We'd love to see pictures of your $5K+ set up. I assume you
won't can't post them, but would love to be proven wrong.
@strife777: Crap, thanks for pointing that out. It is a 750W, my hand must have slipped!
@mb: I knew I missed something more! Well, the 760 I am thinking about is around 334 USD it seems (2000 NOK). I really shouldn't go above 2500 NOK (417USD).
I should also mention that I run two monitors, but they are both kinda low end. One is a Philips 191EL (max res. 1366x768) and the other is a BenQ somethingsomething (max res. 1024x768).
Off to work, will go through your suggestions later! I can already see that you fine folk are helping, so thanks :D
At those resolutions, you need nothing more than this:
Plus it'll give you some room should you upgrade monitors later.
I recommend the 4GB card. the price difference isn't that huge. I have a 2GB GTX 760 and it performs pretty well but some newer games seem to need at least 3GB of VRAM (Titanfall and Watch Dogs) for things like Textures. My card stutters when I play these games using Ultra textures. Getting the 4GB card should be a better investment in the long run.
You also seem to have plenty of Power. I'm pretty sure the GTX 760 only needs around 500w
2GB is more than enough vram. There are very few games that use more in single monitor configuration, the games that use 3GB are for textures much bigger than 1080p and wont offer you anything. (and still work fine on a 2GB card). I'd recommend a 770 but a 760 will also be great. Alternatively you may be able to find a used GTX 680 from someone looking to make cash to pointlessly switch to the 7 series, if you can, grab it.
Stock coolers are usually pretty rubbish and loud. You can grab a relatively cheap cooler like: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 (you can find slightly cheaper but the hyper 212 evo has great reviews and is easy to install). Or you can always use an AIO liquid cooler like the corsair hydro series which will work even better. http://www.newegg.com/Corsair-Water-Liquid-Cooling/BrandSubCat/ID-1459-575
You can easily knock that load temp down 25 - 35 degrees Celsius.
That sounds like a crazy solution. I'd make sure its always running at full pump speed if its plugged into your cpu fan have it set to 100% (or full speed) in your bios. Lowering it can cause more issues. worst case just rma it. Corsair is really great about warranties (most of my comps parts are corsair and i've never had an issue.)
