mini wireless, and video editing pc for my personal use. all parts are brand new.
More on the RAM than the CPU and 1333 at that :(
Have you experienced any airflow or heat issues from the cooling solution of your GPU? I'm planning a very similar build in a Cooler Master Elite 130 and have read that the blower-style reference cards are better for SFF cases since they don't push hot air around the small case. Options are limited in blower-style GPU's as I want either a 760 or R9 270X.
Um, why 16GB of RAM, and why is it at 1333? Faster RAM makes the APU perform better.
"sapphire radeon HD6970 2gb gddr5". With the 8XXX/9XXX/Whatever coming soon (hopefully), why the older GPU?
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/dual-graphics-crossfire-benchmark,3583.html It turns out when you hybrid x-fire, the discreet card does all the work.so faster ram would not help in this case.
Huh, didn't know that. Also didn't know that you could hybrid xFire with a 6970 o.o
You can't, but when you put in a discrete GPU it will just use the 6970's RAM.
Wow. Welp, I haz learned, so it's all good :3
nvidia is good for higher end products. their "budget" cards fall short to AMD's, but AMD doesn't make higher end cards as well as Nvidia does
