Plus this is 70% for my dad so do you think he would appreciate it? Because he'll be doing a lot of work on it so I dont want him to wast $1000 on some shitty sony and have it screw over. We are going to salvage usable parts from the shitty sony that we had like Blu ray drive writting drive etc...


Reasonable?

Please give all advice!

  1. WHY DO I ALWAYS Get 0 answers!
  2. I recommend another 500GB speedy drive for the OS.

    Like a samsung spinpoint F3 500GB. They cost like 59.99

    Placing your OS on a 1.5TB drive, especially a caviar green for 1 defeats the green aspect as it isn't alowed to go "dormant"

    Also without your monitor size/resolution it's hard to say if the 5770 will be adequate.

    And for the 0 answers complaint, its 3 AM, what did you expect?
  3. oh well i m in vacation half way across the world! LOL i keep thinking its 3 pm cuz it sorta is
  4. um so screw the 1.5tb? and get two 500gb?
  5. Oh and again this pc is for my dad hes not going to be running it at max resolution all the time. I will...
  6. Depends. I for one enjoy having a 1.5TB media drive for my music and DVDs.

    I'd look at a 500GB OS/program drive, and a 1-1.5TB media Drive.

    But once again, whats the monitor resolution, and what games do you intend to play?
  7. First of all if I DO get to use it world of warcraft, crysis, TES4, ABP
  8. and the screen resolution like 1440x1026 sumtin like that dont quote me on it.
    And will it be good for my dads work? Just emailing some xml powerpoints?
  9. Well salvage the HDD from his sony for the os so yea
  10. WoW it will do fine, Crysis meh, the other ones I don't recognize the acronym. Yes it will be fine for any work your dad my want to do.
  11. Good call, I dont really see anything to improve upon considering the intent of the build. Enjoy.
  12. OH one final question will that atx case fit my mobo?
  13. PS
    TES4 the elder scrolls 4 (oblivion)
    ABP All points bulletin
  14. Will my psu power the whole case and system?
  15. blackhade said:



    Get the GTX 460, its more powerful but a little cheaper than the 5830.
    (I kno i always post to get the GTX 460, but I am not a NVIDIA fanboy, I have a 5870, Actually, i am more of a ATI fanboy...)

    Besides my rambling, The GTX 460 is a better bang for your buck card
  16. Dude its 768mb?
  17. dbq12 plz helpzme!
  18. Yes and no

    There are two versions, the 1 gb (which is the better version) and 768mb versin of the card. Both are really good, and the 786 mb is on par/ba little better than the 5830, but the 1 gb is the way to go.

    read this - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-460-gf104-fermi,2684.html
  19. oh and yes it the mobo should fit in the case
  20. can youhelp me WITH the CASe plz!!
  21. i did....
  22. also, check this out, you save about 30 dollar buy using this

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.435003
  23. but the silver backing doesnt match up with all the ports on the mobo!
  24. the 5830 is 30 dollars cheaper on newegg
  25. ah lol thanks and yeah look at rear view of case youll see why im in distress
  26. also on your psu, it should be good enough but

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005

    $70 after rebate, u will be able to have expansion room for later upgrades such as SLI and whatever you want to do. Corsair is a very well trusted and well known brand.
  27. whats wrong with it (if you are not talking bout the I/O shield)
  28. it can come off (should)
  29. thanks for all the help dude!
  30. Here revised setup for my dad and me

  31. that Psu might ( i am not sure) not power everything
  32. I'd recommend the OCZ ModXstream 700W. It's inexpensive, modular and quite good. Also I owned the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler
    and it was complete garbage. I can't say enough bad things about it.
  33. Yeah thats the one, thanks dbq12, also if you arent going to overclock you won't even need an aftermarket HSF.
  34. That was the 600w in the earlier post

    This is the 700W
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018
  35. and where are you buying the parts.... because i see you have taxes on there and newegg doesn't have taxes (unless u live in California)
  36. i live in new jersey so there are taces
  37. oh that sucks.

    but get the psu cmcghee358 is recommending
  38. wats an hsf?
  39. hsf = heat sink fan
  40. with the 600W that you posted will that power my whole setup and im guessing a hsf is a cpu cooler?
  41. kk so not ocing since it is my dads pc is the case two gaudy for a 47 year old man?
  42. alos im not familiar with heatsinks and fans sry, i just use stock, but i suggest u should too, unless you overclocking it. But I am OCing my psu from 2.8 to 3.4 on stock heatsink+fan
  43. so the 600w can power my system?
  44. and it should power your system
