I already have the case and PS to handle the single 4870 card...I will update the PS if and when I get the second card to X-Fire.

So comments anyone?

Because DDR3 really isn't worth the high-price of it. He would benefit more from 4GB of decent DDR2 then he would from 2GB of super fast DDR3.

I'd say it looks good so far.

Just don't give it a 500 watt "included with the case" Power supply.

Yeah what he said!

I just don't see the need for DDR3 right now...

It's the same PS I have in my rig sig...I will up it when and if I go to the Crossfire config with another 4870...

I would get a E8500 for extreme overclocking, unless your doing something other than gaming (Photoshop addict, file converting) I would get a superfast dual-core. Quad core won't be worth it.

Stick w/ the quad core! because if anything you have more l2 cache and if you are crazy and disable 2 core's you can O.C. the CRAP out of them. LOL. but stick w/ the Quad definately!

I never actually though about a dual core. But you think the quad is better?

I want to OC, and I game that's about it. Do you think that it would be better then?
