Anyways, my first question is: How much of a difference is there between the 5870 and 5970? I know on a budget like that the 5970 can be a hit or miss, but I do have an OCD thing where I will not play the game unless it is pretty much gorgeous. This is why I avoid using my pc anymore.
Anyways, is there any build I could do from newegg.com that would have an i7 920, a 5970 (or a 5870 if you think it's better) ~6-8gb of ram (preff 1333 or 1600 ddr3), room for another 5870 if I GO for that 5870, and a 1-2TB HDD. I would also like a blu-ray/cdrw optical drive. I do very extreme gaming a times. Obviously if overheating is a factor I would need help with that. I don't understand most of the lingo when it comes to things like that ^^
Oh...and if there is a better dual core processor out there for gaming please let me know. I would like to have the best processor for my choice, but I was under the impression certain cpu's allowed tri-channel memory. (I like to run many many apps at once)....Anyways please let me know if i7s would be best or dual cores. I'm really new to the computer building thing since I've been poor all my life.
Thank you if you can help me. ^^
PS: I was looking through motherboards and I was wondering why none of them on newegg have triple channel memory availability? I heard that was a new thing.
