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

Nice one, Glad to hear they are running well. And it should be great with 3 screens!


I have been doing a little tidying up in my case earlier, It's not perfect at the back, but a darn sight better than it was before I started! And I tidied up the visible cables inside a little more also.

I think it's as good as it will get for me anyway.


Paul.

Thanks

660 is running real nice, its running all the games I play how I want to play them.

I had to back off on a lot of settings with the old 560, with the 660 I don't

Nice job Paul. Looks very neat. In case you don't realize it, the inside of the case looks better than the back though.

I can say that the case he is using, the Antec 1100, has a huge amount of room behind the mobo tray for cable management. I don't know about Paul, but while I was working on the layout behind the tray, I got really lazy and didn't spend as much time as I should have on it. Paul's rig is super-clean though.

I concur there Kelly, when I first put it together I spent absolutely zero time on the layout at the back, I just make it look ok on the inside and chucked the back panel on

But someone asked me for some pics of my case earlier and I figured it was time to give it a bit of a spruce up

I agree, Kelly. That was the first thing I noticed. I have a decent amount of space behing my MB tray, but there is no way I could bunch my wires together like Paul did. Sitting on it wouldn't help.
