I started a thread not too long ago called 'It's rig time' and I was getting some assistance with one of the modarator. Though he or she did give a handful of options about my project, they were question I stated in the old thread that have yet to be review or bother answer. My time on this is getting shorter and I need to get everything ready before time runs out. In case if anyone would like to give a helping hand, just researching my username with 'It's rig time' title you should be able to find my old thread.

Wow this is horrid, I am not sure whether its my time difference or I am being too demanding but all I want is upfront and knowledgeable opinion for a particular item I am trying to buy due to the fact of so many variation and models.

I recently bought an Intel i5 2500k 3.3ghz to built me a new rigged; so far I have acquire a reasonable tower coolmaster 690 advance II and the Intel i5 2500k 3.3ghz. My next is the motherboard, so far I the z68 and p67 models and variations; I am trying to find one that would suite my criteria it need to last at least 5 years or so able to handle at near maximum spec without too much hardship.

I think all you needed was to ask your question in this thread.

What does near maximum spec mean to you?
These are my z68 suggestions for different reasons:

For overclocking:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD5 LGA 1155
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For Future proofing (PCIe3 w/ IB)
ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For bi,tri SLI/CF + future proofing :
ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 LGA 1155
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Good mainstream z68 board:
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank for showing these awesome looking ram!! I found them on sale on Ebay for about $50.00 sweet thanks. Waiting on next paycheck to decide which motherboard is the one for me, so far Asrock Extreme7 is looking like a sure winner though it will dent my wallet a little. After going hunting for 6870HD 2gb that will also be on my next paycheck or maybe some another alternative that could profitable and be able to compete with the 6870HD 2gb.

I have a problem the extreme7 is only sold at Amazon for a stupendous $330.00 excluding the shipping charges and Newegg at $289.00 plus a nearly $30.00 shipping charges which would make equivalent to that of Amazon.

Now my obvious question do I really need to get the extreme7? I get the impression that if I do get this item it is going to be impossible to great or good parts with remaining budget..........


p.s. Please someone answer me back as soon as possible.

I don't see why anyone would pay over $200 for a motherboard besides if it was a specific theme and certain abilities others didn't have that were worth the extra $100+

You can find a nice $150ish mobo that will give you everything you need and spend the rest of the money on places that matter like graphics, processing, storage, monitors.


Do you a particular motherboard in mind?

Any of the boards I recommended in my earlier post work well too.

Well I bought the AsRock Extreme4 Gen3 since I found it for less than $189.00 although I could not avoid the $25.00+ shipping charges I end spending $213.00+ all together.

Now the excruciating part shopping is the Graphic Processor because it just like the CPU and the motherboard; too many variations with too many ups and downs. I was recommended ATI radeon brand due to their stability and less prone to break down like Nvidia are now known for. The 6950 2gb was highly suggested by my last thread.

It's funny you should say that because nvidia drivers are considered more stable and developed than the radeon drivers. The 2gb 6950 and the 560 ti by nvidia are both great cards.

Get amd if you ever want to go for a 3+ monitor setup and go with nvidia if you want to game in 3d at some point.

MSI twin frozr's are good choices for an aftermarket design. The gigabyte windforce models offer great cooling and noise performance also.

Do I need one or two of them because the price tags saying one while I was recommend two of these cards which WILL go over my budget.

Now this purchase one be made anything time due to the fact there are others parts that I need to acquire and aren't as expensive as the GPU >>

My next hunt is for a Power Supply with a company that offer me the goods instead of it's name. I was looking into the 650W-1200W range, with the crossfire and sli capabilities. There is another factor which is new to me since it has been a while since I upgrade or purchase a computer; that is the 80 gold 80 silver thingimajic which I am clueless about.

There is another issue which I forgot to brought and it is an important one. Which operation system should use for these new pc of I was going home edition premium 64 bits and the ultimate 64 bits is way out of my league due to cost. I do not include the 32 bits into this conversation due to the fact that it will not fully utilize all of the ram which is extremely for this particular computer of mine.

Last week my 560TI 2GB MZR Frost Graphic Processor came in!!! Now the power supply and the operation system is going to next expensive purchase. After that everything should be relatively be under $100.00; like the mouse, keyboard, disk bay, etc.

Now speaking of disk bay I do have a question that needs insight, I thinking get a multi-function disk bay that comes with Blue-ray function but my suggest that Blue-ray is not something worth investing. Though I do agree with on that matter since I don't even a Blue-ray disk myself, should I put it on the latter or invest now?

I would suggest not getting a blu ray burner since blu ray discs are expensive relative to dvds. If you have a monitor which can go up to 1080p res and is 24 inch+, then watching blu ray movies on it is really nice.
