I said that because usually items at Newegg are a bit cheaper on the US website, plus shipping is cheaper too.

The PSU is there because the difference of price between a 850w and a 1000w was innexistant , and better have a good one as it's one of the things that you can keep for lot of time. As for the case, it's Lian-Li so it's going to last a long time, while still eing relativelly cheap and performing.

in the 850 watts section i find the Seasonic SS-850HT 850W 80Plus Silver Certified Power Supply 120$ i most cheap and reliable option again its not a modular nor its look are so good but the performance is the best i guess redface.gif
as for Case in ~$100+ i would go for something like
cheapest to expensive

My old 6970 lightening got an average of ~42 fps at a core clock of 1050mhz and a memory clock of 1450mhz. This was on medium with all aliaing turned off (except for 2x AF) on 1080px3 eyefinity. The screen size doesn't matter, you could be using 3 1200p 23" which'll be harder to push than 3 42" 720p tv's.

You'll be playing on low settings in BF:3 to get over 30 fps which looks worse than bf 1942 console versions.

Really a 6870 isn't ideal at all,even if crosssfired for eyefinity. You're better off getting one 6950/6870 depending on your budget and running high settings on one single 1080p screen.

Tbh eyefinity is only "worth it" if you have loads of cash and are prepared to spend a ridiculous amount. The only time it's worth it in BF:3 for me was when I was in a jet and I was shooting down a vehicle and I noticed another one in my peripheral vision.

I only played games at 1080p, but I used my other monitors for normal browsing/work/watching a video and having a FB window open while reading an article/forum.

If you do decide to get the 6870/6950 I'd recommend you get the 2gb version/s, it's necessary for higher resolutions and for turning up details at 1080p to max.thumb.gif

Whatever you do have fun biggrin.gif.

Edit:

Everything you have there is compatible, even the motherboard biggrin.gif, but you don't really need the fan controller. Just get low speed intake fans and for your CPU fan/fans connect them to the motherboard to be controlled by pwm/voltage.

Also use the $25 to get the 2gb version of the 6870 smile.gif.

Alright if I do end up going with the 6950 is it a good idea for me to get the 1GB version? Or does the Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2048MB sound better? Thanks for the info. biggrin.gif
