Back!

Well yeah, I didn’t forget about the blog. Just that life was being harsh haha!

But yeah. I’m back to posting tech and nerdy stuff. About my PC build, some stuff has changed to the final thing, but still on the “edge”. I got a 550Ti back on december, I’ll try to replace it with either a couple of GTX 660 or a single GTX 660Ti (since it’s cheaper than the 670 and it’s “virtually” the same thing). Having a small debate between getting an i5 3570k OR get an i7 2600 I saw on offer for less than the 3570k price. But then again, the big question: Sacrifice overclock capabilities but get 4 hyperthreaded cores (8 “cores” total), or go with quad core and OC capabilites.

Still going with 8GB of RAM (1600, not gonna go grazy with anything beyond that speed) using a Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB kit, and my current dilema: I’m going for either Gigabyte, MSI or ASUS for my motherboard, but I’m still debating which one to get.

On the Gigabyte side, one of my options is the GA-Z77X-D3H, decent entry/mid level ATX motherboard, SLI support and a good color scheme (blue/black). On the other hand, for literally no price difference, is the G1.Sniper M3. For a m-ATX, you get an onboard Creative sound card with enough power to boost your headphones to their max, net stability (sadly, not the old BIGFOOT killer NIC they used to implement on the old X58 G1 motherboards), and the best SLI config for a m-ATX board: the 2nd GPU is not placed on the 3rd slot, but the 4th.

On the MSI side, the Z77A-G45. This could be useful for a single card config (660Ti). And on ASUS side, the P8Z77-V LX.

But well, time will tell which one will be the best one for my build.
