You sent this to my house right? I'll be sure to test it out for you and work out the kinks.

NO SSD's?
I bet you would like them!
Best bang for the buck in my opinion.


Why not Intel?

Just curious Blood, because I'm looking at a new build for Brink.

I had two 4890's in Crossfire.

I didn't think there was that big of a boost.

And I had heat issues constantly.
Finally pulled one and stuck with a single card.
So you might think of some cooling options.

Of course.... I only play ETQW... so I have a limited perspective.

Would like to know how it works out for you though!

From what I have read that is an ETQW thing. Games that use OpenGL are more prone to crossfire issues than those that use DirectX.

Get a Corsair H50 CPU cooler. Self-contained liquid cooler. Not only way cooler, but almost silent to boot.

They just came out with an H70. I just bought an H50 and installed it literaly yesterday. I still have to open my case and put a fan on it (perhaps I need to tinker with the case fan arrangement a bit to fix this) but with the H50 my CPU now runs at 40C instead of 47C while playing ET.

For a second, I thought you had Johnny Cash confused with Elvis Presley!

Maybe I should start work a bit more on my computer again, not that is sucks, it still rocks with the i7 proccesser, but maybe some more ram, and a blue-ray drive would not hurt.

The Best Buy site skipped the LGA 1366 on it's specs page, but Corsair says it's supported:

"Socket Support:
AMD AM2, AMD AM3,
Intel LGA 1155, Intel LGA 1156, Intel LGA 1366, Intel LGA 775 "
