Currently I've got everything for a new build except for a GPU. I'm weighing option between the 7950/7970, with my selected PSU size would I be better off going w/ one over the other, with a crossfire option in the future?
Here's what I'm sitting on for my new build:
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN-3
2x4GB Corsair Vengence DDR3
Corsair HX750 PSU
Samsung 830 SSD
WD Caviar Black HD
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste
ASUS Optical Drive
Corsair 650D Case
I will be running this build at 1920x1080 playing WoW, BF3 etc.
hd 7950 will be ok and can do gaming and other things quite brilliantly with your resolution no need to buy 2x7950 it may be overkill for 1080p it will be better to buy cheaper hd 7950 and after some years crossfire.
Sounds like majority is favoring the 7950 at my resolution, with the option to crossfire years down the line. If I were ever to add a multi-monitor set up with my psu size, the crossfired 50s will still prevail over a single 70 I'm assuming (single 70 meaning no crossfire due to psu limit)? Also, if the time ever comes to add a second, with an OC'd cpu and gpus, will I still be solid with my 750w psu?
Thanks everyone for the fast responses, I appreciate the help.
