Help with C2D rig ideas (see page 5 for build) - Page 4

post #31 of 159
I think the gamer version is just a stripped down version specifically for gamers... There is also a 'sound' version. Not sure what is missing on either card

SLI... not sure if that will be necessary any time soon with those cards
Even with a resolution of 1680 x 1050 a single 8800GTX/S will run anything that we know with arrogant ease. However, game developers will catch up on this, and more demanding games will appear.

Personally, I don't see a need for SLI with these cards for at least a while.

This does not mean you should not get it I know I would if I had the money hahaha.. the lure of hi-tech and max performance is sometimes irrestistable.

Having that all said, the 750W silencer should be able to run SLI 8800GTS's (not sure about SLI 8800GTX's though)

No.. knowing Newegg, they'll wait a bit until there is sufficient stock. They were also quite late with Core 2 Duo

You could PM the Newegg Representative here on the forum:

Also, there is a Tankguys Representative here on the forum:

One of the X-FI cards has "X-RAM" which is extra RAM on the card that games can use. The games must be programmed to use this "X-RAM" though, so its usefulness is yet to be determined.

I think it's the upper models (Fatal1ty?) that have the X-RAM. Neither of the cheaper ones we talk about here has it....

Right. I wasn't specifically stating one of those cards had it, just merely one of the X-FI cards that Creative makes has it. I'm not too familiar with what it does exactly, I just remember reading about it somewhere.

I would only get the P5W DH Deluxe if you really plan to run Crossfire or SLI in the future. Otherwise, the P5B Deluxe is the better choice
