I have a case, PSU, and plenty of hard drives that will support expansion and have decided to upgrade and let my son have the guts out of this system. I have another case, with enough PSU wattage to just take out my MOBO and put it in there for him.
So I would need a CPU, MOBO, Graphics Card, Ram, and a decent heatsink/ fan
First we need to know what games you are planning to play, your entire rigs complete uses. Also, what's the brand power supply you already have and model?..you can't build a rig without knowing these first.
True. With that setup, you would need a pretty heffty PSU. Sapphire recommends at least a 550w PSU to run these cards in Crossfire (450w for a single card). So if your going to be OCing you should probably get something in the 600w-700w neigboorhood to ensure you got enough juice.
Games wise, this rigg would handle pretty much any game you throw at it. Crysis would give this a run for the money, but I think the 2 Radeons would handle it just fine!
My Bad guys. I play Americas Army online, I would like to play Crysis online, without any graphics card related lag, On the single player Demo I got around 15-18 fps. No AA or other filters on, everything on medium settings. I dont do alot of intense graphic design or anything
I have a Silverstone 560 watt PSU, which should be able to power all my needs. ( I Hope) I seen the combo deal at the egg for the processor and a 950 watt Rosewill PSU. Kind of leary of the Rosewill name in a PSU. Would lke to go that route to ensure If i SLI A video card I will have enough power in the future, but am leary. Anyone with any knowledge of Rosewill in the PSU category's input appreciated
