Antec cases are no way overpriced for the quality they offer.. The 902 is a real darling case especially with gamers so good choice on that.. You wont find an EVGA 5850 as they are only NVIDIA manufacturers.. Since you have access to newegg, you can look out for combo deals which are generally good for some saving.. ares has got some nice options lined up for you..
Yeah is the integrated gpu supposed to enhance your high end cards performance or does it just act as a backup gpu when and if your card fries or both? I may just get a cheapo mobo and cpu for now if the am3r2 will be that much better.
I just realized the new nvidia's have direct x 11. I don't however like that they use much more power and are known for their not so great cooling.
Also currently I have a 512mb 9800gtx that is bigger than my forearm and requires 2 6 pin power.
physx and added 10fps or so are almost worth it thou....what you guys think? Should I just get a 5850?
can anyone link me 2 a decent 6gb/s HD? I have an older sata and wouldn't mind spending bux on another.
just cuz it has 2 gigs doesnt make it better, the memory doesnt directly affect performace unless u either have a more powerful card or very high resolutions. i would either get that 5850, or a good 5870, depending on the games you play.
