Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've got a Dell U2711 monitor that I will be using, but may decide to go with multiple monitors in the future (which I think would work well for ATI). However I've read Photoshop can benefit from Nvidia (but noise is also a concern).
^+1, if you're going to do three way CrossFireX/SLI then you'll want the SilverStone Raven RV02 which has a similar airflow design to the Fortress FT02 but it has eight expansion slots instead of the FT02's seven.
Okay, I'll bring the cooler down to the Noctua U12P and go with a GTX480.
I'm new to this, so I don't know what is meant by +1?
Regarding memory, if I go with 4GB sticks, should I be concerned about the latency compared with faster 2GB sticks?
Regarding the case, I'm not of fan of the flashy Raven case, but I'm curious about the expansion slots. Wouldn't I still be able to do a three way SLI with seven slots? Or would eight slots just give you more room to work within?
And as the graphics card...
1. You will not be able to do GTX 480 Tri-SLI with that PSU.
2. IMO its not worth it also...Dual GTX 480 would suffice...
3. Heat and power issues will be a major concern then...
