hello all - now i am all set to build a new computer [monitor, keyboard and mouse included] and at first i thought of getting one centred around the rampage ii extreme and the i7 920 but apparently there are cheaper options out there with the lga 1156 [thanks to 'build' for tipping me on this] which will let me spend more on things like graphics card, case, monitor. can anyone give me some good ideas for my build?
awww thanks again build! btw good store you have there! its got some really cheap parts compared to the chain stores so what im gonna do is order the things that are cheapest from there and the rest ill get it from my local dealer. btw is that psu going to be good in crossfire [when i add the next 5850 a few months down the line]? and yeah the monitor is included in the 1100 euros [though im gonna get keyboard/mouse from here as im used to the french keyboard system lol]
thanks build!!! ill order tomorrow morning omg cant wait!!!
ummmm the two best that most people use here are: www.grossbill.com www.surcouf.com
prices are quite similiar lol oh well guess thats the eu for you.
so in the end i ended up ordering everything from that site except the graphics card cuz they didnt have it in stock!!! lol i was dissapointed but one good thing is that i went back to my local store today and they had 4870 x2's at sale for 230 euros and gainward gtx 295's at 290 euros. do you think i should get one of these build? or what about going back to my original idea of dual 4890's for 270 euros?
Yeah it's very hard to find 5850's/5870's currently. If you're really in need of a graphics card, the 4890 would be the better alternative. I have one and it can play any game I throw at it on my 1920x1080 resolution monitor. You could get one 4890 for now and just add a second one later on. It will be probably go down in price a bit more in the coming months.
