For those of you with the BFG card and are getting the far cry 2 bundle, make sure to log into your account and check your myProducts tab. I saw I had to press a button on that page that said "order" to actually order the far cry 2 bundle and didn't do it till today . Now it says the bundle is ordered under the myproducts tab. I swear I don't remember that being there before.

just got a BFG 280 OC from newegg. Question, when I turn that Fur stability test at stock clocks, it gets to 103'C after about 5 minutes @ 100% fan speed before I get scared and stop the test. However, there are no artifacts and system is perfectly responsive. When I play far cry 2 the highest it goes is 70'C. is this normal?

also, both my case doors are off.

I'm waiting on my BFG 2600 to come in the mail... probably arrive Monday. Very jazzed about it. Whenever I return to PC gaming from a time away, I always need to buy a new graphics card. It's like hitting a ship with a wine bottle.

Yeah... the extra zero was because I am so awesome.

Also, it sucks not wanting to play any games until it comes in on Monday.

If you don't go SLI, she'll find something else to get pissed about. So what's to lose?
