Tommy, it sounds like you're in the same spot I am. My case isn't full though. I'm just running an i7 maxed out with some mammoth HDD'* (one small for the OS of course) and two GTX 285s. Also 6gb RAM. Yeah I know it'* not the best and I could throw more into it. That would be dumb though. If I upgraded my video or my RAM I wouldn't gain anything noticable. 3DMark would see it, but I wouldn't. I care about me, not about benchmarks.

Yep.. pretty much the same boat. I could upgrade video cards but I've already invested a bunch into the 285ssc'*, I actually jumped up from 6 to 12GB since I have been messing around with VM'* and also got pretty close to using up my 6GB with APB, a new game I've been checking out. Can't even tab out of it with 4GB (I had 2GB out in another machine I was testing). Just got my 6th 1TB RE3, I'm going to give RAID-5 a go. I need to figure out a better cooling setup, my liquid cooling radiator can't dissipate enough heat to hold my 4.5GHZ overclock in the summer.

APB is awesome (they do need to get hackers under control though). What size rad you got Tommy? I have a triple in mine and that'* freaking overkill for my 4.0GHz overclock.

Yea, hackers ruin most good games, that and the people who join missions for the money and go off to farm cars or just run around ramming other cars. Ah well, it'* starting to get fun now that I've been on a while and got some upgrades.

I've got a thermaltake bigwater, turns out its not big enough. I've been thinking about putting a bigger pump on it and running it along with a second radiator and adding the graphics cards to my loop. I could go through one radiator, into the cpu, into another radiator, then into the graphics cards.

Bad Tommy! Dump the Thermaltake. Using Thermaltake is about as bad as driving a ricer. Build your own loop. Much better performance and quality.

What is APB? Link?

Also, I run my i7 on air. Not a fan of water cooling, but I'll be looking into when I move to Korea to cut noise down. Right now my i7 at 3.5 (forgot heatsink name) and my Coolermaster HAF 932 Full tower case keep everything pretty cool.

I've been looking at getting a radiator like this one, just the radiator. I could go really ridiculous with a 55gallon drum and a car radiator, but I just don't have the room right now.

APB: MMORPG Grand Theft Auto. It grows on you.
