  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 http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2010/11/16/asus-lga1155-motherboard-preview/2
  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...
