  1. Dont use a "Green" hhd as your main - get a WD Black or SSD, then use a green for storage
  2. Instead of5850, Go for 5770 CrossFire
  3. For what you got the build is fine. Poster number 2 suggests 2 cards when you can only run 1. Also, the 5850 is 10 tons better than those 2 in Xfire. The numbers might be similar but the actual performance isn't.
    Can't comment on the drive because I never used one of those. Right now I get 500gb Samsungs for most machines.

    Really?
    Do you believe that?
    Go around and check samoe benchmarks before you post your so called opinions
  5. ONE.... if any of you chose to look, the mother board does NOT have 2 pci-e slots so he can only run ONE card. TWO:.... 2 5770 in xfire can get 1000fps for all I care. Turn on the AA and it's going to tank. The 5850 will give better PERFORMANCE than those 2 cards in xfire. Shove your benchmarks. Buy the cards and try it yourself.
  6. What do you suppose would happen to those numbers if guru ran their tests on hardware everybody else has ? Not i7 960's running at 3700+ and very fast memory.... you know, A motherboard and memory that costs more than the "average" hardware this guy is buying. And how far do you suppose that i7 960 throws things out of the "average" ? Completely different playing field. And since this guy is buying a single pci-e slot mother board what card do you think will give him better performance..... C'mon, you can say it.......
  7. how much more or less would u have to pay for this setup without monitor?
  8. im not tending to get 2 cards for crossfireX. i don't tend to overclock either
    i just don't know why u think the WD Green is bad for storage
    plus i have 2 questions:
    is my powersupply (600W) enough to operate my whole setup?
    will my monitor work with the HD5850 when an HDMI cable is connected? (note that i'll only use one monitor and one VGA connector which is the HDMI one and that i'll use windows 7 64 bit)
  9. The 600W PSU (if it is of a well-known company) will run a +$600 5970 fine
    Yes, you can use HDMI cable with 5850
    and
    who said anything about WD green storage is bad?
  10. hd 5850 will be a burn in my wallet. im thinking of hd 4890 instead
  11. If you are thinking of 4890
    Wait for a couple of weeks
    5830 HD is coming and is said to be in the class of 4890/275
    Adding DirectX11
  12. i thinki should pay more and get the hd 5850. which radeon manufacturer do u think is the best?
  13. I have a Sapphire card and had no issues at all
    XFX, MSI and Sapphire are good, not to mention the great one 'HIS'
  14. what do u think of powercolor?
  15. u think HIS is better than Sapphire?
  16. PowerCoolers cards are sometimes cheap, so its not a bad option

    No one is better in terms of performance
    All the difference is in their service

    for example

    XFX gives you Double LifeTime Warranty
    HIS usually packs a nice new game like DiRT 2
    and so on

    So
    Buy the cheapest one
