More about : hope configure

well I waited, and researched long enough that the 580 is released.

Q1: when I choose only one card - do I choose sli any way --- or not?

I still do not know the difference between a pcl and a pcle

Q2: I have always had a good quality stand alone audio card, and I would still like to have one (aganist almost all advice) Do I choose a pcl or a pcle?

I have been told that a 1200 W powersupply is too much so I have reduced it to 850W --- I do not wish to run any PS over 70% load --- I hope that 850 is not too small.

Q3 : I wanted to add some USB-3 access points, there is only one in the front (and I cannot find anything that says there is another one at the back (I went to http://www.azzatek.com/Product-Case-Hurrican2000.asp --- I do not see where they give me that spec!)

so I added -Asus U3S6 True 2 x USB 3.0 & 2 x SATA-III PCIe X4 Expansion Card

comments?

I would like to be able to send signals to a TV set and so (If there is room) I would like to add :AverMedia AVerTV Dual Tuner :

New to this I'm assuming, but no worries.
The USB ports will come from the mobo. the back I/O panel will in the back slot of the case. Which is why the case won't come with any on the back.

Have you given any thought to building your own? You can save a lot of money by doing so. I promise you it is not hard at all, think of it as playing with legos....

agreed building yourself assures more knowledge, lower price, more customization and higher quality.

If it's because of a lack of time you don't want to build yourself and don't care about price then okay I understand, but it's because of a lack of knowledge built it yourself it's really not hard. Everything fits in only way, unless you break or bend anything by excessive force(very excessive as I've dropped almost every component and none ever suffered) there is nothing to really do wrong.

ohh and if you do want a pre built system falcon northwest systems are a better choice.

computer as supplied by cyberpower (no frills) $2172

components as quoted by Newegg (almost perfect match) 2525



$350. more to build myself and I get no help or backup ---

I would like to do this and I guess I would pay the 350 for the experience, but I am in a hurry this time and do not want to have a large delay trying to configure drivers or some such nonsence

I still don't get it. The identical system with all the peripherals nd software costs 2500(I repaced the asatek cooler with the better h70). The cyberpower costs 2800.

Building a system takes around an hour setting it up around an extra hour. That's 300dollars saved in 2 hours and yeah can egt better parts because some of those are bad choices.

BTW: I'm assuming the cyberpower comes with a 1year warrenty well components ussually have warrenties going from 1year alll the way to double lifetime.
