Why is this $995? They forget to update their prices?
Very nice. You probably would've been better off getting one very high end card then two 7850s, but if you didn't have the money at the time, they'll perform just fine.
Minecraft is a terrible benchmark. Your 7850 murders my 6770, lol
If you're going to be doing tasks that require 32GB of VRAM, you should've gone with an i7. Right?
I've just started planning my career as a salesman of Intel products.
Not sure if a single 2GB GTX 670 will be enough for three monitor gaming. It'll work just fine, I'm sure for some of the less demanding games, but you'll certainly have to lower the settings on some of them above that. The Radeon HD 7970 which comes with 3GB VRAM would be a much better choice for around the same price, but it's your decision. The motherboard also might be overkill, but I guess, again, it's your decision.
My friend can't run BF3 ultra 60+ FPS with his GTX 680. T_T
Most of the complaints on ASRock mobos I've heard is that they're flimsy. I don't know what you're doing with your motherboard if you're snapping it in half in daily usage, but you're certainly doing something wrong. As far as Seagate goes... I've had a seagate drive for years now, and it's running strong. Sure it's not the best option, but still good for the money.
Only 90 fps on Minecraft? I get like 120+ with a 6770.
I was just about to start complaining about people using 16GB RAM when... this.
Well no one cares about the 550 lol
True, but he was originally considering the GTX 570. The 570's memory bandwidth is very slightly higher than the 660 Ti's, and the other pros of the 660 Ti make up for this minor advantage of the 570. Right?
The only GeForce 500 series "Ti" card is (as far as I know) the GTX 560 Ti. There's no Ti version of the GTX 570 lol
For a bit more than the price of the GTX 570 you could get the GTX 660 Ti, which people have said is faster than the GTX 580.
You're 13 years old, and you need an i7 for programming? I mean, being 13 myself, I don't want to prejudge what you're going to do with it, but I don't think you'll be writing anything that utilizes hyper threading right now. But you'll be using it for video editing, which I guess sort of justifies the 16GB RAM. As I see others have told you, the Z77 motherboard was a mistake for a locked multiplier CPU. Also, you got the locked multiplier CPU because you read that the unlocked versions won't last as long. I'm not sure if this will help, but an aftermarket heat sink (I didn't see it in the parts list) should add some time to its life. I don't know how the lower temperatures will affect it's lifetime, but they certainly won't hurt it.
