howdy guys long time no see, well anyways too the point I recently changed my case and had a little accendent while carrying the PC downstairs (guess) everything seems fine however by runinig memtest seagate tools OCCT and prime. however one of my HD4870 fails OCCT, in crossfire I noticed they all ways got errors but 16k come on, anyways I tried the cards singly and yeah one is defo fualty and it shows under load.
So I going to upgrade my GPUs while i m at it but what should I get ?
my perfered supplier is OCuk as they are the cheapest by far on the GPUs
I have so far got the
ASUS tri fan X2
GTX295 (the cheapest one)
and a asus GTX285
I m consdering Nvida as well as ATI and i don't want to go above £350-360 as i want crossfire (AMD) or just a single top end Nvida card. I don't want to hear overkill cos its not true its more "wasting" the card
So heres my specs currently
Q9550 @3.8Ghz volts 1.25 with vdrop enabled
X48 rampage formular
ocz REAPERS 4Gb 1066Mhz (900 currnetly as I got no idea how to overclock them )
3 seaagte HDDs 2x 250Gb and one 500Gb now single HD4870 512
SAMSUNG t240 redrose I game at 1920x1080 or even higher with 4x AA thats why a single HD4870 is not enough.
powersupply tagan/abs 1100watt.
i don't care about DX11 as like DX10.1 it never come to nothing, what I do care about is gaming nice and smooth with eye caddies on
You could get the GTX285. if you want there , "high end" card. kinda like how ATI's 4890 is "high end" I never saw much improvement. Butthe GTX 285 should be fine but I would recommend SLI'ing to GTX260's as they could potentially out preform a GTX295.
