New build, best price/performance setup Tags: New Build Performance ATI Systems Product Last response: April 18, 2011 4:05 PM in Systems Share Harregat April 13, 2011 7:35:30 PM I need to buy a new pc to last 2-3 years, so I am looking for the best price/performance setup. I plan to OC a bit and buy another GPU and more ram later on. This is what I have in mind so far, but any suggestions will be apreciated: CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k MB: Asus p8p67 deluxe rev 3.0 RAM: (1) G.skill Ripjaws-X (2 x 2GB) F3-12800CL7D-4GBXM (2) Corsair Vengeance (1 x 4GB) CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9B (3) Corsair Vengeance (2 x 2GB) CMZ4GX3M2A1600C9B GPU: (1) ASUS ATI 6950 2Gb (2) MSI ATI 6950 2Gb (3) Gigabyte ATI 6950 2Gb (4) Sapphire ATI 6950 2Gb (reference models) HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1Tb Case: Cooler Master 690 ii advanced PSU: Corsair TX650 Screen: (1) Viewsonic VX2450WM (2) Samsung xl2370 (3) Samsung PX2370 Optical drive: LG GH24LS50 I am not sure about those where I have included options, so please comment on that. Thank you in advance for any advice!

The only time I can hear the fan is when I'm gaming with max settings, and then it isn't that noticeable. What do you need on the deluxe that isn't on the pro (ASUS P8P67)? I'd save some cash there and get an 8GB set of RAM. m 0 l Related resources New build, best price/performance setup - Forum Building the "best" price/performance €1000 gaming rig! need advice! - Forum Best Price/Performance?

Please follow the guidelines in this link. Particularly important are budget and intended use. As for the monitors, I would get this ASUS before that Viewsonic. The Samsung XL2370 is deactivated on newegg. And that PX2370 seems way overpriced for a TN LED display. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
