It will also be used for hobby level video editing and 3d design in programs like autocad CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY:None, yet, but I was looking at a OCZ 750W OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Mobo - G1-Assassin, cpu - i7 3820 PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Umart, kinda like Australia's newegg PARTS PREFERENCES: Nvidia preffered, just feel that intel gears goes a bit better with Nvidia. OVERCLOCKING: Yes SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Only if I have to for the results I want, the 60fps on max settings in BF3 is my goal MONITOR RESOLUTION: 2 X 1600x1200, ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I will have water cooling, Again must run Bf3 60 fps max settings. I did have a look at the charts on the site http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2012-vga-gpgpu/13-Ba... The MSI GTX 670 looks pretty good on those charts So that would be my choice, but I'm a little unsure if that is a single card or 2 in SLI on the chart More about : advice gpu high budget EzioAs a b U Graphics card January 2, 2013 1:36:33 AM The one in the chart where they get 92fps is 2 GTX670s. I suggest getting a GTX670 (since you want nvidia) or even 2 if it fits into your bugdet ninjamark January 2, 2013 1:53:13 AM Ahhrhsa;da I thought so, I can get 2, so I probably will. But with the water cooling it will blow my budget, which I can do, I just have to tell my partner that Related resources Advice on New GPU , $550 budget - Forum Need advice on quiet GPU (€200 budget ) - Forum FIrst build - $600 +/- budget build - Need GPU advice . - Forum Extreme build. $4000+ budget .
