What do you think of this SETUP?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
There is pretty not much to do to increase performance, so I've decided for a QUAD SSD RAID 0 Array backed by a RAID 1 array. I don't really play games (other than to monitor FPS, studying so not much time, etc and I'm really just an enthusiast plus there is so much driver issues with this setup.... ) so I'm waiting for the 7000 series or when the 6990 comes out as I'm using trifire 5970 + 5850 which yields pretty nice GPU scaling: http://www.overclock.net/ati/641815-...0-benches.html

So what do you think I can do to increase performance for an AMD machine. Can't be bothered going to Intel until I get some more money

what are you doing that calls for that kind of speed? and if you dont play games why do you need high end gaming cards? if this is a render/ work rig then a quadro or ati firestream workstation card would be better.

Water cooling and get an extra 400 mhz out of your 1090T?

The cards were from last year; used to be a gamer.

My UD5 has not been picked up yet, as I have stated the 4GHz is a previous OC from my 790FX MB and I have no experience in liquid cooling plus I don't really need it. Might look into one day.
