I sold my old PC. It was a 2500k, 8gigs 1333, 7870.
For a little under 800 after taxes at micro center I built the following:
ASROCK Z77 pro3
8gigs of corsair vengeance 1600
evga gtx 660 super clock
dvd-rw sata drive
WD 750GB 32MB black drive
50 dollar antec case with 3 120mm and a 140mm 2 of the 120s I added that do 79cfm each
Stuff I already have:
21" 1680x1050 wide screen lcd
I reused my kingwin mk650w for now
Windows 7 64-bit home prem
I'm still doing updates and even with a 2.67 megabyte per second download speed I'm still waiting for my steam games to redownload. I could have spent the extra money for the gtx 670 but for the resolution I'll be playing at I think the 660 will do just fine.
One question. The motherboard says it'll do crossfire so does that mean it'll do sli? I plan on upgrading the PSU down the road when I do a GPU upgrade or sli.
Yeah I tried that and even changing the scaling of the fps display. I will check later but I think it could be from installing it from the dvd that came with the motherboard and not downloading the updated version if one is available.
I just un-installed VMU or whatever it is called to installed the latest version and 3d mark 11 works now. I feel stupid for installing drivers and software off of the disk that came with the board lol.
Yeah, when I built it and installed the OS it was like 11 at night and I just wanted it done lol. I have to say for this gtx 660 with a free copy of Assassin's creed 3 for only 219.99 I am very happy with it.
