New video card. ASUS GTX570


Except it was too large for my ATX Mid tower case. (Antec Three Hundred)

So I have to send it back.

*record scratch*

No, **** that noise. I had to get out the pliers and tin snips.





Working out pretty well so far. I'm estimating around a 35-45% increase over my GTX460. On the same settings Crysis Warhead went from 25-32fps to 42-50fps. And in Shogun 2 the computer-chugging battles now stay up at reasonable levels, 30-35fps vs 18-24fps
