Good lord... 2 of those should do you justice. You know they run warmish right? Rivatuner to the rescue. Just set the minimum fan speed from 40 to 60% while gaming. I've found it to work wonders. It dropped my temps by about 20*C I hope that beast of a case you have breathes well.

Well, the cards are installed and running in SLI without any problems. 7 installed the drivers and then asked if I want to connect them and done

Even the wife is still talking to me..., although she did think that this was an excuss to go and spend the same on her
