    NEVER get a rosewill PSU. They suck. THEY SUCK!
    Also, the case was the deal of the day either yesterday or the day before. You could've saved 10$. Go with Ssassan's rig. It'll do fine in Crysis but don't get a 4850x2 when you can get a 4890 (or GTX 275) for the same price. One GPU beats two smashed together in plastic casing. Good luck.
  5. the 4850x2 2gb should perform better then the 4890 or the gtx 275. Please prove me wrong.

    Both of those reviewer sites you posted are BS. When does a GTX 295 AND a 4870x2 lose to a GTX 285.
    The GTX 275=GTX 280= 4850x2. Gtx275=4890. Either would work.
