Default Re: Building new PC :)

Just found out about the new Antec gaming cases

Antec Dark Fleet DF-85


I gotta say...over the Cooler Master, this looks really good. Comes with 7 Fans already, and the hot swap HDD looks so handy!.

The only negative thing has to be those annoying drive door thingies on the top for your DVD/Blu Ray

Hmm never mind, the HAF-X seems waay better compared to the Antec

you must one of the lucky ones, when I had one of those, it was crackle for almost every sound coming out of it. I would go with a vanilla xfi titanium pci-e. And I have the vanilla haf-x, it supports e-atx mb's, so your doing a little future proofing there if you go that way. And no, it's not ugly, Has huge fans on it including side. the 950 cpu is the sweet spot for i7's in terms of price and value. I would definitely buy the corsair ax 1200. it's a gold 80 plus certified power supply. I have the ud9 mb, got it for $525 cdn. regularly sells in NA for $700 cdn. as for graphics, the only upgrade option I can think for you is the 699x radeon or nvdiia's 595 when they come out. As for ram, stick with 6gb for tri channel whatever you do.

thx

Btw is the 960 worth going for? I am actually gonna wait till around Jan 20-30~ before buying the stuff/building. The sandy would be out and the prices would go down a tad bit more...

To be honest, I don't think the performance difference between the 950 and 960 justifies the price difference.
