  1. if you are a not gamer then rig is ok but if you are a gamer then your selected gpu is slightly weaker for latest games like bf3,skyrim,farcry3 etc you should go for gtx 560ti.
    Otherwise your pc is perfect
  2. Dont forget that its the oveclocked version with clocks 725/1450/3600. Its pretty strong for its money. And just one step before gtx 560 in the value for money on september graphic cards. I dont know if it worths it :S
  3. Yeah, what dos is saying is true. the GTX 460 is a really great card for gaming.
  4. the thing is that its cheap and performing very well on almost everything out at the moment...
  5. Although a 6870 would also be a good choice for the money. ^_^
  6. DOnt go cheap on the GPU. Get something like 560 / 6950 to compliment the CPU well. Also go with a brand like seasonic/corsair for psu.
  7. the mobo u mentioned have a really bad customer reviews at newegg :)
  8. Hmmm are you going to buy the whole system from just one shop?
    Like plaisio or smthng?
  9. I will never go ATI... not because i think they are bad cards but because i think they are worse than nvidia. You missunderstood me, when i say cheap i mean less expensive. Let me tell you the facts, 3DMark11 - Enthusiast benchmark says Geforce GTX 560 Ti FPS: 28.25 and for Geforce GTX 460 1GB FPS 20.50 so we are talking for 7.75 FPS difference. Now lets see the price difference, Msi's one of the top tiers GPU manufacturer 460 GTX 1GB costs 169 euro and Palit's one of the last tiers GPU manufacturer 560 ti GTX costs 248 euro. The difference 79 euro which means 104.247 USD and all this for 7.75 fps. Im not playing the smart guy or something i just go with the facts. Seriusly will you ever give that difference for 7.75 fps? Really...

    Well i allready saw that its 4-5 stars and the 1 stars reviews are talking about DOA and first day problem. If you see the 4 and 5 star reviews you will figure out that it has many new technologies like good overclocking sata 3 usb 3 and all that stuff in a very reasonable price.

    Its a Gigabyte anyways... We all know the quality of this company

    plaisio has a very good deal for gtx460 EVGA FPB at 149euro http://www.plaisio.gr/Computers/Hardware/SVGA/EVGA-GTX-460-FPB-PCI-Express-DDR5-1GB-VGA-PCI-X-EVGA-GTX-460-1GB-FPB.htm

    Its O/C too and it costs 20euro less.
    (edit: its @ 720Mhz source: http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=01G-P3-1370-TR&family=GeForce 400 Series Family&sw=)
  13. I know that its a very good deal to be honest
  14. The MSI gtx 460 o/c is not twin frozr and it is an exhibition part. Some people dont mind about this but paying 20 euro more for an exhibition part...
  15. You can change the psu too. IMO, Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 is better (not only from numbers but i believe that corsair is better than cooler master in quality on psus at least) than CoolerMaster GX Series 650W PSU and it costs 5 euro less

    yep we know the quality but why u or anyone get a mobo that have much issues i'm not talking about Gigabyte here i'm talking about this chip :D i'm telling him to just take care
  17. You mean the whole p67 chipset? Or just this motherboard as a board?

    This corsair is too recent on the plaisio's list.... hadn't even saw that before... Well its a lil bit better than the cooler master GX650. But for the information this doesnt means that the coolermaster is a bad product. Its also a high quality one.

    But at the end this corsair is better and CHEAPER
  19. Well with the 25€ that you gain from psu and gpu you can get a better Z68 mobo (so 016ive will not complain xD). Like Gigabyte MB Z68A-D3H-B3 129€
    http://www.plaisio.gr/Computers/Hardware/Motherboards/Gigabyte-MB-Z68A-D3H-B3-s-1155-DDR3-Z68-Z68A-D3H-B3.htm
  20. This is like P67A D3 B3 the only thing that changes is the chipset which is completely waste of money for me since i will never go sli and i will never use the onboard graphics...
  21. Well if you are not intersted in lucid virtu and the ssd caching you can choose p67 I guess.
  22. Btw about the cpu cooler. If you dont have problem with noise plaisio also have corsair A50 and A70 at good price (35€ and 45€). The coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus (39€) might be quiter though.

    A70: http://www.plaisio.gr/Computers/Hardware/CPU-Coolers/Corsair-CPU-Cooler-Air-Series-A70-Intel-775-1156-1366-AMD-AM2-AM3.htm
    CM 212: http://www.plaisio.gr/Computers/Hardware/CPU-Coolers/CoolerMaster-Hyper-212-Plus-Cpu-Cooler-RR-B10-212P-GP.htm
  23. i will stick with the tx3
  24. Well thats all I have to suggest. I agree with you on the rest parts. The final choice ofcourse its yours :). Good gaming with your new gaming rig :D!
