This setup is extremely fast, looks great, was incredibly compatible, has more than enough cooling power, wattage, ram slots and room to grow!
Is that a vga cord I spy? Please tell me it is not.
I was trying it on an old display till mine gets in.
Oh okay, I was extremely worried for a second. Hope the build is working amazingly!
Do you really need that mobo and that optical drive? They are pretty expensive.. Any reasons? (That psu is a bit overkill too)
Yeah, thought I'd need more power for all the fans I have and I plan on expanding to 3-way sli. but as far as the blu ray, I'd rather have it than not. money really isn't an issue right now.
You could of got a better graphics card if money really isn't an issue right now. lol
like I said, first build and I'm not as adept with PC's as I used to be. So much has changed since I got back from Afghanistan . I appreciate all your input everyone!! I'll consult on here before building another!
Make sure you post in the forums when you do. People here go nuts over that kind of stuff.
He is fine. There is no set guideline on what your suposed to put in your rig to avoid the pro trolls.
Just so you know the GTX 660 doesn't support 3 way SLI. The GTX 660 Ti supports it but not the regular GTX 660.
mine does.. it's the over clock model.
your cable management is horrendous.
it's not done
You could have gotten a 7870 ghz or 7870 xt for basically the same amount of money. Great build though but I just think that it should be a crime to put a nvidia card in an AMD build. jk
what do you mean? what is a better choice?
Agreed. Dude, if only you had done more research and actually compared around...you could have got a much better build for your money. On the other hand, cable management is pretty decent for a semi-modular PSU. Try routing some of the loose bits of cable behind the motherboard tray; it will stop dust and mess forming in the bottom of your case.
Thanks, Yeah I'm a neat freak.
Oh and yes, I have a 1T Samsung 7200rpm HD, and a 250GB that has documents and such from my last computer.
well for one, it's my first build.. and as far as why I did stuff, look below.. but for the ram, I Photoshop and video edit a lot too.. not just game.
Hey Thanks about the info on the 3-way sli. looks like I'll have some more pcie slots open.
It would use a lot more power, be louder, probably hotter, than a single 7970 or two 7950s. The 7950s would be ~60-70% better than the 7970, but 7970 would be easier.
Adobe uses CUDA.
No. Adobe does not use OpenCL currently. There are plans to add it, but it has not been done yet.
