Yea we do pretty cool huh. Why did you go with a 3970X btw? That's a lot of horsepower. Do you do more than gaming on your rig?

That thing is huge! Bet it sounds as big as it looks.

He fell victim to Intel's marketing.

Nevermind that the 3930K is only 5% slower at half the cost.

Or that the 2600K or 3770K (Depending on age) is pretty ******* powerful with an overclock.

Or that a single 7990 will outperform two Titans for $600 cheaper, and you aren't stuck with some cheap nVidia card.

@HesterDW, I do alot of designing/ 3D work along with gaming of course//

 

@Owndapwn, You could say I fell victim to Intel's marketing, but then again i guess Im an easy prey as I fell victim to headfi for having 20 headphones when I only have a pair of ear/

btw i cannot agree that a single 7990 will outperform titans in sli, especially titans that are OC'd tongue_smile.gif

I'm not sure where you got your specs from but they are simply wrong. A single 7990 costs $800 and is a dual GPU card. A single Titan is $1000 and is a single GPU card. A 7990 is only slightly faster than one Titan. A 7990 can't match two Titans. ATI has crossfire issues while SLI is smooth as silk. The only reason I can see to get an ATI card is for Eyefinity. As for the 3970x, maybe he simply wanted it. Why does it matter that it provides relatively close performance at half the cost? This is Head-Fi after all. Sure, a 3770k is fine for gaming, but maybe he does video or picture editing or even computational work? Why so much hate; especially with incorrect data?

 

EDIT: bcstyle posted before me.

Oh ok, nothing wrong with that. IMO it's only overkill if you can't afford it. wink.gif

You're lucky you didn't just say that on Overclock.net hehe. One 7990 can beat a single Titan, true, but one 7990 beating two Titans? I wish.

 
 
@Draygonn Thanks, I love it as well. It was a huge upgrade from my Logitech Formula Force GP.

I almost forgot to post my computer setup!

 

 

 

Mac Mini 2011 Edition

Intel i5 2550 VDT

8GB DDR3 1600MHz Corsair w/ tightened timings

Intel HD 3000

Samsung 128GB SSD

 

I bought this to replace my aging Q6600 w/ 8800GT box (I built it to play Crysis and quickly got bored of it). I couldn't be happier. I do most of my gaming on my 360 and Wii U. However, when needed, this little box cranks games out no problem. Gotta give credit to Apple and Intel for a solid little $500 system!

I find it very hard to believe you were playing Crysis at all on a Core 2 Duo and a $60 GPU.

You clearly didn't see the massive cooling system in the background---what you don't realize is that he's OC'd to 16GHz. wink.gif

You can do a lot when you're system is cooled below superconducting temperature.

 

Cheers

 

Or you could do a google search and see that a core 2 Quad and a $60 GPU exceed the minimum and recommended system specifications for Crysis
