Alright, thank you for your reply.
Alright, I'll give that a try, thanks.
Sorry for the long reply time. I got it at Canada Computers; which is where I got all of it, although they had to order it because they had none in stock. You can get it only from here you just have to use the drop down option and select "Extended" for $39.99
Made sure to keep the receipt. I'm hoping it turns out well also :P
I tried taking out the cards individually, the secondary card is indeed not functioning, even the fans were not moving when I manually set the speed, guess I'll have to take it back. Thanks for the suggestion.
I got it working, it wasn't anything to do with the hardware. It's AMDs crappy driver software that messes up all the time.
I just rolled back from 13.12 to 13.9 and the game started up, but when I alt+tabbed out everything was displaced and my background was black.
It says the Graphic drivers have failed to recover and needed to be shut down, and the code was something like 0x00000ff16.
That worked perfectly the first time I tried it and then everything crashed when I tried to re-enable Xfire so now it doesn't work at all.
Thank you for giving me that glimmer of hope though.
Yes, I have rolled it back to the stable version of 13.12
I was going to SLI 2 770s but AMD is cheaper and runs most of the games I play better, so I went with it. I use Razer Surround with the headset, so technically it is Surround Sound. It was a great learning experience.
I'm not sure what you mean by take it, but if you mean copy, then sure. I don't see any harm in it as long as the new case has enough space. Easily, playing BF4 on Ultra 1080p at 100 fps.
I went with it because it was a little bit cheaper and I know Sapphire have really high quality products. I love this case, my old computer can fit inside it as well...
Nothing was wrong with the RAM, I was just too stupid to read the package at the store and at home. I only purchased 8 GB. Face palm
The Chimaera isn't available on this sites list, and they were out of Acrtosas so I grabbed a death stalker and didn't feel the need to change it.
It's doing really good, haven't had any problems with it, and it was easy to setup.
It's really good, getting 100-180 fps in BF3 on Ultra 1080p.
Thank you very much.
I'm proud of it.
alright, will do. Thanks.
So, does anyone know why it only shows half the RAM then?
I'm not entirely sure really.
Yes they are. The outside stick is no problem at all, the inside just has to go in on a weird angle, but it does fit.
Alright, thanks for the tip, will do.
So I ran into a bit of trouble with hooking up the front panel buttons and such, does anyone know where they go on the motherboard?
Thanks, I'm building it right now.
Yes, all the stuff in my build.
I'm getting all this stuff tomorrow, so I don't think that is an option. But thanks for the tip.
It is listed as about $65 with the company I am buying from. I want to avoid Water-cooling as this is my first build, and I have no idea how to set it up. I might look into an SSD depending on what they have in the store. Thank you very much for your feedback.
If you're only waiting a month for the rest may as well get it now and save a couple bucks. Nothing big will happen in a month.
Well with $6000 it should.
I came up with this. The case and peripherals all come down to your preference so I just went with mine. If you wanted to save some money to be put elsewhere you could swap out the Titans for some R9 290x' when they are released.
The stock cooler generally isn't enough, but water cooling is just too far. I'd look into Noctua or NZXT air coolers, they are both wonderful companies. 80+ is what Gold rated is, that's the power efficiency of the PSU. What I was saying is that you don't need that much wattage. In the top right of the list above the "Buy" buttons, the estimated wattage is there, generally a 100w over the estimation is plenty.
Okay, thanks mate.
Even then, and 850w is plenty, I'm crossfiring 2 R9 280xs and thats all ti will need with a lot of extra wattage.
What's with the 1250w PSU? The estimation is 482w, so a 650 would be plenty.
The leak from newegg had it priced about 799 if I remember correctly.
God damn I always forget this. I will be using it primarily for gaming with a lot of photo/video/music editting.
You don't really need the SSD
Water cooling is also unnecessary unless you are overclocking or live in the desert.
Bring the PSU down to a 500w or 550w unless you are planning on SLI.
And if you don't need such a big monitor, this is a wonderful monitor
alright, thank you good sir.
Alright, thanks guys, made the changes.
I think 900w PSU for this is complete overkill, the estimated wattage is 522w, so I'd go with a 650 or 700, but 900 is just a waste of money where it could be spent in other places.
Alright thanks, I had some people doubting me, and saying I was wrong about how easy it was, but then I thought SLI might complicate some stuff.
Yeah, I always forget to mension the purpose, it's going to be used primarily for gaming, but with a lot of 3D modelling and photo/video stuff. And I heard haswell heats up into really high temperatures for some reason.
Needs more fans, definitely more fans...
$120 for a monitor and keyboard isn't going to get you much. a decent gaming monitor is usually around $100-$180. The Hanns-G HL203DPB Black 20" 5ms Widescreen LED is a good, cheap monitor.(Sorry for no link.Google should help with that.) And I would suggest the Razer Arctosa as it is a good gaming keyboard for a fairly cheap price. So if you can go $30 over it should be a good combo.
Should be, it's mostly relevant when you are going to have a multiple monitor setup.
Not everything is going to be purchased from Amazon, so that isn't a great option, but thanks for the suggestion.
That is a wonderful thing, Do I have to be 18?
