At the very least, I wouldn't buy the "superclocked" version.

Yup, that an AM3 board is useless and overpriced.

alright, I've gotten what I need

I've really been hung on an i7 build for quite some time now and only really considered AMD in the past few weeks,

regarding the GTX 275 i must agree, 4890 is where I'm going no matter which build

I've heard that in xfire at 1900*1200 they scale really good, above 90%

I think I'll bite the bullet and buy the i7 and my sub woofer will just have to wait....

I've got too many expensive interests

*sighs*

well now that I'm back on that i7 track, any comments on my build? (I've updated the GTX 275 tp a HD 4890

Yeah crossfire is known to scale better than sli at the uppper end.


About your build. I'm not a huge fan of the Cosmos myself, but thats due to looks. I can't comment on how good it is. there are a lot of good new cases that have just come out that you might want to check out also. The storm sniper, storm scout, panzer box, etc.

I would get a 3rd party cooler, as i didn't see you list one. You can get an lga1336 bracket for the core contact freezer, That should do you fine.

Other than that I think its solid.

You can swap out the combo deal I put in there for the Biostar that salty suggested, it's a good board too.

Also, I put the Seagate 640gb in there because it's 10 bucks cheaper for the same performance.

I don't like the EVGA. I don't trust the quality of their mobos. Not only that but you are only saving $25 when the difference can be more than made up with a mobo change.

Newegg.com - ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards


The P6T is more than $25 cheaper. And ASUS is known for reliability.


Newegg.com - MSI X58 Pro LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

You could also get the msi x58 platinum.
