    Personally I have trouble using more than 300GB of my hard drive.

    I don't really get why people insist on having massive hard drives. I mean, can't you delete something every now and then?

    Corporate lawyers make a fortune. I know what I'm aiming for later in life (if my acting falls through ;) ).

    You would just have to make sure you don't care if what you're trying to argue in court is actually legitimate.

    Which is why I couldn't stand being a corporate lawyer.

    Except my motherboard is also cheaper. You could fit in a SSD.


    Good point, doesn't PCPartPicker account for all that now?

    Not that I'm aware.

    For builds that are meant for friends, I go ahead and take the 15 minutes to calculate it myself (where shipping is assumed to be $10, unless free, and taxes 12%).

    You know, it would be nice if the OP could get his parts shipped to him, and pay the taxes on it.

    Meh, it would've been too messy. Plus I didn't have any zip ties or anything to tie the cables back. I found a twisty tie on a bag of bread for one thing of cables, and I used a rubber band for the ones under the hard drives.
    I didn't see the point in making it messy behind the motherboard. It would've been really hard to fit them anyway.
    And yeah, it's a Phantom 410. Specs in signature.

    Yeah. It's pretty hard to fit all the cables you don't need behind the motherboard tray, but it looks pretty awesome when you do.

    Pretty good :P

    NZXT Phantom, right?

    You should have tried to see if you could get all the excess cables behind the motherboard tray.

    The 7770 doesn't get "killed" by the 6850. They are still pretty much neck and neck, with the 7770 outperforming the 6850 in DX11 titles.

    The 920 rig I have downstairs really doesn't overclock well. The 920 has a locked multiplier, so you really can't do much for overclocking asides from adjusting the BCLK, which makes a lot of stuff on the board unstable.

    When you look at the store page for any motherboard, make sure the "socket type" says "LGA 1336". If the number is any different, it will not work.

    (and i have never heard of x58 or x56 in my life. Are you talking about x64/64-bit and x86/32-bit?)

    First gen enthusiast i7 chipset :P

    The i7-920 is still plenty powerful, but you're looking at about $160 minimum on Newegg to get a new motherboard. Might be better to just go Sandy/Ivy and get more performance for the extra $150.

    There are a lot of changes that need to be made on that computer. I can't really list them right now though, as I'm short of time.

    We get customers coming in who were actually tricked by these people every once in a while. They seem so amazed that someone would actually try to steal their personal information.

    posted a message on 7850 vs 7870
    Yeah, I'd say the 7870 is a worthy upgrade.

    Personally I'm debating between the 7870 and the 7950. With the 7870 I can get a better cooler for cheaper with the MSI R7870 HAWK, but I also want to get a higher performing card. I'm probably just going to wait until I actually order before deciding, although the MSI R7870 would look a lot cooler in my case than any decent 7950 out there.

    From what I recall, the 560 would only really be good up to the high preset at 1080p. Anything more than high and you'll probably want something beefier.

    That is really stretching my budget, But if it will play Black ops 2, MW3, Battlefield, Skyrim, Minecraft, World Of Tanks, Battlefeild Play 4 free, ets. Better the the rest, Considerably, Then i may have to grab it, Although, from whaty i read, the Gtx 560 should be able to get at least 40 FPS on Skyrim, Maxed, on 1080p. (http://www.tomshardw...ng,3273-11.html) Although i do not know how trust worthy this site is...

    The 7850 should get a solid 60, no problem. It should also be good for BF3 on ultra if you don't use AA.

    It's worse, but I wouldn't get the GTX 560 either. Go for a Radeon 7850 if you can stretch $10-$20, or drop down to a 7770/6850.

    There aren't really any good Nvidia cards for the price at the moment.
