Fixed. Thanks for the input.

Think he probably meant "why don't you use the 109 dollar Z77 motherboard and the 3570K in the 950 build as well as the 1050 build as they come out at the same price?"Because Z77 is a more improved platform, and the i5 3570K a slightly better CPU?

300, 400 and 450 builds all have room in the budget to go for the Spinpoint f3 500GB if you wish to change it, it is $5 for 180GB more space.

He wrote, "4x4GB" so I am guessing he means you buy 2 of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233284
Which is what he has hyper linked. You buy two of those, stick all four sticks in either the light tan or dark brown slots, boom, quad channel.
They are still just sample builds. 4x4GB is enough for most users - if you specifically need more then buy more.
Hey I just have 2 quick questions:
1. How much extra power would I have to work with on the 3400 system? Also, would the power suppy from the 2700 build be ok instead? (Corsair 850)
2. What are your thoughts on these cards and this company (PoV) ?
PoV-TGT GeForce GTX 680 UltraCharged - 2GB
PoV-TGT GeForce GTX 680 Charged - 4GB
I would link them but apparently I can't post links yet because I am so new.
Their website is pointofview-online.com

And FYI this is a Seasonic Platinum 860w, a PSU that can run completely with even 900-1000w loads thanks to sky-scraping standards of the Platinum series. Won't even break a sweat.
So yes, a Corsair 850 will also comfortably do the job. There's pretty much no way to make that kind of build use more power...unless you add a third GTX680 (bad idea and terrible scaling). The Platinum was probably thrown in because it's the best PSU in the world for the 800-900w range and pretty much most components in the 3400 build are screaming "overkilllll".
2) As for Point of View cards, I personally have no experience with them. But their 3-year warranty looks solid, the phase designs are improved and their cards come with huge factory overclocks...I think those are some of the highest factory OC's I've seen actually. It just means that there's jack-all OC room left and you won't have to push much further to hit the limit.
Also keep in mind those GTX680 Ultra/charged coolers are triple-slot. Things can get fairly tight with triple slot cards in SLI.
As for the point of view custom coolers, those should be the ones arctic makes

Budget gaming build that can tackle most
newer games. Enough if you only play World
What is 'enough'? Could you please give me an idea of how much FPS I would expect to get in a 25 man raid and with what settings? Thanks in advance
