$20 in a $1200 build seems kinda nominal. movies take up a lot of space.

plus, when/if you go 1440p+ you are prepared hardware-wise.

he said in the description he plans on adding a second loop for cpu, mobo, and ram.

i wasnt by any means agreeing with that mentality, but you hit the nail on the head with that one. i know at one point the staff was discussing the possibility of removing downvoting (or at least hiding score) to prevent this to some degree. i hope they are still working on that.

he said he purchased it from ebay, likely from a scrypt miner who is cashing out now that the gains are not worth the electricity spent. that said, i'd be hesitant to make a similar purchase due to the operating conditions that the cards are run at for mining purposes.

it seems like he routed them through the mounting holes on the corners. they definitely wont be able to separate. as long as he doesnt throw it down the stairs or something. lol

it was a joke. why do people obsess over imaginary internet points? there isnt a "bump" like a traditional forum so an update would likely not be seen by many.

if you flip that power supply over you may get enough slack to route the 8 pin around the back of the case (in addition to the rest of the cables)

nice build; my only problem is that only like 15% of your build cost went towards your GPU. i'd prioritize a stronger GPU over more RAM. 8GB is plenty for now. +1

it surely does. make sure you get a stand that can support a large screen though. the first one i got had to be returned because the monitor was too heavy for it to support the weight.

you think someone would do that, just go on the internet and tell lies?

but seriously, what reason do i have to lie? for what it's worth, these are the 448 core 560 ti's, which perform closer to 570s. it's not like i said i get 100+ FPS on max settings crysis 3. 60 on high+ on last year's games is not ground breaking.

i played the bf beta a bit and got ~30 at high settings, but it's not my type of game so i never bought the full game. metro and crysis are two on my list i'd like to try and see just how far i can push these cards. i'm likely not gonna max out much of anything, but i'm content with medium-high settings until i have a budget for a new system.

its also quite a bit older than a 770. it gets respectable framerates at 1440. sure it isnt the best but for what i paid and its age, it is perfectly reasonable. also, there is no need to be rude.

pretty good thus far. gets a solid 60 on arkham city and bioshock infinite only nearly max settings and over 150 on league of legends even with all the fps drops people are having lately on it. I had it overclocked to 110Hz, but i was having issues with resuming from sleep after overclocking so i reverted back for now. i hit the jackpot with that monitor for sure though; no dead pixels or backlight bleed and amazing overclock capabilities.

power supply is way overkill for this build. getting a more reasonable one could have given you some flexibility to get an 8320, because a 6300 might bottleneck the gpus. you got a great deal on that ram though, wow.

i like the build, although the 660's are questionable unless this was built before the 700 series was released.

glad to see this build again with a proper description this time! A third Titan seems like an obscene amount of overkill, but that's your choice. i'd probably go for a multi-monitor setup for that amount of gpu power though. 1440 gaming probably barely makes this monster sweat.

i was referring to the mobo that op used.

e: according to the wikipedia page, a 4x second lane is a physical limitation of the chipset actually http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_900_chipset_series#970

e2: nevermind, reading comprehension is hard.

Comment reply on Randude14's Completed Build: Lightshow Gamer

either way though, the 2nd card would only be in a 4x lane (as opposed to x8/x16) so performance won't be ideal.

e: misread spec on the chipset. can either perform in x16 single or x8/x8 dual

this motherboard does not support SLi. whether that is a limitation of the chipset or not, i am not sure. plus, the chipset only allows for 1 x16 pci-e lane and 1 x4, so the second gpu will be significantly limited

some people are too much in a rush to put a description. the hdd is probably in the 5.25" bay. if you look closely you can see the power supply cable sticking out of the bay.

that power supply is extreme overkill. what is this going to be used for? also, for as huge as that case is, the cable management seems lacking.
