    Quick questions on my build

    I have a few ideas on my budget gaming rig and I would like to run my ideas over with some people that are not noobs like me. lol

    M5A99XEVO
    AMD FX6100
    ANTEC 620w psu
    CORSAIR VENGENCE 8gb ram

    My question to you guys and gals is this a good setup, and i am a bit confused on if I should get a gtx550ti or a gtx460 or a ATI card for around the same price because i do plan on sli/crossfiring in the next 2 months or so and I will be using a 32" monitor.

    well for the extra 20 dollars i would go with the sabertooth but the m5a99xevo looks like a good board.and that psu, it appears that it only has one 6pin pciE and one 8pin pciE,a single 460 requires 2 6pin

    The psu is fine i believe because the cards come with what looks like a molex to what ever the card uses,if im not mistaken. and i agree with you on the mother board so i might go for the crosshair v or the sabertooth. it depends on how long my patience can last to finish lol

    well from one review i saw about sli 550ti it says it will beat the 560 easy,2 460 sli are supposed to beat a 570, and personally i would get a 570 because of the memory size 1250mb vs 1gb and sli can have issues not saying its a bad idea to sli. you might have a hard time finding matching 460 cards they are getting rare
