New Build Blueprint

  1. #11


    Corsair is a big name on Newegg. I owned them before and loved them.

    I don't think I've seen your post before unless I overlooked it in one of the threads.

    Corsair is a big name everywhere. The only downside to their great products is that you have to pay a 25% premium just for the brand name. You can pretty much get the same quality from G.Skill for 3/4 of the price. But with things like power supplies, Corsair is definitely the way to go.

    And do you mean my 'New Build' thread? Yeah, I put it over on SF. There's where I started anyway and I figured I'd get more replies over there. I was right apparently. It has over 10 pages...

    Yea psu in corsair. For ram I've had a mix of things from ocz to mushkin to g.skill. I'm sticking to g.skill for now.

    Nah Jaidyn I mean the actual computer.

    I like the list that you have planned but if you can afford it, the Ideas from Jaidyn reference Processor and RAM are good, as for specific brand names you should go with what you feel is right you will notice for yourself if some parts are maybe not as good as they could be also everyone has different tastes. AMD make good processors and to say they are slower than their Intel counterparts is not always accurate and even when it is I would disagree that it is a really noticeable difference

    Thank you. I love my AMD chips, and to say that one is better than the other is hardly noticed. There are MANY bottle necks that can effect the computer. Be it this GPU, RAM, or even the hard drive. As hidden as it is, even heat is a silent killer.

    Pooch, I also love AMD because of this: no to little advertising; Intel on the other hand does a lot of it.

    The AMD Zambezi is my dream, but too expensive for me now

    I'm revising the build. I'm changing a few things up.

    I'm also putting my trip off. My friend forced me through choice words to get things together before I fly to him. (Very nice guy, details are better in another spot)

    At the end of the day, I just say to myself its just another dollar.

    Looks good. I'd still go with Zambezi though and would definitely go with 8GB. What do you plan to do on this computer? Not many apps or programs need more than 4GB of RAM.

    I have been looking at this one 34-GPX-PF9000I and I would probably add the happauge.
