Well heres my share op PC specs. I ordered it, and i wanna know what you think about it

ATX 9 Hundred Tower
Power 850 wcp
Intel i930
HDD 1 Terra
PGT Deluxe V2 Mainboard
6 giga DDR3 1333
ATI Radeon HD 5850

I think the Graphikcard is awsome, scored place 7 on a benchmark with all the other cards. So what do you think about it?

Looks very solid, not crazy powerful but looks like it will run XIV quite well.

Very similar to my new build, same case too, only complaint is the grill on the top fan likes to vibrate, cant tell if its just mine or if their all like it though. Im trying to find a solution to it.

Solid build. Very similar to what many people have been building. The HD is the only thing I would change personally. I like to keep 1 smaller drive for the OS, then a second large drive for storage and backups. Just a personal preference though.

I have no problems with vibration with the top fan on the Antec 900. I have mine running on high. Make sure it's securely attached.

mmolma,

Nice rig man -- congratz!

That should run just about anything for at least 2 years or more and should score you pretty high for XIV benchmark, even though I read it sometimes mis-reads systems. @_@

On another note...since you went so far with good gear, why not finish it off with a SSD drive?

40 gig $100 dollar version:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167025

80 gig $200 dollar version:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167027

I mean you don't have too, since pricing will drop on these a lot more over the next few years.... but if you want to cram a little bit more speed out of your rig SSD will do it. Set the SSD as your boot drive with win + FF on it. All your other apps can reside on the 1 TB drive.

Another note:
I might not OverClock the 930.... I've read reports where it's hit and miss for the 930 but at 2.8 Ghz-ish you should be be ok. I bet you could crank it up just a little to 3 or 3.4 Ghz and get away with it without much worry. Most of the over clocking can be done via the bios.

But really that's just nit picky stuff mmolma. Nice rig, well done and enjoy!

My Antec 902 dont seem to have fan noises either.. BUT i hate the layout of the fan wires.. I had lot of problems with the **** things hitting my top fan and click... taped it to the side of the box >.<.. Also one of the mobo seats wont ***** in cuz i guess it came stripped... I really wish I would have went with a full tower :/

I got a $34 cpu cooler (coolermaster) off amazon (cheaper than newegg) and bumped my 930 to 3.5 ghz. Temps only reaching 70C with prime95 maxing out CPU. I left it there for now, but I think its worth $34 to go from 2.8 to 3.5 ghz. Not to mention you get your ram clocked a little faster as well.

I have a 930 at 3.5 GHz as well, my Cooler Master Hyper 212 has me maxing at 66 under full load with Prime, I want to get an add on fan and a CPU fan splitter for an extra 15 so I can push/pull.

I found that FFXIV, At least the benchmark doesn’t like OC. After I OC my CPU, the sound got cut off a bit

Looks almost the same as my rig except I have Phenom II x 4 955.

I had no problems with the benchmark after OC. You may want to experiment a little and see if you can narrow down the issue. Could be the OC or something else. Let us know if you have any other problems.
