    Best motherboard/Case for 2 6990s?

    Got my eye on the Corsair 650D currently as I am trying to house 2 6990s with a 10 cm crossfire bridge. Turns out they didn't want to do any work in my mini-p180 case and mAtx motherboard. :( My understanding is that the 10 cm crossfire bridge should allow me to have three unused slots...

    x2 5000+ to quad Phenom 9600 worth 30 bucks?

    I know this is a ghetto upgrade, but is it worth 30 bucks? Someone has the 9600 on CL locally and I am hoping that this will give me a little more juice on my 2408. Long term I would like to ditch the AM2 setup for an i5/i7, but that's a long way off. Need my third 2408 monitor first :)...

    Possible World In Conflict Group/Clan

    Hey guys, I just thought I would check and see if anyone has made a clan for the demo and plans on making one for the release. I have been playing for a while and found most of them to be alittle immature. Maybe we could get a [H] group going and fire off some triple nukes of our own :D My...
