrenties and what not are nice. I havnt looked at the 4870-90s, but I dont really plan to. I guess its me being selfish :na:  but I will stick with my 275 :D  Plus i may be doing sli within 2-4months when I get a nice big monitor that can run 1900 x 1200.

something that was suggested to me was to get a display that would monitor the temps of my computer and how fast the fans were spinning and all that jazz.. Anyone know of a good one that would fit in the case I have selected?

Not a bad build...not bad at all cg. :) 

I know EVGA has great support, but here's a build you might consider if your ever interested in going with a dual card set up (SLI/Crossfire). This case down below has more room than the Antec 900, it has ample power in this psu to run dual gtx 275's, not to mention it includes a decent h/s w/thermal paste. This build will allow you to do a decent o/c. Also this build includes a factory o/c gtx 275. This h/d down below is a hair quicker than that WD 640 Black you have in your build. But I do like that build of yours for a single card set up. Although the 860 may be a bit of an over kill for gaming.

Dang you, I made a new post to get your attention.. lol

Anyway, will my build not be able to fit two gpus in the future? Also back to those micro mobos lol... Anyway man I think I could fit 2 gpus with my current setup but in 4 - 6 months when I want or need to I could always grab a new case..

The only honest reason I like the case I chose is because i like how it looks more then the HAF and I have heard nothing but godly reviews of it...

Oh and Why_me..

I was told it might be a good idea to get a temp monitor of some kind so if anyone has some suggestions for the future? I really don't know which kind would work for my computer and which would work with my case.. I have been suggested the following 2: (dont know which ones good, which ones bad, don't know anything about them, they were just suggestions given to me... So any advice would be nice)

I don't see any mATX boards on this thread...unless my eyes are going bad. :heink:  That Asus is a full size mobo that o/c's like a beast. :) 

The thing with the Antec 900 is it's size. It's a great case for a single card set up, but with dual cards it's a bit cramped, not to mention it's bit narrow when it comes to putting in a decent size h/s. That and a 650 will not push dual 275's to my knowledge. A quality 750w is about as low as you want to go for two of those cards.

For a larger case that looks like the 900, try the Antec 1200. Also Lian Li has a case that looks very similar to the 900 and it has more room. I think it goes for about $120 on newegg.

September 21, 2009 3:00:40 AM

I keep misreading the Haf thing that says mATX lol.. Anyway I dont see myself honestly ever needing dual vid cards unless like d3, sc2, and wow will need them.. Also I have no idea how to OC and for now I dont really know if I want to or even need to... I have heard way to many horror stories about it honestly.

What would dual graphics cards really provide me in those games honestly? I do do some graphics but were talking photo shop, in design, illustrator, etc... nothing to fancy...

And about the temp monitors I posted above?

I will do another look at the cases but unless there a reason besides dual cards (or unless I am given a reason I would need dual cards) I will prob stay with what I have... Is a 650 enough for my current build?

Umm my build is i7? Look at the original post.. i7 860 lol.. My res size is currently 1024 x 768 but I can go up to i think like 1600 x 900 or 1000 or something? I am not home so I cant check. Why? Also I run my stuff down at like 1024 because for some reason with wow I like it better.. I havnt actually tried high res cause last time, with Counter strike.. It made everything 100x smaller then with 1024 x 768 or even 800 x 600 so I have to play with that more...

To your later post.. whats a widget?

thermal paste is what you put on TOP of the CPU so the air gaps will be resolved when putting down the HEATSINK. results in CPU COOLER (LOWER TEMPS)

oops I MEANT i7 920. not the i7 860 with p55 mobo.

a widget is just a small problem monitors the temps.

no need to get a gtx 275 video card if you are running at that resolution, unless you upgrade monitor. you are just wasting money

Does it also allow control of speeds and show speeds, etc?

Also I plan to get a new monitor in the future(few months at most?) and I like the 1156 vs the 1336 due to recommendations by a lot of my friends that work in the industry. I cant imagine its going anywhere for years anyway so I don't see it as a problem... /shrug..

"I cant imagine its going anywhere for years anyway so I don't see it as a problem... /shrug"


1156 will likely be replaced by 1155 next year. your friends in the industry dont know what future proof is huh? i7 920 will future proof you.

I meant the thermal paste or whatever.. I have no idea what it is or where to get it.

As for it going somewhere.. I really hope not, I dunno why but something really has just attracted me to the 1156 over the 1336 but I will research a bit more...

As for the control and viewing.. I just want to be able to see my temps and make sure the fans are operating correctly, the computer isn't over heating, etc.

just download the program "Speedfan" or "realtemp" for temps viewing. you dont need to worry too much about this man, unless you overclock, which i dont think you are

thermal paste, is it that hard to type it in newegg?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

and again going with i7 920 will future proof against i7 860 because it uses X58 motherboards. which intel will release the CLARKDALES ON

Ha ha I did that and thought it was the wrong thing.. Didn't realize it was literally a paste I thought it was some type of hardware... i'm retarded its ok.. Anyway thanks for the tips in that case, I don't plan to OC right now but I keep hearing a lot of suggestions for it and may give it a try at a later date.. Its not something that has to be done right away is it?

you can do it any time you feel like it.
also read articles on how to overclock, temperatures. ..etc
the gtx 275 is overkill right now for your resolution
also think about the i7 920 build instead.

that's an invalid link, i guess its thermal paste.

they are all decent, one of the best would be arctic silver 5
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

theres a lot of read about, even how to apply thermal paste, overclocking is easy once you have the knowledge and you will be be amused by the extra performance at no extra cost.

btw Why_me pointed this out.. I forgot to mention that I am receiving 100 dollars off on the i7 860 processor which is why I am fighting for it so much.. the final cost without tax for me is 183.99 (due to a coupon a friend of mine has)... I thought i mentioned that.... My build has to be under 1200 with tax which, with that coupon, it is.


why_me's i7 build will future proof more. less than 900 dollars without video card i think

I admit I didn't read everyone's proto build, but if you are going to go through the time and expense of a entirely new build get the i7 920. The cost is not that much different than the 860 you cited at first. Do it you know you wanna. If you don't you'll be sorry.

I don't believe I will be sorry because, first I am not O/Cing, and second I am getting the 860 for 100 dollars off and therefore makes it a better deal.
