which of these cards is better? - Page 2

I'm still not EXACTLY sure how much power this setup is going to need, and I'm waiting for the BD, but I might still end up with the 1090T OR the 1100T, idk yet.

Ah, I didn't realize Rosewill made anything of any kind of quality. I remember them being a cheap manufacturer from the parts that I purchased. I checked out Johnny Guru on some of their PSUs and it seems like they're pretty decent. Although, he should up the wattage a bit if he intends to run either of the AMD cards. 430 would suffice but if he's playing BF3 where the GPU is going to be @ 100% all the time then he probably should keep it between 5-600W minimum.

The 6870 in bf3 with my sig rig. On high settings with 2x aa i was averaging 55 fps with a 1080 23in monitor. It was smooth as butter. My cpu was at about 75% on all 4 cores and the video card was pegged at 100%. Good card choice.
Worse than crack.

Why not just get a 955? Games dont use 6 cores, atleast not yet. You can use the saved money on a GTX 560 ti!
Or you can use it on a differnt case, and you shouldnt need a fan controller when only adding 1 fan, you should find a case with a built in fan controller

I used to have a sentey case, and its a great case for a new build, but after getting a Corsair case, i could never go back xD The NZXT Phantom is nice too

Your power supply is ok, you might want to go with Corsair or Seasonic, they tend to be the most reliable. Although I've heard Antec makes very reliable PSU's too. So, its up to you.

I hope this helped!

but I wanna game AND render video... at the same time. I've heard many great things about the PSU, it's about all I need, and I like the case

Get the 6870, nice card and can play probably most if not all current games at high settings.
