As stated I live in greece where the trustable online shops I know offer only a fraction of the products available and in an elevated price.. So it would help tremendously if someone could help me in someway.. e.g. international trusted online shop shiping in greece if possible
Very very nice. Now i have some more questions..
Is the case big enough to support Crossfire AND triple channel kit at the same time? (for the future)
Is a newer motherboard that supports sata 3 and usb 3.0 maybe a better deal?
Thanks for your time..
That case is big. That mobo is AM3 high-end and has support for sata 3 and usb 3.0. Triple channel has only Intel's 1366 socket (more expensive) not a very important feature, just like the dual channel BTW.
I wouldn't crossfire a high-end card, just change it when that's needed but that's just me, others do it all the time.
For instance, the Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H is 66€ cheaper it runs a single video card at x16 and has crossfire x8 x8. Then you can get a less powerful and cheaper PSU if you don't crossfire.
For a total of 1646,79
I guess I am not going for Crossfire then..
Good, bad, overkill, underkill?
Anything to change before I order?
Also is a watercooling solution viable for stable overclocking?
If yes could I have any suggestions?
If you intend to overclock as well as CrossFire in the future, I would get a 750W-850W PSU. 650W is fine for now, but it is unlikely to be enough for an overclocked and CrossFired build.
The X6 1090T is more than you need right now, it's severe overkill for gaming. I would suggest just going with a Phenom II X4 955 or 965, as modern games are just starting to use 4 cores, and 6 cores is likely at least a few years off.
The 5870 should be more than enough to game with right now, and your motherboard is crossfire-capable if the 5870 crossfire is still viable in a couple of years.
In the US, the WD1002FAEX is more expensive than the similarly-performing Samsung Spinpoint F3 and the Seagate 7200.12, but I don't know if they're available in your area.
People will tell you that the Crosshair IV is overkill, and it probably is, but I have one, so I'm probably biased in favor of keeping it.
Watercooling is always viable, it's just significantly more expensive and a little riskier than air cooling. I can't recommend a water cooling solution that will fit your budget.
Yeah but WD1002FAEX is SATA III and samsung spinpoint f3 is SATA II. Doesn't that boost its performance?
And water cooling is out of the budget, maybe a gift from my grandpa ;-)
So any suggestions about that with a price range from 100-150 euro for the whole system?
The only mechanical hard drives that may need more than SATA II bandwidth are the newest WD Velociraptors, and if at all, only for very short bursts. If you want to go ahead and buy the WD1002FAEX, that's fine, but the SATA III doesn't provide any additional performance benefit. See this Anandtech article.
If you still have money left over, you could consider getting an SSD, perhaps. Or upgrading your graphics card or monitor.
I don't really have any strong opinions on water cooling, except that buying a cheap water cooling system is asking for trouble.
Ok, thanks I was just asking for your opinion.. So i drop the sata III and go for the spinpoint as you suggested and do some research on water cooling.. Thanks for all..
Oh and is Samsung SM-XL2370 LED Monitor 23'' http://www.plaisio.gr/Peripherals/PC-Monitors/Monitors/...
a better monitor worth the extra money?
Honestly, your best bet would to be to find a U.S. based company and just pay the extra shipping to have them ship it to you. I personally got mine from Ironside, and I paid much less than what you're looking at and for better specs, not considering this post is a year old, but still Ironside has good prices and you may want to take a look at their website Ironsidecomputers.com the next time you want a computer.
