For crossfiring 2 270x's? no. If you plan on crossfiring those cards in the future aim for a 700-750 watt supply.

Here's a list of power supplies for if you plan on crossfiring in the future: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/power-supply/#sort=a9&W=700,1600&e=6,5,4,3,2&p=1,2&qq=1&m=52,11,150,14,18,331,94,29,71,39,337

I'd say for a great price this PSU will fit the bill: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100w10500kr

If you have a little extra to spend, this one is more efficient and looks a little cooler: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100b10500kr

And if you don't like either of those, here's a whole list of PSU's in the wattage you need from all the companies who make safe power supplies: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/power-supply/#sort=a9&W=500,1600&e=6,5,4,3,2,1&m=52,11,14,331,94,29,71,39

You shouldn't need to replace the thermal paste on that card, the vapor-x is a great cooler. Also, 270X's are great overclockers, so try getting MSI afterburner once you get that and try bumping up the core clock and the max power consumption.

Incorrect. The 260x is a 7790 with 2gb of vram and a 100mhz increase in clock. The 260 non x is a cut down 260x with 1gb vram, slightly less shader units, and slightly decreased clocks. As for the rebranded 7770, that'd be the 250x, the non x 250 is lesser than the 7750, the 7750 has 512 shaders, the 250 has 384.

I dont think any 7200rpm drive is gonna be saturating sata 2 m8...

Not true. the 270 only has 1 6pin power connector so the overclocking headroom is greatly reduced. The 7870 and 270x both have 2 6pin's and are very overclockable. So if overclocking is what you want/need, get a 7870 or the x version.

Well, the 260 and 260x are both pretty recent, considering bonaire came out just a couple months before hawaii.

There are no concerns for running the RAM at 2133 if that's what it's rated at on the package.

I checked the ASROCK website for cpu compatibility on this motherboard and apparently this motherboard supports the i3 3220 without needing a bios update, so this build will work.

the 1gb is a bit limiting, if you can try to get a 7850 2gb or an nvidia gtx 650 ti boost that would suit you well

Yes, but it's likely that nothing will have to be changed at all, and he could just get a different motherboard anyway if he had any doubts.

I had a look at the apu's but even in dual graphics with a 6670 they were at best half as good as the 7770, and that was the highest model apu. I chose the 1600x900 monitor because it was cheaper and I could play on slightly higher settings at that resoloution than at 1080p.

Get an EVGA 680, they are very high quality and generally pretty quiet.

Yeah. Use the MSI 7770 ghz edition, and a seagate barracuda 7200rpm 1tb drive it's only 59$

you would probably be better off getting one 7970 ghz edition with a good cooler. an example would be this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202001

that card is a beast and has huge overclocking capability with the vapor-x cooler.

might want to consider the 8350 though, motherboards with more features for it are cheaper. It's also just as good if not slightly better than a 3570k. It overclocks better too. The only drawback is the power consumption and heat, but with the 212 evo you shouldn't have any problems, and power here in the US is cheap.

get a seagate barracuda 7200rpm 1tb drive, it is the same price as the 500gb drive you have listed.

really? I knew some came with 6gb vram 2x3gb. try to look around a bit and see if you can find one with 6gb.

Go for the 650 ti boost edition. It's basically the same card as the 660 But usually a fair bit cheaper.

Maybe one 690 instead of two 680's. But the 690 Is two 680's so not much difference there. The 690 easily beats the Titan.

Looks good although you might want to spend slightly less on CPU and A bit more on the graphics card next time. Something like a fx 6300 or 8320 and a 7870xt 2gb.

I might recommend you get a gtx 650 ti BOOST. It's almost exactly the same performance-wise to the 660, but it costs quite a bit less.

maybe using the current generation of APU would be better for the price. other than that looks great.

i'd recommend an arctic cooling alpine 64 plus cpu cooler, it's only 13.95, but it should keep the cpu a lot quieter and somewhat cooler than the stock heatsink.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$750 budget, compatibility an advice please"

  • 80 months ago

try this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/SGoa the differences from yours are as follows: 1. Better CPU. This CPU is much more efficient and has slightly better performance. 2. Graphics Card. This GPU is factory overclocked to reach the same speed as the 7770 ghz edition. 3. Power supply. The power supply you chose was from a company that doesn't make very reliable power supplies, this one from corsair should suit you just fine. 4. Case. I used a small case in this list as the cpu stays pretty cool and a mid tower or larger is not needed to keep these parts cooled.

This build is cheaper and has about the same, if not slightly better performance and definitely better efficiency.

This is probably the best build you can get for your budget. Also, it easily outperforms the a10 5800k apu crossfired with the 6670. The cpu is slightly more powerful than the a10 as well. enjoy!

Go with a pentium g2120 for the cpu, its around 10$ cheaper and has slightly better performance. As for graphics, the HIS radeon HD 7770 is on sale with a promo code for 89$ right now through tomorrow, I highly recommend you get it. For the hard drive, a seagate barracuda 1tb 7200rpm is 1$ less than the 500gb you chose. Also, what resoloution are you going to be playing at?

for a music producing pc you should probably buy a sound card.

also, i'd reccommend you get windows 7. it's file systems are much easier to navigate, and it is much better for multitasking/productivity work.

alright. then definitely try to get the card I listed above. it's probably the best performance/value card at your price range.

i'd reccommend going for the club radeon hd 7870 xt jokercard. its performance is nearly equal to a 7950 but it is still about the same price as the card in your list.

the cpu is good. try to find a radeon hd 6670 or 7750 with 2 gb of ddr3 ram. since you aren't doing any gaming, the fact that its using ddr3 instead of ddr5 shouldn't make much of a difference, if any at all.
