What Graphics Card suits my build most?

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Next week

BUDGET: If I'm getting a single GPU - Around USD500
If I'm getting 2 GPU's - Around USD300/GPU

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Sims WOW Battlefield etc.) - Youtube (HD) - Facebook Games - Web surfing - Everyday Task

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: I have no GPU currently, as this will be for my new build. Power supply I'm planning to get COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850 850W (Tho it really depends on whether I'm getting a single GPU or dual GPU's)

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:

Motherboard
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

CPU
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

RAM (What do you think? 16GB too much?)
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
or
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: None, I will be buying them myself :)

PARTS PREFERENCES: I am looking for Sapphire 2GB, but other suggestions are also welcome.

OVERCLOCKING: Yes
EYEFINITY & CROSSFIRE: Yes (I will be connecting up to 4 monitors)

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I'm not sure about this resolution thing, but I will be getting probably 22-24 inches LED monitors.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I can't decide if it's better to get a single GPU or duals. For duals, I can get one next week, the second one in early May. For single, I still have to get it in Early May. Although I would prefer dual GPU's.

Thanks in advance!

    8GB RAM is plenty, Get a better brand PSU

    Get a single GTX680 as your GPU
  2. Take a look at the new GTX 680 dude... :) Good Luck

    Single is better than dual

    (not that sure if you can get it now, but the benchmark tells me that you should wait till you can get it!)

    8GB is enough for any gaming purposes

    Planning to get a 850W Silent Pro??? I don't really recommend that, it is not very good value for the price. buying different brand the same quality will be cheaper such as this:

    Could you recommend anything with cable management?
    Thanks!
  4. As other HAF cases HAF 932 is one that nice built case, with big space and nice cable management feature. Make sure you use the feature that cables can be put in the back through those holes. Put the cables there. It'll look neat.

    You can also buy modular Corsair TX850.

    (The sale makes the price less than non modular, dunno about in your store, but can be worth more when considering cable management)
