Hope you all like it....i try to make it under 2000 but it turn out to be 2065$
because of the 3WAY sli price i couldn`t add a SDD, a blu-ray player or a after market cooler but with the stock one you are more than perfect to overclock to 3.8 Ghz

Also i just wanted to comment that it is not that i dont like the 2000$ budget build that its being featured here on TH`s but i think this one is WAAAAAY MUUUUUCH BETEEEER it might not have a fancy SDD a blu ray player or a aftermarket coller but....I AM SURE it will beat the hell out of the build i mentioned on crysis..... i am just saying..... :D  Cheers!!

I guess if you still play Crapsis then........

3 570's is just dumb, go with 1 and add more when they get cheaper and you actually need them.

Your gonna need 4ghz cpu to even keep up with 2 570's, so your gonna need the aftermarket cooler.

You dont necessarily need to overclock the i7 for it to keep up. Its one of the best processors on the market (currently) and should be able to keep up pretty easily. Have you looked at the new 6970s? You could get two of them(or three) and I believe they would out perform the three 570s(dont quote me on that). Also, you might want to check out www.newegg.com , theres usually pretty good combos there that can save you some money.

I realize I just posted this on another thread but I think it's a good build that will work well for this. I just added another GTX 570 to the total and it brings you under budget and has one of the best air coolers you can buy.

I agree that the 3rd 570 isn't worth it so I would stick with 2

CPU/Cooler: i7 + Noctua $365
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Motherboard/Ram: X58 Sabertooth + 2x3GB G.Skill $255
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

GPU: 2 X EVGA GTX 570 $700
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive: Samsung F3 1TB $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DVD Burner: LG DVD Burner $19
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: HAF 922 $90
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: XFX 850W $150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total: 1634

With this total you could add a 120GB SSD for $215 and bring the total to 1849 and still have room for the bluray burner and stay under the $2000 budget

Just a suggestion

@jasonh8806 nice build +1
December 16, 2010 5:46:43 AM

I agree, stick with 2 gtx570 or 2 6970 as performance past that is unnecessary.
And the 5970 isn't trash, I can't decide so far if I like the 570 or 6970 more,
It's $20 more a card for eyefinity, 2gb frame buffer, better xfire scaling and higher performance in some games.

Considering 6900s In CrossFire

But wait, there’s more. What about the Radeon HD 6900s in CrossFire? After all, AMD claims to have made some notable improvements to its scaling.

You’re only going to buy two high-end graphics cards if you’re running at the top resolutions with visual details maxed out. That’s where the 2 GB frame buffers featured on both 6900-series cards come in handy. In many cases, two $300 Radeon HD 6950s outperform a pair of $350 GeForce GTX 570s, saving you $100 total for better frame rates.

Please tell me fanboy, why o why is the 6970 "trash"?

Because I could show you plenty of benchmarks that prove otherwise.

Compared to the GTX570 the 6970 is not worth the 20 dollars extra. The 6950 is a better deal at 300, especially crossfired

Just my opinion

The 6970 is trash becuase its a crappy version of the the gtx 570, and 20$ more.

If i had a nickel for every diot to call me a Nvidia/Ati fanboy, I'd be rich.

It's the same speed or slower, more expensive, guzles energy.

I think you are being a little melodramatic.
