I'm new to the forums, nice to meet you all. I'm a bit of a gamer and i've been upgrading my PC piece by piece to more of the latest bits and pieces to play more of the latest games and upcoming ones. My current setup is:
ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus
Intel Core 2 Duo e6420 @ 3Ghz
BFG GeForce 7950GT 512mb OC
4GB DDR2-800 RAM
I've upgraded everything but the processor and video card, and now it's time to upgrade the video card. The only problem is is that when it comes to picking one, I get lost in the specification hoo-ha. To be honest, I don't understand it much at all. Because of this, I was wondering if I could ask for advice in picking the best card from these two, which have been customised slightly (either by OC or a custom cooler).
Gainward Bliss 8800GTS 512mb - (http://www.gainward....gapro.php?id=52) overclocked to the following settings listed on the following image:
BFG 8800GT 512mb OC - (http://www.bfgtech.c...88512gtoce.aspx) - Akasa Vortex Neo custom cooler.
Another question is, what kind of power supply would hold these cards decently? I have an Antec modular power supply (650w) I recieved with my Antec 900 case, but assume that the overclock on the first card listed might be a bit of a strain on the supply.
Any opinions are appreciated. Thank you for your time.
