More about advice 1750 doller gamming build
  1. first, get the 6970 instead of the 2gig 6950. Second, switch the CPU to a i5-2500k, the mobo to the ASUS P8Z68 PRO/GEN3, get the Corsair TX850 PSU, get the HAF 922, and you're all set.

    thanks for the advice when you say a 6970 do you mean 2 of them or just 1
  3. just one
  4. Yea a 6950 has been known to Bios flash/hack to 6970 but eh if your gonna do all that. just get a 6970. that will last you and do better at playing at that res., Good choice on mobo's i personally believe ASUS is best in the business. every computer i have every built or purchased has had a ASUS board in it. and absolutely no issues what so ever
