well, I'll let you know what happens Sat.

New desk + 3 monitors = Metro 2033 @ 5760x1080 2aa + AAA = from what I've heard, 580's on Richard Simmons' sweatin' to the oldies.

Another thing, I've heard 9800GTs hurt performance as dedicated physx with 480s/580s and anything lower than a GTS 250 is not ideal.

Don't know where to get the foam filters but these grills look sweet

I hate that the crosshair aluminum ones are so pricey

Interesting. Too bad they're sold out.

Problem is, where would they go? Outside or inside the side window. It would be mounted: filter->window->fan->grill or window->filter->fan->grill. I worried that the filter wont be flush with the window or it would interfere with the blades.

Nice! Maybe on the inside? The fins on the plastic sticks out a bit. Wouldn't be flat. Might need longer screws though.

I wonder if they'd help with the noise

It seems that they have countersunk mounting holes for a flush look. If they get in the way, I can sand them down..but the hole will get bigger. Can you get longer fan screws with a larger head at lowes/home depot?

Can't see why not. Got around a fan mounting problem that way with the old CodeGen case. Got some really long ones and had a friend cut them down to size. Home Despot or the local hardware store FTW

Can anyone please tell me if the new 6970s from ATI will fit inside the scout? It measures approximately 10.75 with connectors on the side. I plan to not use any case modification, just pop it in.

This is one of the reasons I hate the scout, the graphics card clearance is so small!


Thanks,
Fellow Scout Member

Short answer is no.
Both the 6950 and 6970 are longer than the 6870 which only just fits in. You will need to either cut out the HDD cage or have a top slot pcie motherboard so the card sticks into the 5.25 bays.

I believe the maximum amount of space is 10.5 inches although im sure someone will correct me

I can't believe the 6970 is longer than the 580...guess that's the price paid for that extra 1GB VRAM. (over the 5870, or 464MB over the 580)

Anyone see that new GTS 450 (Colorful iGame GTS 450) single slot!
Fastest single slot card ever apparently...and looks sexy.

Funny name. Source.

Should be ordering my 6870 when I get home from work. Getting the standard msi one as the twin frozr is £40 more and I dont plan on overclocking the gpu anyway.

£188.80 on scan isnt bad for a 6870
