Shoulda compared performance in games that you play

I purchased some braided pci-e cables online and just had them installed. It looks much better now. I don't think i'll ever upgrade, I feel I have a perfect setup! Unless something breaks *knocks on wood* tongue.gif

Looks gorgeous! I'm probably going to pick up a 2nd 670 soon too. I need to deal with OCing my processor first though...

Do it! I went from a one 680 to two 670s, It was a a great upgrade.

Looks like we are still holding on t o our 1366 chips. thumb.gif

1366 is still a very relevant chipset biggrin.gif I would upgrade to haswell, but I'm headed off to the expensiveness that is college, so I don't really think I could justify any upgrade more than another 670, some hard drives, and sleeved extensions at the moment.
It's just a tiny bit outdated though... (example: my motherboard bottlenecks my SSD to 340ish Mb/s rather than the 510 Mb/s that it should reach)
