Can the Mushkin Joule 700W run two Sapphire Radeon HD 5870s Vapor-X Edition on crossfire with an AMD Phenom 9950 BE and couple of Hard Drives ?
I have a VisionTek Radeon HD 7850 clocked at 1GHz, if I want to CrossFire, does it need to run at the same speeds?
I have a Visiontek 7850HD clocked at 1000mhz. If I want to run in Crossfire mode with another 7850HD do the core clocks have to match?

What is a decent 3DMark score for the new 3DMark? I'm just wondering if my system is decent or not.
I currently have an i7 920 @ stock and tri-sli GTX-280's. What would help out gaming@2560x1440 the most from these options: get a good closed loop water cooler and OC the CPU to ~4GHZ and a single hd7970/gtx-680 or save the money from the water cooler leaving cpu @ stock, 2x hd7950's / 2x gtx-670's. My budget is around $650 and time frame for upgrading is going to be in April.
First this my Gaming PC:
- Intel core i5 3570K
- Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Z77
- Corsair H80
- 7870 or GTX 660 (coming soon on 2 weeks)
- Samsung MV3V-4G3D/US DDR3 2x4GB 1600MHz
- Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
- Cooler Master 690 II Advanced
I have a question about is necessary use 120Hz (1920x1080) monitors for more smooth movements and better peformance for gaming over 60 FPS without activate V-Sync.
And so if using their monitors improve on Full-HD movies. (all formats)
I seen on many forums but don't sure about buy a 120Hz monitor or 60Hz monitor and 60GB SSD.
PD: Not interested in using 3D, just a Full-HD monitor with more frequency than 60Hz.
How much difference is between high-end motherboards in performance? lets say asus sabertooth z77, Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H and Biostar Hi-Fi Z77X. i want to overclock them but i dont know which to buy.
Hi, i want to buy a new 2x4GB RAM kit to my computer. I have a GA-EP45T-UD3LR mobo and wanted to know if when choosing the memory i gotta stick to the supported chipset of each company and model.
For example, i really wanna get some G.skill set of memories but the product details says that the supported mobo chipsets are P67/Z68/P55/AMD7xx.....
Will i be able use it on my mobo? If so, then will it run at max speed supported by my mobo?
is there any risk or other issues that might pop up?
