USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Civ 5, Battlefield series), 3D Rendering (SketchUp, 3DS Max, Thea Render), Photoshop, AutoCAD
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: New build- Likely a 850 Watt Thermaltake Black Widow
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Again likely setup- Thermaltake Element V Case, i7-940 processor, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R MB, G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600,
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
PARTS PREFERENCES: I'm more familiar with Radeons at this point- am I missing out by not looking at GeForce more closely?
OVERCLOCKING: Not at this time, maybe down the road (with additional cooling etc)
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: I would love a card that I can get a second one of in 6 months when i have the cash to make this thing a BEAST
MONITOR RESOLUTION: Current is 1680x1050, might upgrade down the road
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Along with a possible upgrade to Crossfire/SLI, I would love the option to run dual-monitors (More for productivity apps than gaming). My hand is being forced to build this sooner rather than later, so I'm trying to get a gret build for now that, when I have the cash, I can make an AMAZING build with a few upgrades (RAM, Second Card, SSD Bootdrive, maybe overclock with additional cooling).
