For 3000, I'm not sure you really did it here. Seems like a lot of wasted money on things you wanted just to have. And not really the best choices on RAM, SSD, or the headset (from what others are saying). Really, you could have gotten AT LEAST SLI 670s and an awesome build for that price.

Looks like a really good build. Nice cable management too!

I think you might have overdone the MB a little bit, but it's a nice build overall.

The cable management isn't horrible, but it could use some improvement for better airflow (don't know if you are planning on OCing). Other than the HDD and PSU, the only other thing I would say is that it might have been better to go with the Ivy Bridge, but it's not really a must-do.

Maybe, but what could he possibly have had before that required 1100W when this was an upgrade?

WAY overkill. But it is a nice build other than that. Good choices for all the products.

Very nice cable management. That case is spotless. I might have gone with a better graphics card for a build like this though. EDIT: After seeing that last picture, the 27" monitor can't come soon enough! :p

Yeah, for a build like this I would expect to see at least 7200 rpm HDDs. And I think you might have overdone it on the PSU, but I like the build other than that. The cable management is good too.

I've heard that the only thing wrong with the stock ones is that they're louder than aftermarket ones. But that's not really a huge issue for most people.

Might want to have gone with an Ivy Bridge CPU, a cheaper motherboard, less power, and a better GPU. You could probably do that for the same price, or even less.

How did you manage to spend 240 on a 570 when you could get a 7870 that would outperform it for the same price?

Also, 24GB of RAM seems like a little overkill, but since you didn't really specify exactly what you're using it for it may not be.

You could sell it, return the SSD, and buy one with more space. Or even just a 7200 rpm HDD with like 1TB.

Why 16GB of RAM and why not an Ivy Bridge CPU? And for 1700 I would assume you could get a better GPU.

Yeah I saw that, good thing they added that feature when they did! But I think I might be getting the Storm Enforcer case anyway so it's not a big deal.

And even if the 912 case doesn't have front headers, I could always just use the ports on the back.

I was thinking about that one too, just not sure if it's worth the extra money if the 7850 is already a great card.

Cool build, well done! Cable management is decent and the parts look really nice.

One question: How is that 7850 performing? What games do you play with it? I'm considering buying that card for my build as well.

Well I don't really do anything that requires good sound and I'm almost up to my max budget, so I'm probably not going to get a sound card. Thanks for the advice though. :)

16GB of slow, and 376GB of SSD storage. Why...

Comment reply on FlareCat's Completed Build: Powerhouse

It makes me cringe when I see people use 16GB of RAM.

Also, I think that's the same case the Storm Troopers used.

And for 1400 you couldn't get the latest line of a GPU, whether it be 6XX or 7XXX?

Nice build, but the SSD is going to be tight with anything more than the OS. For that price I'm surprised you didn't just go with an M4.

Other than that nice build.

Comment reply on a1sealc4's Completed Build: Price/Performance

I was wondering the same thing. For price performance 128 would certainly do if it's just for the OS and things like that. You could probably get away with even 64GB, and save a good amount of money.

When I saw the 9 Hard Drives all packed in there I actually laughed out loud. What an insane amount of storage, but a nice build overall.

Ok makes sense. But 16GB of memeory is completely unnecessary, especially if you're using it for gaming.

Why did you only get one stick of RAM? 2x4 would have been better I think.

Vista? On a 2000 dollar computer?

And why would you get a 5400rpm HDD to pair with your 512GB SSD? A 400 dollar SSD I might add.

The case is awesome though, but for 230 dollars you can get a really nice graphics card and a 40 dollar case.

Only thing I would say is that you way overdid it with the PSU. And maybe an Ivy Bridge would have been good but there's nothing wrong with the 2500K

Well I'm definitely getting the SSD, but as a second HDD I'm not sure which to get. Even the highest rated ones seem to have a lot of failures. But if you say your C.B. works well I could get that.

No problem. :) If you have an extra 4000 laying around I'd be happy to take it off your hands for you. I've got a build on hold until Christmas vacation.

Other than the 5900RPM (what?) HDD, looks like an awesome build. I really like the case, although I could never get myself to drop 170 dollars for a case. :p

I'm not completely sure, but that GPU might be bottlenecked by your CPU a little bit. The MOBO could probably be better, and maybe 2x2 or 2x4 RAM would be good to take advantage of Dual Channel. For that GPU, 350W might not be enough power. Overall I don't think it's too bad, especially for 770 bucks.
