More about thinkin putting super high
  1. I'm going to laugh when in 4 months your system will be outdated and be worth like half of what you payed for it, lol.
  2. i dont got a job even and i can afford it :), i live in norway the social state ya know... so its no problem really...
  3. How bout some more helpful advice like...

    First of all you're lopsided on the CPU to GPU. Depending on what you want to do of course.

    If it's gaming then the i7-930 will be more than adequate.

    1000W is excessive even for 2 5870s

    Your RAM is DDR-1333 CAS 9. You're better off going 1333 CAS 7 or 1600 CAS 9. Obviously the best would be 1600 CAS 7

    I'd get a SSD over a Raptor any day of the week personally.

    Unless you're an audiophile, the onboard HD Audio of the motherboard is more than adequate for good 7.1
  4. thanks, i will take that into consideration

    i was also lookin into a pre-built pc wich is,692778/Fujitsu-Celsius-Ultra-Worlds-fastest-gaming-PC-on-air-cooling/News/

    is the custom one better or the pre-built one, ofc there is difference in price im just curious.
  5. I can't access that site from work, blocked :(
  6. Manufacturer Fujitsu
    Product Celsius Ultra
    CPU Intel Core i7 Extreme 975
    Graphics card 2x EVGA Geforce GTX 295 Ultra Clocked
    Motherboard FTS D2778-X1, Chipset: Intel X58
    Memory 6 x Samsung 2,048 DDR3-1333
    PSU 1,000 W
    Hard Drive 1x WD Veloci Raptor 150 GByte and 10,000 rpm, 2x Seagate 1 TByte and 7,200 rpm
    Sound device Creative Titanium X-Fi
    Optical drive Blu-Ray drive + DVD writer combo (Multi Format)
    Operating system Windows Vista Business 64 Bit
  7. So here's the problem with a prebuilt

    So little information

    Who makes the PSU? How many rails does it have? Is it reliable?

    Seagate hard drives? Are they the 7200.11 hard drvies that had an extremely high failure rate?

    Also 295s are good but they arent DX11

    You can build a faster, more reliable PC yourself for cheaper.

    Just post your budget, intended use(ie HTPC, gaming, video editing, general use) and what you don't need (keyboard, mouse, monitor etc)

    And I'll put together a build for you from newegg links and you can kinda hunt around on your websites for the same items

    Does that sound good?
