Lower noise (17,8 dbA compared to 30), less vibrations and the air flow is better (54 CFM from corsair h60 compared to 63CFM).imsoadude said:I doubt i could return any of it, i got the parts more than 30 days ago and im pretty sure all the places i got them from are 15-30 day return policy. but im sure eventually ill be doing another build so next time ill make sure i post first to make sure im getting good parts.
Also whats better about getting the nocual fan over the default h60 one?
Depends. Could you list the application that you will be working with? If the application can use the CUDA-cores then nvidia will have an advantage over the AMD cards. AMD has so called AMD apps that ensure that selected app work best with radeon cards.imsoadude said:Oh I ment CAD as Canadian dollar lol I didnt catch that till now itll be for gaming, video editing and converting, and just watching movies/tv. Should I still take the route of nvidia?
imsoadude said:Ok well the applications i've used so far are HandBrake, Photoshop, Need for speed underground 2, need for speed most wanted (2005), magic dvd ripper, vlc player watching 1080p/720p movies. at the moment thats about it. all the other programs dont have need for gpu
Also im still aiming for around the 100-150 range since ill probably have to buy a new power supply right?
Why should he mess around with molex adapters when he has a 6-pin connector on his PSU.Valentin N said:
In case he chooses to purchase the 7950 which will require one; he limited the gpu budget up to 150 as he thought he needs to invest the rest on the PSU but as he might not need to do that he can mess with the molex adaptor. Another reason might be to prepare in case he plans to buy another 7850, if he buy 7850.Tom172 said:Why should he mess around with molex adapters when he has a 6-pin connector on his PSU.Valentin N said:
Bare in mind one 6-opin is required for an AMD 7850. If you're looking at other Graphics cards then it may be a requirement to buy some adapters.
That's correct but you won't need any new psu; I even wonder if you use 100W and even i5/i7 system with a card like 7850 down draw more than 250W - (sweclockers's test rig and its energy consumption ). My recommendation is still to get the 7950 as 200$ and add the the molex adaptor, if possible (you will need to hurry if you want to take this special offer as it end on the 15 sep) otherwise 7850 or 7870.imsoadude said:So if im just running one 7850 then i should be fine for just the 6 pin but if i decide to add another one later on ill have to get the adapter or a new psu
