I'll try to spring the cash for it.

Edit: The Venice cores are very good for overclocking I believe. So I could just overclock it and not have to spend the extra dough.

I would try to stay away from Chaintech if I were you. They make some pretty crappy stuff and I have had personal bad experiences with them.

Really? Personally I've heard mostly good things about them. Hmm.

Edit: I will look into MSI instead of Chaintech.

Your going to have to pay more for this stuff, if you want the good stuff. You get what you pay for.

No doubt man. I'm on a tight budget though. Makes everything much more difficult.
