    they dont sell the GTX+ at BB so i got the regular ones and i dont understand "at least get 9800GTX+" i took that as you thinking its a debate but it wasnt whaqt one should i get..it was look what im getting and besides their the same 55nm process means nothing to me...i know how to punch temps in the face and with the mods i perform OC'ing isnt and issue..silicon limit is silicone limit...sure smaller dies help or impove ocing but at crazy volts i dont think it will matter much that and if its anythinglike the last cards iv owned i probably wont kep them long...ill update you guys soon but i ran into a snag...my case is too small lol...so im getting a TT armor series case it will be totally sick!!!! new case and new cards im in heaven...and iv always wanted an armor series case. so brand new big cards are a perfect excuse to get what i want without the girl getting mad ;) because she's sad that i cant use my cards ;) win win. o btw they are beautiful heavy and the size of my forarm. :twitch:

    well if i have any of the skill i used too damulta will need more than expeniveparts to beat me ;) he'll need skill :eek: but i shouldnt count my cookies yet though damultas has grown lax because he has a sponser that will give him many cards and he always has more equipment than everbody back in the day he was a very ableoverclocker and modder so i will hold my tongue until the mods are done and the scres are out.





    @Damulta im just playing dont hate me. just friendly compitition a stab at how jealous iam that your backed by palit and payback for fuckin with me when you said my disk was the worst software ever lol :laugh:

    Hey Solaris could you let me know how long they are in inches. I got a few of the XFX versions coming for my comp.
    I wanted the 9800GTX+ but I hate waiting for Nvidia to stop goofing off so I went with the 9800GTXs.

    If you don't do pot before you hook up your stuff, you should be fine. You would have enough power leftover for another card. XD!

    I doubt it's really combining the amperage. I haven't come across an OCZ under 1000w that uses multiple 12v rail sources and/or independent 12v rail lines.

    But you might get away with, I'm not surprised if other people have. It's just that you're cruisin for a bruisin with some of these PSUs.

    well i only know what i read online and i dont think ill be crusin for a brusin this psu is quality doesnt fluxuate at all all voltages a tad beyond spec and for the most art absolutely solid. idk wtf not using multiple 12v sources is but it has more than 1 rail. just because its under 1kw doesnt mean its a pos this psu would power your rig. go look at w1zz's power draw charts...
