Quadro's beat the hell out of a 7800GTX anyway...but to the point I know what the reserator looks like, I've done a lot of research lol, but my question is, is it worth the money you pay for it? My room gets freezing this time of year but roasting (even with a fan on 24/7) during the summer so I'm not sure whether it'd work out beneficially.

Though if I was to change my case, what do you think I should get? I was thinking of the P180 Silver or the Chenbro Gaming Bomb 2, however if possible I'd like a 100% completely tools free case that's quiet and can accomodate 4 hard drives, 3 optical drives, the front panel for my X-Fi, a Floppy (though this may not be needed soon), 6 expansion slots and lotsa fans. :D

Varsh, it worth the money! I have mine for 4 months and it works great. just be careful what mobo you have and case, in some of them it doesnt work! Plus the nvidia quadro is made for animation ( game making, and worksations) when someone makes a game, they test it on a nvidia quadro first, always!! So therefor it is better, plus I have alot o video cards and I tested them all, but the nvidia quadro is the best for gaming!

Will it work with a BFG 7800 GT and an Asus A8N-Sli Premium? Also any ideas for the case to use for it? ;)

I must admit though, it is a little big...or rather it's huge!

Any price range, don't care, though obviously nothing above £150 ($280).
I have been thinking about the Chenbro Gaming Bomb II (I currently have the Chenbro Gaming Bomb I) and the Antec P180 but I'm still not sure.

What I'm wanting is something completly tools free without needing to use a screwdriver, cool, looks asthetically pleasing, is quiet, has 4 x 5¼" bays and 1 x 3½" bay (or two, then again I'll rarely use 3½" if at all anyway).

Wow....just wow. Tell me how that works and start posting on a PC forum and see the comments that roll in from that remark.

I dont know what your problem is hoverbike, like you should give a shit or not that you like my video card or not. Your life doesn't depend on my video card or ever will.If I were you,I would keep my comments to myself. If you dont like my video card then shuv it. I said that is my computer and I dont care what is your opinion is.




And varsh,I have the p180 on my other pc. It would work great with that reserator.

If your looking for a bigger case I would go for the:


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119042


or this which is a little pricey : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811112074


your pc needs space, right? That why I gave you huge cases. Those cases are good but here is the best Full tower case:

I'm not particularly keen on the Thermaltake though I could live with that, but there would be a problem with my X-Fi as it takes a fron drive bay slot and I have a lot of things plugged into it..., the Coolermaster Stacker has had me intrigued for a while, been thinking of something like that for a few months but then it wouldn't fit underneath my desk amd I transport my PC everywhere so...that would be a little too big to carry around all the time.

The V2000 looks odd on the inside, I mean really odd and it looks as though my PSU won't reach the motherboard, but then again it looks as though the motherboard is upside down on this case...hmm.

Nice pics though any around the size of the P180?

I've taken a look at the Thermaltake VA8000BWA Armour Super Tower but that looks huge too...

Gah I don't know what to get. >_<

LMAO Quadros aren't better for gaming than the 7800, trust me, I could have gotten either in my mac, ended up with a 6600 (I ordered right when they announced the new PowerMac G5's so I could either get a 6600, a quadro, or wait a month and get a 7800). Even the 6600 is better than the Quadro for gaming. The Quadro is made specifically for have several monitors and for rendering 3d images from programs like CAD and stuff.

please, Just leave me alone. I love my video card! and I can switch between each whenever I please! I have the 2x Nvidia 7800 gtx ko. Its good for gaming but I dont game all the time! I use my pc for my home theatre system aswell. 7800 gtx after sometime the frame rates get chunky, so I would have more moderate image then none at all.


And varsh, The p180 front bay panel isn't very strong, I had to get mine replaced. So thats not the best. The best Case is: my case but its quite expensive! I have modded my case ( chopped the top and put in more bays) It took me time to mod it. I had to get the contour right and everything, but anyhow try this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811133171


I would take out the liquid cooling and use the zalman reserator. That case has even a hydraulic case side opener! That case is good, and strong. If your buying it in the store I would go for the p180, just make sure to test the front bay panel!



very light!

Yes your right, I don't care but I'm giving my thoughts on your Video card. I asked before if you were a PC gamer or not. It's fine if you have other video cards like the 7800GTX's then it's all good.

great, I never thought what would be a equivalent to the 7800 gtx ko? Is it ATI'S Crossfire? I bought the new video card by ATI ( Crossfire editon) and I still think that nvidia is better! I tried Bf2, and Call of Duty 2 and they seemed o.k, but nvidia was a little faster. Whats your opinion Hover bike?

I like Nvidia better because it has a easy tree line of video cards. ATI is the same in power with their video cards but I heard different things about both. I would buy a Nvidia card. ATI would not kill me. Go look at the marks on some hardware sites to see the card's performs.

I tried that but it still seams that even if ATI is more powerful, Nvidia is more leveled in performance and integrated more (Sl-I) and better than ATI . What video card do you run?

I tried to post my spec list but the forums keeps saying something is wrong with my posts. I don't understand.
Are you trying to post links to the specs? Might need to reach 10 posts before adding links on the forum.

negative. It was just a list of my PC parts. I couldn't post in another thread about what monitor I use either. If I type more than one paragraph it seems to give me the error

I have a 100% Custom Self Built Machine

Athlon 64 3500+ (2.2ghz stock) @ 3900+ (2.53ghz) stock heatsink/voltage. s939

nForce 4 motherboard

1GB Dual-Channel DDR 466 RAM Clocked all the way at 466.

GeForce 6600 GT (500/1000 stock) @ 585/1210 with ramsinks and massive gpu heatsink.

200 GB SATA HDD

16x Dual-Layer DVD+/-RW Burner.


My DREAM:

Athlon 64 X2 4800+

Dual 7800GTX in SLI

4GB DDR 533 RAM (for overclocking)

2x 76GB WD Raptors in RAID 0

2x 500GB Data Drives

BlueRay Dvd burner

All water cooled

Thats about $4000 if i built it myself, $6000 if i had it made by a pc company. And dell doesnt make anything that good :p

I had his dream CPU and the Raptors in RAID 0 except mine were 150GB and 2GB RAM.

Looking back at these computers makes me laugh how much tech has advanced.

AMD Ryzen 1700 @ 3.8 (great for streaming stuff)
Noctua cooler (forget which but it isn't the NH-D15)
16GB Ram
GTX 1060 (6GB)
250GB SSD
1TB storage drive (need more space)
USB Blu Ray drive

Surprising how much it handles BF1 at 1080p ultra averages around 90FPS even when streaming to youtube.

Those 3GB 1060 are superb bang for buck, they are the new 8800GT, remember those? I had one.

Ryzen is great but Intel I7 are still king for gaming.
Intel still has a lead on the IPC (intructions per cycle) so can do more things faster at the same frequency.
My friend has an i5 and he was struggling the other day with high CPU usage (upto 100%) and low frame rates. Turns out it was a driver issue, but still after fixing the issue his CPU usage is 70-80% utilised and mine is about 30-40% max. Double the cores and quadruple the threads.

Right now my PC specs are:

i5 8600k
Maximus X Hero
250 gb 850 evo
16gb g skill 3000mhz
corsair 780t
Msi Titanium 1070 Ti

With these specs everything for me is running smooth as butter. I was also thinking of getting purevpn for multiplayer gaming and I hope it works well.
