I have been playing COD4 on PC @ 125fps on my crappy PC for Years!

All i know is, i can see the difference between 30fps 60fps 120fps 250fps.
I would just like to be around the 90 mark.

I will more than likely have AA & AF set to around 4 each..
everything else maxed out on most games.

I am sure i could hit the high 90's with that setup.

Here is where i'm at atm.



Could do with some advice with the following:

. Need suggestions for a H100 compatible case?

. Can that PSU handle x2 HD 7970's?

. Does that MOBO run x2 PCIe slots @ x16?

. Oh and is that board compatible with the upcoming IVY bridge?

Just because i wont be buying until around April, so if its compatible and IVY bridge gets good reviews,
Then i don't need to mess about re configuring my build.

Your mobo supports ivy bridge, and 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8). How high are you planning on overclocking? I have mine stable at 4.3GHz with air cooling.

Yeah roads overclocking really isnt necessary with most new hardware but if its there and is free then why not :)
You would be amazed and how much quicker things like unzipping large files is,  sounds silly but I download a lot of large (10GB+) files that are rar or similar and once had my system set at stock (Usually 4.2Ghz down to 2.66Ghz stock) and the time difference is a few minutes...... doesn't sound much but often i download movies as a spur of the moment thing to watch that minute......

Gaming wise most games don't benefit that greatly from OC on the cpu as they are mostly graphic card bound, but a few titles do benefit massively such as Arma 2.

publix id laugh if your fps count is only in the 90s with that setup

maybe double or triple that and it should become realistic ;)

very doubt full. I've seen numerous videos / game plays on YouTube on similar setup's with 90 being the average @1080p..

I'd be ecstatic if it were any higher.

=========================

Anyway what the deal?
Will that PSU run x2 HD 7970's?

And i'm trying to decide between the GT level 10 the NZXT Phantom and the Corsair 650D?

Also what about this PSU; OCZ ZX Series 850W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply

Your mobo supports ivy bridge, and 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8). How high are you planning on overclocking? I have mine stable at 4.3GHz with air cooling.

As high as it will go lol. "safely e.g 1.4v? supposed to be safe assuming that the H100 will keep the temps down :D which i am... :D"

Ok so tonight i found out i'm a @#$%!

I just can't bring my self to hit the buy button lol....
So i realised that i have probably dropped about a thousand-
diffrence setups over the past few weeks.

But its only becasue this is a lot of money to me.
After all the research i have done and all the help everyone has given me.

I keep coming back to this build.
The only things missing is the H100 CPU Cooler, and a HDD.

The reason i have left out the H100 is because right now i cant afford it.
So i plan on buying the retail version of the 2700k which comes with its own stock fan.
Which should tide me buy for another month or two...

The HDD i will buy next month.
This way i get all the parts i have researched (which are all lets say premium bang for buck future proof.)
Granted its not "the" bang for buck PC! but it is at all the individual price points.

Maybe the XFX Black Edition HD 7970 isn't, but hey...

Anyway I would love to get this down by another 100 but :@ that's never going to happen.

Ultim8 if your reading this please save me lol. (not buying until tomorrow)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 is a good and cheap cooler if you want something better than stock for a while

so no liquid cooling? ;)

the cooler is ok, better than stock
but dont expect extreme clocks with it
but you took the better cpu, so thats fine tbh

also your ram is not flatline, that means big cpu coolers probably wont fit into your system as the ram blocks them with its height
but nothing to worry about

:) thanks od1n, as I said just a cheap cooler to tide me by for a month or two.
Then I'll buy a H100 ;)

Transaction was stopped by my bank, and I have to visit my local branch before they can allow it lol.
I messed up my password :/ way to many passwords!

Anyway should be done a dusted tomorrow.
And probably arrive monday tuesday.
