Which way now?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
In the process of a build and have hit a wall. Just wondering with my system which way to go with Graphics cards. I scored a LG tv to use as a monitor and am not sure what to do in the way of graphic's. Any recommendations would be great. Sorry if this has been covered before.

Cheers

For 800 you can get 2 HD 6970s. You dont have to go with HDMI, you could use the DVI port as well.

Hows about a gtx 590?

Or... a ATi 6990? the 4GB ram will help you along on high resolutions

Lets just say what the g/f doesnt know wont hurt her. Am spending more on the build instead of buying a PS3 etc.
Is there a major quality difference between HDMI vs DVI?
