I like my Ripjaw memory had no problem with it. Plan on getting more soon.

You sent this to my house right? I'll be sure to test it out for you and work out the kinks.

NO SSD's?
I bet you would like them!
Best bang for the buck in my opinion.


Why not Intel?

Just curious Blood, because I'm looking at a new build for Brink.

I had two 4890's in Crossfire.

I didn't think there was that big of a boost.

And I had heat issues constantly.
Finally pulled one and stuck with a single card.
So you might think of some cooling options.

Of course.... I only play ETQW... so I have a limited perspective.

Would like to know how it works out for you though!

From what I have read that is an ETQW thing. Games that use OpenGL are more prone to crossfire issues than those that use DirectX.

Get a Corsair H50 CPU cooler. Self-contained liquid cooler. Not only way cooler, but almost silent to boot.

They just came out with an H70. I just bought an H50 and installed it literaly yesterday. I still have to open my case and put a fan on it (perhaps I need to tinker with the case fan arrangement a bit to fix this) but with the H50 my CPU now runs at 40C instead of 47C while playing ET.

Maybe I should start work a bit more on my computer again, not that is sucks, it still rocks with the i7 proccesser, but maybe some more ram, and a blue-ray drive would not hurt.

The Best Buy site skipped the LGA 1366 on it's specs page, but Corsair says it's supported:

"Socket Support:
AMD AM2, AMD AM3,
Intel LGA 1155, Intel LGA 1156, Intel LGA 1366, Intel LGA 775 "
