Building cpu ques? Need input.
Hey everyone I'm about to buy this system and my only real concern is I want to put this in a Mid Tower Case. I'm guessing maybe the GTX 560 card will be tight? Anyone have any idea about how this case will work out, or the system overalll? THANKS!

RE: Building cpu ques? Need input.
The Rosewill Challenger will have no problem accepting that video card.

However, the video card itself isn't that great of a deal. A Radeon HD 6870 (~$175) will offer similar performance at a lower price, while a Geforce GTX 560 Ti (GTX 560 Ti are faster than GTX 560 (non-Ti)) will be significantly faster for $20 more: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6814125401

The rest of your build looks good, although you didn't mention which power supply you intend to get?

Theres also this Twin Frozr 6950 at tigerdirect.

It comes to 230 but you can, if you have a Discovercard shopdiscover you can get like 5% cashback.

Idk the forum that posted this deal said stuff about unlocking the shaders bringing it to the 6970 level and then furthur OC'ing it, but it seems like a laborious and risky take.

As far as I know, only the Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Toxic can successfully unlock into a Radeon HD 6970 most of the time.

Which exact model? Some Rosewill power supplies are decent, while some are absolute rubbish and are to avoid.
