Windows 7: Show Us Your Rig [4]

I Love Raspberries

Just thinking - my first real rig was a Packard Bell 700Mhz and 256Mb Ram and cost me £1200. That was 15 years ago. The Raspberry Pi has virtually the same config yet is the size of an Amex card and costs £30.00. Such is life.

Matte black Phantom 630

Hi guys . So after a few upgrades on mobo ( Asus pbz77lx died ) , soundcard ,psu , and a case ( well 2 raven rv-03 has to be rma'd ) . I finally have my rig buttoned up and working properly for the first time in 4 weeks . It will be nice to sit down and enjoy it for a change , without parts failing .

What a great case to work on loads of room for cables and the matte black is stunning . Overall I'm chuffed to bit with how she turned out , nice tidy and clean looking . It was a dream to build I didn't run into any issues whatsoever , which was a pleasant change to my luck .

Here she is in all her black goodness .

paulstung,
Awesome pictures and looks to be a massive case with tons of options. Great use of mounts and cable routing. Keep posting more pictures they really look great and that new MSi mobo looks fantastic.....I've always had good luck with them.

Paulstung, Images were deleted. Would love to see them as that's a case I'm considering for my next build.

New build

Hi guys,

I'm ready to start ordering the parts for my next build, but it would be great if you could provide some comments/advice.

CPU: Intel i7 3770k or i5 3570k (any real, perceivable differences for gaming? I know there are a lot in benchs, but gaming wise?)
MOBO: Gigabyte Sniper 3 or ASUS Sabertooth Z77
GPU: MSI GTX680 OC Twin Frozr III (one for the time being) or 2 x Sapphire HD 7870 OC (the two radeons will perform better than the 680, but upgradability wise I think it is not a great choice. Advice?)
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1050W or Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W. I'm considering a third option because it comes as quite a bargain, but I would very much appreciate your comments on this one: BFG EX Series 1000W Modular. I know BFG went out of business some time ago, but some guys down here bought a hefty number of their PSU's when the company folded. JonnyGuru gives the unit a solid 8, and it comes at around half the price than the other two options (2 year warranty). Anyone with hands on experience with BFG PSU's? I'd love to get an Antec, a Seasonic, a Corsair or an SFP, but nobody carries them down here.
Memory: 16GB (2x8) GSkill Trident X 2400 CL9.
Case: NZXT Phantom 630 or Switch 810
SSD (OS): Corsair Force GT 120GB or OCZ Vertex 4 120GB (Sammies are still way too expensive for my taste)
Cooling: Custom waterloop based on XSPC Raystorm, Swiftech 655 and 360mm rad by XSPC. One of the reasons I'm considering the GTX680 is that I can get a full cover XSPC Razor waterblock for it, while they are not available for lower end cards like the 7870s. The guys down here only import the ones for the 680 and 7970.

I think that's about it.
As always, your comments and advice on my choice of components (feel free to suggest different ones!) is more than welcome.
Cheers!,

J

Tom's recently built a $1000 PC with the i5, which they compare to the $2000 one they made last time with the i7. They compare using gaming results. Don't know if that helps (I don't game )
