just keep that in mind when taking my advice. but before going all NVIDIA all the time, borrow a card for your setup and see how it works for you for a week or two would be my suggestion.

always remember, forum information is just that, forum information...swallow slowly and be within arms reach of a bathroom

for myself-only interested in 2D work-ATI is the only option. my eyes damn near bleed after working for a few hours with NVIDIA GPUs. this has been the case for a long time for me on a number of different monitors. considering the primary role of this machine is for web design, 2D output should be your primary concern.
and here i thought i was the only one you thought this. not like i go looking

enough is enough it's few nights I don't sleep well to thing how to arrange my PCs , not only this one

so this build will be like this, tell if if you see something wrong


twelve hundred , with the antec aluminium rad
Maximus formula III
I7 860 with a good air cooler
2 * X-25m in raid 0
1 500 black
5870 with water block connect to the antec rad

ok the problem, the Aluminium rad, I purchase it, it fit well under the fan, i need to WC the GPU only for the noise, I will not OC it. so i need a good sugestion for the anti-corrosion

the CPU will 99% of the time run at stock level, the 1% Oc will be just for test and show the Asus software to do so. I don't need 5 ghz for those experiment.



is everything right ?

Haev you ever tired Easy tuner 6 coming with you GA board? Almost the same, few less possibilities but grand line are the same. You know my position, they are good board but for the config it's most of the time overpriced. for me they are reliable only when on sale.
