Default Re: New pc im working on

This Ram is cheaper and better:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI

is there any particular reason you want the Rampage Formula III motherboard? if you arent 100% set in stone getting that board, id recceoemend these for you to consider:

Newegg.com - ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Newegg.com - ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

you dont need a 2 gig 5870, that extra gig of ram doesnt improve game play at all, id reccoemend anyone of these:

Newegg.com - MSI R5870 Lightning II Radeon HD 5870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Newegg.com - XFX HD-587X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5870 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100281VX-2SR Radeon HD 5870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

that power supply is crap, get this one:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-750HX 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

the V8 isnt very good for the money

this are better in order from most expesnive to least

Newegg.com - Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Newegg.com - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CAFA70 120mm Dual-Fan CPU Cooler

Those G.Skill are 2T as opposed to the Dominators prolly being 1T and can prolly do the same timings whilst overclocked.

Im with Sean on the motherboard. If your not an overclocking enthusiast i wouldnt suggest a top end board like the Rampage. A cheaper Asus or eVGA would suffice for less. While were in that area a 950 probably isnt to wise on the performance per dollar ratio either. Id suggest a 930 instead and read up on a few guides floating around and OC it a tad.

As was said, the V8 isnt very good and i wouldnt recommend putting it on an i7. I have it on a 940BE @ 3.6ghz and it tops out around 65c while folding. I wouldnt trust to put it on my i5 at all.
A better option would be something he put up there ^ or a Meglahems or TRUE120. Or possibly the Corsair H70.

To finish off, Black Ops would probably run on a medicore dual core system with a decent GPU. They have rehashed the same engine on each CoD for a LONG time now. My laptop plays MW2 maxed easily.

i would stick with the HAF 932, its an awesome case with great features, dont skimp on a case, if you get one you love you wont have to buy a new case for a LONG time.

also, you have a 5870 linked as your motherboard?

I seriously would not get the Mirror Edition (Lycosa) unless you wanna clean up smudge marks constantly. I just cleaned mine and it took about 30 minutes just to get gunk off and i wash my hands regularly before i get on my pc. Its a good keyboard, but i would get the regular Lycosa. Same thing, rubberized keys.

I'll second that motion, I passed on the mirror one for that same reason, I love the rubber keys. Don't regret going with this one for a second.
