More about opinions thought system build
  1. Hmm some info we need
    1. Where u getting your h/w ..possible to link to an online h/w site?
    2. Main use of rig and if gaming: what resolution
    3. Any current h/w that could be reused
    4. Max budget
    5. Try to hit an 80+ certified with active PFC PSU from Corsair, Antec, OCZ and if in Europe BeQuiet
  2. Linking the sites is hard since they would be in swedish + i'll be useing diffrent sites for almost every part...cheaper that way..

    Gaming at 1900x1200

    Current h/w is gaming laptop.. No luck im afraid!

    Mac budget in $ would be 1200 (or 1100 depending on that paycheck)
  3. Look to hit (in the GPU department) performance equalling or exceeding HD 5830

    The reason i choose the hd 5850 is http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/video_lookup.php?cpu=Radeon+HD+5850

    Everything ive read about it is positive...
  5. Yep just that your post stated Sapphire HD 5770 for consideration ^^ LGA 1156 also runs in dual channel so look for 2 x 2 DDR3 RAMs The $$ looks steep for me but if u can afford it ...
  6. Yes the 5770 is in case the money runs out.. Hopeing it wont..

    Thanks for the advice!
  7. You are welcomed ^^
