    It's only 2 weeks until I can order it! I've waited a few months now, 2 more weeks wont hurt me!.... I hope Though saying that I keep turning it on. There's something about hearing the pump spin up and hearing water pump around your system. It's nerve wrecking at first but gets addictive quickly!

    Well I think I was discussing it with you that I was planning on getting a single Titan as I wanted to avoid the dual GPU route but now things have changed (AGAIN! Notice a theme here?). I'm going to order a EVGA GTX780 Superclocked at the end of this month and buy another in December for my Birthday! It out performs the Titan in almost every game even up to 5760X1080 . I don't really need 6GB of video memory plus I can't say no to the same power for less money. Hopefully dual 780s will be on par with the 7990 if not better.

    Now i've watercooled my CPU and it turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would be i'm going to water cool the GPU's once I have both of them. Now i'm not sure if I want to incorporate the GPU's into my existing loop or if I should build another loop just for the GPUs and have 2 bay reservoirs. One with red fluid the other with another colour.

    First things first though I need to get my GPU's in and running before I can dream up another watercooled loop

    I had two Xbox 360's red ring and never invested into another one. So I took both of the stock HDDs out.

    I keep all of my emulator game saves and games backed up on them. Ex: Shadow of the Colosus, FF12, Fatal Frame, Zelda O of T/Master Quest. And many more...

    It also looks cool utilizing all of your case's features. (Armor Revo)

    Well... My PC's specs are cool, video card is the only problem. I have an AMD Processor 4.00 GHz with 8 cores, 8GB of RAM... But I have Windows 8 and a bad AMD video card HD7570 with 2gb of memory. For example, I can play Bioshock Infinite on max settings with 60 fps but only in 1280x720... when I put it on min settings, but in 1920x1080, it runs with 15 fps. So I rather play it on my good old PS3! PC is more for work.

    Nothing wrong with Windows 8! That's what will be getting installed on my rig!

    I'm annoyed! I'm somewhat ahead of schedule as I didn't think it would be finished until October so I was planning on playing Black Flag and Watch Dogs on it first. But now I'm ahead I don't have any games with eye-candy to play

    Perhaps I'll download Crysis 3 and Bioshock: Infinite

    Ugh, my 12 year pc, upgraded over the years, has decided to call it quits. Mobo is gone lol.

    It has been a great ride with a dual core for a LONG time lol.

    I'm thinking of just getting a new case, this one is a decade old... mobo, ram, cpu... I think everything else is stil intact decently. MAYBE a new gpu, as I put this 460 in there more than a year ago I think.

    Upgrade it!! My PC should be set for next generation once I have both of my 780s inside! I'm gonna have to mod my case though soon. Need more radiator space

    My current build has reached the end of its 'max settings' life. It can do it but at the expense of sounding like a Jet plane and heating my room up!

    This post may make me look a little insane, but this is my life time goal:
    To have a supercomputer; just to look BA when gaming & producing music! Having unlimited performance for no reason... at all.

    When I finish boot camp for the Air Force, I will be saving up money for a serous upgrade.
    It will be something like... this >>> http://www.avadirect.com/5u-rack-ser...asp?PRID=20932
    Just maxed out with another GTX-690 and maybe some other GPU accelerators and 8 E7-8870 (or whatever is newer by that time)

    It plays 1, 2 & 3. Also Far Cry 3, Batman AC, Witcher 2 all in max settings (Ultra)
    (Witcher being the smoothest)

    What it doesn't play (sorry, it plays, but @ 1fps) is Metro 2033. This is due to the dumb bass BETA drivers from GeForce.
    There's also a couple of other issues, but's not concerning to me.

    Here's a nice chart to compare too when referencing to an NVIDIA GPU's performance >>> http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desk...90/performance

    Also, click my spoiler if your a fan of Dart from LOD!

    Metro brings most system to their knees. I'm glad to see that the stock GTX780 isn't too far of the 690. Can't wait to get this 780 in SLI

    Yeah, sorry for not mentioning that. Metro without the BETA 320.49 driver, it runs just fine.

    i'll take a month or so then i'll replace the hdd and dvd burner (maybe). I'll def. go with a ssd for at least the OS. I have a free copy of win 8 right now, so I might use that until I decide on whether to buy another copy of win 7 lol.

    Windows 8 was great for me once I added the start button back with Classic Shell.
