Overkill? People, have you played SIMS 2? Way back when, it ate up any GeForce 6 card, including the 6800Ultra (which is what the 7600GT is, effectively). And whats wrong with spending $50 more and getting almost twice the graphics power?
- Better Power Supply. - The Forton is one of the best ones out there, and should be more than enough to handle his system specs, including that 7900GT. But since he has money to burn;
Antec Truepower 550W
- Bigger case - Its fine. He doesn't exactly have a $1500 budget, so a cheaper case is needed. And its a good case to boot, not something to be concerned with.
- 7800GT - The 7900GT is pocket change more than the 7800GT. And with the performance of a 7800GTX, I can't believe you'd even consider changing it. And a 7900GT in a $1150 system is...almost unheard of buddy.
Mole; Nope. He wants playable framerates at max graphics? He wants that. And have you not read his first post? He has 5 other games, and if they're anything like Sims 2, he'll want that. And what do you people think, he's never going to buy another game as long as he lives? Come on people, I don't make mistakes like this.
