Sounds good man and that sounds like a good board, I really took my time with this build and bought everything on sale at a good price. I know my motherboard isnt top of the line but it does exactly what I need for it to do and was only $104 from newegg.com with free shipping. biggrin.gif

The cards are pretty beefy but dont think they are so heavy that they will need any type of support to keep from bending, I could be wrong but I think the Gigabyte plate mounted on the side of the GPU could possibly be some type of support bar designed to keep the cards from sagging over time.

7400 Memory is way too high. You need to bring that down.

Care to say why I need to bring it down? It doesnt even crash until I get to +900 on the ram but I would never run it that high for 24/7 use. +700 is where I decided to stay for daily gaming but if you can provide solid proof as to why it needs to be lower for this particular card then im all ears.

Perhaps your card can handle the added memory speeds but from testing of members on this forum speeds over 6800 offer diminishing returns. The only real place where more memory speed shows improvement over 6800 is 3dmark

Okay thanks for that info, I might back it down to +600 for everyday use. I wonder if Crysis or Crysis Warhead would be an exception to the rule since those games are bandwidth hungry which favors ATI cards?

When overclocking memory guys, ALWAYS use EVGA OC scanner from if your using Precision. The little button on the bottom left that says "test". If your memory is overclocked too far it'll show up on EVGA OC scanner as artifacts. Its pretty reliable. I don't rely on it for core overclock because most of the time a game just crashes when the core is unstable, but memory will keep going and OC scanner will catch artifacts if the memory is overclocked too far.

its only to high if your card can not handle it.

All you're making with that speed is more heat. I doubt it offers any benefit at that speed

Wit that memory I am able to keep up with 670's that are 50-70mhz higher on the core then mine. So it does for sure help.
