  1. I assume you are planning on OC'ing the 6600. If that is true, you may want to look into a higher end CPU cooler. I'm not dead sure about how that cooler works, but there is better to be had for less money.
    Another thing is the 9600 GT's. You say you want to play Crysis, etc. at very high settings. I'm not too sure that the 9600 GT's are going to do that. Right now on newegg, I remember there being an 8800GTS G92 core for 150 after MIR. I think that dual 8800GTS will outperform the 9600's.
    The other thing I'm not too sure of is the case, may want another second opinion on that one.
  2. I can definitely help you out, but what's your budget maximum, and what resolution do you plan to be playing games at?
  3. ok first off budget......???

    second dual 9600gt's probably can't run Crysis at very even at 1280x1024.

    if thats your goal here is what i would recommend 2 4850's or one 4870 with an X38 or X48 motherboard. that would be the adding

    here is the good news there is no way the rig you have up there need a 1kwatt power supply save some money and get a good 750 watt like....


    these should be able to handle even 2 4870's which are much more power hungry

    hope this helps
  4. wait for the realease for 4870x2 :pt1cable:
  5. whats up with the 667 memory?
