  4. You would get better bang for buck with two GTX 460's 1gbs.
    A quality name brand 700-750watt will saffice for you.

    Case is all about what you like. I'm a fan of the Cooler Master HAF 922
  5. i have to say i lke the 5970 better then you don't have to xfire or sli

    but i would get the samsung spinpoint f3 instead of wdc
  6. with the video cards what brand should i go for? or are they all the same?
