    you should be able to hit 950/1375,

    thats what i did without adding more voltage, on some cheapo Powercolors.

    is it full cover you will be putting on them?

    new mobo, EVGA SLI LE

    yes i know the wm sucks, but wont be better until i have a modular psu:D

    I like these Asus cards, they are arranged differently than other ones I have seen (nice for water cooling)

    I have some old Koolance GPU-180-L06 sitting in a box somewhere (since these arent 5870s heat isant that big of an issue) But il throw on some Enzo copper heatsinks as well just for fun

    they came with Hdmi to DVi adaptors.. Honestly, I will never use more than 1 LCD and I would rather have the full width exhaust than the extra DVI.

    (And to me I use the VGA every once in a while so I like having it)

    I saw the full coverage water coolers EK, they look cool but I dont think they will fit these cards.

    one other factor is I got this card from Newegg for $124 so I wasent gonna complain too much..

    Really old...server stuff I think..

    (I can make anything fit, lol)

    I saw the 1 Crossfire connector and figured I would never buy a 3rd one so it was fine. I really like the way the card is engineered (makes it nice to add cooling to it)

    I haven't gamed with it yet. I have my stuff backed up in a damn Windows Easy Transfer File. I can only transfer back to a drive with Windows, my SSD obviously does not have the space to fit 500GB of files. So I gotta find a way to get a drive that has that capacity and install windows on it. Then transfer the files to it and from that drive to my 1TB with a Seagate utility or something. PITA so I haven't done it yet.

    The SSD Is ok, the RAID was causing issues, it's disabled for now till I can figure out what's wrong with it.
