first monster build - Page 8

post #71 of 162
In this case , I can recommend the eVGA 9800 GX2 SSC. I recommend Striker II extreme from Asus for 790i ultra or you can save some money by going eVGA/XFX 790i ultra. I think it would be best for you to have 4GB of DDR3 (4X1GB or 2X2GB) [OCZ/Kingston/Corsair].

which one is better better for overclocking, also what module overclocks better the 4X1GB or the 2X2GB?

Both memory sizes/bundles will overclock the same as RussianGrimmReaper said and thats true. The Striker II Extreme is jam-packed with overclocking features , but the reference (eVGA/XFX) boards have less features and cost about 100$ less.

can I run the 2 GX2 SLI on the striker II

Yes you can. Its called a QUAD sli configuration on the Striker II extreme because there is 4 GPU's involved. The drivers are pretty new as a matter of fact for quad-sli but you can only do it in Vista.

any other suggestion for this build?
post #78 of 162
No problem glad to help. I thought I'd clarify the 9800GX2 is two gpu's (two 8800 GTS 512mb) put together to produce the 9800 GX2. The 9800 GTX is a single GPU solution. Thermalright 120 Extreme with a good fan is my other recommendation and maybe a WD 300GB VR.

thanks I'll keep that in mind, I though the 9800GX2 was made by 2 9800 GTX put together
