  1. I have one more question: I am trying woundering about either sticking with the mobo that I have chosen or go with something different maybe a ASUS Rampage II Extreme. I dont know yet. And if I get either or would you recommend w/ EVGA (Killer M1 Nic) or w/ASUS (Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty) Thanks.
  2. Wow, thank you for opening my eyes to this, I will go SLI 280 GTX and get a 9600gt for phys. Just the FPS on 1600x1200 is just a huge improvement over tri-sli and I get to save close to $400 and I can get the p/s that I want which is the Ultra X3 ULT40064 1000-Watt, Thank you again for the added information please post more info if u need to.
  3. To ccokeman, I will have 240 rad and a 360 rad in my loop as I said I will not have the money for the GPU coolers just yet. To sdy284, estimate cost is around $3569.27 just for the hardware and software. The Cost of the watercooling items is around $902.31 hope this helps I have thought about waiting for the 295's to come out but they will be around $500+ each while I can get the 280's at $384.99 each from new egg and they already can run games at max settings.
  4. It will be for video games, with a small amount of video editing/rendering. I do have watercooling items that I plan on using also. Like I have a PA120.3 Rad that I will be using and the fans with that rad too.
  5. Hey all please review my order prior to me ordering the new machine, atm I am gonna just be W/C my CPU with plans to water cool the tri-sli but do not have the funds aviliable to make that happen. If there is anything you think I should change around please post links to it. Thanks.

  7. I am in looking for a new monitor I have a budget of about $600+/- $50 not including shipping. I am looking at this monitor. Hanns*G 28" (aka 27.5") http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1188561324689 btw price is not object up to the $600 +/- $50 mark. Unless you have a outstanding deal. (I like Dell and Viewsonic) Thanks.
  8. I have looked at a the VGA charts that where supplyed to me and it looks like that a single 8800 ultra default Hardware setting (non-oc) is a good choice, I also have herd that sometime SLI/Crossfire does not always work. But I think that chart is also just single card setting I would like to see a SLI/Crossfire type chart to, Thanks.
  9. sorry, I am using the Maximus Extreme the XFX 680i is a Bundled Item.
  10. Ok, here is what I am looking at getting, the mobo supports the crossfire, my question is should I get duel Diamonds or get a single 8800 ultra?

  13. Hail all, I have a quesiton, I have a upgrade copy of Vista Ultimate can I get it to be a 64bit system when I go to build my new system, I do have a copy of windows xp pro 64bit or will I need to get a new Vista System?
  14. Hail all, I am looking for assistance in finding a mobo and maybe changing around my ram a little, I was thinking of going with an ASUS Striker Extreme or maybe one of the new XFX/EVGA 780i mobo. If you have any other suggestions let me know thanks. And if you guys recommend going with a SLI rig or would you recommend buying the biggest card that I can get, If that is the case would you recommend going with a DDR3 10666 and a ASUS MAXIMUS EXTREME and a XFX/EVGA/BFG 8800 Ultra type card.
