    Post your gpu's ASIC quality

    I think I hit my GPU's limit. With voltage and fan speed maxed (+87mv, fan was 100%, giving me 59-60°C), open air, I managed to bench my 970 at 1356MHz core (+305, boosts to around ~1545mhz avg in valley, max is ~1590mhz) and 7.92GHz memory (+420 or so). Even that was not super stable, I'd say...

    Post your gpu's ASIC quality

    Just spent some time overclocking my 970 last night. It's a full reference nvidia model (the one with the Titan cooler) and has 72% ASIC Is this above/below average? Especially considering its reference. It was stable for heaven and 3dmark (I think I saw one artifact at one point, but I...

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    212 evo should fit I thought, and I recently read a comparison of 200r and 300 v2 and the 200r was favored for some pretty good reasons

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    True, but aren't they in store pickups? If I can get that deal for him I will definitely replace the i5 with i7 and add in a good drive

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    Yeah ik for game the Tahiti LE is much faster. I was just unsure about CS6 And I'll look into the velociraptors, though that may be a later upgrade just like the SSD if we don't get one on sale

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    •the extra space isn't a problem, and there's not many mATX cases around the 200r's price that are equal quality and ease of use (at least I thought, I could be wrong) •would a 660 really be much faster than a Tahiti LE? And he wanted the best card under 250 so I thought it would be a good deal...

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    I'll look at the CPU+mobo combo, but the GPU I chose is a Tahiti LE, not Pitcairn

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    I must have been crazy not to choose the Asrock one, though the gigabyte ones a bit expensive He's not doing much audio, and a velociraptor isn't cheap....right?

    Thoughts on ~$1,050 build for Photoshop/after effects

    I understand maybe Asrock, but I thought gigabytes more budget motherboards weren't great while I've heard good things about the G45 Which ones are you thinking of?

    Your PC ATM

    I've looked at it, it's about 1/2-1 Inches too big to fit where I keep my pc Around 16.5 is the max I could fit, but 15.5-16 would be preferable Hmm, might be a good thought, problem is it would require buying an OEM Copy of w7(yes I know I can transfer it over w/o a new Os, but I'd rather...
