    sounds good,

    one of the bigger wc shops in denmark is closing so they have a huge sale, unfortunately i dont have any money, they had ek/heatkiller wb for like 2-30$, huge triple/quad rads for 50$, really crazy stuff, just hope they have some when i get some money soon

    What's holding me up now is my car. I want to try and get the more important things out the way and see if I can just at least build me another cruncher and upgrade my AMD rig to a X6 and then continue with my car. I haven't done a PC in a while :(

    s**t, I dont know.

    -Motor mounts $300-350
    -master suspension bushing $125
    -shift cables $120
    -fuel sending unit $60
    -upholstery $35

    probably about another 1.5-2 months I would say. maybe a tad longer. Once I get those things outta the way I just need to get some wheels, paint the car, and do my front seats and rug. :D Im almost there, compared to how far away I was 3 months ago LOL

    might not sound like alot, but the time it takes, + you need to find the time to do it, and so on, its bigger than you would imagine, but you know that:D

    later guys, its 7.23 in the morning here, i need some sleep:laugh:

    Yeah well once I finish with the list I plan on doing the cruncher and upgrade. Once I do that then I'll continue with the paint/rims/interior. I know its' a lot, but I want this car to be mint, it's rare, and badass if you ask me. I plan on keeping it a bit so why not. :toast: night bro

    I'd really like to get a BE X6 at some point this summer, I'm not sure if I'll have the funds to do so, but it would be a lot more affordable than a complete switch to i7

    @ ION

    Yea, def. A lot cheaper. You already checked to see if your board supports the X6?

    @DON

    Yes I do, car is paid for and all so why not restore it a bit :D

    I'm not 100% sure, support isn't listed over on Gigabyte's site, but I asked around here and over at OCN and everyone thought it would....I'll wait until the X6s actually come out and check comparability

    Same here bro, in my case support is listed for the FXTA, but not for the FXT. Weird.

    Just put WGC on the GF's laptop again. Expect my numbers to go up a bit. I'm only running it at 60% but that's not a big deal, plus I'm only making it work on two certain projects. :D

    both MSI and ASUS have their 785g boards support the x6, so i think gigabyte will be the same, would be stupid no to make it so

    Awesome!
    In that case, it just comes down to funds, hopefully I'll be getting one some time this summer then. Does anyone remember if the X6s are 125w or 140w?

    @ CP. What kinda car you restoring? Ive got a car project going also, but Im broke right now. :( Mine is a 1971 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4. Just got the lift finished. Now Im trying to get the 350 motor finished. Got new drive lines ordered, the original would not take the right angle with the new lift. It would have lasted a while but it would have eventually taken the seals out. Also working on my dads 1955 chevy step side truck. Ive got way to much stuff going on right now. All that and starting a new job. :cry: I need a vacation.

    @hogan

    I'm not actually restoring a car, I'm just replacing everything that is old or what not, trying to get it as close as new as possible. My car is a 1997 Eagle Talon TSi AWD. Nice little project you got going on bro :toast:
