So, with Rift out and TESV Skyrim supposedly coming out at the end of this year, I am wanting to build a new computer. As usual, I am always torn on which video card to get and which CPU to get. I will link all the parts for completeness and evaluation.
Motherboard - ASUS M4A79XTD
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965
RAM (might go with an 8gb setup...) - G.SKILL 4GB
PSU - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W
Case - Antec Nine Hundred
Video Card - Torn between a GTX470 and a GTX460:
I have read that the 470 is anywhere from 20-30% faster...but can someone explain the free performance deal with Card 2? It is $100 cheaper after all MIRs.
Thanks for the assistance on the video cards and the feedback on the rest.
