I just don't agree that 1333 has the best price/performance ratio. The next processors from intel will support 1600+ from the box so....I am not...
I would get DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1866. Other than that the build looks good.
Indeed. But that would increase the cost of the set up. Sure I can get a sound card later if I think it is needed but I'm talking out of the box...
It is the lack of reviews for the edifier speakers that I find really weird. The only reviews I could find are in german. :(
Which configuration would you pick :
Edifier S730D + mainboard optical/coaxial or
Corsair sp2500 + sound card (Asus xonar dx/creative titanium hd)...
Quiet systems and "stock" coolers don't mix very well :p
I had to replace my stock i5 2500k cooler as it was too loud for me.
Overclocking is a good...
A 240gb ssd seems like the best deal at this time as in cost/capacity ratio.
Oddly enough, reseating the card fixes graphical corruption in games for my gtx 460. For a while anyways, the problems come back in 2-3 months...
The sensor of my old habu mouse died after a power outage, so I guess anything's possible where sudden lack of power is involved :P
Any gtx 570 will do. You can mix and match manufacturers as you please.
SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC ...
Or the higher wattage models if you can afford it/ need it.
CPU - Intel Core i5-2500K, the 2600k hold no advantage for gaming over the 2500k.
CASE - go for one of the Cooler Master HAF series. Whichever one...
This is what I would get if I were you :
SeaSonic Platinum-1000 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PL...
Did it start happening all of a sudden or was it like that since first boot?
Were the dots present all the time or just sometimes?
Perhaps but I don't wanna end up with a glorified 450.
Measured with GPU-Z, they never go above 66 degrees.
The newegg item page is filled with people who's cards have died close to the 1 year mark.
For the last few days I have been getting "blue dots" over the textures in skyrim. Just now it also happend in mw3 :shadedshu
So I went ahead and...
I would just use the standard heatsink the cpu comes with and try to find some 1866 rated memory.
Everything else seems fine.
Get well soon !
Thanks for your work! :rockout:
Yea well my POS Gigabyte gtx 460 which has given me a lot of headaches has an ASIC quality of 110.3%. :ohwell:
PCI-E 3.0 x8 = PCI-E 2.0 x16
You will be fine no worries. Enjoy your new hardware.
Thank you for the review. Hopefully nvidia is strapped in tight cuz amd is taking them on one hell of a ride.
Price range is ~130$/100euro. Really wish I was in the US when it comes to buying electronics.
