    Trying to rearrange things so that I can get my folding box back up and I need a more powerful card than my gtx260s, as the sim I play doesn't use sli. I inadvertently sent $150can to my paypal account, so within 8 days I can instant pay. I can show how to send over the border, customs is easy if you know how. I don't want gtx280s, I've already thrown 2 away. Any offers to get to my 5mil folding mark?

    Someone make an old disabled person on a fixed income a deal here! I want to run my Rise of Flight sim at max settings. I need a quad core, but can't afford one. The only other way to increase fps is better gpu. The sim uses 90%+ on both cpu cores, and the 260 gpu. Someone must have a gtx285 they could throw me cheap, xmas present?

    I'll have to see how much I can get a pump and rad for to run it I guess. If it looks feasible I'll get back to you.

    You haven't flown Rise of Flight then. It is probably the most cpu and gpu intensive, realistic sim on earth. I spend hours just flying around in my Sopwith Camel or SE5A looking at the scenery. Most people who fly it have i7s and 480s. I can barely fly it at my res of 1920x1200 and my silly little dual core. And the engine has not been optimized for sli yet, so I can't use my 2 260s in sli. Download the demo of ROF and run it at my res and settings and see what your box can do! http://riseofflight.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=14412&sid=23bea9efd702caffa5d8a027d710195f
