How does this look so far, did I leave anything out?
Newegg.com Shopping Cart
You are not going to believe this lol...wait one.
I was going to say that was crazy...
Need to build a wishlist, screenshot your cart, or link to products. By giving a link to your cart just calls on us viewing whats in our own personal carts currently.
Updated first post.
See if it worked
That will never work...not the same as mine.
LOL @ rick
Not bad Johnny.
I asked this on another thread but what cooler brackets work with this socket?
1156 coolers are compatible to 1155.
id ditch that A Data SSD and get a OCZ Vertex 2 120GB. much better for only $20 more
According to wizzards review the Adata is a better value.
alright. good to know
I went with this motherboard instead GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3 LGA, I figured it was better since it had a 2nd PCI-E 16x slot for when I get a 2nd 6950.
Is that actually going to matter over the ASUS board I had in the first post?
well sandy bridge can't run dual GPU at full x16 lanes unless you get an Evga board with the NF200 chip when release. Other then that your stuff at x8/x8
the UD7 claims 16x16x8x8 same as the P55 versions
hes not getting the UD7??????
What does this mean performance wise?
you are right the asus does dual at 8 x 8
Means very little to be honest. I run my 470s 8X8 due to the spacing Even benches dont show much loss if any, I haven't seen it at least.
well i know for a fact if you try to run a gtx580 or hd5970 at x8 x8 then your performance will go down by like 5% or more. Might not be an issue for OP. just something to consider
I've done some personal tests with running at 8x8x vs 16x16x
Its such a small difference that I couldn't tell, however I'd be more interested in whats the slowest slot, since I run a raid controller card, and also a 9800GTEE for physx.
That Asus board is a solid. I've never overclocked so easily before. Such a breeze!
Now I wish I went with the ASUS board just for that fancy BIOS it has...
funny enough, I also came from a q6600!
