Just picked up a Ultra X2 750 Chrome and Blue lit with custom blue wires off ebay not working for $10. I plan to gut it and transplant a new PCB. I got it for the cosmetics, I think it will look great and matches the coloring perfectly! biggrin.gif

Well its for my Brother! I honestly haddent even heard of the game until recently lol. Not sure if he is playing it yet, I know this build he wanted specifily for the game so he may start the game fresh with it. But I will ask him. thumb.gif

Also I would love you input as I make progress on this build since you are already planing SC, I think any insite would be great! What specs do you run it on? thinking.gif
