Re: New Mac tower build

The equipment on the tonymac site is a year old. Sandybridge and not Ivybridge CPUs, Z68 and not Z77, HD 6xxx and not HD 7xxx, etc. I'd look for a Hackintosh site with newer info. Do you have a $ budget in mind for this build? Is this a hobby or a profession for your cousin? While the $300 cheapest...

Re: New Mac tower build

Hello Tonymac is the place to start.... regarding hardware and the rest, they will guide you the whole way... about the 6 core, SandyE are not fully compatible yet with lion, so you are going to have to work around it alot... my sugestion is going with a 2500k or 2700k, a gigabyte z77 or h77 as you ...

Re: Recommendations for a good 16:10 aspect gaming monitor?

Re: Silent GTX580?

Truth be told, I don't think you will find a "silent" GTX580... the 580 is quiet with the default cooler, can you make it more quiet? probably, but its a high end card, so it does get hot... I have one, and its quiet when not gaming, but you can hear it whir as soon as you start playing games or str...

Re: Top vents, even on SPCR-recommended cases?

I will have to agree with tim... I have one of the worst case to cool (wavemaster) but since I am in love with that case, I haven't let it go... so since I know I cant fit in that case a dual 580 in sli and a i7 980x without sounding it like turbine, I prefer going silent and use components that hav...
