If there is a raiding harddrives book for dummies?. Thankyou for your time. gimme a ranking on this plz 1 - 10 for overall performance. if my math is right 2066.83.

If you planning the go with sandy bridge then thats good, because of the 1155 socket as your probably aware. But keep in mind intel are going to change the socket again in another 6 months. Buy some proper thermal compound for your heatsink, arctic silver is the best in my opinion. With your GPU, don't buy 2 at the same price, buy one now, and then buy one when the price on the next one drops, or you can even buy a better one later for the same price and still have 2 good cards.

Theres always going to be a new series or new graphics cards coming out. If you're happy with it go for it. You can always upgrade parts in a couple years when the new stuff coming out is going to be old.

This post is going to seem like a crap load of numbers but its worth reading, if you get bored easily skip to the last paragraph. Well i developed an upgrade plan which balances money and gaming, and feels more like "renting" hard ware if you get what i mean. Rather than blow 2k out the window in one shot it won't feel as bad and won't impact the interest you earn from your bank account as much if you spread the 2k over say 2 years for example. Here's my upgrade plan, of course its not fully tested :D. Case - Every 3-6 years depending on changing motherboard compatibility PSU - Every 5 years your not getting your monies worth otherwise GPU - Every 1-2 years, buying second best, depending on market change. CPU - Every 2.5 years, usually replacing at the start of the fiscal year. Motherboard - Every 2.5-5 years of course depending on how long the socket lasts. Fan - When needed, a fan should last you at least 3 years before you start seeing problems. Ram - When needed Ram can last up to 3 years before you start seeing compatibility problems often you can transfer ram between mobo's Hard drive - When needed, usually when you run out of space. Ofcourse you need to start with good components that will upgrade relatively well.(not a dell) Year 1 - Replace nothing Year 2 - GPU upgrade($500 Budget) Year 3 - CPU and motherboard if necessary($500 budget + left over from yr 2) Year 4 - GPU and RAM($500 Budget + left over from yr 3) Year 5 - PSU CPU and motherboard if necessary($600 Budget + left over from yr 4) Year 6 - Case upgrade and GPU ($600 budget + left over from year 5) And then you go back to year 1. Now over 6 years you've spent a total of $2700, that may seem like alot in one go but here's the numbers. The interest at standard rate's of 4% p.a(e.g) on bank accounts which you kept this $2700. and taking away the money you spend on parts each year assuming you spend the entire budget for that year. (P) = Base amount (I) = Interest (A) = Initial bank amount (D) = Deductions (B) = Final bank amount Year no - (P) + (I) = (A) - (D) = (B) Year 1 - 2700 + 108 = 2808 - 0 = 2808 Year 2 - 2808 + 112 = 2920 - 500 = 2420 Year 3 - 2420 + 97 = 2517 - 500 = 2017 Year 4 - 2017 + 81 = 2098 - 500 = 1598 Year 5 - 1598 + 64 = 1662 - 600 = 1062 Year 6 - 1062 + 42 = 1104 - 600 = 504 [B][U]With this method you've saved $504 on a $2700 computer, bare minimum meaning you've only spent $2196 over a 6 year period. Thats just a dollar a day for a top of the range up to date PC.[/U][/B] Damn this turned out to be more like an advertisement for a freaking bank.... But, if you want to save money something like this is the way to go and you could save even more if you had more money in your account to start off with. In fact if you had a spare $70000 sitting in your bank account you wouldn't even have to pay anything, the interest would pay it for you. But of course this model doesent account for variation in interest rates but you can never really accurately predict what will happen over 6 years.

Ok maby dells was a bad example, Ill admit alien ware is much better than other dells, but most other dells are built with parts that are very difficult to upgrade and overclock.

My dad still games online with his 7 year old Dell XPS (a 3.0Ghz P4). Of course he only plays "Aces High". I wish DELL still had that kind of quality though. They use to make good hardy machines.

Man, people know you love it, nobody else really does. If you're not making money by advertising, please just give it up. By going Alienware, you basically throw out all of Thieving's math because any money you save you'd be wasting on the AW premium. For Dyaval, man you should just go with the 2500k and find a friend that doesn't live in the Boondocks to buy you one from microcenter and ship it. But otherwise it looks pretty good. Also for the SSD, I know I mentioned getting the Vertex2 but I am thinking now, you might as well roll with a Crucial C300 [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148348&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Solid+State+Disk-_-Crucial+Technology-_-20148348[/url] It's a bit more expensive but the only SATA3 6gb/s SSD out there on the market. If you are going all out, then you better go all out. Edit: nevermind, you don't have a SATAIII board. You should get one if you are future proofing. But up to you.

That comes out to a cool $2.5 mil.

Okay so for a mobo i think this one has everything that i want. [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131682&cm_re=p8p67_intel_p67-_-13-131-682-_-Product[/url] - 1155 chipset -supports the ram im gonna get -no oneboard video -its got usb 3.0 -its a atx fit. -i never knew that your mobo could affect your internet speed prior to a few days ago but this has High-Performance, High-Bandwidth Data Transfers with Legendary Intel Stability - on a different site it says it supports raid 0, crossfire, and firewire. if ther is something im missing or if there is a better one for the price can anyone tell me. if i lock the mobo in all i have left to decide on is possibly a diffirent heatsink. i had this in mind just because it looks bad ass.[url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=35-103-089&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Keywords=%28keywords%29&Page=1#scrollFullInfo[/url]

The speed as long as its Gigabit (which that mobo has) doesn't really change much. "high performance" network cards are worthless. The IEEE 1394a is firewire. That board does use EFI instead of the old BIOS which is nice. I like Zalman CPU coolers but Coolermaster is good as well.
