hmmm, if I were to go with the SLI 260 settup and a 750W PSU, it would also leave enough cash for me to bump up to an i7, which when paired with the 600 series card would make for a pretty beastly rig around PS2 launch. Do we have confirmed prices on the Ivy bridge chips?

Expect it to be line in with the current pricing. 3570K around $230 and the 3770 will likely be around $330. I tend to tell people not to go with the HT as it doesn't add anything to gaming performance. If you must have it be my guest. I won't stop you obviously.

thanks, that's what I figured. I'm going to read up to see how hyperthreading effects some of the other programs I regularly use. I know Photoshop can take advantage of it, but I haven't really had issues with PS's performance in years. If my DAW stuff doesn't need it, it will probably be i5 all the way.

That will likely be the best way of going about this. If HT is usable you always seen a good gain with it verse not having it.

On the subject of graphics cards, I just received the 4850 my uncle was going to give me, but he had put it in a GeForce 430 box, so I'm like "that's not what I was expecting." Then I opened the box and it was a 4850 :P

the red on the card and the uncovered wires on the main power connector are both bugging my OCD side. Going to have to do something about that.

Re: My in progress build.


Just FYI, i have Phenom II (6 cores) , Crosshair IV (which is quite power hungry in itself) and 2 * 4850 in crossfire. Outlet draws maximum of 350W during gaming when second card is put to use, in planetside its only 240W. This PSU is 2 year old 450W model, so that translates at best 0.8 * 350 = 280W output (thats almost 200W to spare..).

One thing to keep in mind is, that efficiency of PSU is related to its rated maximum, rated at 800W with 200W output it might be generating a lot of heat for nothing! So to sum it up, i think there is marketing hype over selling you bigger numbers, but i would (now that i know the true power need) concentrate on getting those super quality, low wattage PSU units that are available nowdays.
