CoP is a demanding game, it looks great for me, even with the settings not being set at max. What do you mean high end machines, like crossfire/sli setups or dx11 ready cards?

Out of interest, what graphics hardware (i.e. screen(s)) will you be playing on, and at what (total) resolution?

An SLI setup of that power is massive overkill for most screen setups and resolutions, and will cause problems with drivers, heat, noise and cost more to buy and run. You may well be better off buying a single high-end card (I'd suggest waiting until the new Radeon HD 69xx series comes out in November and see how they are and what happens to prices) that can potentially be SLI/Xfired later.

I will be playing at 1920 X 1080 and the screen will be the Samsung PX2370. This is my first Gaming PC so I am a little in the dark about some stuff. I have read that the GTX 470s run hot. the other setup I am looking at is 2X HIS Radeon HD 6870. I really want to run Crysis 2 maxed out when it comes out (that is if it doesn't have invasive DRM.) Would I be better off waiting for the 69XX?

i like the24" dell im using its 1900x1200 i use a 5870 with it
but i would wait for the new amd 69xx check out the reviews first
o and the newish WD VelociRaptor 600GB 10,000rpm SATA 6Gbps Hard Drive i think is much better

thanks. I was leaning towards a velociraptor. I think I will open up a new thread regarding the videocard and monitor.
