Hey everyone! I'm planning on building a new system soon and this is what i've come up with:
Case:COOLER MASTER HAF X Blue Edition
Mobo:ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155
GPU:SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB
PSU:CORSAIR Professional Series HX850
CPU:i7-2700K SB OR i7-3770k IB
RAM:CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) is 8gb fine or should i go with 16gb to be safe?
HDD:Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 64mb cache
Burner:ASUS DVD Burner
I want to be able to run BF3, SC2, Diablo 3, etc. maxed out at 1920x1080 at around 50-80fps and maybe at medium/high settings in eyefinity at 40fps minimum. Will one 7970 and the rest of the system be able to pull it off? If you have any suggestion please share them . Thanks guys!
Thanks for your response . One more thing, is water cooling REQUIRED to oc the IB to around 4.6ghz? or can i use a nice cpu fan like a Noctua NH-D14 or coolermaster hyper 212. What other cooling solutions could you guys recommend for both water and air cooling?
