    This is a combo deal bro. it has everything you need to go with a bigadv machine. That's why we were looking at ebay. The chip alone is half the price of the deal if not more. I agree Ebay is not the best of places to buy things from but sometimes you get some good deals on there if you look hard enough and check out the person you are buying it from.

    Edit: I got you in my sights now hertz9753 watch your back.:D
    Just a friendly pun taken....:toast::toast::toast::toast::toast:

    When i was looking, 920's went at the same price that 860's and 870's went for so i just grabbed the 920.

    Awesome bro! Look's like we both made the same decision to ditch the q6600 and go -bigadv :D Sucks for me though because we both have 920's and you have two 470's and a phenom II quad!

    It won't be long and you will be passing me! :eek: Look's like i need to start on -bigadv rig #2 or add some 470's to my setup.

    I really want your evga board! I'll give ya cash on top of my asrock sometime in the future once i get enough cash for your evga :D I plan to get a evga board in the future anyways. My rig is used for folding and gaming and the evga boards look sick at lan's :D

    Hmm im guessing you need cash since you bought that i7 setup. I could try and sell some stuff. I have two evga 8800gts's i could probably sell on ebay for a decent amount. I was also just cleanin out under my bed and found my logitech z-313's! They have been sitting in the retail box ever since i got my receiver and new setup. I don't have many spare parts i could sell but i have those delta fan's i could probably sell for a decent price on ebay. If i could get 30 for the fan's 30-40 for the z313's and $120 for my 8800gts's i could have probably 180-190 for a 470.

    Would my PSU run a 470 on a -bigadv fine? Just 1 470 for now on this PSU.

    The 470, on stock at full load, has TDP of 215W. I'm not sure how much the rest of your system pulls.

    You bought that combo deal, crap I get a commission off of that. Say 20%.I did all of the hard work like trolling ebay for it... :roll:
    Good deal Bro, way to go I hope it works out for you. Keep me informed as to how it works and any other details about it. If you don't like the board sell it and grab a different one instead.
    My IMO that is a sweet board you got tri-SLI already on it. Now get you some good memory and your setup will be complete. :rockout::rockout::rockout::D
    I was going to see about selling my AMD rig setup also and grabbing that one. O well you snooze and you lose. LOL:roll:

    Yep but in the long run you will pay more for a 920 it uses more watts, 130watt compared to 95watt for the i7 870. Plus the cost of triple channel memory over dual channel memory. So it does cost more for the i7 920 setup than it does for a i7 870 setup. It's just whichever one you want to buy. If you are watching your Elect. bill then grab an i7 870 if not then go with the 920 setup. Either way Xbonez scored big. I'm sure he will be happy about what he bought.

    I don't need to worry about electricity :p I'm still living with my parents and my rig actually heat's up the basement and we don't have to use a electric heater anymore so my parents don't care ;)

    I went 1366 just for the ability to upgrade to a 970 in the future if needed. 12 core's would be amazing :D

    He definitely scored big on that! That's pretty much getting a evga 3x sli board for $150 bucks :eek: I was looking at getting the 2x sli with a third pci slot for my build and their like $210 bucks on the egg. I eventually plan to get a new board. I just grabbed the ASRock cause it was cheap and i wanted to finish my build :)

    Just checked the tracking info on my RAM and here's the status :D The UPS driver need's to put his ass in high gear i want that ram!

    @ Bonez where's my 20% finders fee...:roll:
    Man Bro I was really looking into getting that setup sometime this week. You scored big time and I'm sure you will like it. Now to just get rid of your old parts. Do you have memory for the new board? memory is getting cheaper so you should not have a problem with getting some if you need it.
    Good luck with your new folding rig and if you have any problems let me know and i can help you out. I do have some extra watercooling rads and other assorted parts if needed.:toast::toast:

    I still need to pick out memory. Any suggestions? Nothing tooo expensive, but at the same time nothing that would hinder my OC'ing efforts.

    Yeah, superfast newegg shipping. Getting my new x4 965 processor today too. I'll continue using the H50 on it, and save the watercooling for the 920.

    How's this set:
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ...

    Runs at 1600 @ 1.6V. CAS 8.

    What shipping did you choose? I thought you already had a 965 for the main rig didn't ya? Definitely put the rasa kit on your 920 :D I'll leave the h50 on my 920 :eek:

    RAM look's pretty good. My stuff is 1600 cas 9 but i also paid $65 bucks for it so i wasn't complaining.

    I chose the standard 3 day shipping. Paid about 5 bucks for it. Far better than EggSaver.

    I sold my 965 (RB-C2 stepping), for an RB-C3 stepping. Lower TDP of 125W as compared to 140W, so hopefully better OC.

    Awesome man! You should be able to get that thing clocked to 4.0 hopefully if your h50 can keep up with it!

    Get that PSU rolling on the folding rig for now unless you need to get rid of it right away for the i7 rig.

    Order some RAM for your i7 rig so you can get it going right away :D You already have a rasa kit coming for it now your gonna be stuck without ram just like i am :p
