    It was built 2006 and can run any recent game still.

    only reason to go with a single gtx 480 is you wanting to get two gtx 480 later on, and SLI them.

    You d start with something like this

    and upgrade your way up to this

    then either get a h50 or noctua d14 cooler and push the i7-930 up to 4.5ghz. The noctua will allow to push it more.

    The 5770 consumes 110w at max load

    The gtx 460 consumes 150w at max load

    The 5830 consumes 175w at max load


    Given equal good cooling solutions, the noise level of the gtx 460 is that between a 5830 ati and a 5770 ati.

    The bigger the heatsink, the more heatpipes, and if made out of copper instead of aluminum, the less the fan has to spin.

    Which of the gtx 460 with 768mb offers the best cooling solution, i don t know. I know it is not Palit, because they removed some heatsinks which they had on in cards they gave out to reviewers.


    In idle mode, the gtx 460 consumes as much as the 5770 and therefore noise levels here are exactly the same given same cooling solutions.

    Yeah.

    I don't know much about video cards, but I know enough that 8800gt was top of the line

    Anyone happen to know if EVGA is a good brand for the Gtx 460?

    Excellent. Love EVGA cards.

    If you're on a budget, I'm running a 260GTX and it has no problems with anything I throw at it... just something to consider.
