Can't really go water because my case is not ideal for water, else I'd lose all the airflow of my bottom fans for my 6970's frown.gif

Looks like EyeFinity might need to wait...

I've only got 200€, which would be enough for one of the Acer monitors (144-150€) but not for the 2nd one...

Therefor I may have to cancel EyeFinity and wait until summer to get 2 more Monitors...

What else could I buy for my PC?

I have around 200€, so far these were the options that came to my mind:

- Buy a Corsair H70 + x2 Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM + Samsung F3 1TB
- Buy a Corsair AX850 (Although my PSU is more than fine for my current needs)
- Buy x2 Accelero Xtreme Plus + x2 vr001 heatsink kits for the 6970's...
- Save the money for future upgrades like Ivy Bridge and 28nm GPU's.

I'll be happy to hear more advices that I didn't list, any suggestions will be taken into consideration smile.gif

Thank you all in advance! rolleyes.gif

I don't need another sound card, PSU could be a possibility, but I'm more convinced on the 1st and 3rd options smile.gif
