How stupid would this be. - Page 2

Sorry I forgot to add that I was going to spend $1000 on the GTX 580s, and then a $200 psu.

1. Before upgrading anything it would be wise to invest in a quality power supply.

2. Are you really using a 15" CRT? There's no point in upgrading the graphics card when running a resolution that low.

Edit - In that case, you're way better off with just one 580, and a 2500k/New mobo and ram. Way, better off.

I'd buy one 580 and use the rest of the budget to upgrade the rest of the rig.

I would just start from a clean slate, it feels more exciting to do a full new build. Have you considered waiting for Socket 2011?

I really wanted to fold on the two 580s but I keep getting people saying its hard to fold on two cards

I would buy a single 580 and upgrade your system first if I was you. You can SLI later once you get the cash but you will definitely get a bigger upgrade going with the CPU upgrade first.

I could wait it really does not matter to me, I kinda wanted to do the two 580 things as a experiment.

I think I am going to keep both my systems the same, and just upgrade the core 2 quad one with a 560.
