More about system look
  1. looks bad. i wont use anything in that build essentially

    -i7s arent for games
    -closed loop coolers are crap
    -you need a bigger SSD than that
    -high speed memory does nothing
    -the LX motherboard is not that great compared to a extreme4
    -power supply looks suspicious
    -reference cards suck

    id suggest this. i hope you are not buying this as a pre-built

    Bad? I did a bunch of research and thought this was good stuff...
  4. it is ok stuff.

    oh and on this forum, the OP doesnt need to do any research. we do it for them

    your build is unbalanced and has somethings that can be cheaper, or overkill, or could be way better

    Oh.. so your saying the i7 is overkill and the i5 will be just as good? Is that what you meant by the motherboard also? What part could be way better and what makes it unbalanced?
  6. if you are gaming, a i7 wont increase gaming performance, therefore overkill and useless

    your motherboard wont do SLI. mine will and has more features. it could be way better


    and yeah thats about it.
