Sold my laptop!! 1300-1400 budget for new quad core! - Page 4

post #31 of 40
I think the 9600GTs in SLI, would fair a bit better than HD 3870s in Crossfire. Plus it's cheaper:

But please correct me, if I'm wrong about this.

Its up in the air. They both are so close in performance. You might also want to consider that ATI's next generation of video cards are going to be going for the mid range cards. So NVIDIA will have the better performing cards for quite a while. But you would need a 780i board for that...

No Sli and CF are both bad but since the new 9600GT's have come out i would go with 9600GT Sli since they are the next gen cards. Im not sue how they perform against the HD3870 in CF but i know they are better than the HD3870X2 so they should be better than the HD3870 CF. so the build would be:

Processor:Q6600 From your friend $210
MOBO:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188024 Evga 780i $250
RAM:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146565 $40
HDD:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148262 7200.10 250GB $70
CASE:
POWER SUPPLY:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6017&Tpk=DA750 DA750 $185
SOUND CARD:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102006 X-fi Xtreme gamer $50
GPU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130328 9600GT Sli $360

Total is 1165!

you could probably get 8800GTS 512 Sli!

either get the samsung 226Bw or 245BW

one is 22" and one is 24"
