Thank you for your input ive made the changes from ripjaw to.corsar and a 64bit os. Hos much of a reduction in performance and gaming quality would i see if I don't do a crossfire. And if I only put in 1 hard drive.
I think the one GPU is fine as I am not into multi GPU gaming all that much. I have built quite a few for others who insisted and I did not see the value in it honestly. The drop off depends on the game, maybe David M
can chime in on it as he is running a multi GPU setup. As far as the hard drive raid, here again, I do not see the value in it as the performance gain seems minimal at best.
If you want to reduce your cost further, go with a different board and CPU. Use a single GPU solution. This allows you to bump up the video card and reduce the power supply. Your still getting an excellent CPU that will handle all the games and then some. Essentially your reducing cost by getting what is only necessary while maintaining high quality and excellent performance.
