This is comparable to the Gigabyte I mentioned http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131980

Thanks WR6133 for the info. So 2Gb would suffice, for now. I will take a look at the prices for the 3GB and 4GB and see what the difference is.

I looked at the Asus board you recommended and it looks great. Has some good features for what I need it to do. Greatly appreciated.

In reference to the GeForce GTX 780 VPU , The Graphics card power is 250W. The Minimum recommended system power is 600W. Now, if I do get a 600W power supply my worry would be that I am using a large percentage of the total power supply's power therefore the fan on the power supply would be moving at a high RPM maybe creating a lot of noise. Just my thinking, I could be wrong??

C3 at Very High and 4MSAA reached 1900MB.

the only reason i bought the 7970 is 'cause it was on sale ($360 with C3, BI, and TR).

Thanks for the info rdr09. Interesting.

I was thinking about using the Corsair Hydro Series H100i water cooler. Any ideas or suggestions.

What I am looking for is something quiet that cools well since this computer will be on for very long periods of time.
Thanks Pontiac GTX

Thanks PontiacGTX. It is about 70.00 dollars more than the Corsair Hydro Series H100i but the Cooler Master is quiet at Fan Noise 20.5 dB(A)


I will definitely consider it.
