    Antec 1200 .... best way to buy it is in this combo if ya need a PSU.

    Save a whole lotta money by buying the P6X58D-E over the P6X58D .... and again, best way to buy it is in a combo for example w/ i7-930:

    or with the 980

    Consider getting the 930 and overclocking it to 980 speeds.

    I would start w/ 6 GB of this CAS 6 RAM and only add the 2nd 6 if determined to be necessary.

    Don't understand the 2 BFG 285's making tri sli....I'd get the current card in dual SLI

    If you are going to be doing serious overclocking, I'd switch to the R3E
  2. Get the Antec 1200 and the ASUS p6x58d. Antec cases are really quiet and have plenty of room they are also built really solid.
  3. Thank you I am some what new at all this I'm not as good as most on here money is not a problem I wanna build a super computer so I don't have to upgrade every year unless nasescary why do you say the antec is better then the abs? On the ram I wanna get a 24 gb of ram I know i would never need it but I want a super comp lol . But starting out at 12 gb first .so with that in mind can you give me a low down on what I should get to make it the best please thanks alot for you input and help
  4. Might do a little ocing but not much but still want to get the best stuff. I produce music play games and edit videos on my pc so that's why I'm going over kill and all that. A 1000 watt power supple should be the best right or more?
  5. Oh ok antec it is then lol also on video cards I wanted to get 2 bfg 285 gtx 2 gb cards is there better or should I be good with that?
  6. If I had to pick one of the two cases that were mentioned, then I would choose the Antec 1200. Ventilation, airflow, and cooling are very very good. It is a classic case that you buy and then keep for a long time.

    The general rule of thumb is a high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the +12 volt rail(s) can easily power a system with any single video card made. A high quality 700 to 750 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the +12 volt rail(s) can power a system with two video cards operating in dual mode. There are a few exceptions like the new ATI Radeon HD 5XXX series cards which use less power due to their energy efficiency.

    A high quality 500 to 550 watt psu will have a +12 volt rail rated at 40 amps. A high quality 700 to 750 watt psu will have a +12 volt rail rated at 60 amps.

    In addition the power supply should be at least 80+ Bronze certified for energy efficiency. There are some models available which have achieved 80+ Silver and 80+ Gold Certifications.

    Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty.

    You would be much better off with a pair of ATI 5850's. The 285's are great cards but are only Direct X 10 since you are building new and you want the best tech so you dont have to upgrade for awhile go for the HD 5850's

    The hd 5850 will perform a little better then the 285's and also brings direct x 11 into it.
  8. is there any better video cards out i like the whole bfg 285 2 gb thing, is other cards like that that are better , why is the ati 5850 better the the 285 if the 285 has 2 gb on it?
  9. and can someone help me out on a router i have right now a netgear wnd3300 and it sucks. lol i need something thats faster and newer im guessing, i keep losing my net connection, and comcast says that its not them . they keep saying its the router.
    thanks guys sorry for teh double posts and so many questions , but since im trying to get the best of the best , i ask alot of questions. so please bare with me. thank you
  10. ok, so as evryone has said, get the antec 1200 case. i would also suggest dual radeon hd 5850s, or if u want to splurge, get a radeon 5970 which is a dual-gpu card, so its like 2 cards in one!
    i would get 6gb ram and see if that works fine for you. i run several copmuters on 1gb and less (win7 and xp). you could get the core i7-980x cpu. it has 6 cores, and ocs quite well. though amd is a better value, intels usually have better performance pe rclock speed.
  11. about the router: toms hardware made an article stating that comcast was rated the worst company in usa award! i think u can figure it out from there.
    of course, you could just get this:
  12. oh ok cool thanks so 2 radeon 5970 would be better then 2 bfg 285s?or is there better?

    ya im gonna go with 2 radeon 5970 hd 2 gb cards
  13. afaik radeon 5970s are the best out there!
  14. yay!!! ok yeah as i said in the above post dual 5970s will be so phenomenal!
  15. oh ok then thats was up, antec 1200 case is the best and the azus P6X58D . or do you recomend something better
    i like the abs case canyon 595 but it was between the antec 1200 and the abs.
  16. imo antec!
  17. with a 1000watt power supply
    should be enough power
  18. definitely! which 1000w psu are you looking at?
    since you probably wont be needing 1000+watts, i recommend this:
    it is a very good psu, and can peak to at least 1000w if not a little more.
  19. 2 5970's is way overkill for almost anything what res you gonna play at? The 2 5850's or even just 1 5970 is more then enough power in GPU's.
  20. ya i know , but i wanna be prepared for the future, i rather have more then i need the have to little. power or any thing really
  21. How many monitors do you intend to drive?
  22. sure its overkill but its definitely futureproofed and you can say you have dual 5970s LOL
  23. ya true. lol . right now just one monitor. i have a 22" looking to get 3 42 " ones though
  24. Hey guys ok looking at the radeon 5970 not sure what model is the best and another question I rather have a bfg geforce card is there a card that compares or is better then the radeon one? Thank you

    also was looking at three mother boards what one is the best asus p6x58d prem , asus rampage 3 extreme and asus p6t7 ws supercomputer thanks
