hello toms hardware. I just wanna thank you guys for the excellent advise you gave me on my last question. I did say i was gonna use this forum again so here is another post from me.
my brother would like to spend around 1200 -1350 $ max for a sexy gaming rig. Things he already has is a 24inch montior and a very nice antec case so those are excluded from this build. my brother doesnt care it its amd or intell, he just wants the biggest bang for the buck. his one concern is with graphics cards and if it worth getting a 5970 2gb in this build, and if so what are the chances ati is gonna release something new in the near future thus dropping the prices on a 5970 2gb hes had is eyes on. anyways newegg seem to be where my brother would like to shop from.
ty once again for always having quick and great responses to these questions.
ty for the quick reply admiral. now if my brother didnt want to go the 5970 2g route what other options are there out there for him if he would want 2 run 2 cards or even 1, and save himsefl a few bucks
If he wants 5970 level performance for cheaper, his only option is xfire 5850's. Just take Mad's build and use 2 of those instead. Overclock the 5850's a bit and they're basically the equivalent of a 5970.
