    Thanks for the reply. That setup looks good but would those 2 gpu's run together ok without any cooling?
  3. Yes, the 68xx series run cooler then the 5xxx series, which was already very cool.
  4. ^mhm
  5. I think you'll want to do better than an 8ms response time on that monitor. Look for 2 or at the very least 5.
  6. Thank you all for the response. I'll be ordering these in a few days but if you think of any updates to what you already gave me it would be welcome.
