Please review my new gaming rig! Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Product Last response: June 29, 2010 2:03 PM in Systems Share MMcardle44 June 29, 2010 1:07:18 PM Hey all, building a new gaming rig soon and wanted some opinions on my part selections I figured the easiest way to do this would be to link to all the components on newegg: CPU: Intel i-5 Quad Core Motherboard: ASUS Maximus III Formula Video Card: Radeon 5850 RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaw 4GB PSU: Corsair 750W Case: Thermaltake Element V Everything else I have covered. Thanks for any advice you have. More about : review gaming rig MadAdmiral a b 4 Gaming June 29, 2010 1:44:56 PM Ditch the Formula board for an Asus P7P55D-E Pro. It's a lot cheaper and you don't lose any useful features. Switch the RAM for etiher the G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 CAS Latency 7 or similar Eco sticks. Get the Eco sticks if they're not more expensive. Both sets are faster than than the ones you choose. Here's a slightly cheaper 5850. It's still an XFX card, but just get whatever brand is cheapest. There isn't any difference between the different brands. banthracis a b 4 Gaming June 29, 2010 1:57:30 PM Do you need an optical drive? This combo for the 5850 will save you another $3 and net you a free power strip http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Curious why you went with the V. It's basically just a taller G that goes back to using 120mm fans (wtf? y?) so it's same airflow for more noise. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer MadAdmiral a b 4 Gaming June 29, 2010 2:03:40 PM Awesome combo. I'm willing to bet that disappears soon though. Newegg doesn't like to keep free stuff up long. Can't find your answer ?
