    After a quick search on UK postage, it looks to be roughly double that to post to Finland/Europe.

    So around £30 or so, which is around 36 euros at the moment.

    Hmmh, at that price I won't bite. I already sent them an email to see what their offer is, though.

    Thats a very nice deal! Great buy

    It's very quiet under load, have the card at 1170MHz on stock voltage and it eats any game I throw at it.
    BF4 runs at 100-120 fps, but the great thing about it is how smooth it feels in-game, I really like this card!

    Out with the old:



    In with the new:



    What the build looks like now:



    I dropped my RAID and plopped back in a Vertex 3 for an OS drive in favor of external USB 3 backups and weekly imaging. Also had to take apart the whole build to get some washers between the motherboard and H80i so it made better contact. Dropped my temps under stress tests by 15-20c. Last time I buy cooling from Corsair, should never need to jump through so many hoops to get proper compatibility.

    I felt almost sad taking out the 7970 Ghz. XFX nailed that series in aesthetics and build quality. It will probably be a while until we see another card design using 100% metal aside from fans and the PCB. That thing was a tank.

    What work do you do to need the RAM and the i7? (just curious)

    I play on a year old business class Lenovo Thinkpad (do not even remember the model right now and not home atm).
    Using about 6 year old Logitech Revolution MX wireless lasermouse.
    And I am not even jealous at your gaming rigs. They are awesome, but I don`t feel the need for anything like that.

    I use a laptop because I move around very much.

    For some, it's a hobby and a passion. Like myself, I enjoy swapping bits out every now and again. Others just want to play the games and don't care what the specs are as long as it works. Neither are wrong, just different.

    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.

    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.
