Crossfire 5850's, and don't worry about the case, just do some cable management or cut some holes in it and problem solved

As I am a folder I would go with either the 470 or the 480 and yes the Haf-x is a nice case...

LOL I love how this guy says the GTX 470 gets owned by a 5850 even after reviews were posted and with older drivers that show the 5850 losing on every review
LOL. I really hope you're trolling. Did you even read the reviews? It's the better card because it performs like gtx470 and sometimes better for less money, better overlcocking potential and everything else mentioned so far in this thread before you came in here and posted that stupid comment.

I cant really do crossfire with this board, I'd have to pay $20 for the extra long bridge since evga refuses to believe there is another graphics card company besides Nvidia. And even if I did 8x 8x doesn't really do much.

Plus i am sick of this case, not enough room to work in

Ok fine we get it 5850 is a god amongst graphics cards.

But this discussion is off topic, I am not going to buy a gtx 470 or a 5850.

gtx 480 or 5870 is what I am dealing with.

I'm glad you're starting to see clearly, it's a good card for the money but certainly not godly. The whole point of my post was if you want gtx470 performance then get the 5850, it's the better card.

Ahh that sucks, go for the 5870 then, as for a case I always thought the HAF series looked badass, and it sounds like you want more airflow so it should work out perfectly
