    That looks really nice Asera! ^^

    OT:
    Might add for the sake of the topic that I have started a new project for a friend. He isn't exactly a gamer, but he and I have some pretty neat ideas for a budget computer that will work as a sound system and a home theater. Not sure what I will actually end up doing with the budget he gave me though, but it should be fun.

    You mean like our own flag? Haha, sure. But it would probably have to be "unofficial". Have any ideas?

    He hasn't decided yet actually. He is planning to buy 2 monitors, a pretty hefty 2.1 sound system, a new headset and a new computer. I'm pretty sure he is leaning towards a new desk as well. Basically that is what he has told me so far, and that the budget will be around $1500-3000 depending on how much he can work the upcoming month.

    Something with the normal mmo-champion logo but with "Computer Forum Gurus" or something under it. ^_^

    @second part: Have him get a 2.1 set from this line...

    He'll need to up that budget though. Buttttt it'll sound bloody amazing..... and make Bose surround sound systems sound bad.

    You built it 2 weeks ago? I'm sorry to say but unless you're doing some very specific things with your PC, you more or less wasted your money on old out-dated hardware. I would have suggested the i7-2600K over that if you really needed the hyper-threading. The 2500K would still beat that CPU as well.

    Looks good to me. You did a wise choice not going for the 2600k; it performs the same in games compared to the 2500k. But heck, that 850W PSU is wasted in that setup unless you plan to go 3-way SLI <insert card with 3-way SLI capabilities here> in the future. How are you liking that case btw?

    You can't triple-SLI the GTX560/GTX560Ti.


    (And the case is fantastic, although, I have the USB2.0!)

  12. #3832
    Haven't got the stuff since I ordered it yesterday, but heard from a friend that 560ti sli takes about 750w and since I want space for some more stuff I'd go with some more then needed for future but my friend also used that case and apparantly it's a really nice case

    I like where you're headed, but make it a little more apparent we're specifically talking the computer forums and not just mmo-champion on a laptop's screen. :P The background is sexy though.

    I really won't dwell more into this. It really isn't on-topic either... but here are my "finals":

    Updated with drastically more effective cooling, now featuring a 320mm low-rpm (and dead silent) side fan:



    Seriously, this thing fucking works. 10-12c lower on GPU, 3-4c less on CPU. Side window goes back on when I'm not gaming, just takes a few seconds, saves me the trouble of dust
