    it's pretty decent, if you want to then in november there is the 69xx cards coming out so you can wait until then and put the 69xx card in insted of the 6870, or just put in another 6870 as it scales realy good on CF, for the rest of the money you can buy:

    and speaker, mouse and keyboard that you like.
  2. Hydro H70 is not worth it. There are much better air coolers that will offer better cooling and that are quieter. Here is a lil study that is on tomshardware:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-h70-liquid-cooling-radiator,2757-6.html

    the page after that is a chart on the noise levels. Its quite the shocker...
  3. Ohh true, thanks USAirways8 for that info, but although that the noise levels are very high, it's mostly the best rated cooler as a radiator.
