Hey fellow scouts,

I am in need of some advice, I am having a bit of trouble deciding on a GPU. I am deciding between an ASUS GTX 470($300) and an ASUS GTX 465($225). The main differences I have been reading is that the 465 runs a bit cooler. They look too be the same size as one another so that shouldnt be an issue. I am going to be running an AMD based setup so SLI'ing isnt an option without modifying, besides that I have always just preferred a single card solution. The main purpose of the card will be to play ffxiv and any other current games that come out. I would like to play them on high, but I dont need to be able to run them at a bajillion fps on max with 16x AA lol.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
Josh

Is there any specific reason why you are going with an Asus and not like EVGA, MSI, and etc?

All you need to cutout the plastic bullseye is a very sharp utility knife and time and the metal grill can be cutout with some dikes and smoothed out with a file.
Looks nice. Thanks for the help. Now I have to find the local Hobby Shop.

I hope I didn't break any rules. I posted basically the same question in the Case Mod section. Then I remembered the Storm Scout Club and asked the same question here.

we kind of have our own "set" of rules here. You asked about a Scout so I think you're ok.

A Pair of Dykes..

Today..................................................

People in the Trade
..........................


Dykes is a really old name for "Side/or Diagonal Cutters". If you said "side cutters or Diagonal Cutters" to an Electrician, he would automatically know that you were a smart assed Noob that knows nothing about hand tools..

But, if you call them a Pair of "Dykes" The Expert automatically knows that you Are very good with "Hand Tools".... Ironic huh.

So this is the common tool for Cutting out the metal mesh and the plastic Crosshairs that is on the front of the Storm Scout Case front.



Here is a Picture of a Rig with out the Crosshairs.

Gen. E. Your description is both informative and comical, but not completely accurate. Also known as linesman pliers, these are the proper tool when referring to side cutters

...i believe the proper term for the tool the Gen. E is showing is:

Diagonal Cutter's . . . . .
