Thank you.
Sorry but I have another question.
How far I can overclock my CPU using Liquid-Cooling?

Depends how far you want to go, with liquid cooling it can go pretty far.. What speed do you want it at? You also have to consider stability..

2 x 6850s in crossfire. its about 20-30% better than a 6970. in terms of a single card, probably a 6950 unlocked to a 6970 or a gtx 570. i saw a pretty cheap 570 the other day.

I was just about to pick up another XFX 6870 for the $40 MIR until I read the first NE review:

"I buy tons of hardware. I use tons of MIRs, I have ot the process down pat. XFX uses a rebate media promotions comapny called Rebate-Zones, i.e. Hegelson Enterprises. This is not a company of mental giants. They mess up constantly, and have a slant for denying large ticket rebates. Well guess what, they denied me. I have photo copies of the rebate, CLEARLY showing I sent in the appropriate form. Well, I guess they needed my $40 more than XFX needed my continued "

So far so good on my first XFX product, but I'm not going to push my luck and get an Asus 6870 when it hits that price..

Probably the 6850.
Many 1GB 460s are still over or right on $200 before shipping.

If you look at the latest benchmarks from TechPowerUp, you can see that the best bang for the buck card is the 5770!

I got my rebate from them ~3 weeks early compared to their estimated date.

6870, great performance for the price if you can find one under 200.
