Please check my system specs below avatar. You can see my current pc, and next to each heading the parts that I currently have for the future build and the parts which are "coming soon". Thing is that although everything can be delivered next week, the Zotac 670 4GB has been postponed to early August I have these choices to make: 1) Leave everything as is, and get all the "coming soon" stuff including the 670 4GB early August; or 2) Order another 670 but which will have 2GB vram (or any other graphics card) to get delivery within the next 10 days or so (just not the Asus 670 2GB CUII TOP because it's even worse because it's got no ETA). And the Evga 4GB isn't available either; or 3) Cancel the order for the graphics card and instruct seller to deliver everything else (so at least I can start building this pc) and then I'd order some graphics card later after summer. Now I had really decided on a card with 4GB of vram. My favorite games are Bethesda ones (like Skyrim, Fallout3 etc...) where I have the choice to use high texture mods, modify the ini file to have more grids loading and the like. Basically I'm the type to gloat more over graphic performance than actual gameplay Using the 5970, just setting ugridstoload to 5 in the ini file makes my fps drop down to the teens instead of 50+. Putting AA at 4x instead of zero makes fps plummet to the 20's (and no I never dared trying ugridstoload and 4xAA at the same time ) And that's also leaving out any texture mods whatsoever. I game on a 2560x1440 monitor, so that puts more strain on the vga.... I was thinking about option 3. It will give me time to build using onboard graphics, check that everything's well, overclock and fine-tune, and in the meantime use the pc for crunching. During the summer months I won't be having much time to play anyway. What would you suggest?
