Default ordering friday.

ok so by friday my bank acoutn ballance will be 670$ 68$ is going toward my phone bill and 22.37 on late fees for gta 4 lol. any way here are my options order just my gtx280 and gte my water loop next pay. or my next option is order a gtx260 and a water loop this pay, with another gtx260 next pay and a new psu. what to do. ooh that or i can order a new paintball marker for 499.99 i foudn a wgp karnivor with an e2 blade new for that price. i might also have an extra 40$ to spend on a new ram kit. what are yoru recomendations? btw i just wana play crysis with 2x or x4 aa at 1280x1024, i will be upgrading to this monitor soon tho.NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Great Technology, Service and Selection.

i know the gt260 sli will be the best perfoming but will it be worth it price wise. im sure one gtx280 can handle anything thrown at it for a good while. btw these will be my last upgrades until nehalem. and im hoping i may be able to salvage the gpu. also im trying to be reasonable with out being a hard ware hore lol. my new job has me loaded with lots of $$$ my only bill per month is about 60$ lol otehr then that im makign 2k per month my fatehr has even offerd me to drop out of school and finish my last year home schooled so i can make some money for colledge. 24k a year at 18 doesnt sound bad to me.

y not a 4870? but if ur insistent to go nV i would get a gtx280 because sli is not future proof especially the gtx200 series, they are not worth the money. resale value will be bad.

He had a Maximus Formula b4, but sold it for a 750i FTW

and is not going to buy it again...

Btw you can keep the 7950gt if you want, I think my overclock is pretty satisfying in terms of speed (8500gt performance, good enough I realized that I just wanted the 7950gt to keep up with everybody's fancy 8/9 series cards)
