    I completely agree.

    My wow frame rates are a little better on the laptop due to the better processor. I really need to get a new motherboard and a CPU for the desktop but I dont have the money for it atm, my frame rates would go sky high, GTX670 is a beast.

    Feast your eyes on this beast, then:

    Inside it's full of zip ties and MacGyver solutions. I added a fanmate directly to the graphics card, because open source drivers refused to adjust fan speed.

    Specs: X2 4200+, 2gigs of DDR2, 20GB Intel SSD and Radeon HD 4670. Not my main gaming rig, though.

    Glorious PC gaming master race!

    i7 4770k @4.5ghz
    G Skill 8GB @1600mhz
    Corsair AX760
    Corsair H100i
    Corsair Neutron GTX 240gb
    Crucial M4 64gb
    2x7970 @1050/1550

    Peripherals:
    ASUS PB278Q - 1440p monitor
    LG IPS224v - 1080p portrait monitor
    O2 + ODAC
    KRK Rokit 5 as speakers
    Sennheiser HD598

    Was thinking about selling my 7970 and getting a R9 290 or 780, but the 780 is still too expensive here in Brazil and I really really don't want a R9 290 with a reference cooler and I don't want to wait. So I just decided to save some money and bought an used 7970 and made a crossfire. Pretty happy.

    I sometimes organise operas, like This one

    Camilla: You, sir, should unmask.
    Stranger: Indeed?
    Cassilda: Indeed, it's time. We have all laid aside disguise but you.
    Stranger: I wear no mask.
    Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!

    Nice pictures. Are those stock PCIe connectors though? I find aftermarket ones don't brand it as "VGA" and the like.

    yeah they are the stock cables, im going with those for now because the 780ti classified should drop in a couple weeks or so, and i wanna have the bench rig ready to push it to the max :P

    I have materials to do custom length cables on me, im gonna make that a project for this week.

    Need to hook up my Corsair H100 when I get a chance and do some cable tidying at some point.

    Both at 1200 Core, 3500 (7000) Vram, boost pushes the cores up to 1260~1300, depending. Idle temps of 30 degrees, 60~65 for the lower one under Furmark, 65~73 for the top one.

    Decided to sit out of upgrading them atm, I want to see what's coming next year first.
