i have an account on their site as i got my daughter a EVGA GTX 460
i'll have a looksy. thanks

edit: been playing arma2 for last few hours with no probs fps is'nt very good but its an old game thats pretty hungry lol
gpu1 max boost i saw was 1087
gpu2 was 1037
spec'd is 1085
gpu1 avrg temp was about 54c in arma while gpu2 was always 7-10 cooler with fans running about 50%.
i managed between 50 n 90fps depending on sceenary which is really good for arma
overall a huppy bunny. the lobby ingame is a fkr though as the cards get pretty hot pretty quick depending how long ur in the lobby.
bf3 fps should be loads better

As an afterthought Ryan, this is my first nVIDIA card too and it's about two years old. It seems to me both AMD and nVIDIA use us as guinea pigs for drivers, about every 3rd one works, at least my experience.

yup i agree with that one. gonna get probs with both at times enit. i was just lucky to never get any probs with AMD oh i tell a lie, 11.11 used to crash every 10 mins lol.

edit: not my lucky wk though. my cm quickfire pro came today and its either DOA or being a pain in the arse with my bios. no matter which usb port used i get no keyboard detected at startup. ive read that they wont work with some 990FX boards and some UEFI bios's. my luck lol. i wont update my bios just for the sake of a keyboard. my rig runs nice so i'll leave it as is

cheers chap although i did try it in different ports

edit: always the simple things enit. you'd think id have learned by now. because the cable is just that little bit too short i used a usb extension lead. the lead is ok as i use it with my other keyboard but it wont work with the new one lol....strange

ello chaps
finally managed to get my led's replaced and its mad how much of a difference it makes. untill my last led's died i did'nt get any headaches from starin at my monitors all day but after a while of not having them i get loads. for some reason having a bit of light behind the screens ease's the eye strain

they look a bit brighter in the pics than they are. they look pink too lol but they are purple n red

cheers chap
the colour coding of the wires confused me at first lol as its backwards to normal. live = black, blue,red and green are all neutral but if u twist any combo of the coloured wires together as neutral u get to mix the colours
save buying loads of different colours if u can't make your mind up lol. mixin the colours got me alsorts. yellow,purple,turquiose,white,red,blue and green.



edit:
ive had chance to do plenty of gaming now. not many different games but enough to see what these cards r like. the colours seem more vibrant than with my 6950 and all games ive played run really nice except arma2. well it runs nice for an old game and i have to have vsync enabled as my cards just heat up loads when in the lobby. bf3 and cs:go run great too with silly frame rates
im gonna get me another monitor after crimbo too. im liking the look of this samsung as its a really close match to what my other 2 look like. same size n res but 120hz. Samsung S23A700D 23" 120Hz 3D
happy so far
