1366 keeper of the faith

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all! New member, thought I’d start a build log of my current PC and keep it running for future upgrades 

 

current specs are:

 

i7 920 C0 (yeh the crap one) 

GA-X58 UD3R rev2.0 

6gb Super Talent RAM

GTX460 1gb graphics card 

there’s an SSD but not with the OS on

Corsair cx650 PSU

corsair case 

custom liquid cooling setup 

 

my plans for this are actually to stay with 1366 as money is a factor and push what I have to it’s absolute limit before I really need to splash out for something more serious. 

 

Ive been looking at i7 975 processors  and maybe a gtx1050ti? 

 

Ive been out of the loop for so long I don’t even know what’s current. 

 

Thanks all!

pick up a used X5650 and overclock instead. an RX 480/580 is a good option if you're fine with buying it used.

you should probably be looking at the xeons instead of the I7s and the 1050TI isnt really a good deal new a used 570 or 580 is a much better deal.

 

there are quite a few X58 enthusiasts on the forum as i recall, its a cool platform that still performs well today


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
