    Yeah, they are pretty awesome.

    I can't wait to get my new Mobo/CPU/RAM

    It'll be nice to use my 5770 to it's full extent. (Other than a new monitor.)

    if you want that 3rd display on you card, you cannot use DVI DVI and HDMI, it HAS to be DVI DVI + DP or DVI HDMI + DP

    Next up on the buy list...

    MSI 790XT-G45 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Mother...

    Choose to go with this over the ASRock mobo, only difference is no heatpipes/cooling on VRMs near CPU/one less PCI Express slot/USB 3/SATA 3. But it can use my current CPU and RAM. Later on I can switch out the CPU for a X4 no problem. :D

    So, after doing some gaming today, I realized my 5770's cooler isn't cutting it in this summer heat, thinking I'm going to buy this and give it a shot.

    It'll be better. This cooler I have now has like a 60mm-70mm fan on it and it's hellishly loud. If I could at least get a cooler that's quieter that came with some heatsinks to put on VRMs and the mem, I'd be fine.

    Since that cooler comes with VRM and mem heatsinks, and has a 92mm fan, it should do the job nicely.

    Well I finally got around to ordering a new cooler for my ASUS CuCore 5770 today. The stock cooling was not cutting it. I was idling at about 48*C - 52*C, and under load was normally 78*C - 82*C, once while playing Alien Swarm on a warm day it got to 98*C and I had to stop playing for fear of damage. This is with stock clocks. :(

    So I ordered Arctic Cooling Accelero L2 Pro from the ebay store "memwizard". Got it for about $24 shipped. (Cheapest I could find it anywhere.) Should hopefully be here this Friday.

    Yeah, the stock cooling is crazy bad. Although I didn't come to realize such until summer. It's seriously idling at 51*C/123*F right now and it's only 74*F in my room right now. : /

    Yeah, and I paid nearly full retail for the card since I needed a 5770/I prefer buying from TPU members.
