    Looking for opinions on CPU+MB+RAM upgrade

    Because it is older and newer is better ;). Mostly because it seems like there is a general agreement that the output quality of the 1150 is substantially better. I would consider a discrete card, but in my experience that is just one more thing that can go wrong. BTW, do you know if either...

    Looking for opinions on CPU+MB+RAM upgrade

    I am holding off on the PSU upgrade until I go SLI. Just no reason to upgrade it until then, and that isn't happening until the consumer Oculus Rift comes out (I have played on a friend's dev kit and it is amazing.) BTW, the PSU was bought in 2009. The old realtec 892 turned my off of the ASUS...

    Looking for opinions on CPU+MB+RAM upgrade

    The Z97 Sabertooth Mark 2 is $165. I think you are thinking of the Mark 1. I thought about jumping up to the Haswell-E 6 core, but the cost is out of my budget ($220 for the board + $390 for a 5820k that you have to OC a fair bit just to get close to the single threaded performance of a 4790k...

    Looking for opinions on CPU+MB+RAM upgrade

    I am currently on a Q6600 with a MB that requires frequent BIOS resets, so I am looking to upgrade. My plan is to get an i7 4790k + 8GB DDR3 CAS9 Ram + MB. The main issue is figuring out which MB to get. I really want to make sure I get a very reliable MB. This has made the ASUS Sabertooth a...

    help selecting sub $150 SLI compatible MB for 4790k

    I am looking for a MB to keep an i7 4790k suspended in my computer case. *My main concerns are stability, SLI compatibility, and sound quality. *I am looking to spend somewhere between $100-$150, as there seems to be plenty of options in this price range. *All other things being equal, I...

    AMD vs Nvidia multimonitor gaming?

    I am thinking about switching from red to green for my triple monitor rig. I would appreciate any input I can get from those that have used either or both for multi-monitor gaming. On my home forums, some have stated that they had problems with Nvidia Surround, but I know I often have to jump...

    Seriously, what does one do with this or does it just sit on a shelf?

    WTB 2x2GB (or more) DDR2 (preferably 1066 or better)

    Is there a typo in your part number? The few hits I am getting off that number don't match the description. Otherwise, it looks like a good deal. BTW, if this is your heatware http://www.heatware.com/eval.php?id=83406 , could you please link it to [H] so I will be able to leave feedback and...

    WTB 2x2GB (or more) DDR2 (preferably 1066 or better)

    Looking to drop some RAM into my system to get it through another year. I need two sticks that have at least 2GB each. I would prefer 1066 but would consider a good deal on some 800, if I can't find the former. BTW, listed on heatware as aviphysics.

    I Need help with a PC purchase.

    I would wait on the SSD. I would also not look at the vanilla 120GB 840. The 128GB 840 pro isn't that much more. Even better would be to wait until you have enough for either 250GB 840, 500GB 840, or 256 GB 840 pro. Another drive to keep your eye on is the M500 256GB and 512GB models. They just...

    [H] Challenge for you guys

    I came up with two builds near or below the $600 mark. I don't think either will match a PS4. With the i3 build, for an around $100 more you could get a 7870 or a GTX 660, but I think the i3 will be too week for the next gen console ports. A10 is also going to be too week. $600 build: i3 + 7770...
