funny u should mention that since thats the gpu im getting too! have the watercooling setup ready and everything for it . dont worry im gonna post pics, specs and everything once this superbeast is done. tons of modding going into it too

and nos, i need it because im a programming/graphics student and use 3dsmax8 etc. as well as tons of gaming. so it's going to get some use believe me! lots of multitasking needed
