More about gaming decide monitor casing
  1. Memory: Samsung 1600 if you can find it

    Video card: those are very different options. I'd avoid SLI/Xfire, personally, and if you can get a 7970/670, I'd say go for it.

    Power Supply: I'd suggest you looking into seasonic.

    Case, kinda personal, but the corsair 200r is a great budget case, I personally have the Refine R4 by fractal design

    Monitor: Dell U2312HM
  2. Hey thanks i will compare those things on my list and if i can find them here in my country - about the 7970 and the 670 i dont have the right budget for it - i dont know what to trim down on my computer

  6. Sorry ki321. I misunderstood your initial post. Thought you meant you were going to get x2 7950 cards (would cost $600+ US, so made the 670/7970 options). That said, I'd look at the 7870XT. I have this card, and it seems to perform very well for me, and it's budget friendly. :D
