Just a tip, I dont know details but ASUS has a level up program, and I think does most of the time. There cards are aways a bit more expensive but I think if your like me, it pays off in long run
1) If he's doing it just for benchmarking then sure. I don't think he'll see an improvement in the game - at least from the reviews I've read. I just did a quick google and found other people repeating what I'm saying. It makes sense...3x 480 is a lot of computing power. But if he wants to overkill, then whatever Was just trying to save him some $$$ in case the thought it would improve his game a lot.

2) My 470s are from MSI. Another fail on my part! Maybe when the next gen of cards come out I'll switch then.

To be honest, i don't know. Maybe start a thread. Don't have the hardware installed to test...i think you should try, if it doesn't work out, you can sell me the card.....lol.

Well, (and im not the least bit embarrased) money is really no object for me. Along with this hobby, I have 2 others, Photography, (tho you wouldnt know it from my build pics) and Harley Davidsons. I have bought a Lens that cost 2000 dolllars. Did I need it? No. I have seen a guys web site that uses nothing but a Canon compact on purpose and he has some of the best pics I have ever seen. Point being some peoples excess is another person leisure.

I have two Harleys. A decked out Ultra Classic, and a Rat Bike hardtail that I built myself. For the price of the glide I could build 6 of those rat bikes. ( You wanna talk cool? The rat bike has a dental mirror duct taped to the bars as my rear view mirror. Its a scary bike. I painted the tank and what fenders i have with Rhino coat bed liner) If I want to run out for a few beers, I take the ratbike. Smokes at idle, loud as hell. I love em both but the rat bike steals my heart cause I built it myself. Same as this computer I just built. Hmm, I do have another case. Rat puter? time to start another build, used parts only.

No im still looking. I want true positional, but see good and bad reviews about most dolby sets. Also, i hear about problems of you are using SPDIF out for my Yamaha reciever, that a lot of sound cards/onboard contollers have problems switching to headphone/microphone then. I had to wait on getting the Auzentech board, but I blieve it has something called "headphone detection" that im hoping works. I may try the logitech G35s. Thoughts?

She looks awesome!! Your temps are good, my gpu's max at 65+ after 30 min Furmark @ 880/2150 1.125V.
Why don't you mount the cathodes on the inside the side panel?That way they will be invisible from the outside.If you want to, i can post a pic of how i mounted mine.
