Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler - 84.99
PSU + Case: Corsair HX1050 1050w + 650d - 379.98
GPU: EVGA 580 (Classified): - 1080~ (it's out of stock atm, but I sort of remember how much it was.)
RAM: Corsair Dominator 8gb
That's around 2050~ before rebates. Any suggestions? I might go with an ATI card, if the scaling's better in Crossfire. I could bear waiting a month or two for the Keplers to come out though, and possibly prices to drop for the 580/7970/7950 though.
Also, any suggestions for a soundcard for a 5.1 surround sound system?
its mostly with crossfire they are having trouble. but i mean you have to cut them some slack; they are releasing a whole new die size (22nm) so they will most likely have problems. not to mention they released their 22nm cards a month + earlier than nvidia.
the only difference between the 2 cards you listed is that the double d has a better cooler on it. (double fans)
