    It wasn't that I wasn't thinking hard enough, I just didn't have the knowledge that GK110 is so close.:toast:

    I honestly expected you to say GTX690 or HD7990.

    Yeah...though he did say "truly something special" not just "something insanely powerful" or what have you. :p

    Well it's not a done deal yet, so it may end up being a 690 . .. :cry:

    We'll see, as I said it's not a done deal, I'm trying to convince them that I "need" an ES.

    And you're :cry: because you'd be doubling your graphics power? Preposterous.


    Yeah, make sure they know it needs to be cherrypicked too, lol.

    Well all ES's are cherry picked usually, as well as voltage unrestricted:D.

    But we'll see.:ohwell:

    Board and PSU came...fast shipping, man, less than 48 hours.

    It manages to look cute and badass all at the same time!

    I liked them but they charge me tax :( and for as close as we are, shipping is not too quick :cry: But I do think they're a solid company :)

    Looking forward to seeing your toys!

    Well on a very sad note, my grandmother, passed away @ 5:33 AM this morning in my arms, she will be dearly missed by many people. I want to thank ya'll for being supportive and patient with my thread crapping about personal problems.



    All that said, I will be throwing myself at this project.



    So updates incoming.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. My grandfather (92) passed away in the spring. I am glad you were able to be with her.

    That means a lot, I am having a terrible time sleeping perhaps, some pics of some of the things that came in during my absence, will help with that.

    I know it doesn't mean much coming from a faceless screenname, but I'm very sorry for your loss. I know it all too well, only one of my grandparents is still around. At least you can go on knowing she is no longer sick or in pain.

    That said, I look forward to the rest of this project and the little touches you give it for your grandmother.;)

    In a loved ones arms is pretty much the best way to go. Don't get too drunk.

    Okay so after the Broncos game (which was an amazing one!) I was able to snap some picks of some of the goodies that showed up while I was in Wyoming.




    To protect all this nice new stuff, a nice new surge protector!

    And as I am still on the hunt for a new mouse to replace my X8, I present the Taipan (yes and the collectors edition of prometheus).

    Hey how do you like the case? My dad and I are thinking about doing a fun project and creating a small Virtual Machine Host and domain name server and I was thinking of looking at this case for it :)

    I love it, it has plenty of room to work with, and with support for 5 + hard drives, and great air flow, it would make a great server case, Intel even makes an 1155 mini-itx server board, my old place of employment used to use those boards their quite good, but the case is amazing, and very well priced IMO.

    I was going to get an Asrock Z77 ITX board. But that one looks pretty good too.
