Help me Pick my cards $1200 budget

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys as the title states Im in need of a new GPU originally i was looking at the

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/N...5802DI1536MD5/

But according to my supplier in Australia i can no longer get that card, Now the main reason i was after that card and i know it probably sounds silly but it matched the color scheme of my build

Asus Sabertooth P67, Corsair Vengeance 8GB, Corsair H70 as u can c a very dark flat black sort of build.

Now the reason my budget is so high is Im looking at going for an SLI build that can run anything i can throw at it, planning on sticking with the GPU's for a good 2-3 years. mind you Im limited to a 850w gold PSU that with research is proven to work with a GTX 580 SLI build.

Any recomendations would be much appreciated

Cheers, Hawwtie

Nothing wrong with Asus as a brand, but they have other cards that don't use the reference cooler and look 100% better at the same time, well that is my opinion at least. Check their site for the DirectCU Top edition of the 580.

Alternatively look at one of these from MSI:

This one is black with blue fans, actually a very nice looking card:

or

add a touch of black and silver to your pc:
