maybe:) I want the inhanced FoV for BF3:) and other shooters. Its truly amazing! but overall its a personal preference. Some peep's prefer a single larger monitor, other prefer multiple smaller. for me it depends on what I do with the PC. IMO gaming rig=eyefinity/surround:)

Crucial m4 128gb drive:) there is a reason the TOXIC are sold out everywhere. They are very popular. They have a stupid high unlock rate, and overclock like no other. mine hits 960/1500, and give's amazing results...I was going to xfire them but now it looks like my back up rig(they beat me) will be getting my toxic and I'm going to be going 7950 or 7970 xfire or see what the 6XX cards have to offer.

You can find them used all the time. I have had some good offer's on mine in the last month or so lol.

Well mine happens to be a bad apple on the overclocking; 930@ 1.212 volts. It can almost do 1.2 volts; stable in every game except tf2 which it artifacts in.

every card cant unlock and clock like a dream. If your card did unlock with the powertune mod you still have a ripping card. Have you tryed to OC with it unlocked and with it locked?
