    I stopped the video at the 7 minute point because I felt there was a bit too much blah blah blah and not enough close ups of the action aka installation of components and getting the settings right for the motherboard bios. Each of us I am sure want to have custom items and various options should be visualized/demonstrated.

    Thats a great build. I went for the same result. Strong mobo/pc. Even then you could swap in a stronger cpu, but youre right with the gpu upgrade path. Cool to see similar views and interests between builds.

    What is your gpu setup? Single/SLI? Im thinking an additional 660 in sli would be beneficial, but for an extra 300 im not too sure if it justifies the purchase. The 192bit on this card is a drag to be honest..

    Video was made before the GTX660 was released. I actually just built a machine like this using a 660GTX. No need at the moment for anything more for me. I wanted a bit of overkill for the CPU/MB combo as this is the area that is meant to last the longest, while the GPU can be easily replaced as the need arises. Last PC lasted for 6 years, with one GPU upgrade, so I hope this one does the same.

    we’re talking about a hexacore workstation here…not a mid-end gaming rig…

  5. MrBonami2 4:10 am 26/12 of 2012

    eh i run bf3 with 4gb…

    X79 build with a GTX590? Way to cheap out. Who in their right mind would dish out the coin for an X79 and only top it with a single 590. Nothing less than GTX660 IMO… SLI690s if youre serious

  7. akchronic79 5:00 am 26/12 of 2012

    Lol someones on the liquor

  8. cerdjee4 5:08 am 26/12 of 2012

  10. wsxe5011 6:43 am 26/12 of 2012

    lol they have a old bord i have a z77

  11. cerdjee4 7:25 am 26/12 of 2012

    ah well, 16 gigs is still more than sufficient for most users

  12. ThePresD 7:58 am 26/12 of 2012

    well now hearing all this my 16gb feelsi REALLY outdated! LOL :D

  13. cerdjee4 8:10 am 26/12 of 2012

    I meant at least 64 gigs, but I was wrong by the way. and yes, that could be possible. there’s also an msi board that can take 128gigs…it’s not really that big a factor because there are no dimms that are bigger than 8gigs for the regular consumers, such as the likes of us.

  14. ThePresD 8:46 am 26/12 of 2012

    What about the SRX? I heard it can take 96GB?

  15. cerdjee4 9:25 am 26/12 of 2012

    ahh yup, you’re right…my bad,

  16. cerdjee4 9:31 am 26/12 of 2012

    what board do you have?

  17. amaralvictor 10:05 am 26/12 of 2012

    Not true, my mobo only handles 32GB

  18. GingerHamster19 10:33 am 26/12 of 2012

    i know, but he does video rendering etc, he doesnt have it just for minecraft. you see no benefit from usings lots of ram in games.

  19. Dzik Putih 10:50 am 26/12 of 2012

    when you visit elric’s pc from motherboardsorg..his ram value are 96GB…-_-

  20. GingerHamster19 11:00 am 26/12 of 2012

    If you want to build strength, you should look up on google Max Muscle Method. They can guide you and help you get the body you deserve.

  23. Dzik Putih 1:11 pm 26/12 of 2012

  24. cerdjee4 2:08 pm 26/12 of 2012

  25. Rockdaground 2:13 pm 26/12 of 2012
