My System Specs

After that I upgraded to the new Phenom II 940 when it was released, then to a Phenom II 1100T. Eventually I found a good deal here at HWC on a Crosshair V and ran the 1100T in that for a while. Then the upgrade bug bit again so I went for an 8350 and lived happily ever after. The end.

One of these days I'd like to try a 3770K and Maximus V with my 7970's just to see if there's any difference other than heat and power consumption.
I'm thinking my next upgrade with be to IB-E, and a Rampage V Extreme...I'm just waiting for those chips to come out...
