All your components are compatible if that's what your asking help for. Your route for loop system is fine as well. I see no better way to have it set up. thumb.gif

Personally, I would keep those two cards and go for a higher resolution monitor plus watercooling (if finances are fine). If you just plan on only gaming, your not going to need two 770's on a 1080P monitor.

Do you struggle with fps on current games with those 7950s?

You don't have money for a higher resolution, but you do for two GTX 770's? I don't understand, lol. The Asus PB278Q (2560x1440) is $630, and two GTX 770's would be $800. If you can max out graphics in the games you play and have no loss in FPS, then upgrading to two GTX 770's wouldn't make any sense. I would water cool the components and overclock them, or like I said, pick up a higher resolution monitor.

I try and tell this to people I know: Don't waste money on an upgrade, if your not going to be taking advantage of the bonus it offers. Ie: [Person A] buys a GTX 780, but only plays Minecraft and a few non-demanding RTS's.



...and sorry, I don't know anything about AMD drivers and their problems with crossfire. I've been with Nvidia from the start. thumb.gif



Note: I'm not completely sure if your allowed to display items your selling like that. With this forum, you need 35 rep. points to be allowed to sell items, and in the proper Sell/Buy section. If you don't get pm'd about it though, go for it. smile.gif

lol you misunderstood me, right now i have 300$ and two 7950 so if i sell the 7950s for 800 i will buy 2 770 and a nokia lumia 920
but if i didn't sell them i'll stick with water cooling

Ohh, my mistake. Good Luck selling the cards. thumb.gif $400 each is quite pricey for a used 7950 (even with WB on) but hopefully you'll be able to find some buyers.

Hi,

Personally I wouldn't use a bayres/pump combo, and would be more inclined to position the pump near the bottom of your case.

I think a fill-port would be useful with that setup too.

I found this photo elsewhere but is pretty much what I would do... with Dremel in hand. 360mm rad would be better, and it's not like you are going to use that space anyways.



With this setup, you won't be going back to upgrade the W/C bits, just the other parts when they get too slow. Future-proof!

Cheers,

Del Boy
