    So I found out today a special fund :) will be allocated to me within the next two weeks for over $4000, of course I cant use all of that for computer upgrades so I'm limiting myself to just a grand worth of upgrades.

    So here's what I'm thinking:

    2x GTX 275's for $450
    PA 120.3 $130
    Fans, controler, angled barbs: $70

    Possible remainder $350:
    SSD
    1000W PSU
    Case-recommendations plz
    Monitor-24" 1900x1200

    Crazy ideas:
    dual GTX 295's :cool:
    Tri 275's + 1000W psu :cool:
    Offers welcome!

    Definitly new GPU's. I'd also recommend a SSD app drive as well. I'd recomend Dual 275s. Cheap(400ish), but ridiculous performance better than a 295 or X2.

    Save zome of your money mlee (You are too close to GT300).

    Single GTX275 WITH Dtek GPU Fuzion.
    Another 3x2 Dominator kit.
    SSD.
    A 120 double rad (Maybe another BI 240?).
