I would like to run 2 or 3 monitors without lag if at all possible. i would also like to video edit, not to a great extent but i would like the option. Thank you much guys
Approximate Purchase Date: soon as possible
Budget Range: 1400
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, gaming and more gaming... also streaming movies
Good suggestions above
Here are my opinions on a few things
1. SSD doesn't add to system value as it does not improve gaming performance. Unless u have the extra few bucks to spend on the ssd its not helping you.
U r better off investing in better Graphics. As much as u can afford.
2.Since u want to run multiple monitors if u r looking at high resolutions and single card configuration ur best bet would be a 6950 2GB or a 6970.
AMDs solution are better for multi monitor setups.
If u dont mind multiple GPU configs 2 X 6950 2GBs would be awesome. The 6 series CF scaling is great.
