BUDGET RANGE: 600-675ish

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Multitasking---- Recording and producing Music, gaming, audio, internet, applications (microsoft word etc...)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg or whatever has best deals....

PARTS PREFERENCES: I would like to have a system built around the Amd 720 Tri core or an amd Quad Core. My LCD monitor will be 23inchs

The sapphire card should run a bit cooler but if you arent going to OC the card that doesnt really matter, in which was the $5 less for the XFX and lifetime warranty would be better.

ya i really like that warranty...i may overclock in the future. But with either of these cards i don't think i will need to.


also does this motherboard support crossfire?

Nope, if you want crossfire you should go for a 790x or a 790GX board, and you would need to upgrade your power supply. Single cards should get you by on high settings for a long time so you wont really need it.
