For a two-disk RAID, it's a simple decision -- Redundancy or performance? I'd choose redundancy (RAID 1).

But if you buy two more of them, RAID 10.

I'll still get the tablet. Two 7950s for $160 can't be passed up. I may try and swap them for a 780 or something like that

I really wish I would have went with 2 r9 290 x cards vs adding a second 7950, but i need to upgrade mobo and cpu and monitor when I get there, as well as looking at water cooling. I will do a complete build before W3 comes out this winter.

What are the pros and cons of having a motherboard with two video cards?

That's a vague question. Depends on which two and why. If you're gaming at 1080p, there is absolutely no reason to buy two cards. That would be for a cost-effective upgrade -- i.e., you were gaming with a mid-range card for a couple of years and decide to pick up a second one on ebay to get some longevity out of your GPU setup.

Otherwise, you really should only crossfire/SLI high-end cards if you're doing it right off the bat, and only if you're playing at resolutions beyond 1080p.

I have a barely used 270x for sale. $100 plus shipping.

EDIT: although, I don't have 2 free games to offer with it.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


Hmmm... tempting offer. What about a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745?

Also think I'm going to go with the Intel i5 processor right now and upgrade to an i7 later.

Just go for an i5 and don't upgrade for a long time. By the time the CPU is worth upgrading, you'll need a new motherboard too.


What's your whole build look like? If you're even considering Intel, you might be underspending on a GPU in proportion to the rest of the build.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


My buddy gave me his NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 because he was building a new PC. He said it would run everything i want to play at max settings. My main games are going to be The Sims and steam games. I'm trying to go cheap.
