Does anyone see any compatibility issues or any issues at all with these components? Also I wasn't sure if I really needed a different heatsink, but I ordered one just to be on the safe side. Should I use it, or just the cooling fan that comes with the CPU?
Any perspective or help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
First a single 4850 or GTS250 is enough to play everything on high at that resolution http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Second you cannot SLI on an AMD chipset, they only support CF making 2 9800GTXs a waste of money as you CANT use them
Third, only dual GTX285s require an 850 watt PSU, for a single card a 550VX is plenty, for 2 4850s a 650TX is plenty but you will be hitting your cpu bottleneck hard at that resolution
