Which would lead me to guess all GTX465s and GEs imported here are un-unlockable.

I guess I'm SOL... I really wanted to get a GE GTX465 and join this club

Really would have just gone for a 465 SLI with at least one GE but I want to play Metro 2033 with 40+FPS@1900 resolution... T_T

Thanks a lot anyways for all the advices you've given 2010rig!
That sucks - so which way are you going now?

Selling your card and picking up a 560?

When my rig was born, it started with an E2180 on an EVGA 680i SLI, 2 x 1GB of this 800 MHz mushkin memory, an 8600 GTS, those 40 GB Barracudas and optical drives, and my current sound card (the XtremeGamer).

It has undergone a few changes since then.

I'd say that even if you don't get an "unlockable" Golden Edition GTX 465, then it's still better than both due to the Twin Frozr II (not to mention the bling factor).

Oh ya my current rig is always upgrading, infact since I built it a year and a half ago the only things that remain are the mobo, sound card, optical drive and case everything else has been upgraded one by one. Now with my new SSD it should be set for awhile though I am interested in a am3+ mobo if they have a decent PCI layout. My current board is way overcrowded with sli, sound card and usb controller. VGA cards are running hotter that they should due to the cramped space.

My previous rig was an alienware that I customized about six years ago before they were owned by dell and had an AMD 3400+, nVidia 5950, two 120g baracudas raided with a Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS It was prime six years ago.

VooDoo's were legit back in tha day they were a solid company in the 90's twas sad to see them go.

What's even more sad is that I didn't keep either of those two Voodoo3 3000 cards. :/ I wish I had known that I would have liked to keep them for the sake of nostalgia.

But yeah, I remember back when I had that old system: I thought that I'd never even have a slightly modern one. lol But now here I am.

Oh yeah, and I had the Audigy 2 ZS too. Like you said, back then such things were prime. I felt so awesome when I got that card even though the rest of my system was dinky. hehe

Totally I actually still have my Audigy card relatively speaking, I threw it in the system I built for my mom and its still going strong.

Ya I wish I still had some of my older PC parts from back in tha day (mid 90's). I've been wanting to build a DOS box to run some of my old games on but like I said don't have the parts anymore and am reluctant to buy such things.

I'm actually in a similar boat: I'd love to build a Win95/98 machine so that I can play some of my favorite older games like Descent II or Freespace 2, but I am reluctant to buy the parts too.

Plus, I don't have the physical space for a second computer.

Well being from different vendors you can run into issues, just make sure that they are running at the same specs and definitely see if they will both unlock. You will have a nice performance boost running 2x 470's in sli vs 465's. The ASUS tool is a good preliminary way to check before flashing though the process of flashing is pretty simp as well: there is extensive coverage in this forum on what to do, just check the main page or do a search. If they unlock or not just remember to make sure that they run at the same speeds i.e., core, mem and shader.

[EDIT] If they do unlock, just flash them both with the same BIOS and the specs will be identical. If they don't use a tool such as MSI's afterburner to manually set them at the same speeds.

What tool is that? And where can I find it?
