Hey guys. Been using tomshardware, overclockers forum, newegg and amazon for awhile now compiling my list of compenents and I believe I have a pretty solid gaming build. Im not trying to build a totally high end, expensive rig, but with you alls input an my initial research, Im sure I'll have what I need to last me awhile.
-with this GPU, I plan to eventually SLI it with another if I feel I need to after using it.
-also, it says PE/OC. Now the OC.. I dont think that means it's factory overclocked. If it does, I'll probably look elsewhere as I dont want factory overclocking. If anyone can let me know either way.
-I originally wanted the Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W 80+ Bronze (Modular) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
but seeing as the Corsair is cheaper and seems more popular, I decided to go with it. If anyone has an opinion on either of these two power supplies or similar, I'd appreciate it.
I have a 1650x1050 monitor, mouse and keyboard.
I'll be eventually getting another GTX 570 for SLI
Also be adding another monitor 1080p to use for primary and gaming, with the monitor I have now used for side things not used for gaming.
I'll be getting pretty much all the components from Amazon as they're cheaper than Newegg.
Total build cost : Approximately $1,400
I believe thats all the information I can think of to tell you all about. Any and all input will be graciously accepted. Thanks.
Check the read write speeds and IOPS of that SSD! IOPS should be low and the speeds should be at-least 120MB/s.
What about an Intel SSD? Maybe a 40/80GB??? Even a 40GB can fit your OS + favourite programs.
The read speed says up to 500MB/s which is considerably higher than 120. I dont think I'm gonna be too worried with the write speed as I dont think I'll be putting much on it, and what I do put on it, I dont care if it takes a few more seconds.
Newegg gives it 5/5 rating and the reviews are pretty top notch. I see nothing wrong with it, very affordable too.
First I would change out that RAM with the cake cutter heat sinks. Unless you plan on using them for a hair comb they aren't going to do anything other than impede your cpu h/s. Try this down below...low heat sinks ftw.
