Just looking for any help or tips with this build. If the parts are compatible, if the build is viable, and if anyone sees a possible bottleneck to the system. Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance!
MSI Twin Frozr II is the "best" out there. Honestly, if you are running this card at stock speeds, MSI, EVGA, ASUS, or PNY are my choices. Some people would stick Gigabyte in there, but i dont see them as a viable options with the other 4 choices. ASUS is what i like for my GTX5xx's cards, and their single fan gpu's tend to stay cooler due to higher air flow through an enclosed hsf casing.
GTX 580 isn't faster (average fps) than SLI GTX 560 (if games scales properly)
But usually do have higher minimum fps, lower temp, less noise, and always work (sometimes SLI doesn't works).
I would recommend GTX 580 over the SLI (I do have SLI, but only cause I bought one card at time)
I'm about to put in the order in for the parts listed in 2 hours. This is my first build so I'm a bit nervous. One last check to see if I am missing anything such as compatibility issues, cables, or necessary parts. Any help between now and then would be great. I'm excited/scared!!!
