well i couldnt do anything w 3.37ghz last night.... i had to pump some insane voltage to get there so it would just shut down on me like before.. not enough juice from the psu....

i've been looking into the xtreme 850 it doesnt cost too much.. and i think someone on xs might buy my psu now

and ya, 3dmark06 is cpu intense.. and well at 2.7... i'm definitely bottlenecking my gtx's

and w/ the settings i use in crysis (i got them from a crysis forum... they look amazing) i'm ranging 35-40 fps average now (gtx's at 600/950) and playing through the first 2 missions of COD4 at 1920x1200 w/ 4xAA i never saw a frame below 80



and i wish i could upload this the full 1920x1200 res but its 6mb








mgcook.. the 850 watt is cheaper? lol Newegg.com - Rosewill RX850-D-B ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91 850W Power Supply 100 - 240 V TUV, FCC, UL, CE, ROHS - Retail

oh didnt see this... well doesnt do nothing.. no freezing.. just power down and the light on the motherboard blinks.. but once i take the 2nd gtx out.. or even sound card, it works normal again.. and i have to unplug the psu then plug it back it to get em all working together again
