Re: 50k Upgrade Cum Scratch Build


The Storm Stryker - "White" really stands out in your room. And as with anything white, you gotta keep it clean - DAILY. Dust is easily visible every 24 hours.

The only thing I dislike about this cabinet (includes Trooper too) - the USB + Mic ports are on top - where over a period of time dust settles inside them, thus leading to poor-bad contact for the plugs. I am planning to cover them with a flap or something. Corsair should have positioned these at the sides.

Right...Quick clean wipe with a soft & dry cloth [just keep a cloth ONLY for your Cabinet + Monitor], which will take less than 3 minutes only. Do NOT use this cloth for other purposes

And Congrats on the Dell. You got it for a good price too. Connect it using either the DVI-D connector or HDMI & NEVER use the VGA [blue] cable.

Is there any warranty ? If yes, then its a good deal.

Re: 50k Upgrade Cum Scratch Build

i want to know if it will last for a year?(hd movies, 1080p for games) if yes, then i will buy it tomorrow, else i will go as i planned to continue with my hd 5670 and upgrade in a couple of months later on.

Re: 50k Upgrade Cum Scratch Build

Though 470 is a good card,I would advise you to stick to your 5670 for now and upgrade to a latest gen card when you have the cash.

The GTX 470 is way better than the 5670 - http://www.hwcompare.com/8642/geforc...adeon-hd-5670/ |
However, if this is a stop-gap solution then think again (the price is good). Which Brand is it ?

Re: 50k Upgrade Cum Scratch Build

i know it is far better than 5670.. but i want to know if it you power up my system for about a year or so? i will play hd movies and games(medium settings). i'm asking cause if will last for a year, its a good buy, else i will go for something good after some months. as i think, i wont get a good resale value for this.

about the brand, IIRC he didn't tell me that... actually i wasnt that much interested in the GPU that time so i didnt bother to listen carefully what he said

Yes, it will be loyal even after one. Not on high settings though I presume, but medium would be clean
This is a very good deal. If my exams wouldn't have been going on, I would have bought it instead

I would advice you not to use this site in future. The comparison is just on theoretical basis and no real life comparison.
Consulting benchmarks from anand, toms, 3dguru, bit-tech etc is the ideal option

Re: 50k Upgrade Cum Scratch Build

thanx alot.. will buy the gtx 470 in couple of days...

so monitor is done, GPU too done... next is cabinet... will search for used stryker else will go for the brand new one... i'm getting it for 12600 locally with side panel... lets see...

---------- Post added at 01:30 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:04 AM ----------

@terencefdes one more thing... the stryker has a matt finish. right?

also suppose, i accidently bruise it with something, so will it leave a mark? the last thing i want is a black mark on my pure white cabinet, i'm asking this cause i do change places alot.

Agreed... I had my doubts too as the analysis is very sketcky.

Errr... to me it appears "glossy & smooth" not like the roughness of a matt-finish.

Rest assured, guys abroad use this case very roughly - carry it for gaming competitions, etc. The build quality is great, so unless you have nails like Dracula or Frankenstein or want to tow it along like a suitcase ... I see no reason to fear
