  2. Definately ^ +1.

    Shame it would cost £1000 in the UK....

    same cept maybe the gpu to a 4870x2 or 4850x2
  5. but im a gamer i mostly use big resolutions like 1900x1000 i will need a gpu that can support bit resolutions with full AA, so i dont know if a 4870 x2 would be better than that 285 SC edition.
  6. a 4870x2 is like one of the best cards out there regardless tho.

    Using an AMD x2 is gonna bottleneck just about any GPU you pick thats better then a 4870 1gb. So it doesnt make much of a difference.

    But longevity/future possibilities a 4870x2 is better then a 285 (unless you plan on gettin an i7) simply cuz SLI isnt stable unless on a x58 mobo. Crossfire is pretty great no matter what mobo so long as its Crossfire capable.
  7. no PSU incluede :( lol i will find one or suggest me one

    The PSU you have is good enough.

    actually its very easy to argue with .

    Ci7 isnt showing any advantages over a Pll 940 if you are gaming and have only a single gfx card . Ci7 is mostly slower than Pll in that situation .,2148-9.html

    Going Pll means
    cheaper cpu
    cheaper memory
    cheaper mb

    and a whole heap of cash left over for a stronger gfx card

    and higher fps
