So I have a bit money waiting for a purchase


So I thought that I have three options that interest me:

1. a second 5870 (and yes I know my mobo is 16x/4x, but I'm going to upgrade in the future anyway) for about 380€

2. a watercooling system for my current 5870 for about 230€

3. a mini-ITX build for about 600€



What would you do?

4. a wc loop for your cpu to reach a higher oc on it.

a second gpu would be kinda pointless if you dont have the processor clocks to back it up in my personal opinion.

setting up a watercooling setup would also give me something to do with my time and thats what I need


Any idea what kind of temp drops I'd see?

15'C ~ 25'C drop on full load oc?

I vote for waiting another month to see if prices drop, saving up more money in the mean time, and buying another 5870.

Wouldn't his cpu bottleneck his system with two 5870s?

I say water-cool your CPU and Overclock it!

I'd build a Mini ITX, it's just so fun building things, especially computers. Good way to spend your time.
