  • Oh yeah, the case was awesome lol, pretty expensive though. Was designed in conjunction with BMW, and me being a car junkie, my heart just set haha. Hot swappable bays are really cool, and bunches of other cool extra features. (multicolor LED fans were a killer :mrgreen: )

    Well, that's one beast of a pc alright, you might as well get a 680 though.

    I researched it and it didnt perform much better than the 670 for its price, especially considering i can overclock it if i need to (which i wont... for a while at least)... I read this article extensively, and for my purposes, the 670 was a better choice: http://www.anandtech.com/show/…x-670-review-feat-evga/18

  • I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but when you factor in the +$200 case, how can you not justify the extra few bucks on a 680 for a gaming machine...or maybe even two?


    Nice setup 8O

    My wife has 2 680's eraser :mrgreen: although we recently realised one is not working since a clean install got to be a driver issue I guess, although even one is killer. I,d go 680 all the way in that rig its not like your skimping on anything else.

  • Yeah, well even the mighty eraser has limits :P thanks evil. And imho, 2x680s would be overkill, unless you're going for longetivity (which I'm assuming you are). And we (my father and I) actually kinda were scrimping/skimping, cause he told me to choose between the 7950 and the 670, so if i came to him and told him 680 he'd probably tell me to fuck off lol. Anyhow, good luck with fixing your 2nd 680. I think it should be covered by default warranty if im not mistaken, at least for a month or so...

    Bit late for that, isn't it? :P Either way, I'm not going for the fastest single GPU, just one that gives good performance for its price, of which the 670 is doing very well. :)
