You should look at something like the ASUS P8P67 PRO B3.

A Sapphire HD6950 2GB Crossfire for example, would perform a lot better with that motherboard + an i5 2500k, rather than the X6 1090T, you won't regret it.

Let me know if you are considering the i5 2500k and HD6950GB Crossfire Combo, then I'll move the thread into the appropiate section of the forum.

I cant be bothered with all the hassle, I think I'll just buy a new Motherboard, get the second 6850, the antec 1200 case and of coarse, what would be a good power supply for 150 dollars?

Your money, your choice, I won't be forcing you to do anything, we're just trying to help you out to get the best you can with that budget, going with an X6 is a huge mistake in my opinion......

A good PSU for a 6850 CFX would be a Corsair HX650 or HX750.

But then again, I think you're doing a big mistake going into the X6 route, I'd rather wait for Bulldozer or buy an Intel i5 2500k... But hey, it's your money.

I'm not going to buy a x6, im just gonna keep my x4 840. It does the job.
post #26 of 63
Alright then, that's a more clever choice in my opinion, rather than side-grading to the X6 1090T.

If you do this make sure that you get an AM3+ motherboard. That way you'll be able to upgrade to bulldozer when the time comes.

EDIT: And whats up with your sig? says you already have an x6, did you preemptively update it?

Well a 6850 will play pretty much any game on full settings anyway. I have a 5750 and that even plays crysis on high settings. I know that an ssd does make loading times faster.

Also if you don't care about cable management get a corsiar TX650W or 750 like kcuestag said. Because its cheaper than the HX modular series.

You sure you can play Crysis 1 maxed out with an HD5750? How many FPS do you get?

I don't consider anything maxed out unless I can play it at +60fps, and I doubt the HD5750 can do that in Crysis .

Making load times faster is not worth 150$-200$ in my opinion.

But it's just not the load times for games. It speeds the whole operating system up. You have got one you should know how fast they are compared to a normal 7200 rpm hard drive. I can play crysis on my 5750 with high, not max settings with decent fps. My 5750 won't playboy maxes out but I'm sure a single 6850 will do that no sweat. I just think that 2 6850s are overkill. Also am i right in saying that if a monitor is 60hz, you can only see 60fps?
