Congratulations. Now you can post pics of the rig to make us jealous BTW, your sig will be made available when you get enough posts, I think its 150.

Something that amazes me is that you made a whole computer with 38 posts.

Lol let me link the specs.

Edit: Ahh wait there we go it's on.

One question though, on CS:S it says like 16xAAQ or something like that.
In settings but when I put it on max, it doesn't seem to make a difference.
What's it for?

Oh and I might get another GTX and run Sli but for now this card is more then enough.
I'm in LOVE with the monitor it's so vibrant and clear <3.

AA is anti-aliasing. For example, if you have a horizontal line, you see jaggies. With AA on, it looks like a smooth line.

Anti-aliasing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
