Everythings noticeably faster than with the 5770, but the cpu is now the cause of any slowdown. for example in crysis warhead i can run around a detailed area with everything on high (res at 720p) and its great but as soon as some enemies and AI elements (work only the cpu can do) are involved its gets a bit jumpy.

Another big boost was in mirrors edge, its one of them games that if it cant hit 60fps it locks to 30fps with the 5770 i'd only get 60fps at 720p, with the 6870 its 60fps at 1080p 90% of the time, again as with crysis only slows when theres lots of action.

I'll most likely put a Quad in it next.

A good idea. Nice to know you got a real good bump in the mean time.

Right now CPU/Core speed is the biggest determining factor [CPU Wise] in 90% of games. If you can overclock your Core 2.
Puny Power!

Anyone bothered by the open USB and Sata ports on top? I'm thinking about making a lid for it or something

Yeah I use it a lot too but I'm concerned about dust getting into the ports when not in use. It might be a nice aesthetic addition as well.

Not really. Though I'm worried about my usb cords and prolonged use. They might end up crapping out like a pair of cheap ear buds.

I kinda want to buy the extra orange nzxt LED lights so it can light up the whole case.

Ha, I was actually thinking about doing the same thing but in red. I was hoping to find a video of it or something just to get a better idea of what they look like. I don't want Christmas lights.

I was also thinking about replacing the hard drive cage. My GPU is short so I don't need that extra space and I wouldn't mind throwing 2 more drives in there. Has anyone tried this yet?
