  1. Hello everyone It's been a long time since I been around. I am getting my new rig Thurs and I want some of your guys guess on what kind of pitscore you think I will get with it and Thurs we will see who is the closest. This will be my very first custom computer so what do you guys think about the setup?? Any thoughts or suggestions would be gladly appreciated

    Rig specs are as follows..


    Case..Antec D-85

    Motherboard..Gigabyte Z77-UD5

    Processor..Intel I7 3770K quad core overclocked to 4.5GHz

    Heatsink..Scythe Ninja 3

    Ram..16GB's of High Speed Kingston HyperX 12800 @ 1600MHz

    Graphics cards..Two EVGA 670 GTX FTW edition in SLI with a 10% overclock

    Operating system..Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

    SSD..120 GB Kingston HyperX 3K

    Hard drive..2TB Seagate Barracuda

    Disk Drive..Lite-on 24X dual layered multi-DVD burner

    Sound card..Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro Series

  2. I personally have used G.Skill DDR2 and had absolutely no issues with it. In my opinion it is great stuff.


    I think the PSU may possibly be trouble as there are two 12V rails, but each is only good for 19 amps. I would suggest that a better way to go is a PSU with a single 12V rail of at least 45 amps. It will be more expensive, but could save a lot of headache in the end.


    The vid card should be plenty powerful for just about anything.


    Thanks for you input,,, I will try the powersupply and if it fails then I will concede defeat lol

  3. Hey guys it's been along time since I posted. I just tonight bought these 3 things from newegg and I wanted your guys opinion on them and if they are good products














    The Gskill memory I bought 4gigs of ram and I was wondering with the powersupply I got to go with the vid card it states on the specs that it needs a 12v with a rating of 26A,, I'm hoping this power supply will work with it being that I searched high and low for that at newegg and could not find a power supply fitting that description.

  4. I'm thinking about getting a good raid card to put in this system, I just need someones advise on which raid card I need, like do I need a sata, Ide card or what, I know my drive is a sata drive, not pci express, and also do I have to get a matching harddrive or what? If one of you guys could give me a link from newegg on a very good card that will work for my system would be much appreciated :)
