ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I wanted to try and see if I could make a decent gaming PC for a good price and I think I came up with one but I'm not 100% sure everything works together well.
I used ASUSTeK to figure out how much power my PC would need.
I also looked at the rankings on this website to find a top video card with CrossFireX.
The thing is I do not know if all these components will work together and if they are the best for the price. Please give me your thoughts and remember this is my first time trying this so... there might be things that don't match... or things I am missing. Please let me know what you think and what needs work, thank you!
I'm not up to date with pretty much anything computer related besides some basics. What would be the difference between the 955 or the 965? I'm more curious why it makes a better option.
I will use that DvD as you suggest it has thinner cable and that would prove useful!
I like the idea of cross firing because later down the road it would be cheaper to just get the same video card and put them together... rather than buying a really expensive one now and then buying a really expensive one later.
p.s. would my HD2600 card connect to a HD5770? I know it sounds stupid but thought I would ask since I currently have that card in my PC
I like your build I just don't know if it has a lot of room for expansion. I really don't like the idea of not having the extra pcie slot just in case down the road i want to link them.
EDIT: Also I forgot to ask... my build everything would fit and match together so I didn't goof anything up?
