My System Specs


Tri SLi 480's and a 980X deserve only WC.......add another 1 - 1.5K.......why not turn it into a "reality build"..swap 980X for 930 and Tri SLi 480's for SLi 480's....GT Doms could also be swapped out for regular Doms....

btw...Tri SLi 480's simply aren't worth it at this point...scaling from 2 to 3 Cards isn't all that great, other than for some gains "Benching"......

You'd also be better off with a Silver ST Strider 1.5 kW to run that Rig.

Firestrike Extreme: 23.772K
Timespy: 18.613K
MARK 11: 40.185K

if we're going nuts, just grab a EVGA SR-2 motherboard with dual xeon 5650's (or better) - you'd need a different case, or mod that one (if it would fit)
Two 480 sc's would be best too.. all watercooled.

but yeah, that would still be a kick-ass system for sure.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
