I'll tell ya what....powerful is a SEVERE understatement on that rig!!! I swear if I put wings on it, it would literally fly! Again I am glad and honored to have built it. It is official...... your rig has inspired me, and I will only take on water cooling rigs from now on.

With the wedding and reception out of the way I will have more time now, the only bugger I have to deal with is this defective back of mine. :(

Time has past and one of my GTX 275's has failed.... hummmmmmm what to do? Well I found the answer.......... Buy two EVGA SuperClocked 015-P3-1582-AR GeForce GTX 580's. Yup, that is what I did.

Pushed the buy button last night and got three day shipping.... So I should have these cards installed middle of this next week I hope.

Link to GTX 580 SuperClocked: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814130590

Can hardly wait to get these installed, so I can get back in game.

Stinks to be slow again when you are used to being blazing fast. I could not have thought of a better resolution than that. Sounds like your machine will be better than new. Probably because it will be!!!!! Talk about an uplifting experience...

I have finally broke down and ordered 2 OCZ 240 Gig SSD's that come with 2 free OCZ 64 Gig SSD's.. Should have in hand in a few day's. All drives are SATA ||| and after installation should reduce the remaining bottleneck in my box.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820227707

2 - OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

2 - OCZ Petrol PTL1-25SAT3-64G 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Yahoooooooo!

Yup! if it's not one thing it is another. My 580's are almost a year old but i think I will hold out for a bit longer before I pop for the 680's.

Go buy yourself 24 (or 48/64) GB's of RAM, then make yourself a RAMdisk, load BF3 onto that. Load times solved.

SSD's and most programs installed..... Took all day to get-R-done but I am on the home stretch now with only minor stuff left to do.

7.5 base score.... Dam processor.... That is the next bottle neck.
