    WTB: CPU/MB/RAM/GFX Card

    I have about $800 currently to spend on core system components listed in title. I'm looking to Max out 1080p settings with good fps. I was going to buy new but thought I could maybe get more for my money here. I'm usually partial to Intel but will consider AMD as well. I'm looking for 8th i7 or...

    A case mod....sort of.

    My buddy begged me to build him a Minnesota Wild themed arcade and it turned out pretty decent. The bottom comes off allowing full access to joysticks and easy removal of the tv if needed. Its sitting on a lazy susan type base I use just for taking pics.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    I settled on 4.3ghz, which is a pretty nice OC. I could boot and poke around at 4.5 but decided it wasn't worth the effort. For some reason if I set my ram at more than 1.6 in bios windows won't recognize it. Doesn't seem to be an issue for overclocking though. My ram default says 1.65.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Some new benchmarks after I switched to a GTX 980. This is a really fun system and it makes my friend with a brand new i3 rig really sad. I was running OCCT in the background which is why temps are up. With 3 radiators this is as hot as it gets and my gfx card hasnt hit 40c yet. [/URL I...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    I lucked out and got an Asus p6x68d-e from ebay for right at $100. I switched to the Xeon on my EVGA board because I already had it. Once the word got out all this hardware went through the roof. If it wasnt such a hassle I would just sell off everything and building a new system because I...

    FS: MSI 7970 and EK water block $110

    yeah, I know. I thought maybe I would get a better deal in trade. It might find its way into my son's system.
