New Build, need a little insight. - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Thread Starter 
At the moment I think I'm going to hold off on a new monitor (1080p 120hz or a 1440p oc'd to 120hz). I managed to grab a gtx 780 acx off newegg last night before they sold out in 30seconds flat and I'll test my build in game on current settings with my 27in 60hz monitor, I figure if I can get close to 120 fps then it might just be better for me to go with a good 120-144hz monitor with lightboost and save some cash.

Though if I could get 80-90 ish fps with sli 780's at 1440p it's almost too tempting not to just go for it, I love my eyecandy (4xAA is good enough) but I love fps just as much if not more. It seems in either case I would need sli 780's anyway to get the most out of either build. I've spent the last week going back and forth trying to decide and it's killing me tongue.gif

Not saying what you have is bad or anything but how about a modular PSU if you are going with two video cards would leave less of a cables mess in your PC

Are you aware that you can buy new cables for your AX in 4 colors no less

EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 is the card I got since it most resembles the twinfrozr cooler from my 580 lightning and will hopefully run a bit cooler then the stock blower versions.

That I actually did not know about, I never really got into cable sleeving because it's too much work for me, but if they have affordable pre-sleeved in red that might be something i'll have to do down the road to make my build a little more pleasing to the eye.

Note you need Gen 1 cables for your AX850 if you buy Gen 2 cables you could end up with a PC full of the magic blue smoke

Those look pretty good and would go perfect with my red and black theme, i'll have to pick a set of those up later down the road.
