Re: Figuring out best vid card config
I got the money for an Alienware. From the research I've done, they're still the best, last the longest, best support, and easily upgradable. CrossfireX enabled and more than enough room to handle everything. Plus, not really that much more to buy it than to build my own, and I get the extras and minus the headache.
I was gonna do the Area-51. Intel i7 920 2.66ghz, 6gb 1333mhz ddr3, and then the 5970. I had the same idea Mutant Corn had, about eventually adding on another 5970 when I need the power or if it gets cheaper. I want the bragging rights and to be able to play games like Warhead and Crysis 2 when it comes out. I figure dual GPU cards are the future, so if I get the 5770, I'll probably end up getting the 5970 eventually anyway, why not now?
