Help with Computer Rig!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! My name is Pablo, and I am new here =D… and well I have some questions on making my new computer rig and hope you can help me with… all suggestions, recommendations and everything is welcome =).. (don’t know if this is the correct or best place to place this post, sry if is not)

most concern about the power supply…and well graphics card...
I am thinking on making my rig into 3-Sli (hope I can make)... and well dont know what Power Supply to buy... I dont think 850w can do it (well to 3 cards that is.. but 2 I think a 850W one can do it).. correct me... so.. was thinking on a 1000w (to go with 3 cards)... and also with this one also power the whole rig...

Also with 3 graphics card.. can I put a sound card also? Like there will space to put it?…Considering my motherboard… EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard ….


For the Video Card I want to go with a eVGA because of the Lifetime warranty…(plus I have a 6800GT and its been awesome) and also I consider that they have great cards…
So I am looking to buy 3 x 9800GTX… and well I think 3 of this would be so awesome to have and well if I cant at least 2 would be great also.. all this compare to 2 x 8800 GTS (since if I buy 2 of these later on I cant make 3 Sli, and well have to sell them and buy again new cards…)

So.. the power supply I am looking at these ones but don’t know which one to take considering all of this I am saying and also the rest of the rig (bottom are all specs and parts)…

wich one should I take, wich one you recommend, wich one do you suggest for the whole rig.… also go Modular or non Modular (the only Modular are the CORSAIR 1000W and the Antec TPQ-850 850w)


another question of mine is that I don’t understand the 6+2Pin thing.. what is it??
