For a single Card 600 is enough, should only need 500-550, but yeah cutting it close.

1 Vid card uses 500W on full load so that only leaves 100W for the rest of the PC.. Which Id rekon it would easily use. Most PC's use about 150W just sitting at complete idle.

Its allways better to have heaps of head room when it comes to power. More headroom means that your not never running your PSU at 100%

Yes things are more efficient these days but I'd say that at minimum a 800W Truepower is a must & the price difference is nothing.

Well ATI vs NVIDIA fuck knows.. I've only ever owned Radeon's so cant speak for Nvidia..

Fraps is more a overall system sucker. You need good HD, CPU & GPU speeds to keep Fraps from slowing you FPS..

Get on Youtube mate & have a look at a few different cards vs others & make up you mind.

Strictly speaking, and this is an old argument, im not sure it's still correct, if you want a cheap card, go with Radeon, Nvidias cheep cards suck, if you want a Higher end one $400 or more go with Nvidia.

It's only a 600W because they didn't have anything larger in at the time, I'm getting a 900W Antec one early next week when it arrives, COuld have waited but honestly I wanted my rig.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html

The 'best' graphics card depends on a host of considerations panda. Atm the worlds fastest card is the NVIDIA GTX 690, which will set you back around $1,400 - $1,500. Dont ask me why, its such a rapidly evolving market that I cannot be bothered keeping fully abreast of it unless its nearing time for an upgrade.

While that's the best card, the best card at a particular price point varies from AMD to NVIDIA. That above guide is generally pretty helpful, however it is now also such an influential review that it hikes up the prices on the cards it recommends, especially in Australia with our smaller demand and higher margins asked by the local vendors.

You probably want to look around for something that's in the price range you want, and look at reviews for it and see how it performs. I think it would be unheard of for BF3 not to be part of the benchmarking these days.

$959 RRP at the moment, That's purely because of the announcement of the next gen cards.
Honestly panda you don't need a top end card unless you plan on rendering or recording, And even then it's not needed. Hit up an SSD, Get cleaner RAM and optimise what you already have.

Then in 6 months when the next gen comes out upgrade to what the top tier is now. <3

So this system is fucked.
Fucking summer.
Went into work this morning got home at 11:30 to find that the CPU pins had melted and fused with the motherboard.

Well teaches me for not going with liquid cooling I guess.
Seriously fuck summer.
