To no surprise, I doubt someone who paid to have you build his PC would overclock it themselves. What a shame..

  1. We work in a very quiet office room, we're 3, and a loud fan could irritate us - I would rather pay for a premium quiet fan.
  2. I thought about it but I have no intentions on overclocking or stressing my graphic card to require so much cooling. I'm thinking the EVO we currently have in this PC can do just fine.
  3. I feel as if the computer isn't "snappy" enough. I don't know why but when under load, it's just extremely and frustratingly slow. I thought about just building a spare computer for whatever purpose with what we replace and "upgrade" this workstation - or more like replace for new hardware. CPU might be worn out... I don't know.
  4. Work is for AutoCAD 2014 purposes. We can easily use 16gb+ while 3D drafting. I shouldn't need to buy a new license though. I do not know how to use Linux and neither does anyone in this office.
  5. Yeah... the PSU was already in this desktop before I started working here. It has no issues so I'll just keep it.
  6. The one I have at the moment is failing. It needs a replacement.

Follow-up questions:

  1. Do you highly recommend 240mm cpu water cooling?
  2. Should I just not bother getting a new CPU/motherboard?

Bundle your sticks, you save money and get better performance (2x dual channel probs) that way.

"...and has quad channel memory." ... no comment.

'Future proof' ultra settings is something everyone wishes for but isn't realistic. If you're into 1080p monitors, perhaps two, you'll be good for a year or two, maybe.

The day you buy something it almost instantly becomes outdated.

Yes your 7990 will fit. You have 2x (1x PCI Express x16 slot) .. 1 PCIEX16 and 1 PCIEX4. The 780 / 780ti is an upgrade, not a downgrade.

Both, reviews show perhaps 10% increase in performance on the Ti. Does that justify the price difference when they're available - I'll leave that up to you. If you're still unsure, check some benchmarks on current gen games with a 1440p monitor. There should be a few out, Linus most definitely did a youtube video.

SLI-780/Ti can easily handle a single 1440p monitor displaying any current gen games easily on ultra.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "27" 2560x1440p 120Hz Monitor for $499"

  • 77 months ago

Please read the fine line "up to 120hz" ... It's a 1440p IPS monitor with a clock refresh rate of 60hz. You have this in every other 1440p monitor. If we go further into detail under tech specs specs: Refresh rate: 60Hz (up to 120Hz - please read the Overclock Overview) .. so if we go there:

" First, we need to start from the beginning (always a good place to start) and ensure everyone understands that currently there is not a 27 inch 1440 IPS panel designed to run at a 120hz refresh rate. All current 1440 IPS panels are rated and warrantied from their respective manufacturers at a 60hz refresh rate. However, many, if not all, 1440 IPS panels can be "overclocked." That is to say have their internal refresh rates bumped up from the base rate of 60hz to some higher number. How much a particular IPS panel can be overclocked comes down to the panel's printed circuit board (PCB) design. By and large, most IPS panels can only be overclocked to 65-67hz before showing colored lines, going all black, or exhibiting some other strange picture."

Only check your graphic card and cpu... the rest is kind of pointless to update unless you have spare time. For example, if your cpu is Intel, go to Intel;s official website and find your cpu's model... like the 4770k for example. It'll then show you which driver is the newest and voilà, download / install.

Your graphic card and other components always comes with an install disk. The only one you really need is your graphic card's driver. Is that all you need?

Initial release date ... 2006 ... ATI FireGL V7300 was an extremely powerful card back in the day. It's a workstation card that does well with 3D work and rendering. Not to mention for it's time, that's impressive.

It's still viable to this day as a workstation card and that's why the price tag stayed. Although I expect it to go discontinued everywhere once they run out of stock because there's better options out there now - at that price.
