Later i wish to add a third graphics card. same type, but i heard the cpu will max out if you have 3 cards and you will only get the same FPS as you would if you had two cards. will that processer be able to handle all 3 cards and have them all maxed out for max fps.

the reason for a big power unit is im going to add parts as i gain more cash, like maxs out the ram campaticy and still be future proof.

ive got a second hhd for just game installtion or will it be as fast with just one hhd?

thanks all for reading.

Looks like a solid very high end rig. If any CPU availiable today will not cause a bottleneck with triple-sli 480's, its that one. Your hard drive config is great, small system drive, large storage drive. spot on.

As for BFPO and VAT, not my area im afraid, im sure someone will answer on that soon.

i know all my other mates have had vat returns when they purchased a computer off the dell website, so i was just woundering if the vat does get returned means i have the cash for the RAM :D

Yes you can have it fully loaded. I would recommend the 1333 ram if you do as its a lot better for stability.

As far as the VAT goes i presume so, but its not something i deal in :(

Hi Antper942

With regards to your query re VAT. If you send us the relevant certificate from your commanding officer confirming you are elilgible for a VAT exempt sale, we can deduct the VAT from the cost of your order before payment. If you are in a restricted area, remember you have a size limit on your BFPO delivery. You want a gaming case and will need to verify that this is acceptable with BFPO. The packaging is very large, especially if you also order peripherals. Some restricted areas (eg Iraq) won't accept anything larger than a laptop.
You can email the scanned exemtion certificate to [email protected] or fax it to 44 1484 667140. I think that's the fax number for outside the UK. From within the UK the fax number is 0845 226 4046.
It would be helpful if you already have a quote saved and include the number on the certificate.
Also, if you wish to pay by card online, please phone us first. IP addresses outside the UK and Ireland are blocked as an anti-fraud measure, but we can remove the block on a specific country whilst you make your payment.

As long as the order is completed in time then collecting from our premises is not a problem. As you are only in the UK for a short(ish) period of time I would probably recommend going for the Fast Track Service to ensure you don't get caught out by any unexpected delays.

Unfortunately UK law states that we can only provide your order VAT free if we use the BFPO service. This means that if you were to collect the computer you will need to pay VAT.

Please check the size of deliveries accepted by BFPO in your area and send this through with your cerfiticate from your commanding officer.

I would defo go BFPO if it works out. VAT is a lot of money.
