Good thought Hanno - worlds first ice cream cooled PC - I like it :thumbup:

Nessie, how long before you can build it?

It's that time again :jester:

So after a bit poking round and chatting with Hanno about new PC's I've come up with the following so far:

Bundle, CPU, MB and RAM

SSHD x2 My current eco drives are just not my thing anymore and I've done my bit for the planet.

Extra 8gb Ram

GPU wise I'm going with Nvidia this time around so I'm undecided between a 770 or a 780

What do you all mighty space wizards think?

No Eve does not need a new PC.
And he definitely does not need a new PC faster than my new PC.

The Bundle would be my choice too, :thumbup:
but the SSHD not really :chin: , I did go for the full SSD Disk,
although being smaller in capacity, it out performs in speed.
I just copy the games I don't play to a slower older noisier heat generating 7200 rpm disk(althoud 5400rpm would be fine too)
and if I want to play the game again more often, I just copy it back to the SSD.
The 120Gb I have is not much, but for me it's sufficient, I would recommend the 240Gb with at least 450Mb/s read/write,
the speed doesn't do much price wise, but you gain much more pleasure out of it.

Not sure if you already need the extra 8Gb ram, it never hurts though :P

Looks really nice eve! If budget allows go for an SSD, and perhaps have a Sata 6 GB/s HDD also for general storage.

As for GPU, any 2GB 770 or 780 will be a pretty serious card I am sure. I read somewhere that unless you are running 2 large screens or more then going over 2GB wouldn't make a difference, but I am no expert :)

Whatever you get now will be superb compared to anything several years ago, such is the nature of the beast.

Enjoy :mrgreen:

The budget will allow for an SSD and I've got 1-2 months to think about it. So MB, RAM and CPU stay the same.

SSD 120gb

WD HDD 2GB

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770

Yep I was oohing and about adding a SSD for boot/current main game as well.

Sandisk one is slightly cheaper

http://www.dabs.com/products/sandisk-128gb-ultra-plus-sata-6gb-s-2-5--7mm-solid-state-drive-8HBN.html?refs=56350000&src=3

I know the corsair one is fractionally faster but you get an extra 8gb on the sandisk one and I don't think you would notice the difference in speed.
But I am technically inept so.

Don't forget for the SSD you may need a mounting kit - not sure which one you will need for your case, but these are good http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002 ... UTF8&psc=1, or http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003 ... UTF8&psc=1

Just occurred to me - what about power supply? Whilst the SSD will use next to nothing, the CPU and GPU will want POWAH!

That is something I would have over looked so :thanks: it's added to my wishlist, as for a power supply I'm still sitting on a 650W which is still enough to power both.
