No. But a 120 might.

Ok Enigma I took your advice and bought some metal cast paint. Well see if I'm good enough to get the results you did. But a blow dryer? Cmon buddy this is OCN. I have a heat gun. If I turn it up to full it discharges 1000 (that's one thousand) degrees F air or 537c. Of course I don't want to incinerate the case, just warm it up a little.

dkev, you should use that 1000 degrees, it will make your case look like its been thru battle.

OK, I didn't know where to post this question, so I figured since I'm going to be putting it into my Scout this would be as good a place as any.

Here in the states it's tax return time and I'm torn between the HD 4770 and the Hd 4850 for my new build. I'm looking at the XFX cards at Newegg. Correct me if I'm wrong. Is 128-bit GDDR5 basically the same speed as 256-bit GDDR3? And If so, wouldn't I be better off getting the 1gig 4850 over the 512MB 4770 for only ten dollars more?

Ok so I finished painting my Scout. And using Enigma's recomondation, this is what I have. 3 coats of metalic blue Rustoleum, and 3 coats of Metal Cast. I was hesitant at first because the Metal Cast appeared from the lid to be a lighter color and I realy liked the blue I had. But to my suprise the Metal Cast actually deepend the metalic blue. Outstanding. Here are the results.




The new fans are on the way so I will let the case cure for a few days. I got 2 140 Xigi's with white LED's and a cold cathode kit for inside. We will see how it looks with the white Gelid fans on the side panel and let you be the judge.

The difference between the amount of RAM a video card has only makes a difference in how big your display can be at a certain resolution. I don't know the specifics, but for instance, with 512MB you might get something like 1024X768 but with 1GB you could get 1920x1080 or higher. Actually I think both of those are higher than what I stated but that should give you an idea.
GDDR5 is faster than GDDR3 no matter what bit path it takes. If you have 5 your frame rate increases because just like regular RAM it's going to process many more images in the same clock time. The bit path is only a restriction if the GPU is much faster than both the CPU and RAM on your motherboard. That will happen with anything though. It's a matter of pipe width. Before I left the army my First Sergeant told me "A pint can only hold a pint, if you pour a quart into a pint jar and it overflows at a pint, it's doing the best it can".
The same analogy applies to all things computer, you can't put a PCI-E card into an AGP slot, even if you had an adapter, it could only process AGP speeds. Hope I made that somewhat understandable.
Can't you afford the new ATI cards, like maybe a HD 5850? The GPU's on these baby's can process up to 1600 shader paths, that means 1600 parallel processes going on in one clock tick. Actually for the 5850 I think it's 1445. The ATI website has the stats.
