Graphics Card Dilemas for my build . Please help me

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay here is the deal guys...

What I am working with is a 980x build in which I would like to overclock it to around ~4GHz. I have a Corsair 850AX power supply on order so I need something that will work with this power supply and overclocking of the processor.

I am using the computer for very intensive video encoding/gaming (mainly Crysis and other games that are GPU/CPU intensive).

I already have one EVGA Superclocked GTX 465. I have another on order for SLI, but I was told that the power supply might not work well with that since they are heat intensive cards.

What would be my best bet as far as money? Keep in mind I have one GTX 465 already that I would really like to use and not just use as a paper weight.

Please let me know what you think as far as a graphic card/graphic cards that I should go with.

Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!

that PSU will be fine. those PSUs are tested at 50*C ambient temps. whoever told you that really exaggerated the heat output, or they have been working with some really flaky PSUs.

if the 465s are heat monsters, how did anything keep the 480s running?

youre fine.
