Runs fine with stock cooler. Drop the cost of the coolers could get u better cards like two 8800GTS 512. Matteh11 May 5, 2008 9:55:18 PM I didn't think of that btw, what make of mobo would you say is best? would you go with the cheapest or? Related resources Rate my build !

Get the answer bpogdowz May 5, 2008 10:02:39 PM 750i(2 way SLI capable, 3.6Ghz max OC), 780i (2 way SLI capable & 3-way SLI capable 3.6Ghz max OC) 790i (2 way SLI capable, 3-way SLI capable, DDR3 RAM only, & better max OC due to 1600FSB capability(for 4Ghz OC) Matteh11 May 5, 2008 10:10:32 PM So the 750i is the best option for me, as I have no plans to go 3-way SLI. What mobo manufacturer would you say go with, the choice in Asus or MSI? bpogdowz May 5, 2008 10:16:02 PM If those are the only two choices you have: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASUS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro-Star_International But I'm seeing an eVGA with 1066 standard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You either already own DDR2 800 or are avoiding 1066 for some reason? Asus is Taiwan and so is MSI. eVGA is made in the U.S.A.(better?) Matteh11 May 5, 2008 10:37:44 PM But I'm seeing an eVGA with 1066 standard - what do you mean? If i put an extra 10-20 into it then I could opt for either XFX or eVGA too, but is this really worth it, surely they are the same product but made differently? Matteh11 May 5, 2008 10:56:18 PM Cheers for the advice Andrius May 6, 2008 1:42:46 AM Stick with ASUS. Solid capacitors and a good reputation for producing things that last. Can't find your answer ?
