  • Had To Update

    So the other day my graphics card died. I went out and decided to just do a full upgrade on my computer. Here is the new specs! :)

    Win7 64 Bit

    GTX 560Ti 2Gig DDR5

    8 Gigs of DDR3 Ram

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Card

    ASUS M5A97 AMD 3+ Mobo

    2 Solid State HD's one of which is running windows

    2 Regular HDDs for general storage stuff.

    And a new 1050W PSU

    Overall, its a great new build and its stupid fast. Now begins the long slow process of getting all my programs and games back. And installing/updating ArmA :row__517:

    Nice build. Curious though, what resolution are you running that 560ti 2gb at? Also, why the large psu? One of the major common misconceptions is how much watts a computer needs. You would have been just fine with a 500w and if you were ever planning on sli a 600 would have been more than enough.

    Regardless, grats on your upgrade :).

      Its for all those USB mood lights and mini-fridges he runs.


      Congrats on the new rig, Dredge. I also just updated my GPU to a 560ti (1gb, but w/e) and have been enjoying going through all my games and maxing the settings! ;)

        You must have gotten a good price for all that coal Santa left you. Congrats on the build

          Nice build Dredge, what CPU are you running on it??

          Overall I am very jealous of some of those components!

            Me thinks somebody has ArmA3 on the brain. Congrats on the rig that can rule the world!

                Hopefully ArmA3 will run on a more efficient engine.

                  And yes, the PSU is for all the extra fans, mood lighting, and small fridges I find critical to gaming.

                        Except for a CoolerMaster case I have the same setup and am very happy with it. Have an old SSD and 3 old HD’s and a old Nvidia 9800GTX, some of which will need changing before ArmA 3! Got $200 in my Newegg account and a birthday coming up...donations are always welcome:)

                          keep hoping but given it's history it's unlikely...(my guess)

I only need new a new mobo, ram, vid card(s) and a second monitor! Who knows how long thats gonna be though, all I know is that I have it and I cant use it. It kills me!
