Yes it's a big jump. The 9800GTX+ played BC2 perfectly fine but once I tried to play the BF3 Beta it basically said FUUUUUUUUU to me and barely played it on low

I installed the GPU/PSU/Win7 64-bit on Friday Night late and did all the windows updates. Then installed BC2 on Saturday and played a few rounds Saturday Night/yesterday. Graphics looks better but BF3 will be the real test since the graphics in that game are WAY more intense than in BC2!!

I have updated some of my stuff in my PC for the upcoming BF3!

I had a 512MB nVidia 9800GTX+ video card but that would not handle the BF3 Beta..

So I upgraded that to a MSi 2GB HD 6950 PE/OC (see pic below - not my pic)



Since I only had a 500w Antec PSU I figured I'd upgrade that while I was at it.

I went with the OCZ 700w Mod-Extreme Pro (see pic below - not my pic)



I also went from Windows 7 Home 32-bit to Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
yeah that is a HUGE leap forwards in graphics power, hope you enjoy it and have fun trying to push it to the max

Yeah. I wanted to play BF3 at least on medium/high setting. I got the GPU for like $250 after rebate and the PSU for $60/$70 after rebate

The MSi card is quiet and cool!

A very nice new GPU + PSU, 96accord. MSI in my opinion is great so you should have minimal troubles with it. I hope anyway.

Very nice build, Darkelk. Any reason for the upgrade to SLI? A 560Ti should be enough for most games, I would think.

Mainly because I can, I like to fiddle around and add new parts to my system. I would assume there would be benefits if I wished to sli 2 560's so I can game on max settings.
