My System Specs


For somebody who's "learning", you've done a great job of putting together a system that'll kick a fair bit of butt. :)

Only small thing I'd suggest is purely a personal preference, but I'd go with MX2 Thermal Compound if you can find it. I've found it to be the most consistant TIM in terms of easy application. I'd like to be able to suggest MX3, but I personally haven't had a chance to use it, and I've heard that they've changed the consistancy so it might not live up to the ease-of-application that MX2 excelled at.

I'd also second (or third) having a look around at what kind of luck folks have had with Sparkle warranties..... I can't fault their kit as I've been beating the cwap out of a sparkle GTX275 for over a year now without any problems, but I'd be leery of their North American warranty service until I had some personal testimonials.
