lol its almost impssible to max crysis.... i dont think that u need that system... u can max with this:

phenom ii x4 955

m4a89gtd pro/usb3

4gb ddr3 1600mhz cl7

samsung spinpoint f3 1tb

xfx black edition 850w

noctua nh-d14

case... ur choise... but thatone has vry bad cooling.. its made to make full watercooling...
tel me wath things u want on a case and i can recomend u someones...

soundcard... (if u really think u will notice the diference... its better to spend the moeny on a good pair of headphones) asus xonar dx

pd: u will be able to play crysis but in some parts the fps will be lower than 25(in dificult parts)

Go for two GTX 460s in SLI, and a 6gb DDR3 triple channel RAM kit. DDR2 is not what you want. And honestly, that motherboard is overkill. Look at the Gigabyte X58A-UD3R. Those Rampage boards are not for someone who specs DDR2 in their X58 build... trust me.

Really H70? Custom water is the way to go!
September 21, 2010 3:00:36 AM

The vantage? Really? The rest of your stuff is gonna be red hot.. get some custom water or a good case.

Ok the reason is that i considered the h70 is becouse i am not experienced with Water Cooling, so if i have to make a custom one, forget it.. Never made my one WC system
Unless you could reccomend me the BEST Coolers for the gpu, Cpu, ram...... i have no idea
Please tell me the Coolers i should have in this case (Price doesnt matter)

well a good beginners water cooling would be one of swiftechs pre made kits other then that its a huge amount of research but its worth it to get the best of the best

Ok choosen the H2O-220 Ultima But now its about 50 dollars over my budget, so i am thinking of buying this powersupple instead:
Chieftec Super Series CFT-1200G-DF 1200Watt
Is this PSU any good?
September 21, 2010 5:11:31 PM

chieftec is a mixed bag of thing some good some bad but do you really need 1.2kw?

No but in the future i will have to upgrade to a higher watt psu.
All i really want to know is if it will last me for 2 years cause by then i will prob change lots of parts.

well the trend is toward less power usage accept nvidia they always seem to pull a carrot out of their ass,they saiying the next evolution will have lower power

ati lowered power usage with the 5 series
intel is throwing the lower power usage monikers with sandy bridge due next year
amd sending the same signals with bulldozer

i would personally stick to 1 kw it should last well past 2 years unless you planning something crazy like 3 - 4 hey maybe more card capable in future but you'd be hard pressed to max 1000 watts with 2 cards and some crazy overclocking

here is a nice 1kw at a good price

Ok dude, here is the different PSU choices i have:
(Please tell me the best one of theese, dont think about wattage and ***, i just want to know the one with best performance)
Chieftec A-135 Series APS-1000C - 1 kW
Chieftec Super Series CFT-1200G-DF - 1.2 kW
Corsair Professional Series HX1000W - 1 kW

The reason the PSU's are limited, is becouse i live in Norway :p 
but theese are the only ones over 900w
So im thinking the Corsair OFC! but i dunno what do u think?
September 21, 2010 6:53:12 PM

September 21, 2010 7:12:24 PM
