    Perfect. Thanks guys. The 8800 GTX has to stay, always wanted one, don't know why. :) And the one i got is so quiet 80 % fan and under 60 degrees after 15 minutes of gameplay. And looks so good from the outside, it bearly has scratches on it. Perfect to collect it, just what i wanted.

    PSU Guide

    I know, i also considered going SLI, like getting another 470 or 2 to see how they do because they are dirt cheap. So if i pay the money i want to spend it once and be over with it for a very long time. For me a PSU is very important so i could mentally justify my choice and this is my excuse...

    Upgrade CPU + GPU for gaming

    Yep. The xeon path also drops for me, the ivy ones (v2) also use the same TIM paste and the sandy bridge ones, to old to find anywhere. Back to square one again. Wait to see how haswell will be if they don't have temp problems. If not, i wil track down a 2600/2700k and call it a day. Wait...
