How Much power Does it use???? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Just to reinforce my earlier post, you really don't need 3 high end gpu's like that. Only reason to have more than 1 gpu any more is benching or folding. A single 6870 will max almost any game you can throw at it (save for maybe max AA on games like Metro 2033 or something crazy intense like that). The 6870 comes in just a hair ( like 2-3fps) lower in beches to my gtx 560 at stock clocks and I have zero problems streaming a 1080p movie to my tv while simultaneously playing games on my pc maxed out. Nothing has made me have to tune a games settings down yet.

If you want 3D.... go with NVIDIA for sure. NVIDIA is directly support 3D with drivers and hardware. AMD is relying on 3rd party software vendors to support 3D.
Once again...

Technically yes with the wireless xbox 360 pc dongle but I wouldn't recommend it. Split screen gaming on a tv works 10x better with a console. PC games are made to be played w/ mouse and keyboard and usually require alot of configuring and trial and error to get custom gamepad controls to work properly w/ a console controller.

This...

And the same goes for split screen. You will end up having to use some 3rd party software that will almost definitively give you problems. (at least in my experience it always has.)
