    Well, to be fair, 64 bit will likely allow the possibilities of having WoW support newer hardware better. Especially in 25 man situations, perhaps. It might just make things run a bit smoother and with higher end systems get even more fps and whatever? Idk.

    Support newer hardware better? It can't even make use of current hardware, an i5 2500K + GTX560 Ti setup is enough to make it go "bwuh?" and dip to low frames in 25mans anyway.

    Although Vesseblah did mention something about WoW raid performance being bottlenecked by the combat log itself, but that still doesn't explain why FPS dips even lower as you increase settings from High to Ultra (and the CPU/GPU usage hardly budges) - polygon/particle rendering has nothing to do with transfering data over the internet, it's all done on your client.

    Idk. x_x I've been off WoW for a good 6 months now.. holy crap I just realized that. So I can't be too bothered to care *too much* but I'm still extremely interested in seeing how the 64 bit works out, is it worth the $15? Eh.... we'll see. If you folks tell me that it's exceptionally different, I might cave, I think Sephiracle was saying something along the same lines.

    so I noticed that you have no amd cpu's listed for any of the gaming set up..is there a reason for that? if not what are some good amd cpus to use? as I know they are much cheaper than intel

    There isn't any because performance wise they simply don't beat Intel. Open a topic of it's own if you wanna debate it though because it wont turn out pretty.

    GPU: Asus 280X TOP (1080MHz/1700MHz) RAM: Corsair LP/LV white 8GB 1600MHz

    That topic would just get locked as well, they always have in the past because they inevitably descend into fanboys flaming each other... What you said is the truth, AMD chips are not recommended because the 2500k and 2600k simply obliterate even the most expensive AMD chips when it comes to gaming.

    The segments where AMD is extremely strong right now is in HTPC builds and office computers. They are also fairly strong in the mid-range workstation segment (although SB-E along with the 2600k take the price in most ranges).

    For gaming however, right now intel seems to be the smarter choice, both in terms of performance and price. The Sandy Bridge architecture really is that strong. AMD has some nice CPUs in the mid and low-range segment, but for the most part intel has the edge. If you are on a budget, you can check out the FX-4100 CPU.

    With shadows on highest the game recalculates every. Single. One. Every. Single. Frame.

    Any suggestions for a Wireless Receiver card? What about for a TV tuner card?

    I just wanted to say thank you to Marest and all the others on this board. Today I completed the $800 Gaming build (followed it exactly) and turned it on for the first time. It ran without a hitch and I got Windows 7 installed before I had to go back to work.

    I just have to download the Nvidia drivers for the gpu and then run an ethernet line downstairs for internet and I will be all set.

    This was my first build, and I really wanted to say thank you to all!

    We're always happy to help out SmthJce33!

    Be sure to post pictures of your computer in the "Post your gaming setup!" megathread!

    Just wanted to let you know that the case in the Family/Office 350 build is deactivated on NewEgg.

  16. #236
    The middle monitor in the peripheral suggestion (LG IPS226V-PN) is deactivated on NewEgg.

    Fully updated:
    - All prices have been updated.
    - Deactivated or out-of-date parts have been replaced.
    - Some cases have been replaced.
    - Workstation builds revised. There is now one SB and one SB-E sample build.
    - Peripherals overlooked. New monitor and mouse added.

    Further, I'm working on a "Case Suggestion" post which I'll hopefully release soon. As always, feedback is very welcome (either post here or PM me directly). Even if I don't answer (I'm fairly busy from time to time IRL) I appreciate it a lot.

    Cheers Marest
    Will you be basing your Case Suggestion post on the original Case Catalog thread? Or just updating that one?

    I'll most likely discontinue the case catalog. Updating and maintaining it with every single good case on the market is a bit of a hand-full and not something I have time for unfortunately. The case suggestion post I'm working on will be very similar to the peripherals suggestions but contain a summary of the features of every case (or at least that's the plan). I'm aiming to include around 16 cases in varying shapes and sizes (mostly focusing on cases meant for gaming rigs).

    Such a wonderful job Marest! ^^
    As a "beginner" I can't thank you enough
