  2. how about you change the gpu to a 5850. yes, you will go a little over budget, but it has around the same performance as the 5770 crossfired and has more potential crossfireing.

    If he had a monitor with a rez that needed a HD 5850, I could see trying to fit one in.
  4. Thanks a bunch guys but ive made my mind up, I got my budget raised to 1200 dollars.... hahahhah im really happy im getting this new rig now. Its a 480gtx rig ,COOLER MASTER HAF 922,EVGA 015-P3-1482-AR GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) SuperClocked,
    KINGWIN Lazer LZ-1000 1000W Modular 80 PLUS BRONZE
    G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
    ASUS SABERTOOTH 55i LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX
    Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W
    Cooler Master Intel Core i5 compatible Hyper TX3
    Factoring all these parts in its at about 1250 dollars with tax and everything.
    If you guys have any comments please add them and thanks for the replys.
  5. All these parts are very pretty, but you realise almost entirely redundant with your monitor?

    If you are getting that kind of power you need a 1920 x 1080 monitor, so a nice 24 inch for around $200.

    Dropping to a 5870 ($150 cheaper than the superclocked GTX) and reducing the PSU to 750W would get you most the way there.

    Also, for a 'superclocked' card it doesn't look very clocked
  6. even if you want to stick with the gtx480 and sli you still wouldnt need a 1kw power supply. under furmark 2 gtx480s use 600w, alot less than a kw.

    Having a GTX480 at that resolution is like always driving your new lambo through a school zone in front of a cop...

    You really should update the monitor, get the HD5870, ATI is winning the GPU battle now anyway, lower the PSU to a Corsair 750TX (supports HD5870 xfire), and get a nice 23" 1080P monitor.

    you mean a gtx480 :D and for the monitor you can get the samsung 2343bwx. its currently out of stock at newegg, but im in canada and can still get it cheap :P
    but the resolution on this monitor is so high, at 2048X1152.
  9. Yea sorry heh

    For a 22 " monitor if its a rez of 1680x1050 save some money and go with the GTX 470 and a Corsair 750W PSU will be enough to Sli them.
