Hello guys ! I have a question, I received my money, and I'm ordering the parts tomorrow. But, before that, I saw reviews on the GTX280 (SLi) outperforming the 4870X2. So, I decided to make another build, almost the same price. I'll list the pros and cons. What I do on my computer usually - Gaming [70%] - Chatting on IM & Internet Surfing [20%] - Servers, encoding, Photoshop, etc. [10%] I know that in my ATi build, there is no need for a Q9550. But, I just wanted to future-proof it, and if I get the Q9550 I would run servers more. NVIDIA + Intel Asustek Maximus II Formula L775 Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Processors (3.0GHz/1333/6M) - Going to O/C to 3.8GHz XFX GTX280 XXX Xtreme Edition 1GB DDR3 640M - Same price as the normal GTX280, why not get this? I'm buying 2 of it. Team Xtreem Dark PC2 8500 DDR2 1066MHz 4GB Kit CL5 (2*2GB) - OCZ cost as much as it. This is $199, OCZ Reaper is $259. I do not know what the CL5 stands for, anyone explain? Xigmatek HDT-S1238 CPU Cooler - Tom's Hardware said it was one of the best. Seagate 3.5inh SATA-II 500GB 7200RPM 32MB - RAID 0 Cooler Master NV-690 NVIDIA Edition - I was thinking that this was too small for a case with a huge motherboard and graphic card. Would it fit and allow perfect airflow in it? If not, someone recommend. OCZ GameXStream 850W Power Supply - 850W should be enough to power 2 GTX280 in SLi. blah blah blah with the rest of my stuffs (monitor, speaker, etc) cost = S$3,934SGD. ATi + Intel ASUS Maximus II Formula L775 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 (2.83GHz/1333/12M) - Going to overclock to 3.4GHz. HIS HD4870X2 2GB GDDR5 - Cost a $100 more than a single GTX280. OCZ Reaper PC2-8500/1066MHz DDR2 - Cost a few tens more than the Team Xtreem, is it worth it? Xigmatek HDT-S1238 CPU Cooler - Tom's Hardware said it was one of the best. Seagate 3.5inh SATA-II 500GB 7200RPM 32MB - RAID 0 Antec Twelve Hundred - Tower casing, for better airflow. OCZ 750W Quad CrossFireX PSU - Certified for Quad CrossFireX. blah blah blah and total price is = $3,893SGD. So, people, what do you think? Which one suits my need more?
