    No offense, but you're wasting your cash. You simply buy the most expensive stuff you can get and probably have no clue why.

    You don't need that much, of course, if you're rich and want that much that's fine. Do you even have enough data to store on 2tb hard drive? I have to agree with Banjoman, do some research and don't just buy the most expensive stuff you can find. :toast:

    Looks to me like you just cut and pasted that list.

    And you wont want a QX6850 for that mobo anyway, the FSB is wrong.

    And what the heck is a gaming network interface card? I'm gonna go look that up

    first off welcome to the TPU forums

    as others have mentioned it seems you may be spending too much money for what your goals are.

    i suggest you make a new post in the "general hardware" section and call it something like "need help building a new rig" and be sure to list what your budget is and explain what you want your rig to be capable of doing.

    it is a common practice for people to do this and there are people here who would love to help you. :p

    lol guys thanks for the reply,

    well i will look at my list again and edit it. and thanks guys for your honest opinion and thanks for the welcome guys.

    well i have to do alot of research before i buy unwanted stuff. I hear you guys and now i understand that most of my things in the list are unwanted, like the 2TB harddrive. i think 500 GB is enough for me right now.

    yeah so thanks guys for the help and honest opinions.

    lol cuzza and drunken mafia, you guys are funny lol.

    and what is a FSB cuzza ??

    You mite want to rethink the board tho',maybe a high end asus/gigabyte p35/x38 board would be better than the intel board.

    The Killer™ Gaming Network Card from Bigfoot Networks is designed to reduce lag and latency often experienced in high action interactive MMO and First Person Shooter games. Killer accelerates your game data for a smoother more responsive online gaming experience and a competitive edge.
    Improved Responsiveness
    Bypasses the Windows® network stack reducing
    in-game ping and giving you the edge you need.
    Smoother Gameplay When it Matters Most
    Offloads all network processing from the CPU to boost frame rates, especially during moments of intense action.
    Faster Game Data
    Game network packets are prioritized so they get to and from your game faster.





    Haaahaaaa. Now I am with you. Man I have never heard of that shit before... It sounds like a gimick to me.

    BTW Rev, How is the rig goin'. Have you bought any parts yet..

    Yea it's complete gimmick. I remember reading a review of it, and it gave a ping of about 2 ms lower on average and no boost in framerates.

    Yeah, results are mixed, Gamers "say" it works better but the benchmarks don't realy show any promise. Here's an example of that. (many more reviews say the same). Only good results are from user comments and feedback and those are also a mixed bag.

    EDIT:
    W1zard also reviewed the card in question - http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Bigfoot_Networks/KillerNIC_M1

    User comments on pointless crap are always biased, people have to try to justify wasting their money!
