What is the minimum power supply for two GeForce GTX 670's to run in SLI?
I am in the middle of a new PC build and have almost all of my components except memory and a few other misc items. My motherboard is the ASUS Rampage Extreme IV and I am wanting to go with a 32GB kit.
I have been searching forums and trying to get a clear answer on what is the best but no luck so far. In the past I have had Corsair but recently been looking at Geil, G.Skill, and a few other brands. My PC will be a gaming machine and want something that will perform extremely well as well as overclocking too. Any help and feedback would be much appreciated.
Hi, I have an Aerocool Strike-X 500W PSU
My specs are:
- Core i5 3570k, not oc'd
- 500GB 7200RPM HDD
- 8GB of DDR3 RAM
I would like to add GIGABYTE's Radeon HD 7950 non-OC to it.
Will the PSU be ok?
Story is, I'm buying a new computer after five years or so with my laptop, chose to buy a PC since a laptop has a very few upgrade possibilities ( or so I think ).
These are the specs:
- CPU: Intel i7-3770
- Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77 V
- Memory: 2 Corsair Vengeance 8GB
- GPU: XFX HD 7970 3GB/384bit
I'm torn between the Samsung S27A950 and ASUS VG278HE.
I'm mainly using this computer for movies and games ( League of Legends, Dragon Age, Witcher, Guild Wars 2, Star Craft, Diablo 3, the likes, I play rarely to none FPS games, because it makes me dizzy and gives me headaches ). I might plan to do some little photoshop and video editing, but that's very far from being a professional.
So, with that said, would you mind helping me with these ( bare with me here, some of the questions might sound noobish ):
- 1. I'm more inline with the picture and color quality than the response time, I'm far from being a pro player but I play-to-win.
- 2. Both of the monitor have a Dual Link DVI-D but the GPU hae a Dual Link DVI-I, what cable should I use to get a 120hz/144hz refresh rate.
- 3. Is there any huge difference if I played a 1080p in a 60hz, 120hz and 144hz, will I notice it? ( I'm aware that films are recorded in 60fps, TV shows in 24fps, just talking about the quality of the image)
- 4. I'm not yet a fan of 3D gaming, I heard that 3D shutter glasses can give you headaches, so is there any other alternatives.
Thanks in advance!
I want to improve my gaming performance although I have very empty pockets, I currently have a Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 1GB Super Overclocked now. I have enough money to buy a Gigabyte Radeon HD7790 2GB Overclocked, but I'm hesitating because I can also buy another Radeon HD6870 1GB. I'm not sure whether the CrossFired cards would be much better although I'm having trouble finding another HD 6870 but i can find a HD 6850 (can the two diff cards be used in CrossFire?)
So help me, should I CrossFire the two cards for now to increase performance, or upgrade to the HD 7790. Although, I don't think it will improve my PC... I have a 750W power suppy and a CrossFire-enabled motherboard.
Also if you can help - where can I buy a Radeon HD6870 1GB Super Overclocked - LOL LOOKED EVERYWHERE!
Here's my spec:
- MB: MSI 7636 H55M E33 Chipset AMI BIOS v10
- PSU: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500W
- CPU: i3 530
- RAM: 2 X KVR1333D3N9/4G (8GB)
- HDD: 1 X ST3320418AS Seagate Barracuda 320GB and 1 X WD 500GB
- GPU: ASUS GT 440 1GB DDR5
- OS: Win7 64bit ultimate
- DISPLAY: 32" Sony Bravia EX65 1080p
Im thinking of upgrading my GPU to 7850, will it be any problem especially on CPU bottleneck, the PSU (since Cooler Master Power calculator tells me i need 550w ones). What do you guys recommend?
Should I go for Radeon HD 7950's in CrossFire, or a single HD 7970 on my Samsung S27A950D 120Hz monitor?
Looking for new graphics card setup everything else is up to date with latest hardware.
I am confused between 1x AMD Radeon HD 7970 or 2 x HD 7850's, I'm using the Samsung S27A950D 120Hz-capable monitor. What is your preference?
Hi guys, I am ready to purchase an SSD! I'm looking at 256gb as the capacity, what would you recommend?
I am running:
- Core i7 950 @ stock
- MSI X58-Pro motherboard
- 3gb DDR3 1333mhz ram
- MSI's GeForce GTX 680 Lightning Edition
I want to upgrade my system, and run all games at 1080p at a minimum of 45fps - what do you suggest?
I would like to upgrade my system, I have an MSI N670 PE/OC and an Intel Core i7 2600k OC to 4.6ghz. I want to run all recent games at 1080p with all graphics settings set to maximum (for example Crysis 3).
Also I don't want anything below 45 fps. Should i get another GTX 670? Or sell this one and buy lets say two AMD Radeon HD 7970s (more vram)?
I would appreciate your opinion, thanks.
What is the best brand to buy for a GeForce GTX 660 or 660 Ti? ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI?
