I don't think the SR-2 can run 980x or 990x , only Xeon

quad-sli gtx 580's would perform better than 2x gtx 590

im not sure about tri-sli but with that budget he might as well go with quad sli for the e-peen factor

He said SR-2 OR a 980x/990x based system.

2x 590 3GB = Quad, since the 590 3GB is already a stand alone dual.

so Quad 580 vs Dual 590 = Dual 590 win.

It has nothing to do with that. Normal gaming at 1080p can be done with a budget of 1.5k easily. Surround and 3D gaming requires much more extensive hardware. I'd love to see you game at a resolution of any 2560 resolution, maxxed out with a 1.5 to 1.8k budget. Hell that won't even max out Metro or the Witcher 2.

Also, my budget is more then just hardware. I admit some of my stuff isn't needed, but I want it to look good. I want a theme and everything color coordinated. So yes, that will cost me a little more money.


Also, I'm trying to avoid the x58 platforms. For cost to performance ratio, it's not very good compared to the P67. x58 will allow me to tri sli though, but I'm not interested in a quad setup. I just can't see the scaling being worth the money.

HELLO FRIEND
IF U WANTS RUNS 2 CARDS THEN SABERTOOTH P67 IS PERFECT
BUT IF U WANTS 3 CARDS THEN MAXIMUS IV IS PERFECT
GPU U PICK UP MSI 580gtx LIGHTING BUT THIS IS LITTTLE WRONG

ASUS 580GTX ROG MATRIX IS NEW CARD AND BEST
HAS 19 PHASE DESIGN FOR XTREME OC
AND PRICE ABOUT $530 AROUND

CPU - INTEL 2600K
MOTHERBOARD - ASUS MAXIMUS IV B3
GRAPHICS - ASUS 580GTX ROG EDITION
CPU COOLING - CORSAIR H100 FOR 5GHZ(SOON RELEASE)
OR MAY BE U GO WITH FULLY WATERCOOLED SYSTEM
PSU OCZ ZX 1250W FULLY MODULAR (PRICE ABOUT 225$ NEWEGG)
CASE CORSAIR 800D OR COOLERMASTER HAF-X

I HOPE U CHOOSE ASUS 580GTX ROG MATRIX BECAUSE ITS BETTER
PUT A WATERBLOCK ON IT SURE U WILL HAVE 1GHZ+ RESULTS WITH LOWER TEMPS

WHY ARE WE SHOUTING?

Two thoughts:

Thought 1 -- With that budget, I say "pish posh" to SB. It's not all-round better than X58. It's just a better value for most people building gaming rigs today, considering that most people building gaming rigs are building them for $800-$1500.

Thought 2 -- If your goal is just to build the best gaming rig you can, so that you can game as fast as possible with all eye-candy turned on (and that's what I'm supposing, based on the desire for tri-SLI as well as the other comments made in this thread,) then you're going to be sorely disappointed when your $4500 rig doesn't provide much if any meaningful improvement over your friend's $2000 rig. Now if you plan to do more with your PC, or if the point is to experience the joy of playing with hardware and building computers in-and-of-itself, then go nuts. An EVGA SR2 would be where I'd look as well.
