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.

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.
