Smart. Making the exterior seem not so great so maybe it would keep theft away at college.

...& on an unrelated note...
Today I turned 27 years old..

..I did not have a party.

..I will not have a party.

..I have the day off from work.

..I shall go to Frys later for a new GPU.

..Then I will return home to install it.

..I guess I will be having a party, after all.
I agree completely.. That is just a cool sneaky way to have a all out gamer in a dormroom.

My PCI-Express slots on my motherboard is version 2.0

Should I stick with a 2.0 PCI-E GPU, or is it a better choice to use a version 2.1 (assuming I am correct, that it is backwards compatible)?

I'm leaning towards ATI 5770 because of my budget. Under $200.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150447

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102873

Since my budget is limited, but I do want to Crossfire, my plan is to buy 1 GPU at a time. Buy one today (which in turn will allow me to put my current 3870 in my other computer that is using onboard video) and later get a 2nd matching one to Crossfire.

Any opinions or suggestions? I am looking for recommendations on different cards (I would like to stick with ATI) in my budget, @bang for buck.

Nothing like getting a big box from NewEgg full of STUFF!

I will post pics once I get everything in my Scout up and running! I am excited, I get to finally be apart of the club!

Should have mine finalized later this week!

I don't know how I missed it, but I found the ESP12V extension cable that I needed, in the "tips and tricks" post at the beginning of the thread!

Also have three more Cooler Master R4's with Red LED's on order. I already have one of them, mounted on the lower hole of the Side panel, so its blasting air into my Radeon 5850 which has resulted in a drop in temps on the 5850.

I'll mount another R4 on the side Panel so it has two; and the other two R4's are going to be used on my Corsair H50; which will of course result in replacing the stock fan on the rear and it likely won't be connected to the LED button on the front of the case...

But oh well; thats not a big deal to me!

I see there is a wiring diagram/instructions at the beginning of the thread too, for wiring additional fans to that button so I might do that later in the future.

I also got a new SATA DVD reader on the way... yeah, I've been using IDE ones all this time and it looks like one of them finally failing. I don't need a Burner so just a Reader will suffice and it will save space in this Scout! That will let me mod an additional front panel fan near the top later on to if I want too!

Last night, using MSI Afterburner, I had my Radeon clocking at 950 Core , with Memory Clocked at 1175, at only 1165 volts and it stayed right at 60 celsius; while running MSI Kombuster (same as Furmark) for half an hour... so this Scout already some some good airflow going through it!

My jobless roommate is so frickin jealous that when I get home from work every day now, he's sitting on my computer playing my games, because his older Socket 939 build just can't handle it...

Oh I'll have some pics soon. I probably won't have the fans for a couple days though since I only just ordered them today at 3:30 EST. The order is still "processing"; so we'll see!

I'm hoping to have them before the end of the week.

I can say though that they seem a bit brighter then the stock Case Fans which in my opinion seem a little weak. I can barely see the Red LED's of the one on the front of my case unless I'm looking directly at it.

I also already have a pair of Green R4's in my Thermaltake Armor Case, my Black Sparrow build. They certainly are not as bright as most Blue LED fans but they are most certainly visible and have a nice warm glow to them in the front of my Armor.

I'm gonna try to get some pics of the Storm Scout with the Red's installed as soon as I receive them!

Take a look at this POST by PCSarge!

He posted pics of his H50 with red R4's in his Case! Its what convinced me to go with them for myself! Speaking of mine, while looking up his post there, i just got an email from Performance PC tell me that they just shipped mine out!

Woo hoo!
