raptor's a waste of money
u can get similar performance with raid 0 for less money and you get more storage

and why u gonna get a couple 295's when u can get a couple 5970's that run cooler and faster with dx11 instead

well the 295's are about $500+ but are beginning to be sold out everywhere..the main reason too that i don't want the ati card because i don't want an amd processor

lol yeah still not as bad as zalmans heatpipe case. i think its msrp was 1400?

did anyone used to mod their cases? I used to. simple shit like making windows and lights and extra fan ports, painting. but nothing hardcore like making theme cases or just make one from scratch
