Leaves you enough to pick up the R9 290x when it comes out.

Pretty nice build, but since he has 1200-1300, would at least go with an H80i for the cooler, and some decent 2133MHz memory from Newegg for like $77. Still plenty for a decent card, doubt he needs a 290x for his needs. A 280X or GTX 770 will be more than enough.

I saw a sapphire 7950 reference design with the 7970 pcb and cooler for 200.000 and 189.99 AR. So I plan on just getting 2 of them. How much power would I need to run them? And if I wanted to oc them both and my CPU how many wattage would I need?

750 watts sould do it unless you do crazy overclocks on them

Cooler Master V750S if you can find it

if you want 2 of them that is another story

but will be very powerful to pay all games max biggrin.gif


for 7970 Don't get the reference design it really loud check the video it have good review on that gpu and i suggest getting the asus DcuII they are really good cards but i prefer Nvidia for the physics games it have nice effects so my opinion goes towords Gtx 770 or 760

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrKEzzN89QU


But the gtx 770 is not that good value to be honest it is 400$ and the 7970 Cost 300$ and almost same performance maybe coz of new drivers when the video came out

but have the new features and advanced physics so you must chose ,just to give you idea I have Asus Gtx 680 Dcu II and it is same gpu as Gtx 770 and almost both same performance And I play all games max on 1080p

Two 7950's is a solid choice right now, I wouldn't go with reference designs though you will be disappointed. You can get this Sapphire for $200 after rebate @ Newegg.com

For a nice CPU overclock, and two decently overclocked 7950's I would look at a 750-800W PSU. Which will be more than enough.
