Ty Sooo much, it really shocks me how helpful people are on these forums, may good juju be passed onto you sir.
Btw, how big of a difference is there between the 3gb 580 and 1.5gb 580?
is the 3gb worth the jump in price?
post #12 of 20
The 3gb is just an extra 1.5gb's of VRAM. If you are playing on 1080p you don't need the extra vram. I have two 1.5gb 580's and so far I have not hit the limit on vram. 3gb is just better for higher resolutions and multiple displays. If you have the money, it's up to you. You can't go wrong either way.

Ty, and as for the case I still think I will be going w/ the 922 haf mainly because it can be bundled w/ Win7 for a total of $286. this seems to be a great deal unless there is another way that I could get W7 for cheaper .
also does that Mobo support SLI? beacause w/ two 580's Id prolly want to put them in SLI right?

I like my haf 922. But then again I have only one gtx 460. Two 580s might make it cramp, but I don't know. A HAF X or something would be better, if you could afford it.

on the CM website it boasted 3 GPUs in the 922 case, but idk if they were on par w/ the 580's in size but TigerDirect also has a w7 bundle w/ the 932 full tower case bundle for $335.

Get the haf 932 over the haf 922. Before I got my case I had the haf 922 and hated it. It gets extremely dusty, and 1 580 was cramped in there, I can't imagine two!!

And yes, that mobo supports 2 way SLI

edit: it's cheaper on newegg

If you have the skills to put it together then buy everything separated and then put it together yourself, also avoid going for just one site, look around plan ahead diferente sites or even local stores have different prices, if you search a little, you can find good deals, even here in OCN trademarket theres great used(nearly new) hardware, and always take shipping in consideration, if you do this smartly you will end up saving a good amount of money that you can use to buy better parts, I have been putting my PC's together for the past 12 years, and that has saved me quite a bit of money.

Good Luck mate.

With $2000 to throw around, you can build yourself a much more potent system than what those Cyperpower guys can do.
