my suggestion.

or the gigabyte ds4 x38 board. but i have a grudge against asus for 2 bunked motherboards and non existant customer service.

the p5e supposed to be a great board though XD.
i have never had bad service from asus, at first i thought the person i was speaking to about my maximus formula was a retard, but i later realised she was right, asus and gygabit are the same company anyway, so youstill get teh same build quality for both boards, i personally love my maximus formula, i have built with other boards but never used them for personel use, i have doen soem over clokign on soem tho, and the maximus formula for me has been the best board ive ever used, im preaty sure gigabyte has a maximus formula equivelant board tho, i would go for that one if you disliek asus.

would this power supply have enough power for this, plus maybe a little for future overclocking/ futureproofing? Or should I crank it up a bit...

Newegg.com - SeaSonic M12 SS-700HM ATX12V / EPS12V 700W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CE, CB, TUV, FCC - Retail

I want a PSU that can handle crossfire cards, all the things listed, and several USB devices- and last 5 years.

the other i had in mind was Newegg.com - ETASIS ET850 ATX12V / EPS12V True 850W, Max 950W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, cUL, CB, TUV, MEMKO - Retail

JUst a little worried since I did a wattage calculator and using similar parts (didnt have CPU, or Video) it came to nearly a Kilowatt of power >< I sure hope its wrong.

I'm not sayin asus is bad or anything XD just saying i've had a coupole bad run-ins with them. I'd like the idea of the maximus. looks like a stellar board. I can only get kicked so many times before I go elsewhere though. XD

anyhow I only suggested ballistics because i've heard/read it overclocked better than the xms2. no other reason. 50$ after rebate seemed good too.

amperage > wattage PC silencer 750 would be wonderul if you want tons of watts. That seasonic looks good as well.

the 850 looks a bit overkill. but up to you

hmm will that one (the crossfire edition rather) Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad (Crossfire Edition) EPS12V 750W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CE, CB, RoHS - Retail be set to power 2 HD 3870's? Looks like its reading 1 60a rail...

but its beautiful.. and red.. black.. and silver.. and i might buy it just because its cheap and powerful and makes me happy on my geeky side... if only it had modular cables... i would marry it.

XD mod cables are definitely sweet. love mine. yeah it has 1 60A rail. as for enough juice to run 3870x2 I'd say so. BUT you may want a 2nd opinion. I don't knwo for sure since I wont follow ati cards anymore. So don't know what they take to run. Id imatine it could SLI a couple GT's no problem if it was crossfire edition. if thats any comparrison. dunno.

and yeah it looks pretty cool XD figured youd like that. XD


btw your sig vanished ;p

I likes overkill- it means when it starts to degrade after years of abuse- i can still play what I have perfectly fine.

and honestly am I even going to notice a difference if my ram is 1066 or slightly higher?

Personally I have no quaffs with any company right now, I've had 1 MSI and 1 ASUS motherboard before, both worked fine in there lifetimes, Quantum Fireball HDD (known to burn out and catch fire) Western Digital HDD that lasted major abuse for 7 years....being my first HDD that was all mine... (lots o'porn and virus later lol man.. to be young again)

The only thing I really don't like are some cases... HP and GATEWAY.... and for cases I've got some nice sheets of acrylic I think Iam going to fashion into my own case.... 2- 2x2ft sheets should be plenty lol

Oh and btw I calculated what it would take to make it DDR3 rams/(4GB) compared to 800s and its roughly 500 dollars more lol. So not worth it right now... rather spend 500 more bucks and get 2 more vid cards and Quadfire myself some 3870's LOL

or- since they are coming.. but when??? the HD3870x2(3890) or whatever they will be called....

anyone know when these are supposed to hit? Iam nearly certain I have my build now... I have been flip-flopping with Intel and AMD for a while.. its been a really tough choice really.. despite benchmarks and all that googley, the only thing going to break it is after I buy everything else- if AMD has come back to take the crown from Intel by force- then I'll have to find another motherboard.

Decided: Against Nvidia. why you might ask... it's fairly simple.. without overclocking the HD 3870 beats most Nvidia stuff- expecially in price. and I will NOT OC the Video. (Personal choice) another reason being I've had my Radeon 9000 for .. 7 years I think now.. and its only recently been screwing up on Higher paced games, 7 years.. thats quite dependable, before It I blew some Nvidia card, and before it I had a good ol Rage 128 and Diamond Stealth card lol.

Soooo Sli OUT Cross/Quadfire IN - not that I plan to start with 2 video cards.. it would defeat my learning experiance. (Iam going from what I have now- a "POS" no one would pay 300 bucks for- to something almost state-of-the-art - I need to learn what it feels like "normally" before getting 4GB Ram, 2-4 Video cards and all that. 1 Cpu (Normal clock) 2GB ram (Vista) 2 HDD (sata) 1 video card (Very "god like" compared to what I have now.) Then if games are laggy or choppy or not to my liking- pop another video in. or more ram...

and FYI if you disagree look at hard facts on these 2 the powercolor is the one I plan to get- unless the duals come out before then. the 8800GTS (G92) was reccomended to me.

GPU GeForce 8800GTS (G92) / Radeon HD 3870
Core clock 675MHz / 800MHz

Stream Processors 128 / 320
Memory Clock 1940MHz / 2400MHz
Memory Size 512MB / 512MB
Memory Interface 256-bit / 256-bit
Memory Type GDDR3 / GDDR4


-------------------------------------------------------------------
theres quite a bit of difference in core clock, memory clock and stream proccessors.... sure 150Mhz prolly wont be noticed, but 500ish memory clock will.
