Need some advice wrt possible upgrade, gpu/mem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey peeps

I need some advice please.

As you can see I've currently got 3*1 gb dominators. Would getting another 3*1gb set pose any problems with my current overclock on my motherboard and would another set have any benefits?

I'm also running a crossfire 4890 setup. The biggest gripe I have is power consumption, these two are hungry. I don't really have any issues with current games on 1980*1080 but if I decided to go to a single GPU card, what would be the best bang for buck, giving way better performance and using less power than these two from either the Nvidia or AMD camp?

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

i think the more ram you have can always hinder an overclock. but as far as gpu's go you'll probally have to look at something like a 6970 to get better performance than you have now. two 4890's probally still hold there own pretty well.

Yeah still they do perform pretty well, even if they are a few years old.

Some clarity on the memory please?
