Gaghhhhh!!!

If I get an AM3+ board, I can use my 965BE in it until I can get a new FX CPU, BUT I'll need a new video card and OS. If I go with Trinity, I can get a mobo and APU and only need an OS then buy a 6670 later for a little boost. But why should I buy a new CPU (APU) when I have a perfectly good (albeit a power hog space-heating) quad-core doing nothing right now. Then Newegg hits me with this....

And truth is....I don't even need ANY of this! OCN, what have you done to me wheee.gif

Keep the space heater, it's winter. Then when you do an upgrade to your hardware you won't have to get a friend to help put your side panel on thumb.gif

I have my Scout 2 up and running with all my parts from my Trooper. I must say it's a joy to work with, easy, really easy cable management. Endless cooling options with the fans and great air flow. It looks way better in person than in the pics. Build quality is nicer than the first Scout. About the only real bad thing I can say about it is no 3.5" adapter for a card reader and it almost seems as if CM made it to were you would have to mod it for watercooling on purpose, but they are pretty much the same mods you would have to do to the first Scout but easier. The first Scout I'd rate to if it was new today I would give it a 8/10 if you don't need USB 3.0, if you need it/want it 7/10. It's an aging case compared to newer cases of today. The Scout 2 I give it a 9/10, if it came with a card reader I think I would give it a 9.5/10.

Right now I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on one of these first.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102993

I'd like the 6850, but it's a bit out of my budget.

I am going the AM3+ route. That means I'll need a new video card anyway, so might as well do that first.

I was coming very close to ordering my new motherboard and CPU, when I notice that the Maximus V Formula is an extended ATX board. Now my question is, will this fit in the original Scout? I notice that it goes about 1/2 an inch past the last screws on the right side. From what I can figure out on mine, it looks like it can, but I'll cover up part of the cable management hole on the top and might run into the cable tie downs.

I'm just wondering if anyone has fit a Maximus V Formula or a similar sized board into a Scout before without any issues. I'd really not like to buy a whole new case right now, as otherwise, I'd have to cut something on my budget.

Anybody know what the difference between the TI and non-TI version of this card is? Because I found it on the Walmart website.
