mah GTX780TI SLI haz landed...







i'll post benchmarks when i haz the time... in the train wreck state that is MWO (DX9, no SLI support) it can chuck out 40fps average at 5760x1080 at full settings... decent and will improve over time (since PIGGY, then it won't)...

what is important is that it run the hanger module (star citizen) at 5760x1080 like butter, very high settings... so this rig will take me through star citizen -- which is what is important...

the real test is how this will perform with metro 2033..

Thinking of getting a Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS set (http://www.thrustmaster.c ... ucts/hotas-warthog). Think it's a good buy or should I get something else? This will mainly be for flight sims and SC (when it comes out).

so I was planning to paint my RAM as I got fm another hardwarezoner... (its blue and my rig is red & black)...

bought the flat black spray paint and before turning into bed I wanted to remove the heat spreaders...

so started off okay...



and then... one of the RAM chips got removed by accident... equals dead stick..



yes, I know I should have used a heat gun.

I have finally, in 2019, got my desk pit to a state where I am happy to show it off. Sometimes, it's that one little piece, that makes ordinary, to exceptional.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, tastes ok, but a little dull.



hmmmmmm, even the taste of dany on my lips, mmmmm still dull.



ah, here we go...



ah yes, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, TEK-cellent!

As per Mycrus's request, I went with a Nier Black and White theme, as I think about that game even when I'm not playing it. Less is more type of thing. Anyway, enjoy my pics and you will see my lunch today as well as an overrated phone I paid to much for. tee hee.

Time to monitor the situation.... ahem



I could overclock it but why. 191 FPS on Fortnite, 260 on MWO (Max) and 75 on Nier (4K).



It's Black, it's white, yeah, yeah, yeah....



If you look closely you can see the only colour belongs to an awesome coaster. tee hee, and my lego mecha too.



Alrighty, close up, and form on lunch...



What a waste of money....



Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yes, some big meat for a big boi dare.

@H, Tek, I don't know if you have an ALdi nearby but they have a ripper PC with an RTX 2070.
