Re: New System Build
yes, this has been mentioned a couple times now. thank you.
I was well aware of the power consumption and heat before my purchase as I've read and/or viewed multiple reviews/posts/etc.
I took a good hard look at both companies and their offerings. this card won this time, for me. I've always had Nvidia cards and every single one had issues. MX420 (RAM issue), 6600gt (died), 7900gt(RAM issue), 8800gt (RAM issue). my RMA of my 8800GT gave me this Radeon 5750 which is a refurb, but has held solid since I received it, zero issues. so, i'd like to go down the path of R9.
so, gfx card *check*, processor *check*
so, took a look at the Exteme6 - bit to much here in Canada. the Extreme4 seems to have a lot of bad reviews (newegg.ca). more 1's than 5's. the anniversary is still on the list.
the MSI Gaming 5 is also lookin' pretty nice too. decent reviews.
decisions decisions XD
the MSI was in stock last night on NCIX but now it's ***
bleh. shows the supplier wear house has stock though.
There's 8GB of F Skill ripjaws for 56 bucks so that should do the trick for RAM
There's a CM750M as well for just over 100 bucks.
