  1. Didn't i see you somewhere asking for build questions ?
    I think it's the third thread.
  2. Yes. and this is the final build. Just wanna make sure everything works because I did change a few things.
  3. I can understand, you feel undecided.
    Is this for gaming ?
  4. gaming/video editing. It's my first build, dont blame me.
  5. In my opinion you should get a noctua nh-d14, a 670 gtx for better value, and an ips monitor.
  6. I understand the 2 first changes u wanna make, but I play FPS only. So I need a 2ms/120hz monitor.
  7. Why especifically do u prefer the noctua. and, can I max out games like bf3 on ultra settings with the 670 at 50-60 fps without any problems?
  8. I'm not sure if you get 120 fps in BF3 with a 680 gtx @1080p, cod series yes, but bf3, i don't think so.
  9. What would I need to max out games like that? SLi?
  10. A 670/680 gives ~60 fps @1080 ultra on BF3.
    If you really need 120 fps, then yes, a sli setup might be needed.
    But in my opinion it's not worth it, an ips with 5ms is still good for those games, unless you're a professional.
  11. I know what u mean. the only way to take advantage from the 120hz monitor is if u get more than 60 fps, it's hard to reach that number on Bf3 but im sure I can get 100fps on Counter Strike
  12. Yes I'm a hardcore gamer. So Im grabbing anything that will increase my performance in game. And u didn't tell me why u prefer the noctua
  13. Yes, you'll get that in cs.
    The noctua nh-d14 has about the same performance as the h100i, but it's more quiet, and it's cheaper.
  14. Ok. Ill listen to u. Ill get the noctua.
    670 2GB or 4GB? I prefer EVGA but they dont make 670's 4GB. And what about the rest of the computer? Anything u would change? thanks man
  15. Best answer
    2GB version is more than enough for 1080p, no need to spend more for the extra ram.
    This might help you decided :
  16. Would u change anything else on the my build?
  17. Well if you're into editing the i7 is useful, if it's for gaming, the i5 is the best choice.
    Also check if that ram isn't that expensive usually for 1866 speeds, you'll pay too much, a dual channel kit with 16GB ram rated at 1600mhz is what you need.
  18. will the 1866 perform better than the 1600? If yes i dont mind paying a bit more
  19. Best answer selected by darkthings.
  20. In that board it's going by default 1600mhz.
    My suggestion, if i'm not mistaken you're from canada, so i'll just put a link :

    It's basically what i recommend overall, except the keyboard,mouse.
    It's led backlit the monitor, 120hz, 2ms.
    There's also other :

    I'm not saying the acer monitor is bad, but it's not led backlit.
  21. ok, third post u make about a rig.

    i think ur trolling, waste of time.
  22. As far as 120Hz monitors go, I've heard bad things about the acer monitor on the gaming circuit. Most of the people I play against use the Asus or Samsung monitors - I personally have a BenQ and can't recommend it enough; it's got a few extras up its sleeve that give an advantage, while being perfectly legal in tournaments. (Black equalization, for example.)
  23. interesting darksable, what u mean by extra ups, doubt any gaming leagues would ban a monitor.
  24. thanks man rly helped
  25. I was just making a few changes man. dont hate me
  26. i dont hate but over 3 threads is a waste dude cmon, next time pm me alot easier :) cheers.
  27. alright bro :)
  28. like i said, anytime u need pm me, ill be glad to h3lp
