Will save you money while keeping things amd. Zero_ a b B Homebuilt system January 6, 2012 8:19:52 AM The very first sentence tells me all our advice will be wasted. If I had $900 I'd build the $1000 build in my sig with a HD6950 instead of the HD6970. If I wasn't into heavy gaming, I'd drop the PSU to a Corsair CX430 and get something like a HD6770 for the occasional game. Would cost $750 and still be miles faster than the OP build in any application imaginable, apart from perhaps heavy video editing. 9_breaker January 6, 2012 1:33:59 PM Andre2807 said:Based on benchmarks, found on this site.
