GPU: 6950 2GB @ 1920 x 1080
what about the Asus P8P67 Pro R3 P67 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard? If you are in UK you could get it from Ebuyer on http://www.ebuyer.com/product/260185
I live in Slovakia.
These websites are the ones I can use:
Will the ASUS P8P67-M PRO (rev 3.0) be capable of handling the mentioned 8 GB ram?
And I am still looking for a good DVD/CD drive too - nothing too expensive!. Any suggestions?
Anything made by Sony - won't be too expensive.
Any names of products?
Is the cooler that comes with the processor good enough or should I get the mentioned cooler? It does cost 68 Euros. Is it worth it?
If you don't plan on overclocking you'll be ok with the stock cooler.
No, I don't think I plan overclocking with the Corsair CX 600. It will have enough just running my system.
I did some adjustments to my planned rig:
CPU Cooler: Maybe none, using the stock cooler
GPU: MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC
HDD: SAMSUNG SpinPoint EcoGreen F2 1500GB
EDIT: what does it mean, API: Microsoft DirectX 10 on the i5 2500k processor?
From wiki; here's a quick overview to DirectX ... full article here.
what does it mean when DirectX 10? Will it only run DX 10?
What about unlocking the 6970 with the 6950? How does that work? Would I need to get a bigger PSU for unlocking? Are there any risks?
For the motherboard, wouldn't the MSI P67A-C45 (B3)be better?
