I'd certainly reccomend a GTX460 GPU - If you plan on just buying one, then go with a 1gb model. If you are going to SLI them, the added memory of the 1gb model becomes a moot point... buy the basic 768mb version. Of course look for superclocked models
Thanks for the quick answers guys, I am thinking about SLi in the future but its a little out of my budget. So which card would give me the best price/performance (for say crysis, avp, bioshock, etc.) Also would my CPU be bottlenecking two 460s in SLi?
I would say ditch all/any thoughts of CF/SLI for budget builds In fact at the rate how fast tech moves make CF/SLI previous gen cards downright inefficient with the games of tomorrow, i would advocate single (beefy) GPU set ups for high end gaming rigs as well @@ State your budget, what u need exactly and resolution games to be played
So should I upgrade the GPU from a 460 to a 480 and ditch SLi for now BUDGET: 750-950 RESOLUTION: 1920 x 1080
Just the one beefy HD 5870 config @ $820AR?
I wanna keep to nvidia in case i do sli in the future. So would I better off with say a 460/480 or a 280?
Aswell, my budget is in the 7-1000 dollar range.
here is an intel build for $915.93 BR and $875.93 AR and it's sli ready
Thanks alot! This is what I was looking for. But one last question, do I gain much benifit by using the 955, or can I just stick with the 720 (this is primarily for gaming eg. Crysis, Farcry 2, MW2, etc.)?
u might gain 1-7 fps but i thought a quadcore would be more future proof
