i hear memphis can be pretty rough?
a place of pimps and hoes where everything goes!
I f'ing love Memphis!!! The people there are extremely friendly! Biel St. is the bomb! Too bad I don't drink anymore.
Oh, I am in the middle of building a Spider plat. myself, just waiting on a new Phenom to come my way.
yes memphis is loads of fun but the crime in that city is terrible!
but i was born and raised there so it was a big change moving to east tn
i do miss it though
what gpus r u using for your spider?
Thanks for pointing that out. When I said increase I meant the speed at which its done.
i figured it was something like that i just wanted to clarify and make shure
haha im sry but i every time i look at your avatar for more than 2 seconds i crack up laughing because my mom has a cat that looks just like and i think of it every time i see it lol
does he have the same glasses?
haha no i dont think so, but i dont live with her anymore so maybe the cat went and got a pair...who knows
just found this board on newegg
its only 149 after rebate...might have to go with this instead... anyone know of any probs with this board
there are 2 combo deals that im looking at. they are at the bottom of this link
i was looking at the last 2....what do yall think of these deals?
the phenom + hard drive and phenom+ X2
id grab the CPU+HDD
id go with an asus mobo
what kind of performance diff is there between 8600Sli (your current setup) and the new 9600?
a long time ago you HAD to spend big bucks on GFX card to get good frames, not anymore
I second that Stay with names that you can trust to be a solid platform for your build. That kinda money dont cut corners to save a few bucks.
well i think my sli set is just a tad slower than the 9600gt but not really sure...and i think your right i will stick with the asus mother board
if the Sli is a tad slower id sell them both and grab the 9600
you could prolly get enough from the sale of those two cards to puchase the 9600
id rather sell them and just get something else....i really had my heart set on the X2's
besides i think i might sell my old computer(the one i use now <---) as a whole deal instead of just selling everything part by part...however i would prob get more money from it the other way...
im always thinking price/performance after my 850pe purchase
if you have your mind set on the x2 you cant go wrong with it and the price should drop down a bit making it an even better buy
i think you would do better to piece out your sys vs selling it as a whole
plus if you went 9600 it wouldnt exactly be a spider
that what i was thinking
water or air...
ive been trying to decide on what i should do to cool this rig.
i originally wanted to water cool but it would be allot cheaper to use a top dollar hs
than to build a custom h2o setup...
here is what i had in mind for the water coolin setup:
2 of these pumps $210
2 of these Radiators $100
5ft of tubing $6.25
2 gpu water blocks$300
haha as you can see this is quite expensive it adds up to be about $720.00!!! before shipping
so i think its pretty clear i wont be doing water cooling at least not right way!:shadedshu
but who knows maybe i will down the road somewhere...
Lol, I live in Milwaukee. It's mostly ghetto except the east side. To me, it seems even in the shady areas of Memphis people are nicer.
ha the people are only nice to me because they want my "spare change"
nonononononono! frozenCPU is THE most expensive place to order from
heres a list of some stores
i HIGHLY reccomend petrastech awesome service, great prices and good shipping
that pump you dont need, get 2 regular D5 varios
for rads id go with swifty mcr320's
mcTDX is a good block but youd get slightly better performance with a Dtek with nozzles
GPU's id go with Ek's
why 3/8" ? id go with 7/16" on 1/2" barbs you save on clamps
do some shopping around before you buy it could save you lots
thanks intel haha i know frozen cpu is expensive i dont think i would buy from there i just wanted to see what it would add up to and since they have a good selection i just did it all from that one site but ill check out the other sites!
but yea i agree ek wn would be better for the x2 but again this wasnt really what i intend on buying i just wanted a ballpark figure of how much everything would be.
I agree here completely, I have petra's pumps, swiftech radz(220 & 320), and 1/2ID tubing. I use swiftech water blocks for CPU NB and SB with Dtek nozzles and I really really love the temps I get. for my GPU I use a EK full cover water block.
Intel Igent - its hilarious how you just listed the parts of my system!!! Good choice on parts!!!
ALSO - check sidewindercomputers.com for your parts. he has great deals and he is very very fast with shipping. He is really good about answering questions in a timely manner also. I always check him, along with xtreme, crazypc, and frozen for prices.
thanks for the sites intel and asb
i appreciate your help and your suggestions!
just bought a second EK full cover for my crossfire water rig. Bought a new reservior and a bunch of little accesories. Got the full cover from frozen CPU and got everything else from sidewindercomputers. I highly recommend him for any purchase. The prices are great, the service is even better. The guy who runs it, his name is gary, if you email him with any questions, he responds fast, and helps. Its nice talking to someone who knows their products.
So when you go to make your purchases, be sure to check out sidewindercomputers.com!! Im positive all will go smoothly!
