This is what I am thinking about building for my future Bulldozer based gaming PC.
cool?... being that some of those parts aren't released can't really commit on how good it will be. it at least looks very nice.
Hmm fair enough you didn't ditch that 932, after all you've done to it! You got me worried for a moment till I read the post!
Nice! My only future upgrades going to be 4x HD6870s or 2x6970s
Jeez and I'm still fighting to replace that old g92 card I'm using! Well tbh, its gonna be hard upgrading since I don't game anymore and if thats so, its old games like total war, company of heroes etc. Maybe crysis 2 will be a nice excuse!
My HAF-932 hasent had enough gaming hours, I'll make sure Bulldozer takes care of that
Not even a little dabble with Left 4 Dead 2 or something
Why not go with a tad bigger SSD (maybe 60 to 100GB) and the new H70 to cool that beast? Also, I like what you have going there but would like the WD 640 Blacks in raid and a 2tb Green for backup. Just suggestions. Looks like a beast though. Makes me want it
looks like a solid setup. I just question the H-50...
In terms of whether it's going to be compatable with Bulldozer or not?
Bulldozer should run cooler than our current Phenom II's from looking at AMD's slides.
Sounds like a very nice setup Super XP but a rig like that deserves to be hooked up to a 55" LED TV - not a 24" monitor
loving the build! 750tx still ftw
Looks like Bulldozer's going to be a repeat of Thuban...
And once Bulldozer wipes out Sandy what will you say then
I'd reserve judgement untill they refresh there performance lineup. Which there not supposed to be doing untill the end of 2011.
i would swap those 2 250GB wd drives for more dense drives... say the 1platter 500/667 drives.
Samsung 500GB F3 for example.
You might want to look deeper into the bulldozer architecture before assuming it will match sandybridge where relevant to you. It's heavily oriented for business markets because that's where the real money is and that's where they've been clobbered by intel. Prioritizing multi-threading over single, which will negatively affect most games.
exactly, massive +1.
All this talking up products before theyre realesed reminds me of sports fans arguing about who is going to win before the match, completely and utterly useless, nobody can possibly win the argument.
It would be nice if people could just wait until all the cards are on the table to comment, instead of saying things like "...once Bulldozer wipes out Sandy..." (just an example nt300, there are hunderds of these lately)
I've been noticing more and more of this lately, above all Sandry Bridge vs Bulldozer, and Nvidia not being able to do a thing about ATI's 6000 series.
Honestly I expected more from some of our members.
back on track... Nice possible build Super XP
Havent you read the details? multithreading gets a nice boost of performance and with AMDs turbo mode they should get even more performance in single thread apps and games.
There's talk that the HD 6800 series is going to be super fast, perhaps only one will do for my future setup unless Northern Islands gets released that is
We did not compromise single threaded performance to achieve better multithreaded performance.
unless they can increase their l1D and put L1I back in the core or they'll never able to beat nehalem...bigger cache means better performance. it doesn't matter if the die size will increase to 400mm^2. as long as it's high end market demand. go for it. who f*** cares about mainstream user anyway?
I wouldn't bet on that.
Pretty much every company in the world who actually wants to sell stuff cares.
Gotta disagree there.
Exactly, companies usually target the sweet spot, cause its these chips that sell most. For example, intel's chips that outclass all other cpu's, the extremes especially, sell but don't sell loads like for example the middle range chips like the i5's and entry level i7's etc. Thats where the companies get more revenue. That is, if you have the brains to buy a decent chip and OC it!
If cache is so important then explain why the the Pentium D was dog slow compared to the Athlon X2 which had less cache.
