  1. Thks.
    They are not overpriced because I am living in Australia, not America.
    The MSI Twin Frozr 560ti OC in Australia is about AUD254.

    What do you think about Asus nVidia GTX560 Ti TOP 3D 1GB 900Mhz- AUD275
    http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/engtx560-asus-nvidia-gtx560-p-53657.html?sort=3a
    Because Asus is a very good brand.
  2. Yeh. I think so. But I must pay more extra money. I'm thinking about that.
    Thank you.
  3. I would get the Hawk one. In my opinion that card is the best out of all of them you posted. Oh ya you might want to get another PSU, brands like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, and XFX types. Not cool master. Good Luck

  4. Yes, I like the Hawk before too. But what did you meant? Cooler master is not enough the good brand? But Antec and others are a little higher.

    There is list of good PSU's and bad The cooler master one you listed is on the tier 4 of the list. Tier 1 is the best, tier 5 is the worst. You are on the tier 4. Here is the link to this list.

    The other brands I listed are PSU's that are certtified and have a long life and they are constant power not peak power. You will have to look on your web site to find them I will show you two of them at newegg.com.

    These are the type you want. I made a mistake on my PSU also. I have a Xstrem power 800w but it didn't even make the list. The PSU is the most inportant hardwear on your PC. With out it you have nothing.

    The second thread you posted of another 560 ti won't let me see what it is. It show web page closed or can't display.

    That too is a nice card for 3D stuff. If that is what you want then get it. It will go nicely in your build.
  8. Your welcome and Good day :)
  9. So, memory 2x4GB can go well with cpu i5 2500K and i7 2600K or need to upgrade to 16GB?

    8GB is normal for both. I just got a good deal on 8 more gig of ram and I never ever use it in the gaming. Even the i7 2600k is overkill. I should of saved myself a couple of hundred dollars and got the i5 2500k.

    I was on a mission to get the best and I really mest that up with my PSU and my GPU's. One of worst PSU's out there and the GTX 550 Ti's are one of the weakest cards out there. a double wamie.
  11. Yes, the 8GB RAM is enough.
    I think your PC is very good except for the graphic card.
  12. Thanks
  13. Bear in mind, that you have vanilla 560's listed as well as the more powerful 560 Ti's. My choice would be the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk. It has the highest factory overclock (950 mhz) and the custom components to support even higher clock speeds. The Twin Frozr III cooler does an excellent job and is very quiet as well.

    The video says it all:

    Yes, mate. I know it, but I stand between the Hawk and the ASUS 560 Ti TOP 3D 900MHz. Which one do you think better?
  15. LIke I wrote before, I would go for the Hawk. The custom "military grade" components are for real. It's a card that's built from the ground up for overclocking.
