It's not bad per se, it's just the -1 from comparing it to the best possible solution.

Hi,

@ PersianBoy:

- 2 GPU (can be to slow for some games now, especially in Full-HD with some AntiAliasing
- 1 PSU: Just not the best one

Other than that, your system is pretty good!

7/10

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K
CPU-Cooling: Thermalright Archon (with 2x 140mm Bitfenix Fans)
Mainboard: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme (B3-Revision)
GPU: EVGA GTX 580 1536MB with Backplate
RAM: 4x4GB DDR3-1600 Corsair Vengeance
PSU: Seasonic X-660 660W
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 2000GB (Storage only for Pictures, Music, etc.)
SSD: Samsung SSD 830 256GB (OS, Most programs, important games, etc.)
Case: Fractal Design XL USB 3.0
Fans: Several Noiseblocker Fans (replaced the originals)
Periphery: QPAD-MK 85 (MX Red), Razer DeathAdder ReSpawn, Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro, 5.1 System by Teufel (Concept-E)

Hi,

Thanks.

Why should i take a faster HDD for my storage? Caviar Blacks are much more noisier. Which one would you recommend?

That's an 8.5 from me, Green drive for storing media, perhaps....but for storing games? Nope, it's got to be a better standard HDD, like WDC Black, Samsung SpinPoint, Hitachi Deskstar, and the like.....Green drive for external HDD, yes. I'd marked you down due to having a 1.5GB GTX580 (the 3GB version would rate higher), Green drive for storage (of games I assume since this is a game-centric forum) while OK, it's not ideal imho. Great mobo, Asus ROG boards are just kickbutt!

Thanks for the ratings.

I should have specified: The Green ist JUST for storaging non-Game Files. All my (current) games find easily place on the SSD.

GTX 580: I wanted to buy a GTX 680.. but since this should actually become the 670 i am going with the GK 110 later this year.

--CURRENT BENCHMARK RESULTS WITHOUT THE HD7970 IM WAITING FOR--

SiSoftware Sandra 64bit - http://www.sisoftware.eu/rank2011d/s...aa97a781f2cfff

Passmark Performance Test 7 64bit - http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/n...enchresult.jpg

Compare the Passmark result with this - http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html <--- My FX-8150 beats an I7-2700K by 127points ..keep in mind the I7-2700K is quad-core 3.5Ghz/3.9Ghz Turbo CPU with Hyperthreading = 8core
vs a TRUE 8-core FX-8150 CPU @ 3.6Ghz/4.3Ghz Turbo..
Im making a change to this because I did lots of testing while waiting for my "MSI R7970 Lightning Radeon HD7970 3GB GDDR5" and found that it barely outperforms my current crossfire HD6950's..

So instead I just bought: Crossfire "R7870 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC (core clock 1050mhz/mem clock 4800mhz)" they outperform a single HD7970 and outperform my crossfire HD6950's and they run cooler and use less power than my HD6950's.

Re-rate it please if you want..

Very nice! 2x HD7870 in CFX will kick some gaming butts. This is easily one of the most powerful gaming rigs here, I have the FX4100 @4.2ghz and it handles the games I've thrown at it with ease. So, with this revised spec, I'd rate you a 9.3, great rig btw.
