  1. It's fine on a power surge bar.
  2. Its a very good rig, but r u really sure 670 4gig card? I have a feeling if u want a 4 gig card u
    better off with the 680
  3. I did the specs from a 670 4gb to a 680 2gb and the difference was about 5-8% better, and to the 690 was about 10%, Couldnt justify spending almost 200-600 more for just a maybe 10% upgrade.

    Plus i figure with the way i built it and my wattage for my psu i should be well within my overhead if i wanted to upgrade later, i think with everything in my machine i should have about 200 extra watts.
  4. You dont need 4Gb Vram unless you plan to go Syrim with HD textures everywhere and on 3+ monitors.

    Check this out.

    And that rig its just great !
  5. I do run a 55 LED through it, Hd 1080p
  6. Get a 2GB 670. 4GB is useless on a 1920x1080 monitor.
  7. I said 1080P. 3+ monitors have higher than 1080p
  8. Well there no different on inch, it about resolution, 1080p with 2gig vram is fine,

    4gig if u play at 2560x1920 resolution or dual or triple or quad Or six monitor set up, xD
    2. If u play heavily moded game like skyrim or crysis etc.

    The only point for u to still buying this card is for future game in 2013 or 2014 game *MAY* use higher vram
  9. I did buy it for the future considering how technology changes so fast, i didn't see the difference really in a 680 2gb or a 690 except price.

    Figure even if its 4gb, i can comfortably run it without putting nay extra stress on my machine.
  10. Could do a 7970 GHZ set up instead of the GTX 670 route. Theses cards are superb for multi monitor set ups.
  11. ok i have a random question as far as power supply units go, I bought corsair v2 850tx my question is, what kind of bottom ventalation should i have in order to keep it from running hot.

    I called corsair and thisis a bottom fed intake that sucks air from underneath and blows it out the back, i am worried about over heating and having less efficiency, is a table top fine?

    And what would cause it to heat up fast because i know with this new psu i'll be able to pump 70amps and my rig might get to 40 on the safe side.
  12. At the same time next gen card radeon 8000 and gtx 700 series *MAY* to use 4 gig of vram and 384 bits(nvidia)
    If this wont mind u, its fine, u will probably need to upgrade this card on the 800 or 900 series, if nvidia want to name their card this way,

    About ur psu, i dont really understand table top?
    Logically, the heat from bottom mounted psu usually come from the case itself, case cant provide enough or adequate air to the psu,
    Secondly, i suggest not to put ur case to near to a wall, i mean the back side.
  13. If you wont game at 3+ monitors get the 2Gb version or 680 (if you like NvidiA) or 7970 Ghz Edition.

    Well not a problem. My PC is siting on the top and the PSU is intaking cold air.

    Dont worry about your PSU. Its just great !

    Good Luck!
  14. Ok so basically as long as i have a space on the bottom for the intake to take in air i should be legit?

    Good to know :)
  15. Well the case that i have have 2cm space (or 3 max :P ) from the table and it stays cool. So no need to worry :)
