Couldn't agree more, and much more satisfying.
I would love to build my own, but alas I haven't had a chance
I love building my own PCs. It's really fun and gratifying. Currently working on my own dream machine as we speak. Sams is overkill LOL.
Not yet it isn't, still waiting on that PSU...
Corsair 1KW I presume?
Zalman ZM850-HP actually.
Aha, good choice
Chosen due to the acoustic performance of its bigger brother the ZM1000. By far the most I've ever paid for a PSU, double what I paid for the HX520.
Yeah but with PSUs that quiet, do the small differences really matter? Last I checked, noise was never a problem with any quality PSU.
Yes and more expensive than my 620HX by a fair bit as well. I don't intend to get a new one any time soon, cable routing and all. Nor do I have any intention whatsoever to get more than 2 cards. The performance gains are there, but I don't think they justify the price of 2 4870X2s.
Well, they do matter when you use as much load as four GPUs pull...
Well that Zalman is surely up to the task
check my edit
Ultimately, Dual graphics are a bit of a farse even at 1920x1200, It's merely the absurd pixel count of 2560x1600 that makes the difference.
Well I certainly got some impressive gains at 1920 res. But you pretty much NEED 2560 to see a difference from 4 GPUs.
Dream PC - I hope this thread isn't dead
PC #1 - Core i7 Build =D
Mobo: ASUS Rampage II
CPU: Intel Ci7 965
RAM: Corsair XMS3 12GB (what is the highest quality DDR3 Ram anyways!?)
HD: 2x VelociRaptors in Raid
GPU: 2x 4870 + 4870x2
Everything else? Who cares... =D
Build 2 - Skulltrail setup...
Anything that works in the setup!! C'mon 2x C2DX!!!! That would kick ass!!!
Pff, forget the 965, there's a 975 coming out soon!
You seen this?
1 or 27 just imagine it now it'd be like the matrix.
mushkin and corsair ram ocz is alright, asus rampage extreme II is overkill no need for something like that get a asus p6t or a asus deluxe v2.
ITs all sound like people are moving towards newest technologies. That's why i am here to SPAM you and try to get your credit card details.
It's not trolling if you openly admit it....
I believe the last half of the message was from a mod.
