Few Questions About My Biuld...

Hey Guys!


This is my first time building my very own Gaming PC! I just had some questions about it, maybe someone can help me with it.

Ill be using these parts:


ASUS P8P67 Deluxe LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131679&Tpk=P8P67%20deluxe


G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428


EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130595&Tpk=EVGA%20GTX%20570%20superclocked

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115070


CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011&Tpk=Corsair%20HX850


Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018&Tpk=noctua%20nh-d14


As well as a WD 1TB HDD and a Lite-on DVD-R but those don't really have much to do with my question.
-What i need to know is if the ram that i picked will preform without issues on that P8P67 Deluxe motherboard?
-If so, which socket should i place the ram in? the blue or black?
-Finally, can someone tell me if i should go ahead and confirm this order? Does everything look amazing?

  1. Save yourself a ton and grab the XFX 850W unit, its great quality just like the Corsair 850HX, but it costs significantly less.
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207001&cm_re=xfx_850w-_-17-207-001-_-Product

    Im not sure which slot to place the ram in, but a quick look in your manual will tell you once you get it, that ram should work fine with that board.

    Everything else looks fine.
  2. Nice build! That RAM should be fine--I'd get 1600C7 or 2000C9 though. But realistically, you'll be bottlenecked by your graphics for the most part.

    ??? That builds a complete mess if there's price point (budget). You don't get a $300+ mobo and a $90 h/s and then ride with a gtx 570. There's gaming builds, and then there's what the OP posted. Now how would a person get at gtx 580 out of that without spending anymore money, yet still getting a quality build for gaming?

    First off unless the OP does anything other than gaming...unless he's into FSX, then a 2500K will do just fine. And for the mobo...psu, etc...

    Mobo's... ? Asus Pro, AsRock Extreme4, Asrock Extreme6, Gigabyte UD4...those boards start @ $150 - $200 and all of them should get you to 5.0Ghz on the o/c...which doesn't really mean jack seeing who runs their cpu at that speed when their gaming ? HEAT

    Now with the money saved you don't get an o/c version of a vid card, you do it yourself and save a few bucks (unless they got a special on them). You get one like this one down below...

  4. Okay, you're right. I usually tell people their builds are bad and I was lazy. I should've said, "That build's a lot nicer than mine, but you really should be doing something different with that much money." Thanks for correcting it Why_Me--much better choices.

    he he...ok I guess I could have been a bit more subtle. :)
  6. I needed that though, because this other guy wanted to get a 5770 for his new Phenom II 955 build and he could've gotten a 5850 if he skipped a water cooling.

    Am i spending to much on stuff that i can get for cheaper and better the performance? or are you just suggesting that for how much I'm paying for this build i should hook it up with a better graphic card?

    Yes to both. Name a budget, and what parts you don't need and/or already have...o/s, psu, etc...
  9. $1700-1800, Don't bother including a Case, besides that i need everything... I just need the outcome to be amazing, something that works and will be a great Gaming PC.
  10. Ooh fun :). Is there any reason no one recommends a 5970? Isn't it faster than a GTX 580 in everything but the NVidia--the way it's meant to played titles? I guess it's better to recommend 2x 6950's unlocked to 6970's? You know, for $1800 it's possible to have dual GTX580's. That sounds ridiculous--but's it's doable.

    CPU: i7-2600K $330
    Mobo: one Why_Me listed above $200
    PSU: Corsair TX950 $125 AR
    Cooler: Anything with great reviews $50
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws 1600CL9 $103
    DVD: ASUS one on Newegg $17
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 $55 on Amazon
    Graphics: $920 remains ($1800 budget) That's 2x 80GB Solid State Drives in RAID 0 and a GTX 580 or HD 5970.

    I'd go with the HD 5970, but that's just me. And then I'd SLI or CrossfireX a second card next Black Friday.
  11. Oh...2x 80GB SSD's, GTX 580, & 28" 1920x1200 monitor (2x$130+$500+$250).

    Most all of the P67 boards got new bios within the last week including this AsRock board which o/c's to 5.0Ghz+ now. :)

  13. That Silverstone PSU can't handle two GTX 580's. There's a few other choices near that price range that can. I don't know if they're modular though.

    Oh i forgot to mention i already have a good monitor! so no need to include it, maybe we can replace it with something else =p or just lower the total by removing it, btw what are SSD's?

    SSD's (Solid State Drive) are an unneeded item. Some people put their o/s (Windows) and a few proggy's/games on them for the fact they load up twice as fast as a normal h/d. I don't use them myself...I don't mind waiting a few extra seconds for Windows to load up. By taking that off build along with the Rosewell mounting kit for it...that drops the price of the build to: $1,438.89 before rebates, shipping, etc...

    That leaves you a few extra $ to put away for another one of those gtx 580's.
  19. Aww man, their out of stock on the AsRock P67 Extreme4 on Newegg.ca... How about the AsRock P67 Extreme6?

    That's a good board. It gives you a few extra's including more usb ports, etc..

  22. Hey Why_Me, is there a reason people don't use 5970's (other than the prohibitive cost)? Performance wise, they're the best, right?

    TBH I'm not sure. I remember when the 5870 used to have some heat and tearing issues...I'm not sure if it carried over to these cards or not.
  24. The 5970 is a dual-gpu card. So basically in performance, cost, and power usage, it's like a crossfire setup on a single card. I think in most situations you can do better for less by combining two lesser cards yourself. Also the 5970 is huge, so it won't fit in smaller cases.

    I suppose for the absolute extreme in performance you could crossfire two (or heck, three) 5970s, but not real situation requires that, and it would be stupid-expensive.

    Edit: Also, the standard 5970 has 'only' 1GB of memory per GPU, which may bottleneck it on higher resolutions. (There is a 4GB version (2GB per GPU), but it's even more expensive.)
