    haha, I'll post pics once I'm home from school. I can remote in and start some benchmarks though! It still needs quite a few windows updates to be 100% done.

    Woo benchmarks!

    Picked up a 2nd GTX470 and went push/pull on the CPU HSF:

    I think I'll pick up a small SSD (~60GB) to use in addition to the 320GB HDD I have right now :toast:

    No offense, but your 480 needs upgraded, everything else you own is elite... why such an old GPU? :confused:

    Tbh it has been able to handle every game I play very decently (performance at OC clocks is quite close to GTX 580). I used to have GTX 580 for a year, but then I haven't had much time to play anyway although I need ton of CPU performance.

    That said, I will get GTX 780(s) or whatever comes out next year. Just because I can. Don't really need it.

    Yes, it's old, but it's still wicked fast. Until today, I was rocking a GTX470 in my system..I just picked up a second one, but that was more for WCG than for any real need for speed in games :)

    My raid is still faster :cool:, but after spending nearly $2,500 on this build I need to pay off the old credit card and gather more money for round 2.;)

    Not really there isn't much call for serious muscle in pc gaming atm, because most everything is toned down so hard because of shitty consoles rocking nearly decade old hardware. Were not going to get better looking games until the next gen of consoles.

    Which is one of the many reasons consoles need to die now!

    I dont know if you guys remember my last post on here, i think my build was an

    X4 965amd
    bigwater IS 760
    evga 580 (mightve been the 560ti or the gtx460)
    haf912
    kingston 8bg ram
    some unknow aprevia 650w psu

    but with in the last 2 months ive been looking for deals and got some awesome deals, and even an awesome trade. With patience i slowly got rid of my old build as i progressed to my new build, spending less than 300$ if that. original "budget build" was set at 400$ now i have this rig including the monitor and desk

    [​IMG]

    thanks to Techpowerup, craigslist, frys and microcenter for pricematching i hardly spent half a paycheck if anything.

    specs

    Case - HafX
    CPU - i7 2600k
    GPU - Gigabyte SOC 580
    PSU - Fatality 750 w
    Mobo - MSI z77a-g45
    Ram - Gskill Ripjaw 1600mhz
    Antec Khuler 620 for the cpu

    i was out of a job for the longest time, and while building this i kept the same mentality, apparently it payed off. i even got bf3 for free :)

    PS, yes those are server fans. my room has carpet its nowhere near cool in this room

    I know I've seen that case somewhere before, but I can't quite put my finger on it . . . . it looks very familiar . . .;)

    I can see that, sorry it was a little dusty on the inside, but it's a damn great case, I'm kinda sorry i let it go, but I am really enjoying my new build too.



    A taste . ..

    This. I have a 470 OC and it makes chop suey of BF3 on ultra, and that's without overclocking it. You wanna drop 300 bucks on a card when I can get nearly the same performance without spending more money to "upgrade" go for it.

    I agree. In fact some of my buddies are still running the gtx 200 series with no gaming issues lol! It is not always necessary to jump on the latest piece of hardware, I think I will be happy with my 570 for a long time.:cool:

    At lower resolutions like 1050, or 1080, yes there is little to no reason to upgrade from a 4xx or 5xx series card, however on 30 inch monitors like mine I do need a 680 to have things turned up to max settings.

    Also if you want to bring your video card to its knees attempt to run the sleeping dogs benchmark on extreme settings, that gives even SLI rigs issues!:toast:
