Haha, yeah.. And unashamedly so. I ran two old XFX 320MB 8800GTS cards in SLI quite a while back, pretty much just because I had two of them... The high temps and power draw really didn't justify the performance, but it looked pretty impressive.

Attachment 179533

i think i may have put the heatsink/fan the wrong way round, but hey-ho, it still keeps it cool.

i used a mobo auto-overclocking feature to crank the cpu from 3.3 to 4.2 GHz - I'm sure it'll go higher if i spend some time mucking around with voltages, not sure if i'll need to yet...maybe on a rainy day.

couldn't be bothered to do any benchmarking, but this new rig sure seems a lot swifter than it used to be.

Great rig MM, great upgrade choices

I have updated some of my stuff in my PC for the upcoming BF3!

I had a 512MB nVidia 9800GTX+ video card but that would not handle the BF3 Beta..

So I upgraded that to a MSi 2GB HD 6950 PE/OC (see pic below - not my pic)



Since I only had a 500w Antec PSU I figured I'd upgrade that while I was at it.

I went with the OCZ 700w Mod-Extreme Pro (see pic below - not my pic)


I also went from Windows 7 Home 32-bit to Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Nice GPU, that is quite a jump, enjoy

Thankyou very much, its suprising how much longer a build is just due to cable management.

Yeah it's definitely sweet so far. Only game I've tested is BC2 and it runs smooth!

I haven't owned much MSi products but it definitely looks great and a good deal Thanks

Yeah, but it is so pretty when it is done thoughtfully!

I prefer asus,but have built a few msi rigs and they have some nice features included for overclocking.

And the cable management is fun for me,it rounds up the entire rig,sort of like the cherry on top.
