Contemplating some upgrades.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have about 650 I could put into upgrades. What I was thinking is either.

GTX 580 EVGA + eK Block and link bridge. (Not sure if my rad/pump is strong enough though)

Or

GTX 580 Lightning
+ SSD (Perhaps OCZ Vertez 2 120Gb)

You'll see way more benefit out of an SSD then you will another 580, especially since yours is overclocked.

I agree get yourself an ssd, You will notice the biggest gains from that over a faster 580.
If i was to get a new 580 i would go for the new gigabyte gtx 580 soc, as it is the fastest one being released with a real nice cooler aswell

Or go sb

If you do go for an SSD alone, I think you should do one of two things: Save most of the money for later and get a small SSD just for Windows, or spend it all and get as big a drive as you possibly can.

Get a small SSD. Save more money, get a third monitor and another 580 for Surround.
