$1,000 upgrade - Page 2

post #11 of 14
water cool the 2500k....maybe swap those 6950's for a 7950/7970, too. i'd personally just stick to liquid cooling.

As far as watercooling goes don't get the rasa kit.

Don't get me wrong it's great for a budget wcing kit.

But if you have the means a custom loop is the best way to go, especially with a 1k budget.

Alright, looks like i'll be getting a watercooling kit for starters then, and we'll see what happens when nepal is released.
Thanks for all of the input guys.

as far as a monitor goes, i was thinking about upgrading since this monitor has a strange black stripe up in the top corner that won't go away, and i was looking at some dell monitor that's around 400-500 dollars, but everyone said that it would eat my 6950 alive if i did that, so what exactly would i need to run a monitor like that efficiently?

2 7950s will destroy anything you put at it.
