I have two build ideas , which one is better :

Build 1 : $1,563.00

Build 2 :$1,543.56

I prefer myself the first one , but which one is more balanced , which one has more power , etc . thx :D 

More about : build

yhea , just wait for Star Citizen , a gtx680 won't max that .

-I asked which one is more balanced and which one is better , performance wise
December 9, 2012 12:49:20 PM

they both are not good. just ask people like bigcyco1 or g-unit1111

nuh , i mean its like for futureproofing (yhea i know this isn't so valid ) . But i'm gonna use the better parts in it to upgrade to 2011 , then pull all of it apart to make one secondary build also :\

pick my build its faster than your if you want LGA 2011 say im gona put one!
December 9, 2012 4:23:53 PM

there is no point of a 2011 chip if you are not rendering work for more than 6hrs a day. x79 is meant for work or extreme high end gaming (although it doesnt perform any better than a i5 in games

2011 is not good for games because

-6 cores are meaningless in games
-its more expensive for the same performance
-performs less than a i5 in games
-uses more power

lagerLV's build

-i7s are also useless in games
-the formula board is hopelessly overkill. doubt he has a VERY good headset
-fisher price watercooling is not watercooling
-ok on the ram but not useful if you ask me
-corsair SSDs are not any better than any other sandforce with toggle flash drives
-7870 is not top end gaming although it is the best bang for the buck
-half xm is way better

actually have razer orca :D  , and i'm positive on the fisher price watercooling , i'm going with the formula +2x8gb red vengeance (1866) . haf X is my favourite case .

1600mhz memory performs the same

get a haf xm then

( i havent found the corsair 760i so i put one with the same price just to see the overall price, i still want the 760i)

-maximus v formula is useless unless you have a good 100+ dollar headset
-fast ram is useless
-more ram is useless for your situation
-ram wont fit
-samsung 830 256gb is a better option for the SSD
-cheaper 670s
-haf x is a waste of space
-no point of a 760i. no advantages of using it whatsoever. you are going to use all the wires attached to the power supply anyways for this build

get this instead

-note: this ram overclocks like mad
December 11, 2012 12:08:33 PM

-i have a good headset
-what do you mean by RAM wont fit ?
-the samsung 256gb is too expensive
-the gigabyte 670 is the the best power /price
-I LIKE THE HAF X so much :D 
-that ram is ugly :( 

i think ill go with

December 11, 2012 12:17:28 PM

-good headset is something from sennihiser or astro. others are not worth driving. another one is steelseries 7h
-heatsinks on vengeance ram are the size of combs. will NEVER fit under the D14 cooler
-saying the SSD is expensive is total bs. you can get a gigabyte z77x-up4 th which has better overclocking and thunderbolt and it would be a 100 dollars cheaper and would perform the same. you can totally afford it
-the haf xm is the same. just smaller and better built
-you wont see anything under the D14.

ok i can go up to 1600$ , so why not profit ?
December 11, 2012 3:51:14 PM

there is no performance gains whatsoever. that is the whole point.
