    Overclocking Z68/P67 System - Advice?

    lol, I can get what you are saying. I also want to overclock my GPU as well, thus explaining why I'm choosing an MSI GPU. Afterburner FTW So what CPU can you recommend for high overclocking? (4.6-5.3 ghz)

    Which systems to build?

    Quite a few people have been asking for new bulldozer systems to be built from me. I've heard that Bulldozer has been a flop. One of the systems I'm building is for a guy who wants to use the Radeon 6790, but he doesn't know if he wants FX 4100 or i5 2300. I've heard that AMD cards and AMD...

    NVIDIA Readies GeForce GTX 560 to Counter Radeon HD 6950

    Memory bandwidth The GTX 560 is meant to counter the radeon 6950 1GB VERSION. The 2gb version is against the 560 ti. ATM Nvidia have a pretty good case against the radeon 6950 (a good card) and their own direct competitors are cheaper.

    Are Intel motherboards any good?

    I'm probably never going to use smart response and integrated graphics. P67 is good enough for any gamer.

    Are Intel motherboards any good?

    Hi. At the moment I'm building systems for people and I've been wondering; are Intel motherboards any good? I've heard that they are reliable but the system I'm building is for a gamer wanting an i5 2500k and GTX 560 ti. Is the DP67BG good for gaming and is it a good motherboard? Just another...

    Thermaltake A30?

    Hello. I'm building a micro atx system for my mate and I want to ask a few questions about it. 1: Is it Easy to work with, or is it hell to access? 2: Does it already have stand offs for the motherboard? 3: Can it get really crouded with millions of cables? I think cases are pretty damn...

    Sabertooth 990FX or Crosshair V?

    I've seen the Ud7 - LOADS OF FLIPPING SLOTS!!! I read some benchmarks to seee that the Crosshair V and Sabertooth had highest scores. Here in England its like a £10 difference. He'll be playing Metro Last Light, Crysis 2, Team Fortress 2, Skyrim, Just Cause 2 (still playing it, but its...

    Bulldozer Information Thread.

    Hi guys. I've been using my trusty i7 2600k and GTX 580 for a year, but Bulldozer is coming, and it looks incredible. So I might upgrade to Bulldozer in a couple years, when "Next Generation Bulldozer" is released (source:wikipedia). So I just wanted to know - what do you think about...

    New midtower for my build

    I use a HAF 922, its awesome. But I would still recommend the Corsair Obsidian 650D, its so easy to work with. No screws or anything. It has stand off points for any ATX motherboard, it has a sexy paint job, and there are so many more reasons.

    Need advice on Mini-ITX build!

    Unless if you really want to use an AMD with an Intel processor for some special reason , I'd recommend an AMD processor, while Nvidia cards own more with Intel. The benchmarks prove it. GTX 560 or 460 would be a good move for you. 560 Ti if its within your budget.

    700w PSU For i7 2600k + GTX 580?

    Is a 700w PSU enough to supply an i7 2600k + a GTX 580? (Won't do much overclocking, if any?)
