Hey im buying a custom built PC and really need some help im going for a very high end build around £1400 just need advice on a graphics card my choices are
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB
AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB
2 x AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB
2 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 1GB
2 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB
Just wondering which one would be best i don't care if its overkill i have the money to spend i could just use some advice on which is best and why im using it for gaming and recording at the same time aswell as video editing and this is on two monitors all recorded in 1080p using FRAPS if you need any more information just ask
Thanks in advance!
Results of the 12.11 Catalyst Driver. While it is true that Nvidia have released a new driver that boosts performance, I havent seen any benchmarks yet.
The 7970Ghz are above the 680, while costing $50 less if you get good aftermarket models.
Downgrade to a 3570k, the i7's Hyperthreading isnt needed in games.
Downgrade the H60 to a Hyper 212 EVO, its exactly the same in cooling performance and much cheaper. Halve the RAM to 8GB, thats all you need for gaming.
Downgrade the PSU to a 650W unit unless Crossfire/SLI is a concern, then downgrade to 750W. Also a better brand then Coolermaster, go for Corsair or Seasonic.
Unless you have the sound system to match, no need for an expensive sound card.
you know my opinion to get the 7970 over the 680.
Should be good.
Also don't pay for them to overclock it, its fairly easy to do on your own. I wouldn't pay someone $50 to change one number in the BIOS.
EDIT: Forgot you are also doing video editing.
EDIT 2: up the SSD to 128GB, 60GB will dissapear fairly quickly.
