    crossfired 1gb 4670's = waste of money. Shoulda gone with one 512mb 4850

    @ cdawall: Really? I might need to check out Windows 7.

    @ Binge: 9.5/10. Nice OC on the i7. Oh yeah, and how would you say the i7 performs compared to a C2Q?

    Windows 7 really is much more optimized and I am on an old beta build of it (6801). I need to install the latest. :ohwell:

    1 - ok, but i say in average, most asus coolers doesnt cool enough to beat their high price. i have to check out some reviews.

    as for the case, also, i say in average, but sincerely, i prefer an armor over any apevia

    C2Q is easier to OC, runs with the strength of my Dual with the cores of a Quad. The memory bandwidth helps with mundane tasks. It boots a lot faster. For 3D and CAD it's absolutely leagues better than the C2Q. I've tried E8600, Q9550, and not the i7 920 within the past 4 months.

    Hey man. I know this isn't anything super high res, but trust me I go from low
    level stuff like this:

    [​IMG]

    to higher poly w/texture. Mind you I'm good at this stage of the game, but
    I really need to work on my higher level 3D art. All is smooth as butter to
    render. My Cinebench marks alone put people to shame who have render farms.
    i7 ftw.

    So, for a art person, going I7 is a great thing? I'm thinking of hitting another 4gbs for all the multi tasking I do.. hmmmm

    10/10 for your rig binge! :toast:
