  1. There are two ways, This is for calculating how much is being pulled out of a wall at any given time. A better way to make sure all your parts are happy is to Put your parts into PcPartPicker and it will give you a good estimated wattage.
  2. Your motherboard supports 2x SLI, it has two full speed 16x slots and one 8x PCIe 3.0 slots. Both cards will pull a combined total of ~460 Watts. I don't know what the rest of your system pulls, But you're probably in the Danger Zone. Now you MAY have to factor in getting higher Watt PSU. Assuming you need a new PSU, this is your option. Or get a better single GPU and not upgrade PSUs.
  3. Make sure you have enough power form your PSU to keep that card happy or you are going to have a bad time, You aquire another 770, insert it into your motherboard and mount it to the case, hook up the power to it, Attach the SLI connector, and then start adjusting drivers and settings. For reference, what motherboard are you using? What PSU do you use?
  4. Lets not turn this into a flame war, In saying that, i have no idea why anyone would not get an android based tablet. The Surface 2 is that tiny glimpse into the after PC market, Too bad Microsoft has really bad marketing. I have nothing nice to say about the apple alternatives so in order to not egg on a flame war, i wont say anything about them. OP, grab a cheap Android based tablet.
  5. I do not think the price is worth the performance gain. I personally could not justify investing into my old system (Core 2 Quad), when i could save up some funds to acquire a newer computer with a longer useful lifetime.
  6. If i may ask what CPU are you shoving into this thing?, This should suffice for most games. Its Q1, next month we will see some of the Nividia GTX 8XX news being released, Honestly wait for the Nividia GTX 8XX cards to comes out and then shop for a GPU. The Nividia GTX 6XX cards will drop in price dramatically and the GTX 7XX cards will go down as well. AMD may try to cut prices to draw people in so keep a look on the R9 Series of Cards. The GTX 660 can run a lot of games at max settings, I have one in my rig. The only game that gave me trouble was Metro Last Light.
  7. How does this motherboard look? Z77 so the Chipset can handle anything you throw at it, and you can tinker with anything you want. 2 PCIE 3.0 slots, 16x speed for single card 8x for dual cards. 1 PCIE 2.0 in 4x I do not think there are any cards that use up all the bandwidth of a full 16x speed PCIe 2.0 Slot, you may see a small increase in performance by switching to a full speed PCIe 3.0 Motherboard. Is it really the GPU or is it just a dislike of your current Mobo? That GTX 770 should handle nearly anything you throw at it.
  8. For rendering, if you can get your hands on one of these. I would grab one of them, Plenty of V ram for anything you throw at it. Its also more than enough for gaming. If you cant get you hands on one of them, grab a R9 280X 3GB of V ram should be more than enough for rendering and it is just as powerful as a GTX 770 when gaming. If you can find a R9 290 on sale somewhere and you grab a NZXT Kraken G10. The G10 allows you to mount a CPU cooler to your GPU, This kind of system is enough to keep a R9 290(or the 280X) happy and col. The R9 290 has enough Vram to render large projects and plays any game you throw at it, if you have the right hookups eyefinity should be easy with the new drivers. The drivers are a whole new story, I am not sure if AMD has released their new drivers for Linux or not. If they have then you are golden with eyefinity and performance fixes. If they havent im not sure how far Nividia has gotten with Linux, last i heard they didn't seem to worry about Linux users.
  9. It will take some saving, but it will be worth every penny. What GPU are you using?
  10. Do you have a list of parts that you are going to reuse for this build? Do you have a hard drive you are going to reuse? I assume new CPU and mobo? I have the Corsair C70 in black, its a pretty nice case. Very well made and comes stock with plenty of fans. The clamps to open the side doors are a very nice feature, if i ever get another case it will have to have them. As far as assembling a computer there are some video tutorials in the OP that can point you in the right direction, the guideline is as long as you can operate a screwdriver and read an instruction booklet you can put a computer together.
  11. Got a budget? How about A Nice Form to fill out if you want help from someone with planning a build. When trying to recommend a build to you, there's some information that's extremely helpful for us to know. If you could answer these few short questions, we'd be happy to help! What are you planning to do with this computer? Please be as specific as possible. What is your budget? Does this include a copy of Windows? Does this include peripherals (a keyboard, monitor, mouse, speakers, etc.)? Are you from the United States or a different country? Are you ordering from your own country or from across borders? Wherever you may be from, does the store that you are planning to order from have a website? It's okay if it isn't in English, we can manage. If you are from the United States, do you live nearby a Microcenter? Do you have any specific requests with the build? Do you plan on overclocking? If yes, do you have a specific goal in mind? Would you prefer the build to be particularly small? Would you prefer the build to be particularly quiet? In general, do you prefer this to be a computer that you can spend money on now and let it rest, or a box built for continuous upgrading? Do you ever plan on utilizing NVIDIA's SLI or AMD's CrossfireX technologies? These features, with a compatible motherboard, allow a user to link multiple identical graphic cards together for added performance. In real world terms, this lets you buy a second identical graphics card down the line as a relatively cheap and easy way to gain a fairly large boost in performance. However, this requires buying a SLI/CFX compatible motherboard and PSU now, which may result in slightly higher initial cost. (OPTIONAL) Have you already looked at or considered any parts (it's okay if you haven't)? If so, please list your top 1-2 choices for each category. If you've only picked out a few of the below, just list those. CPU Motherboard RAM Graphics Card Power Supply Case Hard Drive Solid State Drive (optional) Mouse (if necessary) Keyboard (if necessary) Monitor (if necessary) Speakers/Headset (if necessary) Once again, thank you in advance for taking the time to answer these.
  12. The BIOS, in this case UEFI or the ASUS boards is pretty easy to navigate and even lets you use a Mouse. The ram can easily go to 1866, so if you need it to be faster it can be. Mushkin makes good stuff, that SSD is fine, Plenty of capacity for a handful of games on top of your Operating System. If the caviar Blue gives you troubles, WD has a great warranty service send it in and they will make it right. If you need help with thermal paste you can look in the OP of this thread and it has a lot of Videos that will show you what to do.
  13. The SSD will make it load a little faster, if you can overclock your ram(Really simple to do), 1866 should be fine, the faster ram will make everything feel snappier on that AMD system. The 6300 should be more than enough to keep the finicky mistress that is KSP happy, I have a laptop with a dual core i5 running about that same speed KSP is nearly unplayable, I tried it out for some giggles when i bought it. What Ram and motherboard are you getting specifically? The laptop versus your rig will be a night and day difference in performance, trust me. Don't get worked up about speed and number of cores, The processor in your laptop is probably soldered into the board. its a mobile processor, all its really men't to do is surf the web and some word processing.
  14. Will you be doing any Gaming?, or just straight rendering? If all your going to do is rendering grab a firepro off this list, if not, look at the R9 series of GPUs.
  15. I have played with the Tegra that Nividia put into the ASUS Nexus tablet, Its a quick little chip. Tegra is a cool project i would love to see how this is implemented into the market, but honestly I want a Haswell Tablet. A Haswell Powered Andriod Tablet, preferably Nexus by Google, and manufactured by ASUS. That would be a cool gadget to have. Or a Surface 2, bridging the gap between Tablets and Laptops one Tech Cycle at a time.
  16. What specificly are you looking at doing that is OpenCL?, Bit/Litecoin minning?, Engineering Programs?
  17. How does this list look? 4570 is a respectable chip, plenty of power for gaming. Stock CPU cooler is plenty for a Haswell chip that isn't being overclocked. That ram is pretty cheap right now so i would grab it, The fins aren't tall so it will clear most of the larger CPU coolers on the market if you add one later. The speed wont be very noticeable so you can find cheaper but bang for buck i would grab it. Motherboard is very good, the H87 chipset has plenty of features, ASUS boards are top notch its what i would use. WD Caviar Black, Plenty fast for loading games top notch quality. I have Day Z on mine and its okay. An SSD doesn't make it load any faster right now so i wouldn't bother with one at your price point. The bread and butter, a GTX 770. Plenty for Day z and just about any other game you throw at it. The 300R is a pretty good starting case, it has cable routing holes so you can make the inside nice and tidy. Corsair has great quality. The CX750M is a little overkill for your system when you are starting out, but its an okay investment to make if you start adding upgrades. I wouldn't bother with Windows 8, I would grab Windows 7. Thats me, change it if you want. I could make an AMD build if you want, let me know.

  19. Have you tried a different Sata Port? Is the cable good?
  20. Good Eye, Tis' the season for reboots.
  21. It depends on which cards are we talking here?, Nividia Cards or AMD cards, The AMD chips crossfire different the how Nividia Cards do SLI. I would suggest reading into it more on your own. Certian AMD cards can crossfire outside their model range for example a Rhadeon HD 7970 and a R9 280X can both crossfire and a R9 280X can crossfire with another R9 280X. SLI on the other hand has to be the same model of card, for example a GTX 660 can SLI with another GTX 660. a GTX 660 however will not SLI with a GTX 680.
  22. As the expression goes, "make hay while the sun shines". Take everything important off and order a new one.
  23. I built my rig slowly over time, There will always be a risk of DOA items even if you go into a store and grab all the parts. The best way IMHO to avoid DOA items is to read up on the parts your buying and see how reliable they are and to what standards the manufacturers use for quality control and what there margins are like. If you have a current desktop you can plug your parts in and see if they work. My rig had only one snag and that was the WD Caviar Blue arrived Dead, so dead it was making my SSD takes nearly 30 mins to restart. I returned it to WD and they sent me a brand new Caviar Black to replace it. Companies usually are good about their returns and sending out a new/refurbished unit.
  24. I changed the CPU on your list, the other parts seem pretty good and is a heck of a good price for all that. The FX-6300 is plenty good, i wouldn't grab an FX-83XX chip unless you are going to do some productivity. The gains from going to intel in KSP are not IMHO worth the extra cost associated with getting an intel build. That 6300 is more than enough for modern gaming, Don't worry so much about "optimizations" CPU performance in this day and age is Crazy, any modern Chip is going to be enough to play games. GPUs are currently the more pertinent in build decisions than AMD or Intel Chips. That aside, the GTX 760 is pretty darn good. The ACX cooler is pretty good i prefer the ASUS Coolers but EVGA is a great manufacturer as well. an SSD will make everything feel faster, imho its not worth trading an SSD for an intel chip. I have heard great things about that Adata Ram, The Samsung EVO's are great, Seagate is a good manufacturer.
