System Specifications: I. Processor/CPU: i7 870 II. Current Graphics Card: Nvidia GTS 450 (had 6850 1 week ago) III. Display Resolution: 1080p (planning 1440p next year) IV. Power Supply Unit Specification (Brand, Wattage, Ampage, Age). If possible, please provide a link to a website containing the power supply specifications: Silverstone ST50F-ES 500W http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=248&area=en V. Case Specifications(N/A, Model, Length, Low Profile, Cooling, HTPC, Water, Silent): Coolermaster Storm Scout 1 http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/scout/ 10.6" card limit Purchase Details: I. Budget? Please be sure to include currency (If not USD), retailer preferences & specify whether rebates are a viable option. All up, $600-650 AUD. Thus includes the GPU, and any other components to make it work (new case, new PSU, etc). http://www.umart.com.au (Gold Coast store) would be the cheapest/best AU store (I can drive 20mins and pick up stuff with no shipping/delivery fees). II. Any particular preferences (Manufacturer[nV or AMD], Brand[XFX, Sapphire, EVGA, etc], Cooling Solutions)? This is my biggest battle. A week ago I was using a 6850 which died, despising AMD drivers, and constantly looking over at Nvidia which had the Nvidia Inspector tool, and all those driver graphic setting options. If AMD has supremely better performance for the price and fits my case, then I am willing to consider them. Preferably reliable brands , ones who give VBios updates and more, III. Do you plan to have any Multi-GPU solutions such as Crossfire or SLI? I am considering it lightly next year if I get a 1440p monitor. IV. Have you previously looked at a product(s) which you feel would fit your needs? Evga 670 4GB SC+ V. What are your needs for this GPU? Which games(If any)do you intend to play? If you have this information at hand, what are the desired detail levels? 3-4GB VRAM. Intent on using super high res texture packs with Skyrim, Crysis 2 with MaldoHD, high levels of Ambient Occlusion, ENBSeries where applicable, etc. My game choice is very, very varied. It goes from BF3, Skyrim, Total War (All), Mass Effect 3, Fallout 3+NV, Crysis 2, Planetside 2, and much more. All games should be Maxed. Anti-Aliasing is a major concern for me, especially at 1080p. So BF3 4xMSAA, Skyrim Supersampling, ME3 Supersampling, etc. VI. Do you plan on overclocking the card you intend to purchase? Definitely, as much performance as possible. Additional Notes 1440p is very likely next year, getting Haswell next year too. Got 2 HDDs and a SSD, used PSU for a year, consider in power calculations. Enthusiast quality graphics needed.
