I mean if it's not too expensive it's more than worth it.
Much better than paying out 1000$ more than I need.
Damn it, and I had the super setup too, you are lucky living where you do.

Other than finding a company that builds this type of rig, you'd be wasting money on two 5970's.

Quadfire scales badly (cards don't get fully used) and Tri/Quadfire + Eyefinity still does not work properly.

Plus a CPU @ 3.2 will bottleneck two 5970's.

For single screen gaming, a trifire setup would be more 'practical' ie 5970+5870.

Dude, you are seriously just wasting money. Two 5970's! C'mon man, your screens resolution is only 1920x1080... but you're buying like your entire wall is filled with monitors. The sad part about all this dreaming is that for 1/4 the price guys are getting the same game performance that you will. The machine will only be good for one purpose: to make guys drool on forums... and that's only going to last a few months, at best. At worse, you'll feel like a fool when you come to the realization that about $3,000.00 was just wasted.

Stop... breathe... reconsider.

920, X58, 5970, 6GB's and an SSD are all you need to get the best game performance possible at 1920x1080. Anything more could be better utilized in Vegas... or Gstaad.

Okey. I might have overdone it :)
It's easy to spend a lot when you have a lot.
So one 5970 is enough?

When I spec'd out it was actually only $100 more for cyberpowerpc to build it over me doing it myself from NewEgg... plus I found a code for 5% off at the time and saved about $100 - ended up washing out :) That really sucks about non-international... sorry

I found a good site finally in norway. What about a crossfire 5870 setup? Is that any good?
