Hi guys ! So first of all, i will not buy this, so if you dont want to waste time on something, what will i not buy, go away.
So i was thinking, what would be the best computer, if i would have no budget.
And it made me think ... Will be 3970X able to make go all these GTX 680 work on 100 % ? And if it somebody already did, how much FPS can he get in BF3 ? I know it is complete overkill, but i just wanted to know what is best performing game computer
Should be able to run 4 WAY SLI GTX 680 on 100% if you overclock the i7 to like 5 GHZ
At 1080p, a CPU would have no chance trying to keep up in some games, like online BF3. A guy with 3 670's earlier in the year was doing this, and had bottlenecking issues at 5760x1080p with BF3 online, even with a 4.8Ghz OC.
I'd probably switch out the 4 680's for 2 690's. Or at least water cool the 680's. The noise from those 4 680's jammed together would ruin the experience.
This would work well for 3D Vision surround, or maybe 3 x 2560x1600 monitors.
Hate to break it to some of you guys, but 4 GPUs isn't really a supercomputer that would tear up anything except 3dmark11... it's more like a permanent trip to driver hell with a nice side of constant headache from the noise...
