My System Specs

Default New Computer Build, Which Graphic card to take?

Hi Linus,

I am planning to make a new build, so far this is what I've had in plan

Case : Thermaltake level 10 snow
Motherboard : Asus Rampage III Black Edition
CPU : Core i7 980
Memory : 2x Corsair Vengeance 12GB Tripple Channel DDR3
O.S. HDD : 240gb OCZ Revodrive3 X2
Storage Drive : Not decided yet.

As for cooling It will depend on my graphic card.

So between :
-Asus GTX 580 Matrix
-EVGA GTX 580 Classified Hydro copper

Which one would you think will perform better on my build?

I saw one of ur video unboxing the matrix, are the fans making a lot of noise when they r under pressure from gaming?
I am only considering getting a hydro copper GTX 580 because I am currently running 2x GTX 470, and they are loud as hell when I play on max settings on some games, plus the top card is running way hotter than the bottom card.

Right now I only have the budget to buy 1 card, But I could possibly buy another one in the future.
Please let me know of what you think of my build, any critics or suggestions will be MUCH appreciated.
So far the only ones that I have bought are the Case, and the CPU, I am planning to buy the rest after I have received your blessings =)
Thanks Linus
