    thank you, i hope it will turn out decent :toast:

    haha i WILL get you pics, but it might not be high quality pics as i sold my DSLR, so i only have a pocket cam, but its okay:D

    i did, but you cant really be satisfied with only 1 card, its like cats and dogs, and other things, 1 is okay but 2 or more is better:D

    yeah i've heard good things about it, and it looks much nicer than the RV01, dont really like the look of that one too much, a bit transformerish i think

    The RV02 is an awesome case. Got one last week from Silverstone and it's amazing!

    the 690II is awesome, and if i dont find a used case for cheap ill probably order a new 690II,

    but as i have already tried it i want something new,

    so you want to go back with 5770s? have you thought about ref 5850s? those should OC way over a 5870 and give you very good preformance

    yes i thought about it, but the 5770 is only because it was a good deal,

    besides, 2x5850 is way to much for my needs:laugh:

    but 2 x 5770 is more suitable, and still delivers quite some power

    im only playing mw1+2, l4d1+2 etc

    nothing really demanding

    will put a window on top of it, and in time it will get a dual or triple rad on each side of it.

    it has some sorta display thingie in the front, might replace it with something that can show temps and other stuff
