i was looking into the intel i5- 2500k but here in canada, its about $219.. im not in need of a computer right now, this one is doing ok at the time but i have a feeling something that cannot be fixed will happen to this computer so the time i would like to buy parts would be this fall or winter thank you very much ill probably wait until the intel i5 will go down to an affordable price for me.
That is false, you don't NEED 1600, the real world difference from 1600 to 1333 is about 1-2% hardly even noticeable at all.
Also I strongly disagree with that statement. The 5770 was and still is a gaming card. It runs many of the current games really well, especially at smaller resolutions.
My points were aimed at he topic in question building a 1000$ gameing rig under that assumption a 5770 would be a poor choice in that price bracket and again the I did not say NEED any where in my post but considering the very small price difference to 1600 speed memory. I simply do not feel its logical to invest a grand in a system with relativity slow ram and a low end card in fact. if you look at your own signature look even the 500 budget build recommends a card 20-30%+ faster card then 5770 its a fine card now but why build a brand new PC that might not be able to play games in a year or two at any thing but min settings?
And also unless you do some serious auto editing or you are a audiophile aznshinobi is really right most motherboards have good build in audio in fact some have chips comparable to hold expansion cards.
I totaly agree with you azn and I also will say i was wrong that the 5770 can be a gameing card and can play quite a few games I just thought it was kinda silly in the 1000$ range you made good points though cheers.
thank you for helping i filled out the form and posted the filled form as my new thread starter im still not sure about the type of graphics card or mother board now i know the radeon 5770 isnt good for 1000$, what is?
560ti is a nvida card no nvida card is crossfire supported you can use multiple cards but with Nvida its called SLI and usaly the only time more memory matters IE 2gb over 1 gb is if you are going to play at higher resolutions other then that you will see very very little difference.
^ Not exactly. I play with the mobo sound card using my TurtleBeach P11's and it works just fine I hear enemies really well and I'm able to hear where they are. It's a huge waste of money when most of the budget should be allocated for the GPU/CPU those are the most important in a system.
But I do see your point, but don't people usually play with headsets if they want to hear it clearly?
As illfindu stated. Nvidia cards don't use CF it uses their own system of multi-card setups which is SLI. Only AMD cards use CF. Overall people recommend the 6950 2GB and 1GB (According to THG) but I think the 560 Ti is pretty much on par with them expecially when overclocked. However the 6950 2GB can also overclock very well.
Also OP why wouldn't you just follow the entire guide? I gave you all the things you need, and yes the motherboard in the $900 build is CF/SLI capable.
BTW, the Artic Freezer is a terrible cooler, you should be getting the Hyper 212+ from Amazon it performs way better. OP I take it you're new to computers.
