So...what do you think?

Ok what do you think of my budget build? Would it be able to handle games like cod, crysis, mafia 2, and just cause 2 max with physx on? What would this rig choke up on if any? If it cant handle physx at max on games like mafia 2 should i add a dedicated physx card like a gts 450 or 430 or just sli another 560ti? Thanks.. peace out :hello:

More about what think
  1. Hello sofyanator;
    What screen resolution will you be gaming on? A HD 5770 is plenty for a 1280x1024 monitor.
  2. Best answer
    It would be a neat trick to SLI anything on that CFX MB.
    Also your motherboard costs more than the CPU?

    ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard $90
    XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB Video Card $290 $30 rebate
  3. 1920x1200 maybe nvidia 3d in future and no offense but i dont much enjoy ati. Its not that there not a good company but there just a little behind on drivers and tech right now so i would prefer nvidia with ther physx, 3d vision, and superior sli. I like ati dont get me wrong but niether am i a fan boy i pick who i would say is winning at the time and go with them so what im trying to say is i dont want to blow this up with a thousand replys from people about how ati is great and that im a retard... thanks
  4. ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 motherboard is CrossfireX only. It can't SLI 2x GTX 560 Ti.
    And you may want to do that with a 1920x1200 resolution monitor.

    A. I know an SLI hack, but its not realy a hack for of a driver update that allows you to run sli like normal. Also i wanted a budget but high peformance asus board thats good for oc, future upgrade, highbandwith cards, and my 1600mhz memory. Personaly i like it and im a modest guy for cpus,, my motto, buy low...clock high so yeah that would explain... what do you think about the rest of my components... would they be apropiate for what i said in the first part of the thread. thanks
  6. Is your budget going to be OK with a SLI motherboard and CPU budget @ $408?
  7. what did you have in mind? idd realy rather not go higher then 900 and im at about 910 right now which is pretty cozy and if your saying upgrade to intel sandy bridge or the x58 id rather not, I had a lot of problems finding legit sandy mobos and x58s are too expensive. So this is a temporary build, when the new boards come out in summer ill sell the mobo and cpu and buy the new sandy bridge ki and just plug in all my components so i dont want to go overboard on cpu and mobo. If you think im an idiot on the sli thing please google it and youl find many tutorials with great reviews and forums on it, trust me it works.
  8. realy guys? Why does every one just read and never give answers? I have to post in like 5 different sections to get an acutual answer?
