I'm also going for 4x1 GB 1333 Mhz ram. But what's best with this combo, for maximum gaming. OBS. Going with an mATX case. Asus ATI 5970? Or XFX 295 GTX?

But you need to overclock your cpu to 3.5ghz+ to fully utilize the cards power. Nysaan January 10, 2010 1:09:37 PM well, that shouldn't be a problem since the AMD 965 is on 3.4 ghz So it can't get that much warmer ? invisik a b U Graphics card January 10, 2010 1:31:43 PM ^ It shouldn't get much warmer providing you have good air flow. Try to push to 3.8ghz-4.2ghz if you can. 1898 January 10, 2010 1:34:15 PM Oh, should've read properly. A 965 and a 5970 in a mATX case? Does it actually fit? invisik a b U Graphics card January 10, 2010 1:41:28 PM ^ Oh snap i didn't see that. Good luck fitting the 5970 in a small case. Nysaan January 10, 2010 2:02:45 PM yes, it fits, according to the company who created it. Nysaan January 10, 2010 2:10:47 PM but okay, relized that it would be too much heat so i chose HAF 922 instead with a 850 Watts PSU and coolermasters V10. Good setup for OC? AMW1011 a b U Graphics card January 10, 2010 2:39:43 PM Drop the coolermaster v10 and get the Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer, Thermalright Ultra 120, or Xigmatek HDT-s1283 or -s1284. Then, yes you can overclock like hell. mpavao81 January 10, 2010 2:44:24 PM the 5970 is 12.25 inches, isnt that bigger than a mATX case lol.
