Sorry didn't see your post Chris, I went for 460's in my i7-930 rig for the same reason's as you did but replacing all my other cards (7...ouch) with more 460's would get expensive, not to mention I'd like to keep the power draw down in case I eventually decide to add another rig...

Those are good cards I'm sure ST but for some strange reason I don't like Gigabyte stuff, might just be the colours they use I don't know. Feel the same way about EVGA, just an instinctive dislike.

The only reason I went MSI is because BFG is out of the game, so it will probably be either MSI or Asus for me for now...



@dangtx; I'm starting to reach the limits for available hydro in my appartment, thats another reason to replace my 9800GTX/GTX+'s and GTS250's with 450's, unfortunately the Fermi's really suck back the juice when OC'd to the limits...

On the other hand I might wait a bit as there are rumours of a 560 coming mmmm...
I have a couple of cyclones as well. The temps are excellent, at least 5C cooler OC'd vs my stock SC evga's.

No worries there mate, I know myself to have choosen cards and such based on strange things like colour and what have you. The only reason I haven't grabbed MSI for myself is some bad CS, but that may have just been me.

Good luck getting the new rigs up and running.

Wow, 2 bigadv in a row

I'll probably get less bonus points because I need to shut down the rig to install my new PSU and the other 460 ! The 460 was in Toronto last night, so I'm hoping to get it tomorrow!

I have a new monitor coming my way too :). Any good software for dual monitors or I should be fine without any?
