2nd Post, 1st Build - <> - Need Help with Crossfire Mobo & Monitor
Thanks in advance for helping me with two more questions; I welcome anyone's input:
Approximate Purchase Date: today or tomorrow
Budget Range: less than $1000 including the monitor(s)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Games like SC2, Crysis, Web Surfing
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: micro center, frys, newegg
Country of Origin: Orange County, CA, USA
Parts Preferences: AMD
SLI or Crossfire: YES
FIRST QUESTION: I decided to keep the 5770 I bought a couple days ago and will get a second one to crossfire instead of returning it for a single better card; WHICH MOBO SHOULD I ORDER FROM MICROCENTER WHEN I PICK UP A PHENOM 965BE? (With the CPU bundle they give $40 any mobo in the store).
Monitor Resolution: upgrade to 1080p?
SECOND QUESTION: Would it make sense to keep my current monitor and go to a multi-screen scenario?
I currently have a Samsung SyncMaster 930B # Max Resolution 1280 x 1024 / 75.0 Hz # Max Sync Rate (V x H) 75.0 Hz x 81.0 KHz # Video Bandwidth 140.0 MHz # Response Time 8.0 ms
I have already bought and received the following components from newegg, please give me your input on the right mobo that is compatible with the 2 GPUs, ssd and memory. THANK YOU! -Deanomite
