I finally got my new GPU'S! 2 EVGA 480GTX's

Recommended Posts

he should only need a 700 w psu for the load .. Ie an overclock of 4.4ghz on a 980x dual sli 480s draws a total of 697w... regardless the revolutions 85+ series i believe begin 950w soo no matter what hes safe... the evga classified has 3 16x 1 8 x lane ports on the limited edition which really isnt all that limited... and on the standard edition has 4 pcie 2 16x 2 8x... however the way the classified is setup along with a few other high end boards i believe there switchable and the power is given to the slot that is filled... and the slots are spilt up to 8x slots when more then 2 slots are filled... also the classified you can shut off pcie lanes to adjust things.. finally given the bandwidth of the 480gtx .. its just under the 8 limit so no matter what he will be fine and not bottleneck

 

 

i see alot of people just blurting out thigns with out doing research not just in this thread but in quite a few... do some research before you speak... thats just a general statement to anyone no fingers pointed...

haha I was just giving him a hard time. Can you even do a 3 monitor set up with only 2 nvidia cards? I haven't read much into them honestly.

Yeah I'm with Toasty on this one....if you are running a $5k setup then at LEAST go with 24"-28" monitors.....this range would have the exact performance of a 21" monitor as they are all available at 1920x1200.

I do believe that you don't know what you are talking about. 3GB is enough for any game, hell most games don't even use more than 1GB even with a 2560X1600 res, unless you crank the AA up to 16x, but even then your limited more by the processing capability of the card
