Hey everyone. I'm getting my hands on a Atomic ATI 4890, and am planning a new computer around it. With a budget of around $1200 or so (not counting the vid card), what system parts do you recommend? Keep in mind I might Crossfire it eventually, later in the fall if I can get my hands on a second one. So an eye toward expansion would be nice.
This computer will predominately be used for gaming.
I have a 24" Dell monitor that I will be carrying over
I plan on using Windows 7 RC 64 bit
I've been told there is no true difference between DDR2 and DDR3, is this the case?
What processor/MB combo should I go for and how do I figure out how much wattage I need in total for the tower?
