Description

This is an updated build from the one from july!

the original build can be found here: http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/b/xjC

Like i said in my other recent build: http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/b/zf2

Amazon messed up and advertised the 7850 for 70$. i managed to get two! replacing my gigabyte 560TI, i installed the 7850 in crossfire. Before, i played Battlefield 3 at 40-50 FPS. After Crossfiring it, i get 60FPS with v-sync on.

First picture is the original build, with the single 560TI.

ive added another 500GB HDD, and another 1TB harddrive i got from black friday (got it for 50$) let me know what you guys think!

Like how you put a fan on both sides of the hyper 212. That case is gettin a little crowded though.

Are you planning on using those two 500GB HDDs in a RAID configuration? Otherwise you could've gotten a 1TB Seagate Barracuda for $67.99.

I reused the 500GB ones: )

I would still recommend running the two 500GB's in raid and use the 1TB as backup.

It is, I'm surprised no one caught the price drop. In the other hand, if the product pages the same in the us, it should work. Also, yes I could've done that, but I'm satisfied that I got my crossfire for 160. I sold my 560 for that pricw. Tbh idont need the extra profit :)

Very nice. The only thing I would change if I were you is the power supply. OCZ PSU's are notorious for dying and frying everything as they do it. I recommend a Seasonic of at least 700W. :)

this is my last build with OCZ, i will be going for Corsair or seasonic :). ive used OCZ for a long time and i feel i can still trust them.... for now XD

I could understand if it was a really good sale, but I would never pay full price for an OCZ power supply. Also, if you have no need for Corsair's "Link" application, go with Seasonic.

gets an unclockable cpu with a z77 overclockable motherboard with a aftermarket heatsink Windows 7 Ultimate, wait wut? Not sure about the OCZ PSU either, unless it was free or something.

Well, I saw the link to the original, and that was like 5 months ago... Well, everyone makes mistakes

The 3450 is over clockable. Just to a certain extent. The Ivy bridge runs hotter, so I figured why not. Windows was free from my friend:Msdn subscription.

Did you overclock the 3450? If so was it Prime stable?

  • 84 months ago

I did. Overclocked it to 4.0GHz, prime 95 for 20 hours, still stable

Nice, you should edit the clock speed on your build then =D
