More about ready final setup promise thumbs
  1. This video card should be comparable to your 4870, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814187050

    Your choice both will perform very semilar, but I like the 260 with 216 cores for 10$ less

    The motherboard supports crossfire and the PSU also has enough power and connectors for crossfire. I would stick with the 4870 1GB so you have the option of adding another card in crossfire later.

    Nice build! Pull the trigger! :)
  3. "Pull the trigger"?
    That might kill him :(

  5. Frankly, I have no clue about that card reader. I hope it supports whatever format your camcorder or camera uses.

    The rest is beautiful.
  6. Click the **** button already ! lol, have fun on the build, your good to go.
  7. DO NOT! forget your arctic silver 5 or arctic cooler MX-2 thermal compound

    wat the hell is that and wut does it do?

    havent clicked yet, waitin on NCIX sale... crossin my fingers to see if theres a cheaper gfx card and a decent monitor....
  9. you need a tiny drop of thermal compound between the processor and the heatsink . And I mean tiny . Its to ensure theres a good heat transfer .

    Thats a great build btw .

    can I borrow it?

  11. www.newegg.ca doesn't sell the thermal pastes...
    I would not make any changes to the build.

    1.Yes
    2.Yes
    3.Depending on resolution, yes
    4.Yes
    5.I don't think a $6000 computer will play games will in 6 years but yes it will still do MS Office and YouTube in 6 years
    6.Correct no compatibility issues

    You've obviously never applied thermal paste on a CPU before. Here's a guide:
