Down the line I could easily get it again for around that price or even less when the next gen comes out, having spent less than 500. And 2 660 Tis would certainly overpower a single 680, and probably match or come close to the next gen top card.

But yeah, I'm talking all nvidia here as I don't have any experience with AMD. As far as I know, there aren't really much problems with their cards in SLI, if at all, but that could just be a false impression.

If we're considering performance vs cost, then I would agree. New top-of-the-line cards are overly expensive.

Have to disagree with that statement. Two years ago I installed my HD6970/6950(6970 flashed) in my PC. Sure, it works great and everything, but a year later a guy in this thread installed the newest high end nVidia card in his system, and on the Heaven benchmark his single card outperformed my two cards with the same settings.

Consider also that in many cases CFX won't even work, or will actually degrade performance. The constant hunt for drivers to make the cards perform better, and the occasions when the manufacturer (ATI in this case) releases drivers that are worse than the previous ones, or break a game you play a lot, or artificially adjust the drivers just to perform better in benchmarks.

I think if you get the newest high end card you're getting a great card. Maybe in a couple of years you may want to install a second one, but I think you would get the equivalent performance by just replacing it with the newest high end card again.

Mergatroid I would disagree strongly here, unless you have money to throw around and waste on your computer. The worst habbit to have is always wanting the best and fastest, and this is even more so true in the computing world as things change so quickly. You should only be replacing something when it no longer performs to your needs, just because a card is one model or three years old does not mean it is not as good as the latiest and greatiest.. if your current card copes with all your needs then the only thing you have gained by getting the newiest card is less money in your pocket.

Also you have to consider people that have invested in a full water cooling system, for me I have been waiting for a nice looking acrylic waterblock for my GTX690 and finally after 10mths of waiting I now have it, I would not drop my kit (pardon the pun) and buy the latiest kit if I have to wait around for a waterblock to be release. The Titian is the first GPU which I have seen that had a waterblock avalible on release date.

A fool and his money are soon parted, and people should not act the fool and try and keep up with the Jone's. I expect to get the next 3 yrs out of my current GPU, and maybe add a second when the price drops big time on them.. my i7 on the other hand had better last me 5yrs which it should.

Of course, this could all change if someone was to buy my old stuff for good money and an upgrade does not cost that much more.. but only if there was a benifit. For example, right now everything is focused on 1080p (which sucks), but if I can get a couple more years out of my kit and 4K really kicks in and GPU's start to handle this resoloution and monitors start having 4K res on a 27" 120+ Hz monitor..

If I had my choices of upgrading my graphics card with no seeable benifit to myself, or say taking two weeks off and go snowboarding.. the choice would not be hard... Snowboarding, and I will wait for the next big release and do the whole tech review thing again. 2cents.gif

I thought this would be the best place to ask, considering this is where all the 600T owners are. I would like to know if anyone has an ASUS Maximus V Extreme with the Corsair H100i installed?

Lol. Well, what can I say? Everything fit in our cases (same with my roommate's 650D) even if the dimensions were not "perfect". I did purchase an optional windowed side panel, and in that particular panel one of the latches didn't work very well, but I just replaced it with a latch off of my original panel and now it works perfectly. That's the only complaint I had with mine. Nothing was misaligned enough to cause any issues, everything fit. Same with my buddies, no complaints at all. I'm sorry if some people got bad cases, but that's not the case (so to speak) with all of them. Perhaps something during manufacturing has been becoming misaligned more and more over the years this case has been on the market?

For sure, if I bought this case and I had a problem closing the side panel because of that particular issue, I would return it. If the next one had the same problem, I would take it back again and purchase a different case. I would never purchase a case for $169 (which is what it cost when I bought it) and keep it if it had a fault like that.

Here's a picture of mine:



As you can see, it's only about a millimeter or less off. It has no effect on how the panel fits. It certainly does not hit the panel like in the pictures provided by CTV. I have two panels for that side and they both fit the same.

My original (one of the very first) 600T looks exactly like in your picture, also with a little lip, though my panel opened and closed properly.

Somewhere (not sure where I read it, think it was from MNPCTECH themselves), was said that the reason why some newer owners of their full acrylic panels were having difficulty to open and close their acrylic panels (catching at the top like mine), it NOT due to MNPCTECH and that their panels are manufactured very accurately. It was said that Corsair changed a mold at some point in production time which made the existing minor but manageable imperfection (as illustrated in the picture) a bigger imperfection, resulting in a different (problematic) fit of panels

I have SLI and it's the first time I have ever owned an SLI setup. I have Zero problems with performance. All but 1 of my games hugely benefits from SLI, with most of the time getting around 90% FPS increase over a single card. Other games will get about a 40 - 60% performance increase such as F1 2012. I couldn't do without mine.

I was worried about spending another £320 on a second card after hearing problems with micro stuttering and poor scaling but I can say I haven't experienced any, just high FPS with everything maxed out, butter smooth with my 120hz monitor. Best investment in a long time.

My cards are a touch hotter than id like (still only reaches about 72c on a hot day, normally around 68c) and overclock is rubbish because my second card is useless at overclocking (only achieves 1189mhz before it crashes) but in SLI the cards are so powerful none of this matters too much

I also have sli because I have a triple screen setup and one card wasn't cutting it. It's not like I have the money to throw around. Instead I figure with my current setup I'll be good for the next 3 to 5 years.

Yeah good for a few years atleast but I will get the upgrade bug again way before that and end up upgrading to two newer cards probably next year haha will see what next year brings!

The only thing I wonder is what temps would be like with a reference cooler rather than two that dump air into the case but its no biggie as it doesn't go over 73c max on a warm day. One day I might watercool if I come into some money, who knows!

I just got my side panel window back from a local machine shop and unfortunately they cracked it in 2 places. However both 120mm holes loik good. I'm going to use it like that. My PC is not a show rig and I'm not attending lan parties. If it bothers me I'll put a sticker over them. I don't have pictures yet but I will.

Both my cardsare reference blower style cooled and I'm glad I decided to go that route. Air flow can be better defined especially in sli, not having one card inhaling hot air from the other.
