thats awesome, i personally prefer AMD though (mainly because of intel cost and im a kid)
Dec 07, 2009 @ 05:38
I wanna get into the whole building computer thing any tips?
Dec 07, 2009 @ 08:50
usually its good if you have someone in real life to help you decide on parts on help you build it

like my dad used to build them so thats how i know how
Dec 08, 2009 @ 10:24
all you need is a pretty good idea of each part in the computer, then it's just like puttin legos together

new build i'm about to do:

ASUS P7P55 Deluxe Motherboard &
Intel Core i7 860 Processor
8GB Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 295 Video Card (X2)
Intel 160GB Solid State Drive
Lite-On Blu-Ray Combo
Lite-On Internal DVD Writer
Thermaltake VH600LBWS Armor+ Full-Tower ATX Case with Liquid Cooling
Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB Hard Drive 7200rpm
Linksys WMP600N Dual-Band Wireless-N PCI Adapter
Ultra X3 ULT40070 1600-Watt Power Supply
Dec 08, 2009 @ 17:52
im looking into the armor+ also.

and how is solid state drive VS. WD Raptor?
Dec 09, 2009 @ 11:13
raptor's a waste of money
u can get similar performance with raid 0 for less money and you get more storage

and why u gonna get a couple 295's when u can get a couple 5970's that run cooler and faster with dx11 instead
Dec 09, 2009 @ 13:51
not a big ATI fan and the nvidia card i chose can do the just job just as well or even better imo
Dec 09, 2009 @ 18:00

you sure?
Dec 09, 2009 @ 18:51
like i said i'm good with my choice for now
Dec 09, 2009 @ 18:52
and cause the 5970 is soo much money

i remember when the EVGA 285's were 1200$ each last year
Dec 09, 2009 @ 18:56
well the 295's are about $500+ but are beginning to be sold out everywhere..the main reason too that i don't want the ati card because i don't want an amd processor
Dec 09, 2009 @ 20:35
i hate ati, i always use nvidia, and AMD is only SLIGHTY worse than Intel and at about 1/3rd of the price
Dec 09, 2009 @ 21:16
u dont need an amd processor to run an ati card..
Dec 10, 2009 @ 15:08
that's what i've been saying. i'm going intel so the nvidia 295 is the top card we have right now so that's what i'm getting i don't want an AMD processor
Dec 11, 2009 @ 10:38
oh you don't? i always thought so...maybe i just might look into it now
Dec 17, 2009 @ 02:45
Dec 17, 2009 @ 13:49
i fell in love with that case from day 1 until recently when i saw the $800+ price i was like hell naw
Dec 17, 2009 @ 15:32
lol yeah still not as bad as zalmans heatpipe case. i think its msrp was 1400?

did anyone used to mod their cases? I used to. simple shit like making windows and lights and extra fan ports, painting. but nothing hardcore like making theme cases or just make one from scratch
Dec 18, 2009 @ 19:33
nah i'm def. not good with my hands like that
Dec 19, 2009 @ 03:13

Yes i know the wire management is bad, im too lazy to fix it hah.
Dec 19, 2009 @ 08:54
lol IDE cable
Dec 19, 2009 @ 11:29
dude my HDD is still IDE too, i need a new one tho, i have about 15 gb's left (200gb total)
Dec 19, 2009 @ 12:32

Dec 19, 2009 @ 14:07
