That's an idea, but later, now I'm exhausted, it took me two days, more than 15 hours to make the changes! I love the design of your case and it's components, I only see one thing that would make it look smarter: [link] When it has been released, you probably already had yours! Yeah, black is black, and it's the better looking!
Well, let´s say I have 150. What gfx card would you suggest me to buy? I need it for games and the stuff I´m presenting here on dA (mainly CS4 & Cinema 4D). It should have 512mb minimum! I actually own a Nvidia 8600 GT.
Hi mate Yeah, I'm fond of hardware! For the gfx card, which resolution do you use? The best pure performance I see at this price would be a XFX RADEON HD 4890 1GB DDR5 PCI-E 2.0 [link] (in Germany, it's a very contained price for such a powerfull card, to my mind). But, it's a noisy model, you still can change it's dissipator later. It depends on what you want of it. Otherwise, if you don't have a big screen with a very high resolution, and don't think you'll take one soonly, there are many models that are less expansive. If you're an nvidia fanboy, at 150€, there's nothing that can have such a performance at this price level. I think that this model at this price is a very good deal. A last tip: Don't care about the trademark of the graphic card, except for some modded models, they all use the default PCB and only change the sticker on it and make minor changes in the bundle. Don't hesitate to ask if you need some help
Don't hesitate to ask! Generally, I'm not a fan boy (lol except for Lian-li cases, Thermalright dissipators and Noctua fans lol). For choosing a GPU, I look at the tests, the benchmarks, and choose the best card at the price I want to pay. It can be a nvidia or an ati... 2 monitors with 1280x1024, it's ok, when you play, it's on only one screen. An HD 4670 would be enough for excellent graphics on a 1280x1024 screen, but I would take bigger cards for multi-screens with cs4 or HD editing (Nvidia is far better for exclusive HD encoding).
It's like any default ventirad for GPU, particularly ATI ones, it's very noisy when the fans are turning at their maximum. Although, I have a very low tolerance to noise, and everybody is considering things differently. Example: It can depend on the room where your PC is, it's ambiant noise, where the case is placed (you'll hear it more if it's close to your ears). Before using watercooling, I had a Scythe Musashi installed in the case [link] . It's two fans are regulated through a bracket installed in the back of the case, so it's very easy to use it, and can insure you it can be 100% silent, while staying more efficient than a default cooling system. There are many alternative solutions, and alternative designs of graphic cards purposed.
