Staying on topic as usual I have a/a few question(s) for you guys.

In your opinion, would it be beneficial for me to sell my core i7 860 and HD 4890 for 350 euros to a friend of mine and then get a core i3 530 and a HD 5870 and clock the juice out of that core i3? I mainly use my system for gaming, browsing the web and watching some movies and stuff, so my electrical bill would be reduced quite a bit if I were to do this "trade".

Seeing as I'm going to overclock this processor quite a bit since I got an awesome cooler (and case with magnificent airflow, thanks CoolerMaster ! ) it shouldn't be that far, if at all, behind my core i7 in games such as WoW, CoD:MW2, BF:BC2, should it?

TL;DR version: Would I benefit from trading my i7 860 and HD 4890 for a core i3 530 and HD 5870 as I mainly do some gaming, browsing the internets and watching movies on my computer?
1: On most games, a higher clocked dual (and those i3's clock friggen fast ) will best a slower quad. BC2 DOES take advantage of a quad, however, as will, i anticipate, most/all DX 11/new games.
2: I like how you incorporated the case into that

I think that this is a great question. I guess I wonder now: does the Thread Starter of a club have to ask the staff to make it official? I mean, this thread's title used to say that it's the "official" CM 690 club, but it was changed several months ago, and I think it was changed by a staff member.

That thought actually did cross my mind, but I kinda wanted the best graphics card I could afford at the time. However, seeing as the XFX HD 5850 costs roughly 300 euros in Finland at the moment, and the HD 5870 being about 100 euros more expensive, I guess it's gonna be the HD 5850 for me.

1. True, I guess it just wouldn't be worth getting a dual-core at the moment as new games are more and more CPU reliable.

2. Thank you.

Your macro's while indeed very large(epeen?), are impossible to view on 99% of monitors out there. In the future might I suggest saving us all some throughput by resizing your photos.

Nice rig by the way.

Nice rig, NemesisCavalry! I especially and personally love how the X-Fi logo sticks out like that. It's like the logo itself is lit up by some kind of backlighting that's glowing through the logo, kinda like how backlights on a keyboard glow through the lettering on the keys!
