    AMD won't cut prices again. Save a few bucks so you can get the GTX670

    Why do you even consider a $400 GPU? Do you need it?

    OCZ 120GB SSD
    EVGA 670 GTX SuperClocked
    Corsair 850W HX Modular PSU
    Corsair 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz Jet Black
    Asus P8Z77-V SOcket 1155 (friend showed me this, thoughts?)
    Intel i7 3770k Ivy Bridge 3.5Ghz
    LG Bluray Player/Burner
    Coolermaster HAF X Case

    Why would you want to watch your character get shot by a corrupt US General when you can watch him get eviscerated by an eight-foot alien in purple body armour?

    I keep forgetting that I'm living in the past with just one display for gaming.

    You're spending too much. I'm assuming you're running at 1080 @ 60hz, why do you want a 670? If you're not planning on SLI you're waisting your money on anything above a ~600w PSU. You're waisting your money on 16gb of ram unless you're pushing huge amounts of polies or raw video. Is there a reason you need the hyperthreading of the 3770k?


    fuck that jcap guy too

    I do appreciate you trying to look for alternatives, but the main purpose is to built a powerful machine that woken become old and dated in a short time. I'd rather spend a bit more and make it worth while.

    I was originally going for 680 but in scaling back. In a short answer, yes I would like ability to SLI in future.

    Any issues with compatability with the parts? Going to order later today probably

    Ordered - Had to also buy a 2TB HDD and Windows 7 copy which didnt help the cost =\

    I've been toying around with the idea of getting a server for upcoming projects, to stop the hassle of having to personally give out files and builds of projects.

    I'd like to know, does anyone have any experience working with a server/SVN? What kind of computer components should I be getting/creating for this kind of job, and what kind of settings should the computer have once I get it?
