well, it depends on the case. if u have great airflow, then u dont need many fans. also, if im correct, the 8800s have good cooling systems. they direct the air straight out thru the back.

yeah that's the one. though if u want to overclock, supposedly (dont count on me on this) i was reading steampowered forums and ppl were saying overclocking is covered under XFX's warranty and that its lifetime. i have no idea but if that's the case, i'd go XFX. but yes, that's the card.

heatsink? ooo, theres a really nice one from thermalright but like i said, it all depends on your case. if u pick a nice case or something, i can pick out a nice heatsink.

powersupply? make sure its at least 600W and it has at least 30amps going out on the 12V rails. the one im getting has 4 12V rails with 18amps on each so a total of 72amps. though its not 100% efficient so i'll prob get like 60amps. that's gonna cost more than my case.

fans, depends which case and which heat sink you have. i prefer low noise computers so my advice is to buy a passive heatsink, and then buy another fan to hook up to the heat sink.

This pic sums it up perfectly:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Northsouthbridge.png

but to elaborate. you need a good northbridge for everything. Southbridge connects to the CPU thru northbridge so if the northbride sucks, then everything else will suck. you also know how people overclock and stuff? well the thing that people always forget to cool is the northbridge. that thing determines the max speed and how stable your computer is when overclocked. thats how tomshardware was able to get a 5.25ghz cpu out of an old p4. they poured liquid nitrogen on the cpu and used a vapochill on the northbridge.

you know how u usually see 2 heatsinks, or i mean one for the cpu and one already there? that's the northbridge. the south bridge, i dont even know where it is....lol. i think its another big chip but it doesnt get hot since it doesnt deal with voltage...im not 100% sure.

this article is somewhat accurate if u want to know more:

Anyways, I've a question, I know it's probably a stupid question, but I know very little about ATI stuff. =\
Anyways, here's the question: I currently have a mobo that has nvidia sli capabilities, but if I were to go ATI, would I be able to crossfire or would I need a different mobo?

um. well supposedly you cant. now an intel board has both SLi and CF capabilities if im correct (that's one reason why they're so damn expensive) but like a 680i mobo, i dont think crossfire is possible. i know an ATI card will work ona 680i mobo (quite well actually) but ive heard if its not a 100% compatible chipset, then u cant use all features, multiple GPU's being one of those features.

as I understand it Intel mobos are not SLi capable...nforce mobos are not crossfire capable

ok. i wasnt sure cause the only ATI chipset that supported CF was like the 3200 express or something. i'll look into it but as of now, we'll say intel is CF and nforce or 6xxi is SLi.

I am not 100% sure...but at least 80% sure...as for intel making the only crossfire boards...I don't know. To me both SLi and Crossfire are gimmicks and neither gives a decent cost-performance benefit...but from what I have read Crossfire is absolutely useless.

well its not entirely useless. like the gain in performance is about 50-75% i think. i know intel and DFI both make CF compatible boards. both Crossfire and Sli have their merits thats for sure. but the performance gain is about the same for both.

Since I consider the framerates SLi is capable of overkill, the only reason to get Sli is either A)bragging rights or b)Longevity...in my experience if you get a single top of the line card then it will give you great framerates (AKA not overkill like SLi) on most games up to the point where you will probably want to buy a next gen card anyway because new Shader Models and DX effects have come out so the longevity card can be thrown out because even if SLi is giving you better framerates than a single last gen card, it won't be capable of the newer effects.

well SLI was good when ppl were playing at 1600x1200. now that the 8800GTX does the same as SLI, it doesnt matter. though for oblivion indoors, thats where SLI for the GTX's would come in handy.

they're fine for running stock but they get kinda loud after a while. i'd get a different one, like a giant passive one and you can pick out your own fan. that way, you'd get good cooling and a quiet system. i dont like it when my computer sounds like a jet engine...

some good posts about those scores that been released..


plus the test where only on 120XX by 10XX resolution I mean normally ATI cards perform much better on higher res.
