You can only use the Nvidia card for PhysX with a ATI card if you use hacked drivers. So depending upon the game and whether it needs updated drivers or not, you may or may not have PhysX support. If you want to keep the GTX 280 you should look at the GTX 460 or 465.

I would never recommend GTX 465 to anyone, unless if you could find one for cheap price

GTX 460 (1GB/256-bit model) performs better than GTX 465 in most gaming benchmarks, consume much less power, and usually cost same or even cheaper

I am about to pull the trigger... but I have a few questions, sorry!

Why get the 640HDD, and not the 2tb? (i already have a external 2tb hdd, so I guess it is not needed.)

CORSAIR CAFA70 120mm Dual-Fan CPU Cooler seems REALLY nice.

DDR3, so 3x is better than the 6x?

Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield is just bad ***, and is cheap.

ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366, looks nice, I must have overlooked it.

the guy who is going to be building my computer likes the build you recommended.




I am thinking of getting a graphic card too, sapphire radeon HD 5970...

Thanks for the help / please get back to me.

About how far can I have my guy overclock this?

Thank you.

i went with the 640 because if i went with the 2tb it would have gone out of budget.

the corsair A70 is a great cooler! so is the Coolermaster V8, V6GT and the noctua NH D14, look into each of those, read and watch reviews on yourube and google. really cant go wrong with any of the ones i listed tho.

the i7 930 uses triple channle ram, so 3 gig ( 3x1 ) 6 gig ( 3x2 ) 12 gig ( 3x4 ) or 24gig ( 6x4 ) there are others but those are the main ones. but you wont need more than 6 gigs.

the Asus P6X58D premium mother board is the bees knees.

and i suggested the 5850 because the 5970 was out of budget. but if you want a 5970 thats the best fastest meaniest graphics card on the planet.

and i7s love being overclocked. get one of those CPU coolers and we can help you overclock it!
