Once kepler shows up, prices will surely fall. Ya right now 7950 is pricey but it performs better than a gtx 580. So the price tag is justified in that respect. Then you have the default 3gb framebuffer.

Right now high quality 8GB sticks are hard to find. With that kind of a setup you want 16GB (4x4GB) mate. Plenty for now.

Note that OCability reduces with an increase in the number of sticks.

You want to watercool? You need to buy the parts online and import them. No shop keeps stock of custom parts here. I had to take that route with my setup.

Remove that 3960X and switch to a 3930k. Replace GTX 580 with 7970 CFX or Kepler.

Get a Cosmos II case or a HAF-X at least. The 932 is a dust magnet. I know because I own one. You could also import Danger Den, Mountain Mods or XSPC cases.

1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing> 3/8" ID 5/8" OD tubing. You need to choose some decent radiators to cool the GPU and CPU. I recommend 2x XSPC RX360. The CPU-370 is a good choice. However you want to change the waterblocks because getting 580s at this day and age is stupidity at its worst. You also need a pump. Although a T-line usually suffices, it is good to have a reservoir to bleed the loop and get rid of air bubbles. Use distilled water with some 24k silver to prevent micro-organism growth in your loop.

I cannot stress enough the necessity of heavy research before spending even a Paisa on watercooling components. Get the core components first. Then plan your build on paper and maybe some computer rendering. Design the loop and how you plan to set the flow.

According to your post, you decided that slapping on waterblocks and tubing completes the job. If that is the case, do not spend anything on watercooling. Spend the next two months educating yourself about it and then come back with fresh queries.
If that is not the case, I'm sorry, as I was going by your post.

Re: PC Buying Guide 2012 - Q1

Thanks to the thread "Best Graphics for money in India", it got lot easier for me to opt for good card. I ve always loved those tomshardware articles for Best GPUs & CPUs for money.

I want to get PC for gaming built around either HD 6770 or HD 5670 in the most minimal configuration.
Cheapest & yet reliable CPU, Mobo, PSU for HD 6770 and HD 5670.

My Budget for GPU, CPU, Mobo, PSU is 17000.
I thought to spend 10K for HD 6770+PSU . and 7K for Athlon X4/X3/X2+Mobo.

Hi, ajaymailed, thanks for the complement.
That thread is strongly recommended for choosing graphic cards in India. I was unable to find any similar kind of "best card for money" in India anywhere else. Websites write mostly about high performance cards above 6K, but its hard to find best card for 2K/3K and below 4K.

I hope these kind of info gets published in think digit.


Right off the assembly line
Re: PC Buying Guide 2012 - Q1
