My New System Build and a question about it Tags: Build Asus Hard Drives Systems Last response: May 17, 2009 9:40 PM in Systems Share rockstone1 May 17, 2009 9:36:17 PM This is my system that will be bought I already have the mobo, Hard Drive, and DVD and I plan to reuse them (mobo: M3A78 ASUS) Anyway, this is what I'm chosing: ASUS EAH4870 - Retail ($120) [Somehow] COOLMAX CU-700B 700W ($70) AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz ($190) NZXT LEXA ($110). My main question is this: the 512 mb ASUS EAH4870 seems like a steal, but for $10 more on Newegg (They are having some weird sale), I could get the 260 868 216 Core instead. Which is better?

On the other hand if you only want 1 GPU card - then I would get the 260 rockstone1 May 17, 2009 9:40:15 PM Okay. Thank you. I will get the 260 then. My System is ready to be bought!
