Total $1464.90 before rebates - $95 MIR = $1374.90
If you feel you don't need the second GPU, you can drop the second GPU/PSU combo and get a ~750W PSU and possibly a SSD as well. My theory is gaming performace over loading times which is why I opt for the dual GPU over the SSD.
If you don't plan to OC you can drop the CPU cooler, the stock one will be fine.
The 850W PSU will do fine but ideally, you would want to go with 950-1000W. Well worth the investment plus the rebates will compensate for it.
Some pretty decent pricing considering it's in Canadian dollars on par with any U.S. deals if not cheaper.
I wouldn't use the NCIX US site cuz they practice what Newegg.ca does as far as shipping goes.
You have the luxury of mixing and matching US(Newegg.com) and Canadian pricing(Ncix) as well as taking advantage of Newegg.com which ships alot of items for free.
Newegg.ca is useless 90% of the time their because shipping charges are atrocious.
Thanks both of you! Ill take both your suggestions into serious consideration, and kureme thank you very much for the info but you double linked some items! ahahah i found them by myself on newegg regardless
Yes now that I look at it.. I will get a 470 crossfire or 460 if the budget is 2000.. one question though.. are the cards to thick to crossfire? will they not fit on my motherboard.. ( p6x58d-e) .. and what is the power consumption for both in crossfire?
Sorry for being lazy.. well it seems I will get a pair of 1gb 460's.. as their performance is very impressive despite the 500$ pricetag.. and about 650watts and I have a 850 watt power supply.. not bad.. I doubt they wouldnt fit either.
Oh they will fit fine, unless you have some abnormal one with a huge cooler that takes an extra slot. And you can get 2 768mb's 460's in SLI for a little over 300 and the performance won't be a huge difference but for the price...it might be considerable. The 460's max power consumption is 160 watts, 2 of them is 320. A 650watt PSU should be enough to SLI them IMO. An 850 can do triple SLI with them no problem most likley.
Alright well I think ive figured out my build... thanks you guys for all the help! I think Ill go with the 1gb 460's.. just for the extra power boost and I dont know who to select for best answer ahaha
