    TG, if you don't mind me asking what happened, or, what was wrong with the 2 x 580's you had?

    I quite like the tech news on Tweaktown but the reviews are fecking awful. No heatsink removal pics and they never update their game list. They never test with BF3 and when you ask them why? - the "BF3 test is coming later".

    He used the EVGA Step Up Program to change his GTX580 Classifieds for GTX680's 2gb versions and then sold those on Market Place so he could get the 4gb versions.

    The marketplace is way better than ebay. I wonder if I can sell non computer items like my £700 racing bicycle or spare underpants?

    People have sold various items on the market place. I'm thinking of selling a kidney on there as I could do with the money!! Then I can rival TG with the E-peening!!

    But you don't have Nvidia 3d vision so I don't get why you need the second eye?

    Now that sums up perfectly why I hate air-cooling.

    Nice that it comes with oil-paints so you can decorate the heatsinks though.

    It does look possible. I will need to see some img of the top of the PCB to compare. :)

    This! :)

    They can keep that! Lol, still a waterblock would still yield better temps, and won't be a nightmare to fit, especially if you want to go SLI. :D

    I will do. Gotta keep the drooling going... :D

    Yep! Lol. :D
