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..... Cheers!!
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
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.
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.
