Now start running some benchmarks.
What? How did that happen? I've been missing out on some secrets.
Pics or it didn't happen???!!!
Even though we know it did.
haha, I'll post pics once I'm home from school. I can remote in and start some benchmarks though! It still needs quite a few windows updates to be 100% done.
0MHz on the CPU?
That's a damn goo score for such an underclock!
lol I have turbo boost on, and my proc changes speeds quite a bit I'm pretty sure it just changed and 3dmark got confused and put 0
Picked up a 2nd GTX470 and went push/pull on the CPU HSF:
I think I'll pick up a small SSD (~60GB) to use in addition to the 320GB HDD I have right now
Couldn't help myself. I ordered 512GB Samsung 840 PRO and 3TB WD RED.
No offense, but your 480 needs upgraded, everything else you own is elite... why such an old GPU?
Tbh it has been able to handle every game I play very decently (performance at OC clocks is quite close to GTX 580). I used to have GTX 580 for a year, but then I haven't had much time to play anyway although I need ton of CPU performance.
That said, I will get GTX 780(s) or whatever comes out next year. Just because I can. Don't really need it.
Yes, it's old, but it's still wicked fast. Until today, I was rocking a GTX470 in my system..I just picked up a second one, but that was more for WCG than for any real need for speed in games
My raid is still faster , but after spending nearly $2,500 on this build I need to pay off the old credit card and gather more money for round 2.
Not really there isn't much call for serious muscle in pc gaming atm, because most everything is toned down so hard because of shitty consoles rocking nearly decade old hardware. Were not going to get better looking games until the next gen of consoles.
Which is one of the many reasons consoles need to die now!
I dont know if you guys remember my last post on here, i think my build was an
bigwater IS 760
evga 580 (mightve been the 560ti or the gtx460)
kingston 8bg ram
some unknow aprevia 650w psu
but with in the last 2 months ive been looking for deals and got some awesome deals, and even an awesome trade. With patience i slowly got rid of my old build as i progressed to my new build, spending less than 300$ if that. original "budget build" was set at 400$ now i have this rig including the monitor and desk
thanks to Techpowerup, craigslist, frys and microcenter for pricematching i hardly spent half a paycheck if anything.
Case - HafX
CPU - i7 2600k
GPU - Gigabyte SOC 580
PSU - Fatality 750 w
Mobo - MSI z77a-g45
Ram - Gskill Ripjaw 1600mhz
Antec Khuler 620 for the cpu
i was out of a job for the longest time, and while building this i kept the same mentality, apparently it payed off. i even got bf3 for free
PS, yes those are server fans. my room has carpet its nowhere near cool in this room
I know I've seen that case somewhere before, but I can't quite put my finger on it . . . . it looks very familiar . . .
theres a piece of H@ard5tuff in my room lololol, and im not talking about on my carpet lolol
Glad to see it's up and doing it's job again!
yes sir! its found a great home.
I am sorry but LOL WUT?? a GTX 480 is still a beast of a card!
I can see that, sorry it was a little dusty on the inside, but it's a damn great case, I'm kinda sorry i let it go, but I am really enjoying my new build too.
A taste . ..
