Hey guys this is my first attempt at building a gaming machine. I'm looking to spend no more than $1500 on everything and I think I've come up with a pretty good setup. However, I have a few concerns and I would greatly appreciate any and all help as I'm looking to order this thing in the next few days.
1. I am torn between 1 Radeon 4870 and 2 Radeon 4850s. Which do you think would perform better for a 22" monitor at 1680 by 1050? Which would give me better FPS?
2. I don't know a heck of alot about Mobos and I want one that supports crossfire because even if I only get the single 4870, I may buy another one a few months down the road and want to have that option.
3. Any help with monitor and case suggestions would be nice as I don't know much about these. I want a good functional case that looks nice too, but it can't cost a ton.
Anyway...here's what I've put together so far.
Thanks in advance guys!
