IInferno October 15, 2012 4:29:25 PM Hi, thanks for the reply and thanks for showing me the partpicker site, didnt know about it. A few questions: How good is the Zalman case noise and cooling wise? if you know. My current setup has the Antec 300 case which i found was really good (at the time recommended by tom's hardware) Would you go for the gtx 670 now and not bother with sli or go for the 7870, save £100 and get a 2nd 7870 in a year and crossfire?
