Hello, Im looking into building a gaming pc
My last three computers have been mac's so I have kind of lost touch on whats good, whats better, and whats the best for the cost.
Purpose: Gaming hopefully on max settings. (bf3, mw3, starcraft II, etc)
Here are a couple of things I have picked out and a couple of blanks I need to fill in. (Prices for my picked are in Canadian)
If you have any negatives or better suggestions on what I have picked out feel free to input.
At more than 2" tall in certain areas the Corsair Vengeance could pose a problem for users like me who use large coolers such as the Scythe Mugen 2. I was able to use the Corsair Vengeance only after I mounted the fan on my cooler on the backside. Size is definitely a concern with heat spreaders of this size and therefore I encourage users to check that they will have enough space under their heatsinks before purchasing the Corsair Vengeance kit.
The problem I have with the Corsair Vengeance is the same I have with many kits of RAM on the market. Companies insist on putting large coolers on their RAM and it limits the choice in CPU heatsinks that can be used within users system. DDR3 does not require these elaborate coolers with its lower voltages which translate to lower temperatures then RAM saw during the DDR, and DDR2 era. Corsair is correcting this with low profile versions of its Vengeance line but ultimately I would like to see the average size of coolers drop instead of having to look for specific low profile versions of a memory line.
^ LOL To bad almost all of those things have $5-$20 shipping charges.
Also, just because the Asrock doesn't have a 3 year but a 2 year, it makes little difference because they rarely break down after that 2 year period. If they end up run down it'd be within a year. Besides, The P8P67 only runs 16x/4x and not only that costs way more that many boards that are better around its price range.
Jack just to tell you, those are MIR prices not before rebate. Not all companies Honor them, I don't see how you don't get that.
One final (i think) question..
Will that 750w power supply be able to handle SLI (dual 560 ti's) if I end up getting another card in the future.
I read that brand is pretty solid. Just want to confirm.
