Need some opinions and help on getting a rig - Page 2

post #11 of 12
As far as that motherboard goes, I think it will be just fine. Do you plan to run a dual-GPU setup down the road? If yes, then go with a different board. If you like a single card setup, then I don't really see a problem. It's a solid budget board that will get the job done. It's a smaller board, at 9.6x 9.6, so you could always get a micro case and make a more portable PC for LAN's and such.

As far as which GPU to get, I say go with a 7950. They are just as fast as any other GPU out there and can overclock pretty well. I picked up a 670 FTW 2 weeks ago and I loving it, but I was really looking to go AMD this time around. I had my eye on the Sapphire Vapor-X, but it was sold out on Newegg for quite some time and I ended up driving to my local Microcenter, which doesn't have much for high end AMD.

Ohh okay thanks , that might save me some cash , I choose the 7970 as in Singapore you cant find the 7950 vapor x or the 950 mhz ver anywhere which made me think about spending extra on the 7970 for a card that would last maybe 2-3 years tongue.gif
