1. Is a single or dual GPU?
2. Will it be possible to hook up 3 monitors to this card? (By looking at specs it seems I could, but another commenter mentioned I cannot hook up one nVidia card to run 3 monitors, so I'm a little confused)
3. How loud is this card or how loud do you think this card will be?
No, you can do that with AMD cards. The HD 6970 is some 10% slower and much cheaper. But it's slower only on one monitor, on three it should be on par with that GTX because of the larger memory size (2GB vs 1536MB)
I have no idea how loud are those cards, read the customers' reviews on Newegg. With the money that you spare you can buy a silent case anyway.
A capacitor (formerly known as condenser) is a passive electronic component consisting of a pair of conductors separated by a dielectric (insulator).
Capacitors are widely used in electronic circuits for blocking direct current while allowing alternating current to pass, in filter networks, for smoothing the output of power supplies, in the resonant circuits that tune radios to particular frequencies and for many other purposes.
Well, I'm a newbie and this is my first build so I'm naturally a little worried as my learning curve is a little steep at this point. My previous systems have been boxed Gateway and Dells and this is my first foray into building my own rig.
I thank you and everyone else who have been answering my questions.
"Grasshopper" really appreciates it.
I think I'm going to go with this Asus 6970 dual fan version then.
