What do you think about this build, it's my first! - Page 2

nVidia's Vision Surround requires you to have 2 video cards if you're going to use 3 displays.

If you only plan on using 2 displays the GTX460 should be fine, but if you want to do Vision Surround with 3 displays you'll need a board with more than just a single PCI-e slot to put in the 2nd video card.

But honestly if you don't care about 3D or PhysX then you should be fine with the HD5770.

Good luck.

it said pci express 16x x 2

does it?
it does, I really didnt realize it til i looked on newegg. Itll run at x16 for a single card and x8/x8 for two.

If you really wanna stay with ATI graphics though I would get at least a 5850

I want the 3d, but nobody has told me whether it will strain your eyes!!!
Physx looks pointless, rather have a higher fps, then random leaves coming at me lol.

Really the only positive I can think for you about going nvidia is that I know Metro2033 run a little better on the nvidia cards with that tesselation enabled... but other than that I'd say stick with AMD/ATI

Also, I don't know much about that motherboard, but just wanna make sure you can OC good on it because that 1055T is begging for 4Ghz if your board can handle it

I'm not sure how could the thermal take frio is I would get something like the noctua nh-d14 or the H70 if you want to reach 4ghz...here's a good link which shows the best cpu coolers and best budget cpu coolers
http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...ered-here.html
So, I think you should go with a different video card since this is a primarily gaming rig

Also for the power supply I would ask people in the power supply forum because you don't need 750 watts I would get a better quality 650 watt even though the power supply you listed is good to...your system probably uses about 400watts or less

Edit: also that picture you posted it could be biased. I've never heard of that cpu cooler and I would get one of the more popular ones that I listed....just check the link i gave you
the CM 212+ is a great cpu for a budget cooler but it might be hard to reach 4ghz on it
Periods. Use them.

And as you can see from page 1, the Frio is a beast.
