New Rig for gaming - Page 5

post #41 of 70
I say you wait for the Next gen CPU.

Just get the Gigabyte Assasin and SLI GTX580s and an SSD and your set to go... even for another 3 years..

since you dont want to water cool i suggest NH-D14 or a SilverArrow

GPU brand = MSI(AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE) and Gigabyte, and these have the non reference coolers that ACTUALLY cool the card. totally Forgot teh ASUS direct Cu II which you should TOTALLY get!

How much better its hard to tell as performence varies in various benchmarks,
but its obvious that 3x 6970 is quite better than 2x gtx580,

for amd gpu get from,
1st>msi
2nd>asus
3rd>sapphire

msi hd6970 costs $320 at newegg where as gtx580 costs $500,that means 3x hd6970 is cheaper than 2x gtx580

nice to see u are going with 3x hd6970,
hope u liked my help :-)

I would aslo suggest u to order a good cpu cooler like corsair h70,with this cooler u can easily obtain 4ghz on your cpu,
I just saw at newegg that crucial c300 is a great ssd
