New Rig


Recommended Posts

OK, so given that:

Planning to throw in another GFX card after a couple weeks to sli, and another identical HDD dedicated to college work. This should be running through a 24" screen putting out 1920x1080(p).

I've decided to scrap the sli scheme. Firstly because, I've realised after quite a while that the board I'm after doesn't support Sli, which is fine if I had the cash right now to buy a really high end Nvidia card, but I don't. So i reckon I'm going inbetween the pricepoint of 1 and 2 460's and going for a decently specced 5870.

Most of the other stuff remains unchanged, going for a thermaltake frio CPU cooler, still on corsair dominator, but a slightly different kit, and that's pretty much it.
