(UPDATE: Read my reply, I built a PC now on

Hey!, I'm Afflicto from Norway! I'm 18 and I need a new PC, It needs to be BEAST! for 3D Rendering\live streaming and gaming etc.

#1 Note: I have a budget of 1900 for the CORE Build. I can upgrade or install extra stuff later on. (for instance, start with sata, get SSD later or start with 4gig, 8 gig later etc)

#2 Note: I have monitors, speakers, keyboard, mice, all that stuff!

#3 Note: All of them will be bought from (Norwegian website, if you want to visit you can use google translate to view site in english.


Approximate Purchase Date: Today, Because of "Leet Weeks" Thing on! :) 

Budget Range: 1800-1900 US dollar for the core build. Will upgrade\add later on.

System Usage: Everything. 8-12 hours a day. Gaming, Live Streaming Show, Working with 3D rendering\video\audio music composing, know what, EVERYTHING, almost :p 

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, GFX Card, Monitor,

Preferred Websites for Parts: \ \ ( has leet weeks and crazy weeks ending tomorrow)

Country of Origin: Norway

Parts Preferences: I can use any, I'm still not sure whether to go with AMD or Intel. I've heard intel is better if you want top performance but AMD is good for the budget user.

Overclocking: I do 3D Rendering and like to MAX games... In the future, most likely.

SLI or Crossfire: Crossfire (Eyefinity

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1980 (I will be eyefinity-ing 3x full hd later on)

Additional Comments: I like clean\stylish look on parts. Put performance\bang for the buck is mostly what I'm concerned about! :) 


Parts I have for THIS Build.
Pretty good 120 dollar chair.

XFX Radeon HD 5770 (I was thinking about getting one more and Xfire those together, is it a good idea? or should I get a new better card?)

All other peripherals, I have. like studio 3 mics\2 cams\keyboard,mice,mousepad,speakers.

I have a 24 inch LCD from samsung, the P2450 with 2ms and 70 000:1 contrast ratio. Will get 2 more of these later for eyefinity.

I also have the Logitech G27, which is awesome! Gonna be dirt\shift\LFS this with eyefinity! WOOT! :D 

Can't remember any other important info.



So go ahead and suggest\build for me!
Highly appreciated as I'm having a hard time right now with alot of work, I have currently been up for 30 hours straight...uh, oh.. that's right my not too warm.

Need to pick a better brand. PSU is the "soul" of the build. Corsair, Corsair, Corsair. Other top end brands are PC Power and Cooling and some Antec Models.

This what I have.....

The 1000w is overkill unless you are gonna SLI/Crossfire.

850W would be plenty for a single GPU.

Get a modular set up.

Stick with Asus or Gigabyte.
Asus P8P67 Family great choice. Socket 1155 for your CPU. If you are gonna SLI/Crossfire.....WS Revolution. It lets you run both PCI Express at x16 c/w others like the Deluxe that do one at x16 and other x8. Gigabyte GA-p67A-UD7-B3 is another high end MOBO like the WS Revolution.

WS Revolution


These seem to be the hot recommendation for Core i7 builds. GSKill Ripjaws. Like....

Want 1.5v and 1600 speed.

Think you have right one. Fan is stock Intel.

Personal choice. I have LianLi which is like the Rolls Royce of cases but $$$. My kids have Cosmos S, which is very nice.

for GPUs i would say 2 Radeon 6950s 2gb. they will be great for eyefinity and you can unlock them to 6970 speeds.

The corsair obsidian cases have a very stylish/clean look, but they are mainly meant for watercooling. I would recommend the coolermaster HAF series
April 10, 2011 7:34:46 PM

I'l go with Coolermaster Haf then. Also, do I really need 2 6950s? if so, how much power will I need to drive those?

looks good. You truly do not need to 6950s until you run intensive games on eyefinity. One will work great in eyefinity with lighter games like call of duty, but if you try to run crysis in eyefinity with one youll have to turn down the eyecandy

For CF 6950, i would go for 850w to be safe. 750w would be pushing it, even with a high quality psu
