Description
This is in the Den. Recently upgraded from [email protected] to stock 2500K to gain some better gaming capability and power savings. Used for HTPC general use and games. I have a separate Blu Ray player to handle HD movies. Moved on from X-Fi sound to the NVidia Hi-def out through the HDMI. Happy with it so far, games sound better than the X-Fi did. HDMI out to Denon receiver, 5.1 Polks and 55" LED Samsung.

Future: Somehow mod to fit a Khuler 620 and OC a bit. I may have to just run the RAD to the outside through the back.
