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?

The 260 is better by a good margin - but unless you have an SLI board there is no room for upgrading. On the other hand if you only want 1 GPU card - then I would get the 260

Okay. Thank you. I will get the 260 then. My System is ready to be bought! :D
