Sound Card Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card $58 - $22 left And the mobo has 8 channel sound so I don't know if you need that sound card.
You can use the "little higher" for the monitor.
you dont need a sound card. or an 850 watt PSU
SLI/CXFire is literally a way to use two or more graphics card to achieve better FPS
Sli is Nvidia's version.
Crossfire/XFire is ATi Radeon's version.
there's also a great deal on the samsung spinpoint right now making it an even better choice.
also six cores isnt needed for gaming and if you only edit videos of video games or anything like that you probably could just get a AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU
instead of the 1090T
atotalnoob told me that six cores is better for rendering. Is it true ? as I need to do a lot of rendering in adobe after effect.
So the motherboard support the sound already? Well, i dont think I'm that kind of hardcore gamer so SLI/CSFire is not necessary for me i think.
Well, i'm still waiting for more recommendation ^^, will decide by the end of this week ^^
Six Cores IS better for rendering, and editing in general.
and yeah motherboards already support the sound sound cards are usually for audiophiles, and if you do a lot of rendering in after effects id recommend a GTX 460 1gb since it has cuda.
which basically offloads some of the rendering load from the CPU to the GPU (faster render times)
Here is what I think would be a best deal for me if no one give me any better recommendation. Please check if anything is not compatible to other as I really scare that I will buy stuffs which cannot put together ... And by the way, do I need to buy a thermal compound ? or is it come along with the fan / heat sink ? this is the first time I build my own desktop so just to make sure ...
