    It's a tricky one. Normally I'd recommend against the 3820 as a "if you only want a quad what are you doing on X79?" chip, but in your case it might well be the one to go for, as the only non-epic-overkill solution available on the chipset.

    I dont think it is appropriate to be posting peoples location without their permission. The winners for both competitions were selected at random and are spread out across the world including Canada, Scandanavia, etc.

    What's this? :w00t:

    [​IMG]

    That was real quick. Time for the black box to be dragged outta the noughties!

    [​IMG]

    I ran a bench with my old system. Batman Arkham City at pretty much max on the C2Q3GHZ & GTX4601GB. This is the baseline and not bad considering. Should give a clear indication of the leap in performance.



    1st up - EVGA GTX 670.

    [​IMG]

    Core i7 3770K

    Last but not least, check this thing out. I was surprised when I saw the huge gold box! Usually I'm not a fan of 'gold' stuff. It's highly specced though, and when I got the board out of the box I couldn't deny that it was a striking piece of kit. :cool:

    [​IMG]

    My initial intention was to go with a black/red/orange system colour scheme, only the numbskulls who I bought the case from sent me the wrong version. Getting hold of an orange light panel for the front will be a tough search now but I'll keep my eyes open.

    I wasn't expecting the goodies to arrive so soon so I cannot install the CPU or board yet, no DDR3 :( So I installed the 670 to see how it ran. I ran my Batman bench again with surprising results. I.e. it's pretty much the same as the 460. Strange, something else must be the bottleneck and not the GFX.



    I'll update next week when I have some DDR3 to run :)

    Sweet, man if I won all that stuff I would be frothing at the mouth, that's pretty much a complete rig. :lol:

    Can the tracking numbers be sent to us so we can monitor our prizes and see how close they are to us? :)
