  1. That list is missing a one or two high end like the GTX670 or 680 and the Ti version of some cards.
    Anyway you did not mention how much you can spend
  2. You're missing the GTX 660Ti, 670, 680 and 690.
    However, I can not imagine you needing a good card like one of the cards in the 600-series for those uses.

    How much are you willing to spend?

    i have priced from 45.oo, to 4-5 hundred. lol... so im thinking 150.00, 200.00 at least, ddr3 cooled , hdmi. 2Gig.. as the bord stands, 2 PCIe x16. so i would like to crossfire, but if i would like not, and only use one card ,and not have to change cards when not useing both. to be able to pull one card and go on with out the other and not crossfire.

    i'm sorry but picing a vid card has been unreal. thank u for your help.
  4. thats 150- 200 to spend per card.
  5. That PSU is not very good other than having a lifetime warranty lol so i recommend you wait for 660 TI if you can't or don't want to

  6. thank you for that input. that is true (psu) this is more the impression i was going with,

    E145-1564 ::EVGA 01G-P3-1461-KR GeForce GTX 560 Superclocked Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16), 2x Dual-Link DVI-I, Mini-HDMI, DirectX 11, Dual-Slot, SLI Ready, Overclocked(1.75 lbs)

    so other than that new card smell what would u think.

    as i do know this is little small in light of the rest of the set up, i will be swapping for a better psu i would like to spend 150.00 -200.00,2g each card crossfire ready. as well as for the psu, 150.00-200.00 as well.

    i do not know how well sims 3 will play with crossfireing, any input and experiences to share would also be appreciated.

    thank you.
