Hi There, Im Aussie so newegg cant post to me......

Here is the parts I'm thinking of buying -
CPU: AMD AM3 Phenom II x4 955 3.2GHz
Motherboard: M4A79XTD-EVO
RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Graphics Card: HIS 1GB 5770
Power Supply: Corsair TX-650watt
OS: Windows 7 HP 64-bit
Monitor Resolution: 1600x900, 20" monitor

or

CPU: AMD AM3 Phenom II x4 945 3.0GHz
Motherboard: Asus M4N98TD-EVO
RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Graphics Card: Gigabyte 1GB GTX460
Power Supply: Corsair TX-650watt
OS: Windows 7 HP 64-bit
Monitor Resolution: 1600x900, 20" Monitor

I'm thinking that i might go SLI or crossfire about 2-3 months after i buy the parts so that's why that power supply,

Also which build will be better for GAMING, want to be able to play all new games at full graphics, the 5770 is
better for my price range but I guess I could stretch it a bit more and get the 1GB GTX460.....

Also will the 5770 run pretty much all new games full graphics and what is it equivalent to in ATI when its crossfired?

Thanks,
Westham101

(MSY really needs an more lookable website, WTH is that thing?)

Anyway, the 460s would be better at gaming especially when SLIed, even better if you plan to OC the processor too.

Get the 768MB 460 though, for your resolution the extra bandwidth wont help and the average difference between the 2 versions is only 7%. I really don't get the hype about the 1GB 460.

In the end, even 1 GTX460 (even 5770) is gonna do you fine for 1600*900, 2 would just be overkill.

Two HD 5770s in CrossFireX perform around the same as an HD 5870 in most games. Some games more like an HD 5850.

If this is for gaming then the second build is better, and GTX 460 SLI performs very well. Note that you will need a two dual molex to PCI-E six pin connectors if you want another card in SLI, as the TX650W only comes with two six pin PCI-E connections.

MSY has such a terrible layout. :(

So if i get the 768mb GTX460 will it be fine to SLI in the future and will it run a game like Assassins creed 2 or the new Medal of Honour full graphics???
