Yeah, the GHZ is 60 bucks more. Stick with your GTX 670.
It was on couple lists of top ten gpu and was higher rated why I asked
Looking for a good monitor now to show off these graphics lol, probably gonna stay at 22 inch what you think
I personally like 27'- 32' screens. But, it's all personal preference when it comes to monitors. I'm not the best when it comes to monitors. However, there is a lot of people on the forum who are knowledgeable when it comes to them. If you are looking for solid suggestions. I would recommend starting a new thread for it.
I personally disagree with Blkfx1, the 7950, 7970, and 7970 GHz will provide better performance than a 670. The 7950 can overclock better. For a first time builder, nVidia is easier to deal with because the drivers are a bit easier to use (there is a clean install option built in vs. with AMD you need to download a tool before installing new drivers). But for better performance, the 7950 stock (in some cases), 7970, and 7970 GHz will outperform it.
Edit: For $320, the 7950 is a great buy.
Are you saying stock 7950 is faster then a 670?
Never mind, I was looking at an old source from a few months back. I wanted to provide proof, but then noticed that the drivers were very old. So the drivers have basically won this battle.
Don't get me wrong, the HD 7950 is a good card. Hell, I use two of them. But, right now a GTX 670 can be OC'd to out perform a GTX 680. And, with Nvidia drivers being more reliable than AMD's I think it would be his best shot.
Yeah, that is what I meant before. For rookies, nVidia drivers are self explanatory. But with AMD, the drivers have to be clean installed or else you get trouble. Overall though, well said Blk.
Hey blkfx would the gtx 690 go with my setup or would I have to change some components
If you are new to PC gaming, an enthusiast card like that is not needed. What games are you gonna be playing and at what resolution?
Battlefield , far cry, crysis.. mostly fps..I'm either buying a asus ips full HD monitor or a benq 2420 tn monitor 120 hz...
GTX 670 and IPS.
Dont waste your money on BenQ trash. Overpriced monitors. I would say get a GTX 670 or 3GB 660ti or 7970 GHz. The extra memory will come in handy with future games. Also FPS games are the most demanding, so I would get the best card you can get for your money. I would recommend a GTX 680, but you can easily overclock a 670 to 680 stock levels.
Thanks for all the advice , I've ordered alot my components already, now I'm hearing it's good to have a ssd and a hdd what you think? I'm post a pic of a ssd I found on amazon
Would this go with my setup?
It's nice to have a SSD + HDD combination. But, it isn't something that's absolutely necessary. Samsung,OCZ, and Intel makes pretty good SSD's if your looking into getting one.
I hear makes games load faster with both , I got my i7 CPU today and it came with a cooling fan, I done ordered my cooler master evo but do I need it?
It will decrease your load times but, that is all it will really do. At Least for games that is...
As for your CPU cooler, If you're not going to overclock then the stock cooler is fine.
Game loading speed isnt that influenced by an HDD vs SSD. Games nowadays cache data to the RAM so that they will load quicker. Since you have >8GB of RAM you are fine. SSDs are great to have and they are becoming the norm. I wouldnt go with Intel SSDs unless they use their custom controller. Dont waste your money on Intel SSDs with a sandforce controller. You would basically be paying for the brand name then. I would recommend Samsung SSDs (840 Pro) and OCZ SSDs (Vertex 4 or Vector).
I think you mean decrease.
Yeah I did ._. lol, I am out of it today.
I feel ya man. Happens all the time.
Hey blkfx1 would this be good hard drive combo for my setup? these and my software is all I got left to order
