Just wait till I get a pic of Prowler all "cased up" ;) all the blue neon lights are truely blinding lol. Wouldn't surprise me if under load Prowler takes a whole electricity plant to himself :D As astonishing as it may sound, there are systems out there that even make mine look rather ordinary :tongue: Its just fortunate a new CPU and I can be snapping at their heels, roll on January sales! :headbang:

Oh and before I forget again, 3DMark06 score in CF is 15.5k, a new CPU will increase that score quite considerably as a E8x00 series has enough cache, and once OCd throughput, to fully unshackle my HD3870s. Can't wait!

Us hardware freaks don't spend as much money as you think ;) because we are "in the know", we can build insanely powerful, albiet not quite bleeding edge, for peanuts :rr:

If I sent you my hardware profile and specs, could you recommend the best cheap components I would need for DX10 and how to overclock em without going to crazy on the temperature?

I sent you a PM yesterday, please check your box. As I said on it, though your PC really does look impressive and it's a pleasure to look at those pictures, however, they are far too big for the page and consequently they shift the page, also increase the dowload time of the page. Not everybody has a high speed broadband, so they would skip the page and will not be able to see the pictures.

Acceptable in-page picture sizes on this board is requested not to larger than 600x480 (apprx). Therefore, it'd be great if you could resize the pictures on your server, or put thumbnails of them here and link them, or if none of these available, then please use straightforward links to the pictures.

If you cannot do it, then I will have to turn them into simple links. Much appreciated. Thanks. :)
--------------------------------
EDIT:

OK... I have edited and turned the pictures to simple links. For future reference: Pictures should not be bigger than 600x480 please.

Sure just shoot me a PM and I'll draw something up based on your affinity (intel\AMD, nvidia\ATi)

Yep, its an open case design, with a 250mm fan on top. Have to say, i'll stick with my current case!!

Imagine the noise, not really from the case, but the CPU, VGA fans and hard drive access...

Still, interesting design.

Yup, I'd pass it, too. I'm already complaining about the noise from my current case, I wouldn't like to attact a helicopter rotor on it, too. :D
