So I think I decided on the 800d, it was between that or the tj07, simply because I can't justify blowing $600 on a TJ11 and I don't really like those double thick custom type cases from caselabs, mountain mods and the like. Not saying they're bad but they just arn't for me. Not to mention they are also quite expensive.

Decided to go for the 800d because I wouldn't have to paint the inside black so it would save me some more time and money.

Here is a ghetto MS Paint schematic of what the loop might look like...

Is it weird that I completely understand your drawing even without it being labelled? If this is mostly for epeen, what's stopping you from grabbing the 3960x?

hoping that you put some radeon cards in there (possibly 7xxx series) to keep that red &black color scheme

I'm quite sure than before the end of the week, your GPU decision will have been made. ;)

Us enthusiasts.

Onto your second question.

Well, I was thinking about it, but there is basically no difference between the two for an extra 400 dollars so I decided against it. I think $600 for a chip is enough.

And yah. Can't wait to see that 7000 series review.

lol, dont tease with such things. Some of us are already going a little nuts waiting for this gpu lol


For you case, i'd personally get a TJ07, and just wait till Charles has his Murderbox parts avail for it.
:D then you'd have an epeen worthy case :)
