Why are you getting 2 6970s???? I would just get a 6950 2gb and flash it to a 6970. If you can't do that then just stick to 1 6970, it will already play most games at max and everything at high. Even a GTX560ti can be able to play the latest games at high. I would get this Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=16950BD2247&v... It's cheaper and has crossfire support. Are you planning on OC? BohleyK December 1, 2011 2:59:55 PM Looks great! You won't have any problems playing games or video/photo editing, thats for sure.

What case is all of that going in? BohleyK December 1, 2011 3:12:11 PM cutebeans said:Wow, that's a pretty crazy build lol. Why are you getting 2 6970s????

You haven't seen the Nvidia forums, have you? GTX580 SLI isn't uncommon. We're talking UBER NERDS! I can't even follow most of the threads. cutebeans December 1, 2011 3:17:27 PM I know my friend, but it's for his SON. A single 6970 is already overkill for 90%-95% of the world lol. You add 2? that's crazy unless the guy is an VERY VERY BIG enthusiast ! I would rather save money than waste it on dual 6970s especially when the 6970 already eats the latest games for breakfast. obbyowned December 1, 2011 5:47:08 PM the computer is for my son and he makes videos for youtube and gets paid is all i know but he plays a lot my wife and i are always getting calls from him to pickup a new game on the way home from work also i was sugested two of the 6970 because he plays on a 60" 1080p tv and the case i was thinking is this one http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... would everything fit in that one? michxymi December 1, 2011 5:58:33 PM For FULL HD resolution a single GTX 570 / Radeon HD 6970 is more than fine....Crossfire or SLI for single HD monitor is just waste of money... Spend your money wisely.....get i7 2600K and 16GB RAM which will help a lot with videos! Then get a better SSD than OCZ crap...example Intel 510 series or newer Samsungs (SATA III for sure) obbyowned December 1, 2011 11:55:52 PM i think i might wait untill after xmas because i was told the new 7000 series are coming out soon? lp231 December 2, 2011 12:33:24 AM Get Windows 7 Professional 64bit as it supports more ram. Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit maxes out at 16GB. A single HD6970 is plenty for his needs you can save the money for future upgrades where it really needs it. You may want to change the SSD to a Crucial M4 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
