So what you think? More about : gaming build scorpinock2 November 23, 2012 5:40:26 PM That is a great build there. The only thing I would say is spend he extra on an HD 7970, it will give you considerably better performance. Other than that, great job on the build Kaamanen November 23, 2012 6:19:26 PM Thanks for reply! I was looking for 7970 but wasn't sure if its worth about 100€ price difference. Would asus or xfx be better (or even gigabyte)? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
