More about here final system
  1. just want to know what you guys think as this is my version of a mid/higher end rig and is my first full on build.
  2. For your first build it looks great.
  3. it's aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawesomeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :D
  4. Personally for that kind of money id have been looking at an i5-2500k build and maybe slightly more powerful GPU's (6950's in CF) and possibly 1600MHz RAM too.

    No doubt the build performs great though so as long as your happy with it :) It looks good :)
  5. ^ i agree.for $1450, you can build a good intel system and it's going to smoke any amd rig!
  6. a bit expensive for the components but the components are well ballanced nice :)
  7. Agree, as long as you are happy. when I built my p2x4 system it was top of the line. now I am building a i7
  8. In all honesty, Intel is far to over priced for what it is. AMD+AMD runs great and I have my ram oc'd to 1866mhz @ 9-9-9-24. I should have stated that $150-$200 of the final price is extended warranties. The only thing I like about NVIDIA cards is physix.. didn't spell that right but oh well. i have my gpu's oc'd well past 1ghz on the core clock and 1.2ghz on the memory. I am waiting until the HD 78** cards come out and will upgrade to them

    Its been shown that in real world benches that AMD hold its own against Intel. The synthetic benchmarks are where the hyperthreaded intel's win

    Please show me a "real world" gaming benchmark where an AMD-CPU benches the same as the i5-2500k/i7-2600k?
