Why pay more? Get a 6870 instead of a 5850. Somewhat better performance, less power use, better scaling in crossfire, but... The 880 Mobo is OK, as long as you plan to only ever do single GPU. The ASRock 870 Extreme 3 is the cheapest 8x/8x crossfire board around. (varying between 89.99 and 109.99 at newegg) RAM is fine, though you could trim a bit off the price with 1333 instead of 1600. Get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB drive. faster than the caviar black at throughput (80 MB/sec vs 74 MB/sec), less cost (only $69.99) m 0 l DNAz January 6, 2011 8:55:04 PM My New version Antec Nine Hundred Steel ATX Ultimate Gamer PC Case (Black) Asus M4A79XTD EVO Socket AM3/AMD 790X/4DDR3-1800(OC)/ATI CrossFireX/GbE/Raid/eSATA/7.1-CH/1394 ATX Motherboard AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2 GHz 4x512 KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Retail HDZ955WFGBMBOX ASUS AMD Radeon HD 6870 1 GB GDDR5 Video Card EAH6870/2DI2S/1GD5 Samsung 1 TB Spinpoint 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.5 inch Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive HD103SJ Corsair TW3X4G1333C9A XMS3 4 GB Memory Kit fro PC3-10666 1333mhz 240-pin Dual Channel DDR3 Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750-Watt TX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply compatible with Intel Core i7 and Core i5 ASUS Internal 24x DVD Rewritable SATA Optical Drive DRW-24B1ST Retail (Black) Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit System Builder 1pk Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Student (Disc Version) 12" Cold Cathode Case Lights - 2 Piece (Blue) $175D...What do you think? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
