New build maybe, Need Opinions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys. I made a wishlist on Facebook.And I've been writing all my ideas here on Overclock about a possible upgrade but anyway, I would like some opinions on a future possible build. I wanna sell Le Monstre soon so I can get something even better and more compact.

Heres Idea 1 (GTX 460):

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=16791546

And Idea 2 (HD 5670x2 running in Crossfire or CrossfireX):

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=15447585

The Builds Are Very Familiar, except the Motherboard and Video Card(s). Im having a dilemma of choosing between a Crossfire HD 5670, Single GTX460, or a Single HD 6850. I would love to stick with the Phenom Dual Core as long as my motherboard is a ATX board that has a CPU Unlocker. So yea, Whats your opinion Overclock.net ?

i vote for single 6850 above all, seems to be the best choice out of those options.
1 card is always easier to deal with than 2 (im running xfire and its not bad just a little more finnicky because of drivers and overclocking and some games dont even scale with xfire, etc...)

this should be better :
MSI Mobo+MSI 460 245$\\205$ AR
Antec 650w PSU+Case 120$ after NZXT promo code (u wanted compact right?)
CPU PhII 955+Cooler Corsair A50 168$\\148$ AR
RAM PNY 1600Mhz CL8 55$\\35$ AR
HDD Samsung F3 65$

total : 663$ before rebate , 583$ after rebate
what u get :
quad core cpu
GPU with more overclocking head room
more reliable PSU that can handle SLI 460 in future
better ram
amazing compact case with handle with 3 fans , bottom PSU and cable management
decent cpu cooler

OH and Guys. I think I made my Final Decision.

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=22858548

I will do just fine with a Unlocked Dual Core and 768MB GTX 460. I also own a 9600GSO 768MB I could slap in the 2nd PCI Slot so I could run it as a Dedicated Physxs card. Thanks Again Everyone
