Description

I use the rig for WoW mostly as well as some bitcoin mining, minecraft and swtor. The case is different than pictured on newegg but i actually like this side panel much more than the pictured one. I havent overclocked anything yet and i am still waiting on my monitor to come in. Thanks to all of those who helped with picking parts and such, well enough talking, time for the pc ****...

16gigs just for gaming? why not saving that money for an 840 pro ssd or a 7950?

I know the 840 pro is a big step up from the 840, so yes, he could have cut down a notch on the memory for it. On the other hand, that 7870 should be able to overclock beautifully and reach 7950 clocks, maybe higher if it is a good card, and if OP knows his/her stuff.

The 7950 has 1792 stream processors. The 7870 has 1280 stream processors. Even with that awesome cooler, I doubt it will be able to catch up.

I wouldn't call pro a big step. They have the same read times, but the pro does have faster write times if your doing a lot of that. And mlc memory if your really planning to do 10,000+ rewrites.

not just for gaming and how much performance is actually gained from a 840 pro over a 840?

Truly wonderful build, simple but nice. Hope you enjoy it!

P.S i'm jealous of those LEDS and your convenient desk location!

Thanks and so far i am loving it! and the case came with all the LEDS, got a hell of a deal on the case for $40, especially because that sidepanel was much better than the one pictured on their website and the desk and closets were built about a year ago.

Why 840 over 830 or 840 Pro?

830 is discontinued and 840 is faster. But people are more leary about getting 840 tlc memory vs 830 mlc (more time tested reliability).

A bit overkill considering what you use it for but you won't have to upgrade for quite some time so that's a plus!

Hey. Nice build and I hope you enjoy it. But I do have a question you may be able to answer since we have the same mobo and cpu. I just got finished with my first build about a week ago, but sadly had to RMA my 7970. Because of this I am running off Intel's HD 4000 graphics. When I had my 7070 installed I never got this problem till after I took it out and ran off the on board graphics. My screen flickers (similar to blinking your eyes really fast), is this an issue you may have seen? Sorry, just trying to rule out the possibilities.

havent seen that at all, been running off of my 7870 the whole time except for 10min while i was installing the driver so havent dealt with the intergrated graphics much, and on a side note are you overclocking at all? if so, to what and what cooler are you using? and anyone else have suggestions on what i can safely overclock to with my build?<<noob

Yeah. The only reason I'm on integrated is cause I'm waiting on my 7970 to make it back. I haven't overclocked yet because i haven't had a reason to but I did purchase the Cooler Master Evo 212 for the future because I eventually will overclock. Here is my build- http://pcpartpicker.com/p/z5Dw
