    Re: mr_s1973's - 3XS Velocity Z79 SLI

    Thanks Phillip for talking me into the EVGA 680 SC Signature cards, I have read some very positive reviews on them, very fast indeed they are on their own, but in SLI, woo hoo... Can't wait to get my hands on the system!!

    I am gonna buy a couple of sheets of Perspex to practice on, but if I don't like my handy work, I will pay to have it done professionally.

    Fair enough (i'd seriously go for professional work though!).

    Looks like we have very similar builds! What stage is your rig at?
    And did you research into the bigfoot network killer? Quite a few reviews I read said that it made no difference at all to network speed!
