  1. ^ Any real use of that PSU ?
    The setup that you have would at the max utilize just half the power of that PSU...
    Also with HD 6870 you can go only Dual-Crossfire, so frankly that PSU a total overkill...

    Also why do you need a 3D monitor when going with ATI cards? AFAIK 3D gaming is not famous on ATI cards...
  2. hey thanks for the info
  3. looks like a good build, like gkay09 said I'd tone down the PSU (way overkill!), what about getting a slightly cheaper monitor and running 3 in eyefinity?
  4. I'd hold out a little longer for SB and one of those sexy boards
  5. You don't need 1200... Just pick up an 850HX from Corsair, much cheaper and fully modular

    Check out the NZXT Phantom for a full tower, just see if you like it
  6. You could use two of these monitors as well. Very good performance .

    Also I agree that all you need is a good 850 watt PSU, either corsair or XFX should do you just great.
  7. You don't even need 850w.

    This is not a good build at $2500 because of the performance. You should wait for the 6900 series to come out.
  8. hey guys thanks for your posts
    i have decided to wait for the sandy bridge as it is confirmed to release on jan'11
    i hope by that time the 6970 comes out
  9. Best answer
    ^ Planning to spend that much, then its a good decision to wait... Also newer ATI and Nvidia cards will also be launched by then...
