Yeah, I gotta tweak my CPU overclock back up myself for my 7970 coming tomorrow... only a single one but oc'd I could probably use more CPU speed anyway :p.

Ya the sad fact is I will have more fun overclocking and benching then playing games on this tri-fire rig. Another project I just finished which will be posted this week is a Racing Simulator in my basement with a Playseat, Logitech g27, a panasonic 37in Viera Led, with a 2500k and 2 6970 cards. It's sweat its next to my arcade machine I got running with Hyperspin front end which it took months to get everything running right ( that's my
Pride and joy )

that's really pretty, you collect all those over several years or more recently?

Are the game systems just like display pieces? It's like a history timeline of video gaming over the last 30 years lol. Although I did get out of console gaming when I was about eleven and have been computer gaming only ever since.

All the game systems work, my 4 year old plays all the old school systems and of course his favorites are Mario on the Nes, And ghostbusters on the Sega Master System. It Is funny that on the arcade machine he will spin the trackbal and say Damn it Damn it, I ask him what he's doing and he says just acting like you Lol! We have some mean battles of Robotron and Joust on their that's for sure.
