    [Advice] New Build

    SB 'might' be having a recall of there MOTHERBOARDS. The cpu is fine but they're having problems with the sata 2 ports or something. Maybe hang out until april if possible? I was about to buy my SB pc but then i heard about this so now holding out until Bulldozer and hopefully SB mobo's will be fixed around that same time so it'll be good to buy around then :)

    AMD < $600

    What's the difference between the two cases with psu's? I remember alot of people used to recommend that combo! If you go with the exact same build i mentioned, minus the hdd and add that GFX card from pccg you have your system!

    AMD < $600

    So lets keep it at under $600. Your right in saying the 450 is better then the 430 but its not within his budget. Could maybe try lowering the ram? Finding a better case/psu combo? Cheaper monitor? Other then the ram i cant see anything else that's able to be changed

    is the card really that weak? Instead of just saying that why not offer an alternative? He listed the games his mate plays and it'll be fine for that. I play sc 2 on a 8600 on medium settings fine is the card really that weak? Instead of just saying that why not offer an alternative? He listed the games his mate plays and it'll be fine for that.

    All from MSY edit - the other option is to maybe get a antec 1/300 and a better psu then the ones that come with that case/psu combo but from what ive read it will be fine!

    New case for SLI

    wow that's an awesome find mate. I was going to settle for the cm690 after reading a few reviews etc. the kit mentioned above would go well with it :)

    build for my mate

    New case for SLI

    I'm 'thinking' of WC'ing down the track, 932 should should do it fine for a beginner? Also with aircooling to start off with, is the pc loud and also the amount of light the escapes? I just want blackness! haha
  13. I know i'm just being lazy but what's the difference between the ud4 and the 7?

    New case for SLI

    those two lian li cases are beautiful but i'm kinda thinking they are just out of that price range. DO cases tend to drop in price alot over a couple weeks? I think my best bet to get away with it would be to buy my case a few weeks prior to buying the guts of the system so the wife won't notice :P EVIL! edit- nuke you'd be the man to answer this. I was looking at along the lines of a HAF X, so i had a look at your build log (btw setup looks sweet) and noticed you used to use a 932. How come you changed from the 932 to the X?

    New case for SLI

    I don't mean to hijack but I'm trying to plan for the future and might come up with a similar problem. Had my heart set on the r3 case because of the looks and the quietness about it but when i think about oc'ing i'm thinkin it won't suffice. So what are some good cases that have that nice sleek and simple and keep the sound down but also dont blow the budget! cheers guys
