The 10tb hard drive is because I think I'd probably go through that easily. I have a 2tb hard drive just now and it's already full and use mostly external hard drives.
I know it might be overkill but if I'm investing in a system I'd rather it over perform than I waste £2000 or £3000 for a system barely better than my old one.
I know I can get a decent system for that price. But from my point of view it's just wasting money.
Most of the major system builders were showing off systems at the ces 2018 with liquid cooling. And i9 7980ex processors with 64gb or 128gb ddr4 memory.
I'm basically trying to build a system like or better than them with some modifications.
Hence why I'm asking the experts on here about their opinion or advice.
I’m basically looking for an acer Orion 9000 style configuration
I9 7980 ex processor
asus x299 motherboard
4 x 16gb cosair vengeance ddr4 memory with option of updating to 128gb
12gb nvidia titan xp graphics card
10tb seagate barracuda pro secondary hard drive
what primary ssd would be suitable as a systems drive
what case would be ideal for this set up?
Do i need any additional cooling? and what?
i know computer basics but a newbie at everything
so i would really appreciate all the help and advice anyone can offer please.
this will be an expensive system so want to be comfortable with all the parts and decisions first.
Also if you think i should use something different and why.
Anything else i should add? Was thinking of the titan v but was told it was not worth considering.
my previous computer was very unstable and though fast was noisy and had alot of the blue sceen of death
i appreciate your time and advice
hi everyone. well waiting for the new processors to come out before my next project.
last one didnt turn out as great as expected. Still have some freezing problems. though not alot now.
but in the mean time is the 9800gx2 cards i have in my system becoming obsolete?
i have 2 cards in my system and recently took one out as did not really see the difference.
should i be looking to buy a new card or just get new drivers for my card? apparently you can get physx ones ?
moneys never been an issue as long as i can justify to myself.
so is there anything worth shelling out money for? or any way to imrove performance on my current rig?
lol. cheers. not much help but thanks anyway
i think i'll just stick with my original choice of the 52" sony w4000
as no ones advised me about any better televisions out there. well untill the new x series in the sony bravia range comes out.
can anyone tell me whats the best lcd/plasma to go for?
im not worried about price
at the moment im leaning towards a sony 52" lcd tv. the w4000 series that has bravia engine 2 in it. its about £2000.00 from the sony centre. i would have gone for the x3500 series which has the 100mhz
just trying to figure out the best tv/monitor to go for if price was not an issue
dont know if this will help anyone
but previously i had problems with my computer freezing while running multi-media fils.
anyways i think my computers fine now.
all i had to do was update the bios
and then change the voltage in the bios for my memory to 1700
so basically ive got 8gb of corsairs dr3 memory and everything seems fine. been over a month now and still no problems.
though im getting mbored with my computer. so thinking of building a new one.
well still getting the same problem
this is what i was told
(((((( This is a known issue with GX2s in QuadSLI; this wasaddressed in the K-Lite Mega pack 3.90 ))))))))))
can anyone confirm this. im using that new codec pack that i was told to but after running a week okay its started freezing up again when playing multi-media files... just normally half way through the second episode or movie it will usually freeze
OKAY GUYS IVE GOT A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH MY SYSTEM
DONT KNOW IF ANYONES COME ACCROSS IT BEFORE OR KNOWS WHATS CAUSING IT?
BASICALLY SOMETIMES WHEN IM PLAYING MULTI MEDIA FILES THE COMPUTER FREEZES. I GET WEIRD COLOURS PLAYING ACROSS WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER AND EVERYTHING ELSE JUST FREEZES.
HAVE TO REBOOT THE SYSTEM FROM COMPUTER
I GOT TOLD THAT THIS WAS A KNOW ERROR WITH THE QUAD 9800GX2 AND THE CODECS
BY THE WAY IVE ALSO TRIED USING VLC
BUT FOUND OUT THE POWER SUPPLY WAS UNIVERSAL SO AUTOMATICALLY DETECTS AND ADJUSTS THE POWER INPUT AND OUTPUT
