    My new favorite combo is the SV98 with an ACOG 4X scope...idk what about it, but I get a lot of 1 shot (nonHS) kills with it.

    Are you serious ? The voice and music is like we are recruiting off Polk St. in SF,
    if you are gonna put up a battlefield game play toughen up the music at least. I'll
    give the commentator the benefit of the doubt, but Come on Man !

    Yeah you're good, we all know it now STFU:roll::roll::roll:

    I was trying to do some stack racing, but it just didn't want to work out. This is what came out of that night

    They weren't even really on my radar at all until another user mentioned he got a Zotac for $190 direct but I just scored a brand new EVGA Superclocked GTX 480 for $220 shipped on The Bay. Damn near GTX 570 performance with half a gig more vram for $100 less and only like 30-60 more watts (and about same as my two 6850s give or take tens of watts).

    Who cares about heat and noise and besides now I'm looking at second-hand GPU blocks as it's a great candidate for my first watercooled card as well. :)

    You will like the 480! I can get my 560TI over stock 480 specs but when you OC the 480, it will come back and beat mine no prob!

    Possibly in the future; would need a new PSU for that as only got a TX-750. And, obviously, getting a new PSU is not just spending the money. It's practically a rebuild. Ok not quite but a definite pain in the ass.

    Im sure you do. I needed to save a little bank. Or not spend any more as it were when all is said an done. Also, as it's a bit less horsepower than my two 6850s I wanted as much more vram as possible to see what kind of difference it can make in certain scenarios, right now specifically in terms of BF3 + MSAA as well as Skyrim mods.

    A TX 750 would hold both of those cards.

    Not quite I don't think; not close enough for comfort at least with everything else in the mix. An 850 would though.

    Yup, I think so too. I run my overclocked i5, two 5870s, 4 HDDs, an SSD, my MCP-35X, and 11 case fans on a Toughpower 700W. The 480s do draw more power than the 5870s, but I still think you'd be in the clear.

    You will be around 677-700W full load 24/7 which will NEVER happen unless you fold that machine

    I have to beg to disagree my HX 850 kicked the bucket under the strain of 2x 6970s and they used LESS power then GTX 480s so should and can etc arent really good enough when you overload a PSU that takes 2 GPUs and 3 HDDs with it.
