Time again (GPU upgrade) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
Two monitors are old flat screens I just use to extra desktop space, 4:3 17ers. I use one to track my messengers, ventrillo or music and the other to usually to watch movies, browse websites or keep guides/info handy. The middle screen is a 20" wide that i game on. I plan to use one of the 8800's as a phyx card and have it run the two side monitors.

Are you planning on upgrading for the 20" and 17" monitors listed in your sig?

In my next build I'm using my 20 as a side monitor and getting a new main for gaming.

Some people complain about having issues with ATi/AMD cards, but I have been lucky enough to never encounter something I couldn't fix. That's something to consider though cause it definitely feels like luck of the draw. If you don't want to take "the risk" then stick with a 570 or even a 560.

Edit - nvm you already bought it, grats and hope you enjoy

I take it thats from experience. I had a GTX 460 768mb and everyone was telling how much better a 6850 was, good lord joke was on me. Its a little better with a major overclock. Think Im gonna go 5870.

Thanks for all your help! And sorry for the double post. I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Yeah, GTX 570 is the best your gonna get for the money, dont listen to "get a 6950 and unlock it".
