post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm looking more towards Nvidia for my GPU Needs because of it's supieror folding power. Or am i mistaken and has GPU3 came out and does AMD cards fold better now?

I haven't done folding in a couple months due to heat/electric bill with AC on

If you want a Nvidia card right now get a gtx 560 ti or if you want a new card right now and want to upgrade to a gtx 600 series when they come out get a gtx 460 to save some cash.

You can sli with the high end am3+ motherboards too, Nvidia just listed which ones do with their new driver details.

motherboard-Asus Crosshair Formula V or if Biostar surprises me and releases their first Tpower board for AMD

Ram-Gskill Ripjaws

gpu-I'd just rock your current gpu until the new video cards come out in early in 2012 unless you really need one now in which case I'd go with a 6950 I'll be probably be getting a HD 7950 when they do come out.

CPU-the 6 core BD will be enough since even by 2014 most pc games will still be using 2-4 cores

New Dell Ultrasharps are releasing soon the 24 inch is already up on their site for preview the 23 inch will cost less I myself am looking at these monitors and can't wait for the 23 inch ones to come out.

Most pc already use 2-4 cores...
