Antec Truepower New... Yea the wiring took a bit of time but I got it to where i like it... Im pissed at myself cuz i didn't wait for the fixed motherboards to get a sandybridge instead of my 1090t... SB blows my #### outta the water... W/e, im happy it plays all my games the way I want it... Except for NBA2k11 theres some graphical glitch with the text that still hasnt been adressed

Haha, yeah. Those gaming benchmarks for Sandy Bridge is crazy. It's like a 20% improvement over the X4/X6 AMD chips, and the sad thing is it's priced the same. So AMD has to come out swinging with the Bulldozer.

Should've switched to Nvidia :dancingcool:. It could be the lack of updates for the game, but who knows.

April, May, or June. NVIDIA's dev's were saying its way faster than Sandy Bridge, if it priced right then I wouldn't hesitate to stay with AMD.

I never fully understood SSD's... So anything reading/writing off the drive will work much faster, but what exactly would benefit from that? Cuz if I get a 60gb SSD, all I could really fit on there is the OS and random programs, not really games (1 game is like 10gb nowadays)... I dunno

Nice, I'm thinking about buying a NZXT case next week. My Antec 300 looks messy inside due to no cable management.

What's your specs?

Depends what resolution you're going to be gaming at. Gaming at 1920x1080, you'll need a GTX 560 overclocked or GTX 570, 6950 2GB. GTX 580 is overkill but overkill for a PC Gaming rig is a great thing.

I used to be also, but there processors are lacking compared to what Intel has out now. Hopefully Bulldozer will win me over.
