Building of the BIG RIG!
Right well Ive been away for some time now doing my lil job in the Sandpit. But Im back now so im doing a lil treating for myself. I was just going to upgrade, bur I thought I would go the whole hog and Ive invested into a whole new rig!!! yaaaaaaay!!

So far this is what I have got......

AMD FX 6100 6-CORE AM3+ 3.3GHZ BULLDOZER PROCESSOR BLACK EDITION
GSKILL 8GB DDR3 1333 CL9-9-9-24 RIPJAWS X and x4 = 32gb
ASROCK SKT-AM3+ 880GMH/U3S3 MOTHERBOARD
Powercool GT 800W PSU 80+ Power Supply Black Red
2x samsung dvd/cd writers
1x lg blu ray /dvd writer to burn blu-rays
1x WD 80gb SSD HD
2x 2TB Seagate HDs

Thats what Ive ordered so far and are on route to me as you read. Problem is the GPU and the case.

I have already got.....

8600 GT
8800 GT
540 Something? Never used it
Asus GTX 550Ti

I got a thing for GPUs, so I want something with WOW... but I dont want to spend silly money on something that I can get 300 quid cheaper i 1 year. I been off the scene for 7 months out there so I dont know whats L337 and whats waste... lil help on this one please???

The case I dont mind, I will se something and make it happen. Once I got it all together I will then start thinking of water cooling, but I just want to get it all together first.

What you think guys???

7970 kicks ass, but i've heard good things about the 7950... Selling all those would give you the cash to buy the newest and best

RE: Building of the BIG RIG!
get at least a 120GB SSD.. you'll be happy later. My 60GB only has like 12GB and thats with out any games other than BF3 on there which will be comming off soon...don't play it enought to justify it on the SSD. Move it to the 1TB HDD... You really don't want the CPU you have picked. Look for a Phenom X6 for it would be a lot better than the Bulldozer X6. And I would say spend the little extra for the 990FX northbridge. As for the graphic. if you want a good card and don't mind a few generations old look for a 5870 or maybe even a 6950/6970. All three of those cards should be fairly cheap and have already lost there shinny new generation placard. I myself still have a 5850 and Am happy with it but have been thinking about a new card for the extra on card memory. Which would help me out at the resolution I am running 5760*1080 <- oh yeah... sweet sweet eyefinity action!

Also if your really thinking about water cooling later down the road you can't go wrong with the Cooler Master 690II Advanced. VERY roomy mid-tower case with the space fir two 240mm Rad's(2x120mm).

P.S. now after i read that you have already ordered the parts and I really don't want to delete the stuffs I typed....

But for the case I say go CM 690II and for the GPU either 5870 or 6950.... <- that is of course if your running a 1920x1080 resolution.

RE: Building of the BIG RIG!
If you have the money and want a great case that won't EVER run out of room. Dude go with the corsair obsidian 800D by far the BEST money I have gotten out of a case.... Hell and I have not finished putting it together!

RE: Building of the BIG RIG!
I'd go with the HD 7970 if you're gonna spend that much. Cheaper than the 6990 and more powerful.

RE: Building of the BIG RIG!
Yes. They will out preform the 7970 but that's expected from a dual GPU card. And it's the last generation do I will fall in price a bit more but not as much as it did after the 7xxx series.

RE: Building of the BIG RIG!
no need to get a dual gpu unless your planning to push a 4+ monitor setup. the 7970 will run a 3 monitor system comfortably and with damn good graphics doing it. and for the money, the 7970 is the better choice.
