Trolling?

Idle at 50c is not hot at all


Two 8800GT's for $65 is a steal though

Great deal. I'm still running a single BFG 8800GT. I had it nicely overclocked back in the day. That SLI setup should allow you to get decent FPS on the recent games.

50*C idle was COOL for the 8800GT's with reference coolers. Mine loaded at 93*C with a custom 80% fan speed. And that was after applying Shin Etsu to it.

And PNY makes great reference cards. Do it. Even if you don't fold on them, that's still a killer price on those cards. Even if you turned around and resold them later. Or vmod the crap out of them .

Also, we're discussing intel because it seems like there's no way to enforce pure-AMD build threads in this forum. It should be renamed the 'you really want intel instead' forum.
