Hey OCN

after Xmas i'm going to ahve about $600 to spend on my comp
ive already decided to get some G.Skill CL7 1600Mhz Ram so i ahve another $500
to spend

Im just not sure what to get i could get a HexCore CPU and then Upgrade my GPU to something from the ATI range (that way i could use my 280GTX for PhysX) or i could just get 2 ATI cards and Xfire and have a PhysX OR just get a 570 GTX

any thoughts?

You could do 2 5770+280 as a cheap alternative. You could also get the 1090T/1075T since the 1100T drove the price down

Note that 1075T is not black edition. Perhaps you should go with a GTX 570 if you don't wish to buy anything else, that'd be a great, great choice.

im thinking of waiting for the ATI cards because then later on i can Xfire and still have the 280 for physX theres no down side

the 570s are like 700 here in aust :S

*580s! not 570s

1x 6970, or 2x 6870.

i'd suggest going and spending the money on stuff you never buy normally. in other words, a $100 SSD, and maybe a nice set of headphones and a sound card. and a 6870. that way you get to have a more balanced and complete upgrade, instead of just one for games

all its used for is games and movies - its connected to my lounge TV so yeah - i have a laptop for my Uni work

I was considering a SSD but i already have a Raptor and i wont see the benefits because of all the games i'd have to store them on seperate hdd and it just wouldnt make a difference - or would it?
