Sadly, a superb graphics card won't be of much help for online gaming with the connection he has. :lol:

This is true.

Red Dead Redemption was easily my game of the year. Not a knock on batman but red dead was awesome!

If you havent given this a ride then go get it!

I did refrain from mentioning that he's probably trying to build the ultimate rig to try and force stuff through to the net faster ;)

because I got it for just about roughly $85 more expensive than the GTX-570 Superclocked. so I went for it :lol:

and because Julian said I should get it hahahaha

I think from the stuff I read everywhere it should be worth the $85 difference.. don't you agree? I don't think I'll ever use its full potential, but it sure is somewhat futureproof for at least a few years :lol:

You did good man. :)

Alex, I'll find away, maybe I could get a 2mbps or so connection for just a little more :D will try to upgrade if I find it necessary hehe

NICE STEVEN!!! You just upset Martin with the 580 :D

haha this time I blame Julian hehehehe...

he told me to go buy the GTX-580 SC... and don't buy Palit. go EVGA, you see I am very obedient :lol:

I am pretty broke right now and for the next few months, but it feels good to see something come out of my money haha... I mean I now have a good camera, a good computer, somewhat decent SUV and whatnot... I can't travel for the next few months but what the heck, I'm still young hehehehe

yeah now Martin needs to beat 15,000 in geekbench :lol::lol: ;)

that poor kid will be tortured for sure hehe

Hehe, yep. He will see beautiful graphics, but he'll be dead before he can react seeing an opponent. :lol:

Sounds good! Whatever it takes, you have to join us!

It's a fast card for sure.

I know, lol. It's probably overkill for Steven. :)

I'm looking at this one, looks sweet! Kind of makes me want to upgrade even though I really don't need to.

Oh I can understand

And Krepta the 580 is just VERY potent, im just mad because he got a 580 when i had to settle on the 570..ok not "settle" but...I drew the line at it lol

And monkey, you were supposed to remove the screen before installing the second 200mm fan...
