Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6819115072 - $220

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813157269 - $270

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814125379 - $520


build i was told to get but the mobo has some horrible reviews which conerns me should i get a different mobo im not conerned with 3.0 because i was told most graphics cards wont utilize all the lanes in 16 slot so having double would be pointless if they are not being utilized any suggestions would be awesome need to get info asap need to have this bought by tomorrow morning

Alright here is what I think would work great for you, your links are broken so I couldnt tell what parts you were talking about on newegg. Besides that I hope you like and you have one hell of a case too bad it does have LEDs on it else I would think about getting it

Best solution

November 3, 2011 7:59:43 AM

I would still stick with the 6970 and crossfire when you need the extra performance plus it is OC'ed already with great cooling capabilities. If I had to build another computer the only thing I would change is an upgrade to the mobo

More USB 3.0 slots! Will last maybe a half a year longer

November 3, 2011 8:04:27 AM

so what about the set up i posted you think the mobo you posted is better for the upgrade ? Sorry like I said I have had multiple builds shown but that looked like the best one but the mobo seems to have more complaints then praise

November 3, 2011 8:19:12 AM

all the links are definately working that is the build i was shown but the mobo is questionable and i dont know if the 580 is the best out of all the ones that are for sale on newegg cuz i want the best one if im gonna spend that kind of money

The mobo you chose has more USB slots besides that I see no real difference when it comes to gaming

November 3, 2011 8:25:31 AM

November 3, 2011 8:41:08 AM

is DDR3 1600 and 1.5V, if it is then good to go get that SSD, RAM is cheap think about trying ot get it to 8GB as well it helps with speed

The mobo is completely up to you I see very little difference in them. Hands down the Crucial M4 SSD is the way to go

Best to keep msgs on the board so others may see and also comment (not everyone is perfect :p ) I would stick with the i5 very little difference in gaming performance

Its good as well but I would still stick with ASRock the company has proven its self to become a big contender in the mobo area besides that I see no issues or complaints with the Asus board you picked

My weak point is PSUs but yes I THINK it will but you can always upgrade the PSU to an 850 just incase you want to SLI down the road
