Kaasar di ata gumagana ung tab dito eh
palpak tuloy ung spacing

mukhang aus yang antec 1200 for 9k na yan ah.
Any comments and suggestions?

your build looks pretty good for today...

some comments though:

2 months from now (or 1month and a couple of weeks),  expect fluctuation of prices (either because of christmas time, meaning higher prices... or release of newer, more powerful components).....

but if ever the new ones will be released, i think the extreme versions will go first, which possibly be waay over your budget.....

if you have no intention of going i7 anytime soon, just stick with a ddr2 motherboard and rams.... ddr3 is a bit too expensive for now...

if you have no plans in overclocking, you might want to get other rams, kingston value rams or geil are cheaper i think... but getting 4GB is a good decision.

i'm not sure how big the difference between a twin processor hdd and the traditional one, but i know that 1TB would only cost you 6.5k @pchub, not sure if it is also twin processor....

i think going for gtx260 (216) is a better idea....

i'm not sure with powercomm ups, but you might want to try APC instead...

instead of zalman, go for thermalright, the gigantic 120 ultra or black will do a great job...  (or other contact type heatsinks)

lastly, yes the 1200 antec case is nice, and HUGE!!! 3 120mm front fans, with extra bays to spare.... 2 120mm at the rear.....  if i had the money, and space i'll get one.. LOL



@julez
halos pareho lang naman yung dalawa eh, go for gtx260 na!!!
or 4870 muna, tapos di ka matutuwa sa performance, bebenta mo sa akin, tapos bibili ka ng gtx280.. HAHAHAH

hmmm
ayaw ko ng corei7
mahal
at early version pa yan
dami palpak dyan malamang
ok na sa akin ung ram na un para medyo may dating ung itsura hehehehe
und hdd na nilagay ko eh ung dual processor nga para mabilis ung access time
it is the next fastest to the velociraptor or if not the 3rd fastest
no idea kung san merong 216 sp dito sa pinas at ang price nya eh.
masyadong malaki ung mga thermalright ultra 120 extreme eh
yoko nun
APC 1000va is so expensive

mga bros.. i'm having a hard-time picking which one will be the better buy..

Geforce GTX 260 (216)
or

Radeon 4870 (1GB)


i'm having a hard time choosing bec. of nvidia's CUDA offering which i'm considering bec. i'm planning to get the new Adobe CS4 which make use of CUDA but the 4870 (1GB) is looking fine under game benches which i'll also be doing..

gundammit! hard to choose! argh!

Go for GTX260 216cores. to give you an idea how much the two fared in FarCry 2 game performance since 19inch monitor mo. max settings should be 1600x1200.
also, if budget is not a problem then GTX260 216 cores is your choice.


i7 6700K | Gigabyte Z170X G1 | 16GB Corsair DDR4 | Nvidia GTX970 | 2x 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD | Corsair H100i GTX | LG 29" Ultrawide 75hz monitor | NZXT H440 | EVGA Supernova 850W G2 | Corsair Strafe RGB Mech keyboard | Logitech G602 wireless  | Logitech Z5500 5.1

FarCry2 AMD hotfix and new catalyst version released, prior to this 4870X2 runs at 4870 single card spec, well now:


4870 faster than GTX 260 216 on 22" inch resolution, or heck, performs much the same i guess

MSI X58 Eclipse

MSI has dropped the circu-pipe (roller coaster theme) heatsink design and Crayola colors for a more traditional cooling system complimented by a very sharp looking blue/black color palette. In fact, the layout of the X58 Eclipse is one of the best we have seen in a long time with all ports and slots easily accessed.

We are not crazy about the X58 heatsink design as it resembles a small coffin when viewed up close. MSI is not going to change the design this late in the game but we should see a nice black plate attached to the top of it to match the ICH10R and MOSFET heatsinks before retail shipment. At least we hope...

The board features MSI's DrMOS MOSFET + Driver IC 6-phase power source design. In addition to DrMOS, there is a healthy smattering of solid aluminum capped capacitors, Hi-C capacitors around the CPU area, sealed ferrite chokes, and the PMWs are powered by the Intersil ISL6336.

Audio is provided by a PCIe x1 based Creative X-FI audio controller on a breakout card. While not the latest X-FI chipset from Creative, this one still supports EAX 5.0, provides 8-channel output, is spec'd at 100dB SNR with 24-bit / 96KHz capability. A welcome change from the Realtek ALC-888/885 product family.

Also included is power, reset, and DLED2 on/off switches. MSI is providing a dip-switch for changing the base clock speeds to 133, 166, or 200 MHz at POST time. The board also features several LED status indicators for everything from standby mode to QPI phase status.




MSI has provided a very good PCI/PCI Express slot layout. The Eclipse features three PCIe 2.0 x16 slots (two x16 and one x4 electrical), two PCIe x1 slots and two PCI slots.

This board features extensive storage options. We get a total of ten SATA and two eSATA ports. The SATA ports are provided by the Intel ICH10R (six - black - RAID 0,1,5,10) and a pair of JMicron JMB322 chipsets (four - blue - RAID 0,1, JBOD). A JMicron JMB363 provides IDE support and the two eSATA (RAID 0,1) ports. IEEE 1394a support is provided by the VIA VT6308P.

The I/O panel features eight of the available twelve USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1394a port, two eSATA ports, two RJ-45 (Realtek 8111C) PCIe Gigabit ports, PS/2 keyboard/mouse ports, and a long overdue clear CMOS button.

this would be my upgrade next year!!! hehe. :silly:
