~(The pictures do not match the parts list) Im' curious why the builder didn't go 2011? Everything else is extremely extravagant buying all the top end stuff why not go to the top? It'd definitely had been within the budget spent.

I did some more knowing research and found he could've rolled 3970X and just all round far better stuff (except the 690s, replaced by 3 Matrix 7970s) if he had built himself.

Xareh submitter 4 Builds -1 points 59 months ago

Yeah, I know they don't match but he won't give me the actual names for stuff

MSI motherboard, Silverpower "unknown" PSU which was produced in germany and makes PSU for Tagan, really not much known about those PSUs excluding they are marketed towards EU and really hard to find information online about them. That to me is never a good sign. well 3 Matrix 7970s would not out perform 2 690s (Thats 4 x 680s SLI) With this much budget the 2011 socket would have been a way better choice all around. Not only does the CPU out perform on many levels for many different things but it is designed for multiple SLI / Crossfire, far better than the 1155 socket setup. Just looks like someone needed some guidance when choosing parts. He didn't build this himself?? O.o Did someone realize the mistakes in this build and pawn it off on him??

Silverpower is a pretty good brand. Cheggitout here.

komplett.se for about 36K Swedish Krona.

wait a second. A "Professional" webiste built this?? and that is $5400 USDollars!!! (blinks repeatedly at the screen) it makes me feel so bad when "professional" sites or people recommend or build things for people that are not the best they can get for the money they want to spend, which is why I provide my insight and knowledge to anyone who wants it so they can avoid this kind of thing...

I agree, so, so much... it's all so overpriced, I reckon anyone could bring the industry to it's knees even without wholesale parts, do minute markup and boom.

4 grand pc and went with only the H60. lol.

That's not a sabertooth nor SLI 690s?

jonjonjon 1 Build 2 points 59 months ago

yea i went to the site he bought it from and its an msi board. the brand of gtx 690 they sell is gainward. the video cards in the pictures do look like the gainward 690.


TestBuilds 1 point 59 months ago

Don't all GTX 690s look the same?

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 59 months ago

yea i guess they do since they are all reference cards. either way those look like 690's.

brigittebeau 2 Builds 1 point 59 months ago

The cards looked all black in the picture, but I looked closer and yeah... those are 690s.

guys why are you so mad it's not as if you could actually take advantage of a better cpu than he already has there. 8 cores is enough to do pretty much anything. Yes the i7 is virtually 8 cores since it has hyper threading and that model has 4 cores.

IamApropos 3 Builds 1 point 59 months ago

Not made at the owner, more so at the company that sold this system. Its the fact that the place he purchased this system for charged nearly $1600+ markup on parts prices. I don't know if that is common in EU but its just a little sickening to see that kind of rip off. Heck CyberpowerPC and Alienware don't markup more than $300-$500 unless you have them overclock your system.

TestBuilds 1 point 59 months ago

Well... kind of... but I wouldn't call them virtual cores.

CheesyHotDogPuff 1 point 59 months ago

"Yeah. ...yeah." My same reaction.

Pretty sure thats not a 800d looks small

lt-smith 2 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

won't the quad-core processor be a bottleneck to the 2x 690s on multi-threaded games such as BF3? I mean you're mixing £2000 worth of graphic cards with a £220 cpu... Shouldn't you atleast be using a 3930k?

aragorn98 1 point 54 months ago

Really. SLI 690's and an H60. At least get a H80i more a H100i.

Invictus350 1 Build 0 points 59 months ago

Some more high end parts and you would have a nice build there :/ benchmarks?

Darren 0 points 59 months ago

some people have to much bloody money...+ there's a little overkill there for just that one little monitor... and that tower was a little overpriced.

Fastmaster7 0 points 59 months ago

It's a 650D, isn't it?
