ya couldn't wait, starting a new job that needed a pc to work from also so i had to get one like yesterday. sorry i don't think you were looking at the proper case, i'm getting a coolermaster case it had 5 fans, and the pws is 700 typo! let's hope for jan 1st 2012
Good call sir on the 560 ti. Researched it a bit and am very glad that you brought that up, thank you! the 560 is crap i had only researched that one previously. its comparable (the ti) to the ati 6950hd but far surpasses when OC'd. also good call on the processor, i didn't realize how much more i was paying for the i7 (been doing sooooo much research on vid card didn't pay close enough attention there) that savings enabled me to get the 560ti in the first place, so again thanks
560 ti jumped up about 30 fps from the 460 just at base
As far as fans there's two in front one on top one on side and one on back, should be ok imo.
hi hobo, i actually can't answer that question about the resolution lol. right now i'm on a spare laptop as my pc is fried, i have a 19" non widescreen somewhat older LCD. it's a strange resolution but it's only going to be my monitor until I upgrade my TV (which just recently was smoking) back to an LCD. i haven't actually had the time to spec out the items individually but if it's only a matter of saving 100$ i don't really have the time for it currently :/ and i was planning on over clocking the cpu but i suppose thats a lot to save to drop down one, and it is also oc certified maybe i should do that? also planning on buying the nvid 460 evga superclocked, because the 550 is crap. and i've seen a lot of negative reviews on the 560 crapping out after 3 months. what do ya think now?
Hey guys, I'm purchasing a new computer and am looking at a few builds. I'm trying for around a grand and making the strongest gaming PC I can. Right now I'm looking on sites such as cyberpowerpc ibuypower and newegg. Those are the only three I really know of with any reputation. So I'm looking at a http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/Mega_Special_II/ with the nvidia evga superclocked 460 because everything I've read has praised this year and a half old now card. Let me know what you think of the build, if and where any changes I could make. Thanks!
