This is my setup.(sorry for so many links) I am going to play at 1600x900 BF3, Skyrim (Maxed/High)
I am also going to try to flash my 6950 to the 6970 bios. http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/vidcar...
And i wanted to ask if you guys know a good card reader.I saw this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Thanks! give me some advice please. I AM A FANBOY OF NVIDIA. SO IF IT IS POSSIBLE PLEASE RECOMMEND A GOOD CARD THAT PREFORMS WITH THE 6950!

asrock mobo vengeance ram to go with it. for 30$ more you can pick up a silverstone raven rv03 at NCIX US. otherwise everything is great id recommend that 560 ti cause overclocked it can perform almost head to head with a gtx 580

I would recommend getting an SSD, the R/W time on them is amazing and it will be a serious upgrade. SATA III SSDs are faster than SATA II but the SATA II drives are much less expansive at this point and the SATA II drives are still a huge improvement over standard HDDs.

I really like the phantom. I also found alot of people recommending the Ripjaws over the vengance. i also saw the 6950 with 6970 bios overcomes the 560ti. and i really am not going to overclock. maybe in a couple of years but no overclocking right now.
