Last check before purchasing!

Hi all. First off, I've been very impressed with the feedback on Tom's! Thanks all.

This is the gaming build I have come up with using some advice given here. Please let me know any last second thoughts before I purchase. I am mainly concerned with parts compatibility at this point. The total comes to $844 after MAR and combos.

I have heard that the 5870 is a real long video card. Can anyone confirm that this will fit nicely inside the case listed above?

Thanks in advance

  1. 1) Do you plan to Crossfire down the road? The motherboard doesn't Crossfire at recommended bandwidth (IMO)

    2) Your case will fit the 5870 fine. The 5870 is a larger card but not at the 5970 level!

    3) Your overall setup is good though!! I take it :)
  2. Hello BeeJae;
    Nice job on the combo deals. Everything is looking good.
    That NZXT M59 handled a couple HD 5970s (see NewEgg customer comment TSAGEEK @ 6/4/2010 11:04:41 PM)
