Default Re: The Future Computer

yeah sorry for confusion must have copied the links twice, had so much homework lately its hard to get time to squeeze in some posts, i was rushing.

zmatt is totally correct by the way, you should go with two 4890s in crossfire, that is better then a gtx295 in most cases since crossfire scales better. and is cheaper, not sure why it didnt cross my mind before.
the HIS ones here at good price, make sure you use the 5% off coupon - HIS Hightech H489F1GP Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

as for cooling, go with the core contact and the bracket or the dark knight, i would go with the sunbeam CC since it has great thermal paste as well and is nearly as good as the best cooler, the ultra 120 extreme. You only need to cool your cpu everything else will be fine as is.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

I7 930 @ 4GHz : Noctua D-14
Gigabyte X58A-UD7 : Asus GTX 480
G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case
Silverstone Strider Plus 1Kw : Sony DRU-870s Optical
Samsung P2350 Monito
