What do you guys think?

i7 950 w/ Thermaltake Frio (Only want a 4Ghz OC)
6GB Corsair XMS
60GB OCZ Vertex 2E SSD
1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3
Asus Sabretooth mobo
2x 6870 Saphire Radeon Xfire
XFX Pro850w Core Edition PSU
Coolermaster HAF X case

I feel like a traitor not going the nVidia SLI route but the scaling on these 6870s was too much to ignore.

Parts get here tomorrow, going to be a long day no doubt.


Very nice rig dude. I would love it. Pictures soon pls.

Got it built and setup, not taken too many pics but have some.

I never realised how damn huge this tower was going to be. LoooooL I have no room for it.

Quite funny how ive got it setup right now.

Finally, may get some benchies done. Had to format twice. Made the mistake of installing Win 7 with the second storage drive plugged in. Somehow it got confused and I ended up getting a Bootmgr error. Reinstalled and everything has been fine since.

Just ran 3D Vantage.

My P score was 25,000 something odd and the GPU score just under 28,000.

Is that decent?

Why on earth would I move to Liverpool? They steal your hubcaps and dip in your bins.

Booted PC up this morning, not longer after hard lock... freezing up in Chrome.

Obviously, being a new PC build I began to **** ones pants. Memtest, prime95, LinX, Intel Burn Test. All came back clean.

I suspected it was to do with ram timings, voltages etc because I never had any indication of display issues. Reset everything to stock. Stressful!

Finally, after one of these hardlocks I left the PC frozen to go off and find something to hang myself with. Came back, low and behold "Display driver had stop responding and has recovered" ....event viewer kicked back amdkmdap error.

amdkmdap.... wtf

Swapped the two cards around, driver sweeper and reinstall. 30 mins now and not had a crash yet.... phew.

The cause? Uninstalling and reinstalling the profiles without reinstalling the whole driver set.

The Catalyst drivers aren't ready for this these yet.
