More about first build
  1. usually, no
  2. Don't plan on overclocking until a learn more about, so
    eventually maybe.
    Mono comes with integrated card so I was hoping to
    crossfire if possible.
    Build is for gaming, little internet browsing, maybe a word
    document once in awhile.
    I would like to run high resolution, naive in this
    department so I can't give specifics.

  5. Here's something a bit different than what you had, but it gives you another idea so to say. This build allows you to add another vid card later on down the road, as well as o/c.
