  1. Depending on what resolution you play your games at, I would take a look at a 8800gt or 8800gts. If you are not going to overclock, then I would drop the Scythe Mugen and stick with the stock one. And I have never heard of that power supply before. Other than that, looks very good.
  2. Sooo ehm i chose the gtx cause i thought on a high resolution with high aa and af it is supposed to be better i own a 22 inch widescreen and mostly play crysis ut3 and cod 4 in high resolution... and i bought the scythe mugen cause i will overclock the system... do u know a better power supply ???
  3. I would check out the CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX:

    But I would wait for someone else to add their opinion on that one.
  4. Not too sure on how good the Be Quiet! Straight Power series is, I'd go with something that people can verify the quality on like Corsair, PC Power and Cooling or an Antec Earthwatts or NeoHE. Other then that it looks good, the GTX is better at resolutions above 1680x1050 in general due to the extra memory and bandwidth.
  5. i want to cool the gtx is it possible with this cooler http://www.arctic-cooling.com/vga2.php?idx=147 cause it says it fits on the gts will it fit on the gtx as well???
  6. drop to the E8400... and get a gts... both your cpu and gpu are overpriced in terms of price/performance...
  7. the e8500 is in for overclocking it has the higher multi with the gtx does anybody know how much higher the performance in ther bigger resolutions is ??? and does anybody know a COOLEr for the 8800 gtx
