I would hold off on the 6 core CPU to you need one and just get a HD 5970 and xfire latter if you like
I've been watching for the 5970's but there is none to be found. Has anyone seen any for sale lately?
Don't do it, and send me the money that you don't know in what spend.
LOL, Not really the money just got that itch.
What do you need to do that, right now, you cannot? Or are you upgrading just because you can?
Nothing wrong with that, mind you, as long as you are being honest with yourself.
More because i have an itch to do more with my system. Started the build around july last year and just want to stay ahead.
Being honest with myself?
I do alot of video editing and encoding and some photo work.
I had ordered a new mip's ram cooler that is being plated by RRTech and the cpu / chipset block are already plated. Is it worth spending more on the 4890's and have the waterblocks plated to match? (3X 4890's = $250.00 plated)
