Some upgrades.

Recommended Posts

Ok guys thanks for the input it's been helpfull yeah i'll go with the x4 965 BE I have a Hyper 212+ cooler so I should be able to oc pretty well. More than likely i'll get the 570 i'm leaning towards EVGA cause of their lifetime warranty. So I really don't need to get 4 more gb of ram. I have 64 bit Windows 7 and it recognizes 8 gb im pretty sure but will it make a difference in games?

Yeah the 212+ will easily take your 965 to the point of diminishing returns which is all a cooler should have to do. Glad you decided AWAY from buying an EVGA with the only reason being lifetime warranty (since we see you don't keep your graphics cards for a lifetime ;))

 

I echo what everyone else has been saying.

 

It's hard to say which is better between the 570 and the 7850: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=518 , the 7850 seems to be a far greater value and is more efficient while the 570 wins in a few select games, most they are indistinguishably close

Exactly - I don't recommend EVGA one bit. My EVGA GTX 570 runs hotter than I would like and their customer service was horrible. Overpriced and full of themselves.

Nice one OP. That's probably the best 570 you can get: cool,silent and heavily overclockable card, though you seem to have surpassed your initial budget (as we all do generally :P ).

Now besides the subject can anyone tell me how to change that message under your avatar? just having "Member" got a little stale.

Maybe the guy with the 260 lived in a sauna. You never know.

At least you didn't have the CEO of Swiftech telling you that 130+ C VRM temperatures were "okay and safe" for a 4870X2 with watercooling.

 

God I hate that guy. I nearly had to eat the cost of a Swiftech Caldera setup simply because Gabe (the CEO) is a complete douchebag and won't admit fault or wrongdoing for anything.

:blink: WOOOW :blink:

 

I had a hard enough time not calling the EVGA guy a moron but your phone call definitely would have broke me. Why was the CEO answering a customer complaint anyway?
