Sapphire and Gigabyte make good cards with good cooling solutions. Though, I would keep that power supply and GPU as a spare or give them to a good friend, because Be Quiet! makes some darn good power supplies. I hate to see good power supplies go to waste. gnowine November 5, 2012 7:23:30 AM the plan is actually to have a crossfired computer . will this be ideal ? with my current motherboard and cpu? yeah i wont be throwing does stuff away anyway.
