Default Finally a Computer Related Purchase Again!!

alright... i'm just about done with all my partying so all my money is going back to my computer!!! yay...

anyway, i've went ahead and made my first step by purchasing the thermaltake armor "AMD edition"... i thought it looked really nice, so i decided hey... why not. Anyway, along with that i bought an fx-70... next paycheck i'll be getting the asus quad fx mobo... i'll be running on a single fx-70 for a good bit... (did my reading, found out it still runs on 1 cpu... so good news for me and my pocket). And as for gpu's.. i'll also be on 6800's (just plain 6800) for a while... probably a month??? then the hopefully 8900gtx or 8950gx2 will be out... (thats if the r600 comes out!!!) so i pray all these cards come out... so i will have an 8950!!!!.....

anyway... this'll just be a lil log type thing i guess... i can't find my old one... lol

The next card that should come out is the 8800 Ultra according to rumor (1GB DDR4)

Are you picking up one FX70 and later upgrading to two K10 cores?

nice NOS, nice!

Leave it to Nosboost to always get the coolest parts. Man i remember the good old days of running my two 6800GT's in SLI, they were beasts of their day.
And NOS, you know you have to get that 8950.

ya... i do feel obligated to get the 8950... cuz i want everything to go with 4's in this computer... 4 cpu cores... 4 gpu cores... 4 gigs of ram... ya, your getting the picture... well actually.. if that mobo ever uses those 4 pci-e slots for quad sli.. then i will do that.. cuz jeebus.. 4 8 series cards would manhandle anything... with ease... even dell 30 inch ultra sharp resolutions.... well it would manhandle anything until 1440p... and 2560p or whatever it was... monstrous resolutions.. look it up
