Are These Parts All Compatible? Thoughts? Tags: New Build Games Compatibility Systems Last response: August 31, 2012 1:23 PM in Systems Share whosBlu August 31, 2012 12:30:30 PM Well im working on finding parts for my new gaming rig. I'm planning to put it together myself and wanted to make sure all the parts i will be using are compatible and make a sweet rig. Rig: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/g6aW The Games im planning to play the most are: -BF3 (High, MAYBE Ultra Textures) -ArmA 2 (High Textures) -Garrys Mod (Highest Textures) -Team Fortress Series (Highest Textures) -Pay Day - The Heist (Med , MAYBE High Textures) -Left 4 Dead (Highest Textures) -Minecraft Most of these games, i will be recording with DxTory or Fraps for youtube. I will be also trying to Raid 0 my SSD, and use the SSD for OS Boot and my favorite games. Im also interested in OCing to about 4.2 - 4.5 GHz IMPORTANT! - If you guys can, could you leave a thread or video on how to Raid 0 a SSD! - Also rate me gaming rig! - Leave some feed back and post if this rig could play the games i listed to my standards! Thanks in advanced! -JP More about : parts compatible thoughts mikerockett August 31, 2012 12:39:33 PM System looks pretty good. With regards to raid 0 your SSD, from what i can see you've only listed one so i don't see how you could do that. I would also recommend not bothering with raid 0'ing two SSD's. The performance you will see will be negligible on a day to day machine. Also i believe you lose the TRIM function from raiding them. m 0 l whosBlu August 31, 2012 12:40:41 PM i can't raid 0 my SSD? i need 2 SSDs to Raid 0 it? m 0 l Related resources 350 dollar decent rig, thoughts and parts compatibility? - Forum Parts Compatibility/ Suggestions & Thoughts - Forum 350 dollar gaming/media rig, thoughts and parts compatibility? - Forum Building My First PC, Thoughts On Parts List? - Forum Just Ordered Parts to Build Computer, Thoughts? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Yes. Raid 0 is striping. This is where your computer will write to the two separate drives to increase write speeds. Hence you will need 2. m 0 l whosBlu August 31, 2012 12:50:43 PM oh ok, from all the videos i watch, they say they will raid 0 their SSD Drive, but never mention they have 2, but thanks m 0 l mikerockett August 31, 2012 12:58:02 PM No problem, other than that, everything else in your system seems fine. m 0 l whosBlu August 31, 2012 1:11:41 PM Also, do you think i can run the games i listed to the standards i posted of recording, and High and MAYBE Ultra Texture Details? m 0 l mikerockett August 31, 2012 1:23:03 PM I'd estimate about 40-50 fps in BF3 on max settings at 1920x1080 which is probably the most demanding of the games so you should be fine. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
