what i want to know is why originally did they do beige, is such an ugly color, and over time it looks worse. we got some old case down in the basement some of the plastic on it is turning yellow.

oh and for more 690 pics:

Thanks for the pics, your setup looks awesome. I'm also getting the 9800 GTX !

I actually like the HAF, but I'm really trying to stay under $100.

yea i like it, its kinda overkill for what i do though, i play alot of older games and really dont need the 2nd one, heck id prolly do fine w/ a 8600 lol but for right now the 9800gtx's are cheap and its a good dual card solution if u have a nv mobo and want performance of the 400$ cards, u can find them used for cheap also im sellin mine for 115 each

I never really got what SLI does, or even is. I just don't get why you need 2 graphics card - when you can just have one and plug the monitor into that one.
