Try a 6870 or 6950 if you fancy stretching your budget. It depends on your monitor resolution though. m 0 l lighter420 February 28, 2011 2:04:20 PM HD 1080p 42" would be the res im guessing 1900x1080? kind of new at this thanks for the reply, will look at the 750/850 psu's. m 0 l Related resources is my graphics card bottlenecking - Forum Is my motherboard bottlenecking my graphics card? - Forum Graphics card bottlenecking because of motherboard? - Forum Is my Graphics card bottlenecking? - Forum Is my CPU bottlenecking my newly bought MSI gtx 770 graphics card? - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Griffolion a b U Graphics card February 28, 2011 2:07:18 PM There is no need to crossfire at 1080. A single 6950/6970 will be more than enough for your needs, on the Nvidia side a GTX 560 or 570 if you want to push the boat. Honestly, unless you're going to be using more than one screen or are using a monitor at a resolution of, say, 1600p then think about crossfiring but otherwise there is no need. m 0 l lighter420 February 28, 2011 2:11:43 PM Ok awesome, trying to do this without spending the bank, the cpu would do good with any of those cards? thanks for your time!! m 0 l Griffolion a b U Graphics card February 28, 2011 2:20:13 PM Yeah, get an after market heat sink for your CPU and over clock it to minimise the risk of your CPU holding your system back in games. The GTX 560 / 6950 will be the best for you I would say. m 0 l lighter420 February 28, 2011 2:21:56 PM google searches kept bringing me to these forums, glad i took the time to post. thanks griff! m 0 l Griffolion a b U Graphics card February 28, 2011 2:27:31 PM Haha no problem, people are always around to help. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
