OVERCLOCKING: CPU is overclocked but can't go over 3.52 Ghz due to motherboards failure on having an option to change the FSB : DRAM ratio to 1:1 so the CPU stays at 3.52 Ghz as for the GPU I would like it to have overclocking software like the one I have now does if not its not a problem I can do it the old way but I need it to be as overclockable as it can be (I really like tweaking things )
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe in the very far future when I change motherboard (very far future not considered as an option now)
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Now here's the real deal now I'm using a 21 inch screen which was pretty comfortable with max resolution at 1440x900 so my graphic card could fully support it, but my auntie gives me as a gift for going to university a new monitor which I'll choose and I'm going to spend alot of money on that probably around 450-500$ USD and I would also like you to give me advises on what monitor to choose, like how many inches (regular tv 32" or no) best resolution for gaming and movies.
I've seen 1920x1080 being a popular resolution for HD movies, 1920x1200 supported by many graphic cards of my budget and I've seen that my budget supports 2560x1600 (MSI R5770-PMD1G for example).
So would it be better buying for example a 32" monitor with 2560x1600 resolution and a graphic card with that resolution or an 26" monitor with 1920x1080/1200 resolution and a graphic card with that resolution because my system may choke on the 2560x1600?
well with the budget you put out you are not going to find a 30 inch monitor that does 2550x1600.. Your best bet is to go with a 1080p monitor if you plan on watching alot of movies. If you want a large monitor the best bet is to get a small tv those do 1080p and will fit into your budget.
As for the monitor I 've seen the 24" and the 26" and I believe 26" suits my needs more.
On a second note I wanted to ask in case I get a 1920x1080 monitor and a 1920x1200 GPU and vice-versa would that be bad for perfomance?
Also my main concern is if my CPU will be able to handle the new GPU or not because of the overclocking problem so it would be great if someone could tell me if my cpu would slow down the system or not.
Also 450-500$ USD goes for the monitor and 150-240$ USD goes for the GPU
