    nope, need money, so i got the 260 + 200$, and besides, i dont play other games than l4d1+2 and mw1+2 so i dont really need that much power, it was fun to try it,

    but i might get a 470 in the summer, but ill wait and see how my economy will be:)

    i might go with 2x260s, they are cheap used, and never had 2 of them before, that should be fun:D

    I thought about buying a 260, but then I realized that I haven't played a single game released in the past few years. It's mostly just emulators, source-engine games, and casual games.

    then you dont need it i guess:D

    but i like to bench every once in a while, and 2x260's are nice for that afaik, not too expensive but they put out some decent numbers

    My water loop. It fits in me hand. :D

    [​IMG]

    Just cleaned it, flushed it and all that. Re-soldered the the wires on the MCP355 and added a larger ground wire. It needed a little "refurbing", the power lead was being held on by one strand of wire! Anyways, I'm about to steam clean my Lian Li V1000 to get ready for the new mobo and stuff. Need to touch up the paint on the rad too..

    Lol, need a new o-ring on the block fittings. I just got a stream of water up my nose!

    Hey, it's a real easy way to clean it every few months.. Man, might have to get a case like that just for that factor!

    LOL yeah that has definitely crossed my mind, but test beds are just so ... open and thats no good for me when my drunk ass friends are playing in the game room with their beers dangerously close to my expensive shwag.

    Im gonna stick with the DD tower 21 for awhile... its really an awesome case.
