nice machine/log. I enjoyed it. I'm probably going to do this when I build my machine next week, my parts aren't as amazing but it should be a sweet experience (first build)

Nice pics btw, I can't wait to see it finished. Did you take any videos or just pictures?
Nah, no vids Just been snapping as I go.

Yeh vantage could be screen grabbed...but I was wondering if the file could be uploaded from my other machine. It seems not though

I'm just going to get a wireless usb key and plug it in when I want to validate stuff.

Got the 695 from America bud A guy was selling the retail versions on ebay. I got lucky.

The first 285 was from America too but the other two are from Scan here in the UK.

Ebuyer are by far the cheapest by a long way but they don't have the interesting things like Classifieds and 2GB 285s

I only used scan because they had what others didn't. Most of the things I've bought are from ebuyer. They also delivery next day if you order before around 8pm

Decided to put the third 285 2GB in to see what I'd get. It's the one in the middle and the whole thing is now a heat sandwich.

Now lets see if I can still sell the 3rd one

I'm looking forward to building WC into it

Got 32016 in Vantage at 100% stock.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to sell the 3rd video card and get better than onboard sound? You're not going to see a difference between 2 and 3 285s in almost every game out there since you'll be above 60 fps, but you get second rate sound quality, which I think hinders the gaming experience. I think gaming is more than just the fps.
