hmmm looks like i might not even be able to run these 4 sticks at 2667?
thank's ended up not getting it just because i wasn't sure if it would work since it wasn't on the list, probably isn't worth the risk
yea, wasn't on my motherboards list though, so i went with the more expensive corsair vengence 8 x 4
You should name it the terminator. Seriously reminds me of that.
Edit: LOL someone already said that. Name Confirmed.
Get the 970.
hate to break it to you, but if you're putting the money down on a 980ti, you want to put the money down on a nice monitor. Cause it will be wasted on a cheap 1080p monitor.
What I found was that yes it is possible. You just adjust the resolution separately on each monitor through the windows settings...
answered my own question.
I would never in my life put that PSU in this rig. Like ever. In fact it is insufficient for whatever you want to do with this build. Try something like this...
no the bios does not.
it's actually GA-Z97M-DS3H
go there. Download the right driver for the part number I provided. restart computer after your done. Test the performance. If it's still not ok fixed we can try other solutions. Also could you give me an indication of what kind of lag spikes? Like FPS? Maybe run FRAPS (software) and see when this happens?
what is the part number of your mobo? Should have nothing to do with the hard drive.
honestly the best one is the one that GAROLDonPC linked you. For the price point it is probably the most efficient and quiet. Use that (his list is good as well)
Another common misconception about water cooling is that it is quiet. Unfortunately it is only as quiet as the fans you have installed on your radiator. There are many great quiet air coolers out there, I will take a look and get back to you.
yes. Please install AMD Catalyst software. It will do all updates for you.
I know man -.-...
Since you don't understand what I'm saying I will make it more clear:
a SINGLE 120 MM FAN / A Single 120 MM Radiator is probably not going to get you much better temps than a good air cooler. And then you run the risk of leaks. IMO go with a real inline water cooler or go air.
which do nothing for cooling the cpu... I'm talking about that 120mm rad / fan water cooling setup. btw your GPU is missing in the newer updated version :P.
a single 120mm fan / rad isn't really anything worth buying, you can probably get the same results on air. Seems like a decent price though..
Do you have the latest up to date drivers installed?
are you sure the monitor works?
u need the receiver if you want a wireless controller. If you go wired (connect to the PC USB) you don't need anything you just plug it in.
970's with this kind of budget is disappointing but the build looks nice so +1 for everything else.
Here you go, this will blow all the games away right now for a lot less than 1600. Enjoy.

I would recommend getting an original xbox 360. They are cheap right now and work with every game pretty much.
as far as I know, DVI-D and DVI-I are compatible. So just get any DVI cord.
sure it would. But if you're just gaming. This is going to get you ALOT more performance..
Kept the core of the build cause it was solid.
the metal bracket they speak of is the part that holds the VGA ports / HDMI / Display Ports / DVI ports together (the back of the card). Installing the graphics card is probably the easy part of any build. you can't really screw it up.
Metal bracket has nothing to do with the motherboard but yes most cards do come with this "metal bracket"
what types of games do you play? That monitor is taking up a lot of your budget.
Just realized you don't have a power supply.. Here this is a better build if a tad over your budget then what you have...
:( gtx 760 :(
while i have never worn one, many people wear a static wristband of sorts that negates static, you can find one on amazon for cheap... You don't need gloves. I don't think you will need anything else. Unfortunate you can't get the 980 ti though :(
yea the gigabyte seems to be pretty nice, I'll probably go for that on black friday.
this shouldn't be too bad, although you may want to just spend a few more dollars on the PSU...
The only way to overclock the CPU is for it to be a "K" series chip with a "Z" series motherboard. We aren't overclocking the motherboard, just the CPU.
Try this but change your SSD as Horusrogue said. For what you are doing, an I7 upgrade will not give you enough performance per dollar spent, I used the savings to buy you the best graphics card on the market.
Well generally the use of a "z" series board allows you to overclock (this is the main feature). A "K" series chip is unlocked meaning it can be overlocked. Non K series chips cannot be overclocked. Another main feature being SLI for the "z" series. Although I wouldn't really recommend the SLI route for most people.
k chip is like 10 dollars more....
z87 board with no k chip? Any reason for this?
Hope you don't mind but this just gave me a whole lot of ideas to upgrade my green build... Awesome job!!
has it worked? yea it does its job just fine. http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9566
explains modular non modular and semi modular
naw it's not.
I would recommend this one. I have it, it's awesome.
yea it's good, only thing I would change is change your PSU to gold and then with that savings get a fully modular one, I regretted not buying one a lot.
looks good, i7 not needed for gaming tho.
this is really cool if it's legit!
not going to get you 10 fps increase. Maybe 5. if you don't have the money you can't do it anyways.
