More about ordering tonight final critque please
  1. nm they are out of this card at Micro Center
  2. Guess with no one chipping must be ok. Had to order a Sapphire 5870 thru Ebay, along with the SSD bay converter, and the Intel SSD. Had no choice but to go thru Ebay on those but all sellers have a 98% rating or better. So hopefully I won't get screwed.

  3. In my opinion, you are overspending on the mobo, ram. I would just go for the V2 and this ram

  4. Nice monitor;
    Why did you order the Arctic Silver Ceramique?
  5. Ah forgot to change that WR2. I got the combo deal, Artic Silver 5 with the fan controller.

    JB..I got this HSF, the Prolimatech Megahalem with 2 Scyth 1900 rpm fans for push/pull cooling.
  6. Is it too late to change out the Arctic Silver Ceramique
    for Arctic Cooling MX-2 or OCZ Freeze?
  7. Didn't get the ceramique, got the AS 5 instead with the combo, and yeah I ordered it. My 4th build with that AS 5 and had no probs..
