It's been a while since I posted anything regarding my computer. It's almost totally different than what it was in my last post. I just thought I would post an update. I'm too lazy to do any linking. You can just look it all up on Newegg or wherever.
Case: HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990FX
CPU: AMD FX-8150
CPU Cooler: Corsair H50
RAM: 8GB Corsair Dominator (4 x 2GB) DDR3 1333
Video Card 1: Sapphire Vapor-X 6870 1GB/256bit
Video Card 2: Sapphire 6870 1GB/256bit
PSU: Kingwin Lazer LZ-1000 Modular
NIC: D-Link DWA-556
Optical: Plextor PX-880SA-26
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Titanium
Main Drive: Patriot PS-100 64GB SSD
Secondary Drive 1: WD Caviar Black 640GB SATA II 7200RPM
Secondary Drive 2: (an old laptop HDD) 320GB 5400RPM
External Storage: WD MyBook 3.0 1TB
I benchmarked this on 3DMark '11 and got just over a 7100. The second 6870 bumped this score up from about 5300 if I remember right.
The FX-8150 only excels at multitasking and games which use more than one core. My next update to the system will most likely be a bunch of 120mm fans to replace the side and top 230mm fans (4 120s on the side and 2 on the top) for better air flow (gonna replace with multiples of the SilenX 74cfm/15dBA fan :D). Right now the sound card blocks half of the cooling fan on the second video card and my network adapter blocks a quarter of the fan on the primary video card. Bad :\ Asus didn't do a very good layout with the PCI/PCIe slots on the Sabertooth.
