Windows 7: GTX 480 SLI - Surprised Positively

GTX 480 SLI - Surprised Positively

So my new system is up and running (check specs)

After reading a bunch of reviews of GTX 480 and its noise problems i got a little worried, but it turns out it isn't as bad as you think, at least not for me. And they should really include a review based on how it sound with headset, cause that's a whole other matter.

I always game with headset and I'm sure a lot of others do as well, and if you are gaming, listening to music or watching movies with a pretty soundproof headset you can barely hear the computer. I mean, sure for those with surround speakers and stuff, it would be different. But I wouldn't really recommend a GTX 480 SLI setup unless you use a headset for most of your pc activities (ofc only based on my personal view, cause I don't like a lot of noise).

Just wanted to let you guys know, most of you probably allready know, but hey for those who don't, you know now

I'm enjoying my setup to the fullest, and haven't had a second of regret!

Hello. Your specs is great. But let me ask you something : why don't you use a bigger monitor ( tv ) for your rig ? I mean for gaming.

This has happened about 3 times now if not more than that. The Issue is: I just locked the system using win+L. When I came back, the screen is alright waiting for me to enter password. After entering the password, it should resume from where I left last, right? But surprisingly, I see all the...

What I immediately noticed is slower boot; slower program execution;...
