More about rate build
  1. If you are only going to get 4GB of ram, I recommend a 2x2GB kit so you will have dual channel access to the ram. If you are going to get 2 sticks of ram, then I recommend getting a 2x4GB kit of matched ram rather than getting single sticks. You will have fewer problems with the matched kit.
  2. from what perspective do you want these grades? gaming, everyday use, video editing, etc.

    also, a scale rating of 1-10 needs a group of other computers to compare with. give a price range or another scale we can use.
  3. If we give a 1, you'll either be pissed or think you done something wrong. Give you a 10 and you'll be happy and think that setup is the best while others have better setups then what you got there.
    Out of 1-10, I give it a 7
    Could have use Z68 board, like this or this a Samsung SP F3 1TB, and grab better rams

    you bumped the thread after a little more then 6 minutes???? come on read the rules and dont be so impatient.

    on a scale though i would say 5.5 to 6.

    get the samsung 1tb drive, 8gb of ram, a z68 board, and you can overclock way further then 4.0. also for that kind of money for 2 560ti's you can get a single 580 for about the same and it is much better. proof below

  5. i mean for gaming only ...
    and i buy 2 stocks of 4GB (8GB) 1333
    what is better 2 of 560ti or 1 of gtx580??
  6. the gtx560 ti is with oc so if 2 stocks of gtx560 ti with no oc its like gtx580
    so 2 stocks of gtx560 ti with oc would be almost like gtx590
    I wrong ??
  7. Case? fans? leds? frontal bays? optical drives? etc....

    Perhaps you will get psu blocked if you have 2 many things.
  8. i dont underestand what wrong in this build ???????????
  9. Around 7-8.

    Possible improvements?

    1. Z68 motherboard.
    2. Case and PSU deactivated on Newegg. Possibly outdated? (not sure on this one. just wondering)
    3. Get a proper 8GB performance RAM kit than 2 value modules.
    4. 1TB drive costs just $10 more
  10. ok why i need better motherboard that mother board will do the same job ?
    what special about z68 that the other motherboard can do ?
    i dont buy from newegg..
    I will get a better case
    why 1 stock of 8GB will be better then 2 of 4GB?
    i will buy a 1TB
    then it will be 10/10 ?

    Current build about a 5-6, after these improvements about a 7, overclock that i5-2500k to about 4.5GHz and ill give you an 8 or a 9 (10 would be adding an SSD too).
  12. i mean for gaming performence not pc ..

    i know that raid 0 of 2 ssd will make my pc be super fast ..

    i will make oc to 4.5 but my motherboard can handle it right ?

    Providing you have some good cooling, which with the Mugen 2, it seems you do :) Your motherboard should be fine.
  14. so the final pc is :

    cpu : i5 2500k to 4.5ghz
    cooler: mugen 2
    case : somthing better then radimax i will find one
    psu : 750W
    HDD: i know i should get ssd but it a lot of money so i will take 500gb hdd
    graphic card : gtx560 ti overclocked (2 stocks SLI) wich will be like 1 stock of gtx590
    MOTHERBOARD : Gigabyte GA-P67X-UD3-B3
    RAM : YOU DONT ANSWER ME WHAT DIFFRENCE BETWEEN 2 STOCKS OF 4GB THEN 1 STOCK OF 8GB ITS NOT THE SAME THING ? (1333)

    THIS BUILD IS 9/10 OR 10/10 ?? (GAMING PERFORMENCE)
  15. 1TB is probably a better buy. The price difference between 1TB and 500GB is very minor.

    Take a look at:
    7200RPM 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black
    7200RPM 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3
    7200RPM 1TB SeaGate Barracuda

    RAM, take a look at:
    1600MHz 8GB (2x4GB sticks) or 4GB (2x2GB sticks) CL9 1.5v.
    Corsair and G.Skill are both popular choices.
  16. ok i will take 1tb then it will be 10/10 or 9/10?
  17. 9/10 based on budget, yes. Adding a 60GB SSD as a boot drive would push it up to 10/10 for a good, well rounded, mid-range build.

    But obviously there are much much better builds when your budget increases.

    What PSU are you looking at by the way? Its fine saying 750w...but what brand? Don't buy any old junk.
  18. sea sonic SS 750WAT
  19. Nice PSU :)

    Get a 2 stick, 8 GB kit(2x4GB). This will let the ram run in dual channel mode as opposed to single channel, for better performance. get the kit as the modules will be factory -matched for compatibility.
