Now you will notice that iv yet to pick a Graphics Card. Iv researched a bit into the newer Radeon lines along with the 5970 but im not sure as of what to pcik. Ill most likely be running a single card setup so if you have anything youd like to recommend id appreciate it. Along with anything i may want to switch up. Thanks

Im also looking at buying a gaming Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, headset and monitor. if you have any suggestions let me know. as for budget id say another 1k or so

Yeah this comps gonna be for practically only gaming. Money isnt really an issue tho the 5970 was a-bit overkill. So im guessing the next best thing is the 5870 then for a single GPU setup?

^Yup. A 5870 will be fine for a while. When needed, you can just CrossFire it.

Its still top of the line correct? Cause iv heard most people that get them do Xfire them, and suposivly its suposed to equal that of a new 5970 give or take a little

Two 5870s in CF will handily beat the 5970 (at least when it is not OC'ed). The 5970 has a lower stock clock.

^Yeah, and the 5970 is much more expensive. As drivers get better, the 2x5870 should scale better than the 5970.

Would the rest of my build support a CF config as it is? If so i might be able to purchase x2 5870 together, i think it would come out to around $900. And would it be worth it? Give me your thoughts Thanks

WD Blacks are decent too, but a bit pricey. If you can find a single 1TB Spinpoint F3, that should be a pretty decent all around solution.

Allright ill check into that, not liking what iv seen in that article so far 30-40% fail rate ughh. as for the Dual 5870s would it be worth it getting two at once for $873 shipping included
