  1. +1 for above thing.
  2. Thanks you werner123

    i feel i now understand what you mean.

    so.. 2 Cards in SLI (Asus GTX 570 DirectCU II) will be enough for "Extreme Gaming settings"

    with this HW

    CPU - Intel Core i5 2500K
    CPU Cooling - Corsair Hydro H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
    PSU - Corsair HX1000W
    Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
    Asus GTX 570 DirectCU-II SLI
    Memory - Corsair Vengeance-8gb ddr3-memory (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8)


    is that a good idea for NOW ?

    Thanks.
  3. Yeah of course.
    i'm running with Samsung T240 @ 1920X1200. i feel that will be Extreme Look
    and about AMD or Nvidia. maybe i'm with Nvidia. :D
    i like the GTX 570, 580 DCII. Amazing card
    Thank you so much werner123 and any suggestion about my rig i'm ready
  4. 570 SLI is a beast setup but remember that games like metro 2033 and crysis (maybe BF3 tooo)eat up 1400mb+ VRAM when maxed out on 1080p.i tested metro 2033 personally and almost 1400+mb was used.
