    CrazyPC.com Going out of business sale

    I liked them as well. I've purchased a few things from them over the years, and have been happy with their service., The only gripe I have, along with many online companies, is that their S&H was high.

    CrazyPC.com Going out of business sale

    I got an email mailer from CrazyPC.com saying that they are going out of sale. I saw a few things that were pretty cheap such as a Thermalright VenomousX for $49.99. Take a look-see, and hopefully you'll find something cheap. http://www.crazypc.com/other/misc/promos/closing.htm

    [WTB][US] 160 to 250gb SATA hard drive

    If you are looking for a new drive instead of a used one, this might help. From what I've seen, the 160GB drives usually cost about the same as 250GB drives. If you are located in the US: Directron.com Western Digital Caviar SE 160GB - $35.99 + S&H http://www.directron.com/wd1600aajs.html...

    ZOTAC Takes GeForce GTX 560 Ti Series to New Performance Heights with AMP! Edition

    Typo. Someone catch that? Aside from the color scheme, the card looks cool. Kinda wish I didn't pull the trigger on getting a GTX460

    $20 amazon gift card for $10

    Scooby609, my bad. I guess I should've read the fine print about usage in the US. For sure though you can make multiple purchases as long as you use different email accounts to register. All of my purchases were made through my debit card, and my bank account showed that the transactions have...

    $20 amazon gift card for $10

    It'll work for all Amazon.com sites world-wide. It just acts as a money voucher on your account that can be applied to any purchases made so long as you have an Amazon account. BTW, I bought 12 and got 5 of them free through referrals. WHAT UP!!!

    Antec Unveils New Sonata IV Enclosure

    $199.99 is just way too high of an asking price for what you get. With that PSU being included, I say no more than $89.99

    EVGA Intros Backplate for GeForce GTX 570

    It's so glorious!!! I agree with Randomflip. They really need to make one for the GTX460s because those things look like the bomb diggity. I don't care if it's non-functional just as long as it looks good.

    How are you cooling your graphics card? got something special/different? show it off.

    How are you cooling your graphics card? got something special/different? show it off.

    True, true. I only got the aftermarket cooler because the bearings on the OEM fan was faulty and made a horrible sound. Well, also because I like aftermarket shtuff and installing it makes me feel manly. I probably won't upgrade my card until this one dies, or if I find one that is incredibly...

    How are you cooling your graphics card? got something special/different? show it off.

    Arctic Cooling makes some really good stuff for such a low price. I have AC F fans in my case and they are very quiet, and best of all, CHEAP! I almost pulled the trigger on getting the AC Accelero Extreme Plus for the GTX460, but it would've been over-kill, plus it costed ~$25 (with the VR005...

    How are you cooling your graphics card? got something special/different? show it off.

    950 is a beast of a jump. I've just kept mine at 810 for gaming, and 865mhz being the highest I've tried so far without voltage tweaking. I've thought about it, but I haven't had the time to mess around much. I don't know when I'll find the time to do so. That thing is equivalent in size to...

    It'd be pretty dope if it was 1/2 inch deeper. I've had a few different cases from different manufacturers, but once I got this Lian-Li I don't think I'll switch back to any other brand. The build quality is pretty awesome. Plus, the fact that I picked it up from Newegg for $80 makes it all the...

    Sorry to all for the late reply. Better late than never, but never late is better. I get great cooling from the Icy Vision. After 3 hours of SC2 at High-Ultra settings it doesn't crack 46C, and usually idles between 26C-28C. (Note: My room is heated to about 70F)

    Thanks, I appreciate it! I know cable management could be better, but there's only so much you could do with less than 3/4 of an inch behind the motherboard tray.

    How often do you change your graphic card?

    When it's dirt cheap to do so. Upgraded from an EVGA 9800GTX+ to a PNY XLR8 GTX460 1GB for $135 after MIR, Free S&H, no Tax, and discounts from JR.com. I'm from CA, so no sales tax is DOPE! Btw, that EVGA OC'ed like nobody's business. I'm always one step behind in the game (GTX500s now...
