your psu is fine for what you have but if you plan to add a 2nd gpu, you might want to bump it up to 750-1k, not sure how much it would say you need if you added a 2nd

i would not know, living in the states, but if buying from amazon AND shipping internationally is cheaper by a ok margin i would do it but that could take days-weeks to get to you so it really is all up to you, but i would assume amazon would package international decent

amd would drop that by around 100$+ depending on which one you pick, also do you need a 135$ keyboard? if not you could get like a 70 or so, also with a amd you might be able to drop mobo price a little, and do you need a wifi adapter?

mainly messing around with, but would be useful to have all my c++ programs in one general location where i have access to, and i dislike the idea of cloud storage that i do not own 100%

edit: also for kinda cheap testing of multiplayer options in my school work, i dont know if those parts are good enough for that or if i can do that but the games would not really be that demanding

well the mobo does not matter to much since all 6 monitors will have to be ran off of your gpu, but msi makes good boards

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Will the Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card game on 2 monitors?"

  • 73 months ago
  • 1 point

well i would suggest 3 monitors because well 2 gaming is not great idea lol, i believe the ram on the gpu is important for multi monitors so you might wanna look into R9 280X i think it comes with 3gb which would help with more than one monitor

however at only 1440x900 i think the 770 will do fine for your son, any particular games?

you should be fine running 3 monitors, what resolution are the monitors? if they are not above 1080p, he should be able to game with a 770 on 3

edit: well more Googling says a 770 cant run high demanding games on 3 but you might want to find out more from nvidia owners because i am AMD lol

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Will the Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card game on 2 monitors?"

  • 73 months ago
  • 1 point

well according to 10 secs in Google, you can have 2 monitors setup with the 770 but nvidia surround requires 3 monitors so he will be able to use both monitors but when he games it will only use 1, unless you get 3 screens

edit: now if you were to go AMD gpu, eyefinity does not really care and will let you game on 2, but the middle will be right between the 2 monitors

Comment reply on Forum Topic "FOR SALE i7 Ivy Bridge non-OC build"

  • 73 months ago

well the computer was built awhile ago and your asking almost brand new for it so i doubt anyone here will buy it, also parting it out would be easier but your best bet is Craigslist or eBay if you plan to sell entire thing

also "the knowledge to build it" does not really qualify as a reason for a high price, since a lot of people here you can probably get to Skype with you to help you out, not saying you decided to have high price because you built it but i have seen a few ppl say something along those lines

maybe a AMD-fx 6300, its a 6 core and as for mobo its w/e you can find really that you like or that is good brand

you could switch to amd and save a little, but i dont see price for your mobo, so if you have that already i would suggest you just buy what you picked and as for gaming it should run dayz fine, i have seen the game but not played it and i got a 270 and its not bad

well first you want to put the gpu/cpu in the mobo outside of your case so in case something does not works you did not just waste time, also i just built my first one and i activated windows, downloaded all my drivers, downloaded real anti virus, then began downloading programs/games i use

the stock cooler will be fine since you do not plan to overclock, but i would still go with the 600 for a little future proof because you might add a cpu cooler, more fans and so on down the line

the prices work fine now but the completed builds section i still have to reload it, it works sometimes and it only takes first try to load but then it takes 3-4 refreshes at the worse so far
