1) the i7-980X is a waste of money, for gaming the i7-930 works just fine especially when OC'ed to 3.6-4.0GHz (your range may vary)
2) IMO the intel SSD's aren't that great anymore with their sustained 70MB/s write speed, grab an OC Vertex II (100GB should be plenty)
3) Grab a data drive, the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB is fast and large enough for all of the games (and probably data)
4) ditch the DDR3-2000 it makes no difference, grab a kit of G.Skill DDR3-1600 CL7 memory
5) not a fan of Fortron PSU's, i would grab a Corsair 850HX as it is enough power for this build with 2 x 5970's
6) don't get a sound card until you hear the onboard sound, it might be good enough for you
tho i am not sure about the sound card as mentioned card is according to this review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOCbuYfvW-U
all about stereo sound.
Tho i wnat to get out 7.1 as i play alsot of games and i wach dvd movies etc.
So i dont know what soundcard is best for games and movies.
As i thinked to get Cosmos S case i wonder will all that stuff fitt in there.I mean as the CPU cooler.
As i do not know yet dose the shop where i am ordering cooler has mentioned cooler can somone ho knows give me smal list for CPU coolers that i can trust as i am gona overclock I7
Frostytech tests a lot of heatsinks, the page is for the Top 10 one chart each for AMD and Intel, though the Intel is S775 tests i would imagine it would be pretty respectable for LGA1366 as well, if you look around and read some reviews, you will find a large chart that includes each heatsink they have reviewed
a.) Datasheet (34nm product line)
b.) Datasheet (50nm product line)
What dose mean nm?
and how do i know wich product line im looking at when i am buying ssd?
Ifi look at 34nm product line it will open up a pdf doc where i can see that
Intel® X25-M and X18-M Mainstream SATA Solid-State (as i understand it is same as i posted at start) has write speedon 160 GB SSD drive is up to 100MB/s
and read speed 250MB/s tho OCZ Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" SSD has
Max Read: up to 285MB/s
Max Write: up to 275MB/s
Sustained Write: up to 250MB/s
Random Write 4KB (Aligned): 50,000 IOPS
it is alot better
i will know monday that if i can order OCZ Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" SSD from shop where i am ordering my PC or i realy need to order SSD elswhere.
Odd is that intel SSD costs more then OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) tho OCZ SSD stats look way better
I want very fast computer with ultrafast load time(for example boot time, load time, installation time on any soft or game, scanning with virus program etc)
Same time i want computer with verry good Graphics card.
(crysis on relistic mode all maxed out with no lag) and any other game
I do not yet know what monitor to get.
I wold prefer 27 inch
I did look at:
Product code: VX2739WM
I did read on one review that ViewSonic VX2433wm has low color.(in games for example wow colors where like washed out).I know that this monitor has 1ms response time tho Samsung 27" LCD SyncMaster P2770H ihas 2ms response time.
and this is not big difrence.
I did think about to get Black eddition card.
XFX RADEON HD 5970 2GB OC
Product code: HD-597A-CNB9
tho i dont know how big difrence there is (exept price) on
Sapphire RADEON HD 5970 2GB
Product code: 21165-00-51R
Question about memory:
Corsair DDR3 PC-16000 2000MHz 3GB CL8 (8-8-8-24)(KIT of 3x2GB) DHX CMG6GX3M3A2000C8 3x240 DIMM, Unbuffered, 8-8-8-24. Dominator GT with DHX+ and Airflow 2 Fan, Supports Intel Core I7
Product code: CMG6GX3M3A2000C8
should i get instead a
Corsair DDR3 PC-15000 1866MHz 6GB CL9 (9-9-9-24)(KIT OF 3 - 2GB)
Product code: TR3X6G1866C9DF
And if i should get lower i7 version what should it be?
Intel Core i7 960 3.20 GHz Socket LGA1366
Product code: BX80616I5680
if you go to a lower i7 get the i7-930 as it can be regularly clocked to 3.6-4.0GHz (does depend a bit on luck, but that would happen even with the i7-980X) and personally i don't think you will notice a difference between the 930 and 980X (as this looks to be a gaming build)
for memory i would recommend the CL7 DDR3-1600
now here's this thing, with a single 5970 this computer could easily use a 650w PSU from good company, though if you decide to get the i7-930 instead of the i7-980X you could afford another 5970 and then get a 950w+ PSU from a good company (suggestions are Corsair, Seasonic, OCZ, Antec and a few others)
as for loading applications, that will be entirely dependent on the HDD subsystem and with an SSD its usually a moot point, and anything loaded off of the internal data drive will be fast since the OS isn't reading and writing to and from it
why not go for the tower:
Intel Core i7-930
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Asus Rampage III
G.Skill Ripjaws 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3-1600 CL8
3 x EVGA GTX480
Cooler Master HAF 932
OCZ Vertex 120GB
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
And any cheap DVD RW drive (usually around $20)
this should be about the same as you initial build (first post)
Power suply: Fortron EVEREST 1010W (80PLUS) ATX12V v2.2, EPS 12
Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster P277OH (27 inch LCD / HD)
Hard drive: OCZ Technology SSD 120GB VERTEX 2 SATA II
Product code: OCZ Technology OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G
What is best processor for this setup?
