    No, I was hopeful for more interest :( I guess its not a big deal, I will most likely end up going retail when I see a great deal then sell my old card to recover the cost. If I go retail I am going to try and keep the GTS 250 to fold on anyway, looks too good :)

    +1 to this, love dark rigs :D


    Just cooked up some temperature readout screenies for you guys

    Prime 95 10 minutes max heat mode
    CPU,stock fan 100%,horizontally aligned heatsink ( airflow in upwards direction)
    [​IMG]
    Mostly they stuck around 30 but one core would blip back and forth between 31/32 bringing the other cores with it every now and then. No idea what ambient is but its warm enough to sit in shorts :laugh:


    GPU,stockfan 100%, Furmark no extreme burn.
    [​IMG]

    I like my new heat-sinks : ]

    Great setup!
    Seems strange tho not to have your best GPU with your best CPU :eek:
    Loving the all-black theme!
    Is that the NZXT Beta Evo?

    You guys think Win7 x32 could run smoothly on a computer with an Athlon 64 3800+ CPU and 1GB of DDR 400?

    yeah, but more ram would help. my mums system is weaker than that, and while it works things are a bit slow (programs run fine, but load times are poor, and things like transferring files take a few seconds to start up)

    lol wut? I was was talking about getting another gigabyte of memory for the computer so that Windows 7 would run a bit better.

    It has XP on it now and it's basically a clusterfuck of bloatware and junk. Needs a reinstall. They'll be all like "ooh aahhh it feels like a brand new computer" and will give me ever how much money I ask for :D

    Found no where to place the rad, didn't want to complicate things with the mounting of the rad. Plus this was sent to me just for folding :toast:

    Thanks dude. :toast:

    WOW!!! Great deal on camera :rockout: At that price it wasn't a deal it was a steal. Retail is around 229.00 on that 14.1 megapixel camera. Congrats to you on that one! :respect:

    It's not that they treat it like that, they just never realize it. Most people never even open a computer, let alone dust and clean it. Even if most people saw dust in their computer, I think they'd be too scared to clean it in fear of "messing something up."

    I'm using regular Eyefinity way via Crossfire 5850. As I know TripleHead2Go can't handle resolution more than 1680x1050 per screen and it's too expensive :shadedshu

    Yeah that shit is like $300. Well I've been wanting triple screens but the cost is too much for now. Maybe later after I get my new rig.

    You can get 3 cheap 19' screens with 1440x900 and 5770 for eyefinity. Once you'll try 3 screens you'll never want back to 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c79m9iCJh4g
