  2. That's a good build. I added it up and you are under budget. Any reason you are still sticking with a 560ti on a gaming build?

    A lot of Canadians use those two sites to save money on shipping fee's. They both ship out of the same office in Richmond, BC.
  6. would it worth to upgrade the gpu
  7. its the difference between playing games on high-ultra and maxing out games on 1080p
  8. Best Direct and Driect Canada - very safe - quite fast - good price. YES the GTX670 will make your gaming experience!!!!
    -Bruce (Canadian)
  9. i dont think i can fit the gtx670 in my budget tough
  10. well then, you can fit a 7850. it performs like a 570
  11. cool case, ill try to make a new build with those parts and where i can get with 1500, thanks alot
  12. ive been looking into this one few time, like the gtx 480 at 225$ but wasnt sure for this one because noise/overheating

    Will the programs you use benefit from hyper threading?
  14. yeah the 480 my friend has can fry his breakfast when he puts a tray ontop of the card
  15. i think ill have to delay to monday...to much parts to compare, at least im happy to have posted here, i may get somthing lot better for the same price. Thanks to everyone. Ill post new build when ill be done
  16. If i use Corsair Carbide Series 400R tough ill need to buy more 120 mm fan any1 can like me good quality one?

    seriously i dont think so, it was more for multitasking, i alwasy have alots of wep page, visual studio, sql manager and an other few program running when im working
  18. if you are multi-tasking, RAM helps usually
  19. should be alright with 16
  20. Here i go with the new build, budget still 1500

    FInal price is 1560, note that all price are rounded up, i only hope that directCanada doesnt calculate taxes only at the end...what do you think about it

    forgot to ask about asrock Mobo, people recommended me gigabyte and asus alot... and im not sure i have enough power with that PSU or enough connector to connect all fan ect. im a real noob with all those thing, ill know once ill have to build it i gess
  21. $450 for a gtx 670? Something's wrong with that. I see those cards for for $400 - $420 all the time. A 550w psu will power that build, I just threw the 620w in there because it was modular and only $5 more than the XFX 550w.

    Also you can lower that price if you go with 4x4GB set of RAM. 16GB is a lot of RAM and I doubt you will need more in the future. That build looks solid, just cut the cost some with the gpu and RAM.

    That Asus card I posted over clocks higher than most card due to it's non reference cooling. But there's an EVGA on Direct Canada going for $410 also.
  24. oh, good to know, didnt know i could OC Gpu myself, the asus u linked is great then
  25. if you are to get asus, make sure it is the top edition
  26. top edition??? :

    http://www.directcanada.com/produc [...] cture=ASUS $419.79
    ASUS GeForce GTX 670 980MHZ 2GB 6GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card

    I havent tough about it, but the R500 Case dosent have dust filters, do there is similar case with one?

    I havent tough about it, but the R500 Case dosent have dust filters, do there is similar case with one?

    The TOP edition is o/c to 1015HZ or something close to that. It takes all of a few minutes though to o/c that card past what the TOP is at it's factory settings. Although no need to o/c that card atm. There isn't any games out there yet that really challenge that card.
  28. So i can do it myself or i need to buy the 1015 one? I only for evga OC to 1006
  29. the top edition comes at a stock clock of 1058mhz with a boost clock of 1137mhz. what makes it special is that it is binned much higher than the regular 670s. this allows for much higher overclocks and gpu boosts reaching up to 1.3 ghz in some situations
  30. oh, its the default clock speed that is higher, ok, do you have a link...cant find one
  31. Lots of people had trouble with this card
  32. With that motherboard and CPU cooler you need to get low profile RAM. Like these: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9Q-16GAB
