    Just go through that and find what you consider satisfying. Realize the numbers are done in a fairly boring environment though. The benches can't hold a candle to a 25man raid after all. The link above says 63.8 fps, but on the other hand the i3 2100 says 94.1 fps. o_O;

    That said, I think we drifted offtopic from your question. O_o;

    Personally, the cooler you get with the CPU is fair enough for the time being, imo. It'd be a bigger deal to get a worthwhile graphics card. What are you planning to use the computer for anyway, and what sort of budget are you on, etc?
    Loving that link, bookmarked!!

    Looks like im going to go for the x6 phenom II 1055t, 68 fps in WoW, I assume that is under heavier load than a 25man? Although im nto too fussed as I hit a max of 6 fps atm. Lol.

    Its used for mostly wow and general use, I do want to frapsing more and youtube vids etc.

    Highly unlikely. It says 74 for my CPU at stock clocks and I dip to 30's in 25 mans, overclocked to 4.1GHz.

    So flashing from 1503 BIOS to the 2103 update chopped like 10~ seconds off my boot time, damn... I should do some benchmarking, having updated the firmware on my SSD and this BIOS flash... things are definitely acting more snippy.

    Holy crap. Another Sandy Bridge E build!

    The 750 watt PSU though is probably bottle-necking your expansion-ability, however - like I would not suggest adding another 6970 in for Crossfire... definitely not.

    I wasnt planning on crossfire. Just replacing the 6970 for a 7970. But im pretty skint after those parts ^^ Bigger PSU i can afford, but when I asked the guys at komplett.no, they said 750w would be enough still for this setup.

    yeah it's enough, just doesn't give you must extra wattage for future additions, that's all.

    It will be.
    It might run close if you overclock all of it through hell and back, but you should have no trouble supporting dual 6970s with that CPU, despite the latter being powerhungry.

    Two 7970, not so much though.

    A shame you ruined the build with a horrid case, though.

    I kinda like the tower, I know lots of people say it looks horrid. But people just have different tastes. I really don't like towers that looks too insane. ^^

    Looks like I can safely OC this processor to 3.8 with no stability issues.....might even be able to push it to 4....not too bad, that should up the performance some :P and net more fps.

    Thanks for the tips, time for sleep so I can get up early enough to cancel this order, lols.

    Out of curiosity, can I use my old Gtx 470 as a dedicated PhysX card?

    I'm sure you can yes, but I don't think you'd want to really, there are only a handful of games that even use PhysX:

    I wouldn't really get anything worthwhile out of it imo.
    Moreover, it's easy to throw it into the watercooling loop I'm planning, it appears. Just a universal block will do fine on it, as it's already got the passive cooling ribs and all for the remaining pieces.

    Make the 470 into a folding GPU.

    Go.
