Even Match Computer Build for saleFollow

I read the sticky for the Computer Building Guide and built the PC that was in the Even Match category. This build came from an article on Tom's Hardware. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/overclock-cpu-gpu,2655.html

Not sure if this is against the rules, but I see people linking products, asking for help with computer builds, and suggesting and linking parts all of the time, so I wanted to give it a try.

Runs the beta great, and maybe I could save someone the hassle of building a computer if they aren't very knowledgeable in the area of computer parts. College starts for me soon so I wont have more time to play it, want it to go to a good home.

I'm not doing any transactions through the allakhazam forums, only providing a link, as I've seen in countless posts for other computer parts.

Here are the screen shots of the benchmark tests.

Lowered price a little bit. Not looking to make a profit, just to break even. I didn't know I would be short on free time when I built it.

Still up for anyone who wants to grab it before final fantasy gets distributed at stores.

Your e-bay listing says it was built this week, but you've been running the add for more than 2. Might want to adjust that.

Also, tell me the bench scores on FFXIV, high and low. Just curious to compare to my 955BE overclocked to 3.965ghz(and I'd like to know what those 2 5830s are benching in xfire).

Additionally, your psu is too low for this system. Within a month or two, it'll start crashing from psu abuse.

**** and I thought I was doing well overclocking my 3.2Ghz processor to 4.2Ghz (which requires liquid cooling as it is running with my 2 gpus generating massive heat). How did you clock your processor up to 9.65Ghz - thats some crazy power!!!!!!! :-)

I guess anandtech doesn't know what they're talking about because its the exact PSU they recommend for this system.

A 650 is fine.

Does the graphic card support HDMI?

Yup

The minimum suggested for a single 5830 is 500W and for crossfire it's 600W so that does cover it. Most would probably rather go 1-200W higher than the minimum just to be safe though...

I'd like to see some non-photoshop'd screen shots of that.

I'll post some screen shots of the benchmark in a little bit no problem. Any other requests or questions I'll gladly help out with. Thanks again for looking.

Aside from the fact he shouldn't even be posting this, 650W is enough for that system. The 5830 draws 100W on average. Source. Hard drives, optical drives, CPUs all together typically draw 200-300W, even high end components.

Your load times are slow on that PC, from the screenshots.

And I don't think you're allowed to sell stuff via Zam's forums, but I could be wrong.
