1150 is the way to go for now, but if you can get very cheap 1155 parts that will be great, because performance of haswell vs ivybridge is not that much to justify the high price for haswell processors.
Better let them warm to room temperature before turning on, there might be some moisture condensation which might cause damage to the electronics if the circuit board is cold, once the air starts flowing inside.
Thanks OP, bought one more to add crossfire to my HD7850. BTW the fan is kind of very loud if you don't have enough flow to move the air in your case, I had to throw a 140mm Noctua fan to move the air, didn't have this problem with my sapphire HD7790 before.
it's okay, I'm running at 1866MHz on my gskill and I'm using only a i3 3240 on p8p67, as long as you use a motherboard can overclock cpu you should be able to control the memory speed, that means you have to use z87 on 4770k.
the only reason you need a better video card for video is using madVR for better reproduction of color, other than that a HD5450 is definitely okay, unless you want to do a 4k video playback then that's a different story.
Wow, it's alread so many years since LGA775 was introduced. Now Intel switched to new socket every two years, they learned from the longetivity of LGA775 and are pushing people to dump the old rig and upgrade new ones, not just buying processors only.
the only parts will draw a lot of power are GTX 760s, they will be over 300W, that leaves about 400W for other components, there is no way those will pull that much power from the PSU, you will be definitely okay using your 750W PSU.
most of the new coins use scrypt, otherwise they will be flooded by ASICs, there are new coins coming out everyday and they can be compared with litecoin or bitcoin for profitability at coinchoose.com, those using sha256 are at the bottom even lower than bitcoin already.
you can lower the core frequency to see if it draw too much power from PSU, put the core frequency at 600MHz and see if it crashes, that will only draw about 2/3 of the power, roughtly 100w, even if you have a 350W PSU it should be running okay. If it continues with crash, time for RMA I would say.
I was able to grab a refurbished hd7850 (powercolor 2GB single fan design) from ebay sold by newegg on Tuesday evening, that single hour all forty card were sold, of coure the card is much cheaper but that's crazy speed, $115 per card is really hard to get these days.
do a new windows installation to rule out any driver problem first, you might have some software/driver causing problem in the system, because it only happens recently so you have to rule out the software problem first, it's very hard to say it's the video card from your description.
Try using another hard drive and do a fresh install, I have same problem with my p8p67 motherboard when I had the marvell IDE enabled, the driver is causing about two or three mintues of delay in the reboot, if your fresh install doesn't take that long to boot to desktop, you can rule out the...
Always use hdtune pro to do a full disk scan when you buy a hard drive for backup purpose, there might be bad sectors you won't know unless you do a complete format, but that's very slow and no one would have the patience to run that.
NAS has lower power usage over an old PC, and PC is huge if you put more HDDs in side, so unless you put into your basement, a lot of people would go with a small NAS box, I'm using 2.5 hdd in my ds411slim, the performance is not that good but it's tiny and low noise, I have it next to my...
