Here is mine:
(Yes, I still have an IDE HD )
Got my 2 8800 Ultras today i will post some pics soon wanna test them out first.
honestly..... i'm surprised you bought them so close to the release of a new series..... ESPECIALLY when even Newegg pulled them off the site, in what i can only assume is preparation to release the card that's officially replacing the 8800 Ultra, the 9800GX2.
I don't think it is a prep, I mean you can't exactly confirm when the GX2 will be released after Cebit and if nVidia did anything it would first tell EVGA or something like that. GX2 might sill just be a myth or not. Also nVidia isn't really going to emphasize on the high end cards(a.k.a. GX2 or close) but more mainstream like GTS 512mb, GT and GS, because that is where the money lies.
EDIT: Updated my specs and I am going to replace my 320gb with a 500gb 32mb cache(New ones). My 320gb did not die just I need a external storage drive. Oh, and a non-Hacked Vista. The real deal, decided to finally get the real thing.
The new camera
I love this little thing. Still need to tweak it a bit though.
Man what a beautiful case that is SurrealX, I bet some idiot sold that :bang:, lol! In all seriousness it really is looking great man! By the way I own the same exact digital camera and love it! I've owned it for about a year now and still don't know how to take advantage of some of the features, lol! My only critique is that there is too much dust on all that hardware!!!
highly doubt the GX2 is a myth. rumor says that it could be released as early as March 11th.
Hey SurrealX, how r you finding the Orbital? What have you got it doing so far? Have you got beyond the standard profiles yet?
My 2x 8800GTX gave me a hard time so i sent them back and got a tech to do some testing and he said the 8800gt in sli ran better. Worst part was he tried another brand new pair of 8800gtx's and same thing happend he was getting a weird lag issue. He then tried ultra's which workd fine
almost same rig as mine. ^_^

Hey surrealx, is that Roger_D25's old case? The matrix orbital is sold you looks great in that case. Matches nice.
Hey surrealx, is that Roger_D25's old case? The matrix orbital is sold you looks great in that case. Matches nice. Looks like you got further with that thing than I did. Very nice setup by the way!
Yeah. I need to get some dust filters for the computer The A560 is a great camera.
I like the Matrix Orbital. Kinda hard but still playing around with it. Trying to figure out how to setup some stuff still.
Yeah, it's Roger's old case. I first saw the Matrix Orbital in Mike's stacker then saw how beautiful it looked in his TJ07 and I had to get one. Luckily you sold it cheap! I don't think I ever seen Roger's setup with the TJ07. Or I just don't remember. Next upgrade is probably watercooling. I've been looking at some stuff and just needing money.
