  1. ^That is a very good setup...but go with the 750TX only if you are sure of adding one more 4870 in crossfire anytime soon...Else get the the cheaper Antec EA650...

    Here is a Faster CPU if you want...
    X4 940 + ASUS 4870 1GB

  2. yea, a little sluggish that 810. Go with the 940, or the x3 720.
  3. that looks like a great first build! much better than i did my first time....

    but i too agree with kevin1212 that the 810 is a bit slow for a quadcore. go with a 720x3 but if your budget allows it, go for a 940

    ok sweet, i will definitely get the 940 and 4870. I think it would be good to have the option of doing crossfire so i can keep playing advanced games in the future without having to buy a ton of new parts...

    What is a good board that will let me crossfire that is around the same price of 110ish? Or is the board i have now fine?
