The 6970s are currently watercooled, but I have the original HSF I can put back on them. So I may either sell the blocks, or just wait and liquid cool their rigs as well at a later date.
Those Crysis 3 pics are insane. I was hoping that this steam sale would have it at least 50% off. But its not on the master list of the steam games for sale this year.
Sounds good. Getting a second 7970 should not be so expensive anymore. You can find some used, or new at a very fair price. Always get last gen cards for a good price
Like the others said, it's on Origin only (sadly).

when this game drops however, i plan to go all out on a vid card - finally a game to justify 1k-ish on a card.
No doubt, it will probably be the new Crysis for us. "But can it run Star Citizen" anyone?
I can understand why you chose midrange cards, if you play at 1080p it has been enough in most games really.
But that is changing with SC!

Edit: Oh, and I think I'll wait even trying Crysis 3 until I get more space between my 770's
Guess we will have to learn to live with Origin, I REALLY wish I could have all my games on Steam.
Even though my hatred for EA is large, they still have some strong and good titles, so we will have to use Origin anyways.
Perhaps a wise decision hehe, but not long now until you get my "old" motherboard
