You have to elaborate use of rig - 1st glance negative on CFing 2 x low end GPUs
Quote:
Graphics Card : Radeon HD 5570 DDR3 1024MB 650MHz PCI-E x2
£65+£65=£130

PSU also looks dodgy lol - hit a decent 80+ certified one?

So what would you recommend? I'd perfere to have two lower/mid range gpu's rather than one 5970 or something. Im looking for value for moneyish.
And I kinda agree about that psu, looked too low price to be good... would you say a corsair? Is it enough watts? I do still have 300 pounds left to spend, I already have a keyboard and mouse, and my speakers are old and crackly.

Edit : What would you say to the evo labs 800w http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silent-Gaming-Extreme-Modular-E...

and what about two vertex3d 5770's? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vertex3d-Radeon-1024mb-Express-...

For gaming on a 1080p display i would hit somewhere between a GTX 460 - HD 5870 depending on how much one is willing to compromise

So are you talking duals or single?
October 2, 2010 1:34:09 PM

Single GPU solutions ^^

Mmm okay, I guess i'll just have to resist the temptation of being able to boast about dual gpu's xD

Well after doing a little looking around ive found an EVGA GTX 470 which is right at the limit of the rest of my budget.
I know that evga are a good brand... so do you think its good? http://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-470/dp/B0042ZY...

Current Fermis the GTX 460 and to a certain extend GTS 450 would be good buys - read over a spread of reviews on why the higher end Fermis are not recommended buys ^^
