nice.

smile.gif

edit:
how's the motherboard transition...?

The MVE turned out less then stellar. Not sure if it was a bad one but I sent it back and used the refund to buy the second 780. Keeping the Sniper3 for now since I still love the onboard audio.


I'm paying a bit more but I want a bit more grunt with tri 780s. I can't afford three Titans so it was a no brainer. Sadly, the first titan sold in a heart beat but the Asus is not getting any love. I noticed that the EVGE SC gpu(s) tend to sell best so I'm investing a little bit more in buying SC 780s. Wife not too happy but I'm selling some extras that should allow me to break even with this new setup biggrin.gif
sucks about the MVE, it seems some people love them or hate them, or they are buggy... tongue.gif

ASUS Titan hardly no love, hmm has the rumors about ASUS quality true, I hope not since I have ASUS as well. redface.gif
I like the eVGA SC (matching set) and please report scaling on the tri's for us.. smile.gif

now gotta buy wifey something to get back on her good side, not about breaking even.. wink.gif

Its not the brand tbh because the vanilla EVGA titans are still very aplenty. Seems like everyone wants the higher boosting SC. I took a look at the ebay sales and the SC were the ones selling for top dollar and quickly. Maybe its the factory overclock or "specialness" of it that makes them appealing. Its interesting because Asus is one of the easiest companies to work with warranty. Its done via serial number where as EVGA requires the eu to register. I have had a few offers but no one is committing and then there are the low ball offers that are just annoying. Well, hopefully someone can take the lovely Asus for the great price I'm offering it.


I won't get them until next week and the 3rd might not show up until a couples weeks (hoping for sooner). I already have two Titan blocks and I just ordered a third.

Keep your 3570k, you won't gain much going to a 3770k. If you want lower temps, go w/ the SB but keep in mind that it needs to clock 200mhz more to match an IB cpu (ie SB 4.7 ~ IB 4.5).

Nah, ASUS nilla Titans are identical to everyone else's... my ASUS card overclocks better than 95% of all the Titans I've seen on here with stock BIOS.

I was thinking of upgrading the 2500K in my Surround rig to 2700K or 3770K not the 3570K rig.
I'm aware of the performance difference of SB to IB, but either one I get the cheaper will do.

I choose not to look at the Tiger and Newegg emails, especially with days I have my wallet on my desk in front of me..

heh, more motivation to give up on skyrim surround

ultimately though I can't figure a way around maxing out vram other than going bigger. even turning off my big combined texture pack mod still leaves me with a maxed out 2gb vram

kinda wish I went bigger, but oh well. skyrim is def the exception so far - I'm surprised how (barely) adequate 2gb vram is on 6050x1080 (my end resolution with bezel correction)

I think it's inevitable that I end up buying a wheel again to get back into racing sims now - so tempting with surround....or maybe I'll just wait for the finished motor build in my actual Evo X and avoid spending more money on the PC lol

Don't know if this has been mentioned here before, but I just found a great little program called SplitView. It takes one major nightmare of the windows 8 + surround combo and rectifies it ALMOST perfectly. SplitView allows you to maximize to 1 monitor rather than hitting maximize and seeing your browser across 3 screens. It doesn't change the taskbar situation and the maximize button is almost duplicated, but it's a lot better than going through the 20 step process to switch between surround mode for gaming and non-surround for work.

I was just going to ask this.. I just started my surround setup. I have to say I prefer "Activate All Displays" because it's what I'm used to with two but it won't enable SLI or surround. Kind of irritating.
