  1. The Maximus V Extreme has a GREAT built in soundcard! Use that one.
  2. thanks, i was looking a the Xonar phoebus but wanted to make sure, anything else i can improve on tho?
  3. Why 7 Ultimate?

    Why such a large PSU? Even in triple SLI you'd only need an 850W.
  4. ive got asus maximus with xf2 audio its alrite but xonar dx was a huge diffrence in clarity at high levels .now on Xonar phoebus .dx excelent card for the money.
  5. get atleast 128 ssd thats only thing holding comp back.
  6. i chose a large psu for expand ability, i will someday in the future add more hardware that may require the additional power
  7. so if i add a 128 gig ssd, i can just put the other 3 drives in raid 0?
  8. wouldna buy 3770 get a 3570k and get cheaper gfx card cause new range of cards be out not long after x mas.
  9. really?what could we expect from the cards?
  10. *new cards
  11. Higher performance at a lower power consumption.

    That's why a 1200W PSU is absolutely useless.


    Look at the power consumption from the 4XX-6XX series! You'll notice the power consumption has dropped a ton.
  12. its always gonna be the same every 6 months get new cards got to be wise wot gfx cards ya buy . spending £200 plenty for wot you need.
  13. ur right, i ran the numberspower needs have gone down, what poer supply do u recommend?
  14. so what video card do u u think i should get? i prefer nvidia cards

    A gtx 670 is about 5% slower than a 680 for a much better price.
  16. 4 or 2 gig version?

    A corsair, or seasonic, any good manufacturer etc etc 750w would be more than adequate even if you wanted to go sli in the future.
