Well if they came with heatsinks on as stock i would say yeah, i just chopped the radiator thingies off the stock copper pipes and used those, look better and look like they give a much better cooling.

Thats a fine build the ocz 8500 sli ram has been tested specifically with the 680i boards and gives excellent results.

The rest of your build is fine except i would recommend an 8600gt rather than 2 7900gs and then add a second later for sli. more value for the money

I was debating that. Some coworkers with sli rigs went that rout and said that it was harder to find a matching gpu after the fact. My graphic needs are minimal. This is sad, but I was going sli for the coolness factor. Plus there’s the spouse factor of “I thought you bought a new computer!”. I put a few question out there about ram, but did not get a response so I look at was being done by others and there results. I’m looking to get about 3.5 GHz after I add some additional cooling. Perhaps I will get the bug and try to beat the 4 GHz mark I’m grateful for all input.

Then again the XFX (PVT84JUDD3) 8600GT 256MB is only $10 more per card? I'm have used nvidia many (many) years back and it was a pain getting drivers to I turned the ATI and have been using it ever since. This is the first nvidia card in a long time and coworkers mentioned that I should go with the x900 series over any other for is is the more mature in the series as well as to stay away from the 100-500 & 800 series. Does that hold any water?

You'd be better off going for a single 8800GTS 320MB/640MB over 7900GS 256MB SLi.
post #1140 of 5659
How would a single 8800GTS 320MB (640 is too much $) would compare to 8600GT 256MB in SLI?
