So i have a question in regards to video card upgrade. Before i do this let me quickly tell you about my current built.
4 GB RAM
3.2 Ghz Black edition quad core 965
HD 5770 (just one of them atm)
a 500 W psu i forget what kind but its a descent one
HAF 922 gaming tower
Okay now heres my question. I will be upgrading my PC prob by december or early Jan. I am a little stumped though about the video card. I want to upgrade my videocard to somehting better than a 5770 and i also want to try crossfire. The question is ofcourse what video card would be the best for someoen who plays alot of games I try to play on max settings too and want to contine doing so (including multiplayer). Oh and i want to be able to play in HD too, will be buying a HD monitor soon. I was also wanting to try 3d gaming but i dont think ATi supports that like nvidia so will wait for that unless they do and im just a nub.
So, again in case i sorta rambled on, what video card would be best in crossfire with my new build. New build is below. This is what i plan to have!
8 GB RAM
AMD Phenom™ II X6 1090T Black Edition 3.2GHz w/ 9MB Cache
Corsair HX 750W Power Supply w/ 140mm Fan (thats what i have picked so far)
Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 w/ DualDDR3 1333, 7.1 Audio, Dual Gigabit Lan, USB3.0, 1394, PCI-E, CrossFireX (mobo)
HAF 922 tower
Thats it. And thank you guys for reading this and giving your inputs!
I would suggest the 6850. It scales quite well from the reviews in crossfire and only uses about 127 watts of power per card with one 6 pin connector per card. Also runs cool and quiet. The price is about $180 right now, also provides better tesselation performance than the 5000 series cards. I believe it is the first card from ATI that will support 3D ( have to read the reviews on that one) I just bought a 6850 for my mini computer with a 300 watt power supply and a quad core I5 750. Runs just fine and small enough to fit as carry on within a plane for trips. No more laptops for me. Otherwise I'd look at Nvdia 460 1gb series in SLI.
