My SLI 570's go over 90 degrees in BF3 (gotta work on that). I can't imagine how hot a pair of 480's would get.

Yea thats the other thing. I can get the 480s but will need to get a different power supply. I found a supplemental powersupply that would run it for 50 that isn't bad.

The thing about the 480s too i could find a third one.

But they again I could get a 2nd 7970 when they go down to like $200 in a while and run crossfire which would beat tri sli 480s and prolly cooler. Its hard to decide.

When it comes to eyefinity vs surround as far as support and gaming are they about the same? I know you have to screw around with the display adapters to dvi with eyefinity.

I would just buy into Sandy Bridge with a Core i5-2500k and P67 motherboard. 1366 is way too old to invest in, the core i7 920 although it has HT support is really weak in terms of single-core performance, and if you buy into a 2 generation old line of cpu's it's just going to get older faster and not be much of value in a few years.
Just go for Sandy.

if your looking to save money then go the 1366, but i would definitly check the for sale threads here

2500k plus MB $250
Here

there's deals out there to net you a significant boost in performance if your willing to go used.

also if you are or can find someone to grab you a few things from micocenter you could go the 2500k route and then sell off your gpu and cpu to recoup some of the cost

Ehhh, not really. Try running Dolphin 4x internal res with DSP LLE Audio on thread with SMG2 and that 930 will beg for mercy. I have a 920 clocked to 3.8GHz and it hardcore struggles in that situation. My 2600k at 4.5GHz and 3820 at 4.3GHz have little issue with that scenario and both SB chips still have quite abit of OC headroom to spare.

Not that bad if you have good airflow and a nice fan curve setup. My cards don't exceed 80c with 80% fan.

Yea I was thinking of water cooling the gpus in the future. I have a set up already for the cpu with a 120mm rad and looking for a bigger rad setup.

But thad adds cost.

Thats a good deal on the 2500k. Usually its 160 for the cpu and then 150 ish for the board. Vs $230 for a 1366 setup. I sent him a pm. I love used

Captain 318 how does a 2500k handle that vs your 2600k? Do you play surround on your 480s?

The 2500k should do just aswell since the program doesn't utilize HT.
Never tried surround. I'm a single display guy.

So what is the major difference between the 2600k and 2500k. Is it just HT?

Still that's like 150-170 and I can get a 1366 setup with a rampage matx board for $250 total . That what I was thinking. How much gaming would a 920 at 4ghz be versus my core duo at 4ghz. I know faster.

First I'm not sure if that means you do have a Microcenter near you or not because you can get a 2500k and an Asus P8Z77-V LX for $275. Second, I moved from an e8400 to a 920 and while I cant give you any solid numbers or anything it did help in gaming. However it wasn't nearly as big a difference as when I switched from an 8800 gtx to a gtx 470, so I'd probably suggest you go with the vid card upgrade first if you want to see notable gaming improvements. I just upgraded to a 3570k but I'm still setting everthing up so I cant say how muh of a boost I'll see over my 920 which I had overclocked to 3.8ghz.

Basically yes, in game you won't see a difference.
