    god damn your going to have fun times getting that up and running.

    I want to spend money on mine but the little voice inside my head telling me to do so is getting crushed by the big voice screaming at me to save for university lol.

    btw nice paint job on the GTS

    now if only the part gods would ship me my pre ordered i7 920 life would be good...not to mention within the next 2 weeks im going to get a drop shipment of like 15 reveiw parts. the coolest thing is i figured out how to get little meggy to not complain about spending...buy her stuff..all this came to just under $500 so i buy what i need then buy meg something and she's happy "can i play the sims on it good?" "yes hunnie yes you can ..and ill order you a second one later for sli so both the cards will play the sims and you wont get jitters." "really?! ok wow thats so cool." hahaha ah yes its going to get back to me though karma sucks..but atleast i have fun now.

    Too bad my gf doesnt game so I dont get to bribe her when I buy stuff for my rig. It happens like this. me--> "I'm upgrading my PC" her--> "This helps us buy a house, how?" conversation over. :(

    Haha I'm with him. I'll be a reviewer if they send me free stuff to use :D

    Nice power supply by the way. Corsair and the modular are the way to go. Makes things so much nice.

    I want to buy new things because it's just so much fun putting new things together, but I don't know what to buy. :(
    I'm not building a new system until AM3 next year, and I have a new graphics card and don't need to crossfire. I want to buy, but don't want to buy unnecessary stuff, ya know? What a conundrum :(

    Nice parts, I keep wanting to upgrade my computer, but whenever I tell my GF, she just says "It's your money, do what you want with it" which anyone with a GF knows really means "You should be saving that money and spending it on something both of use like, or at least I like". :)

    That is just the standard eVGA sticker.

    Nice man...

    Gotta love the G92 chip from nVidia. Much bad can be said about some of the stuff from nVidia, but the G92 chip is a sure winner in my book. :respect:

    Out of curiosity...why the need for such a huge PSU? I7s aren't going to be sucking that much up, eh?

    my 700w couldnt take the amprage draw of my rig i didnt have enough molex's so i was killing my +12v rail and the others were spliced to 2 6 pins because my psu only comes with 2 and i needed 4so the instability was insane granted i had 4 +12v but only 18a per rail and i was seriously clocked according to my wall meter at one poaint a couple days ago i was idling at like 490w

    Woot on the Corsair box. But with two 9800s and now this GTS, why don't you plan for a single 1337 GTX 280 or something? Why go the Zerg way?
