  1. Hey Doomworld it's been a while I know.

    I got back into the computer building game for a little while but decided to go ahead and just buy what I had before I let myself lose motivation and put it on the back burner again. I know this made for some probably poor choices but whatever. It's built.

    Not listed:
    Keyboard: Filco Majestouch-2 Cherry Brown keyboard
    Demciflex dust filters

    What I already had:
    Dell U2312HM for the really low input lag
    I've got a G400 with a MX518 shell put onto it (the G400 surface slips out of my hand).

    - I got the DirectCU II version of the 680. It takes up three expansion slots in the back.
    - No one told me the case was this big! Next to a slim Xbox 360 for comparison.
    - Overall view

    The cherry brown keyboard is awesome but I'm not liking the tactile bump as much as I thought I would. It makes typing great but I just feel that double taps are kind of annoying with it. Might try a red at some point.

    I've still got stock cooler on the 3570K. I'm a terrible person I know. I'll overclock in the future but didn't want to worry about it right then. This guy at work is trying to convince me to get a Corsair closed loop water cooler. I'm considering buying a Corsair H100i. What do you guys think?

    Go ahead and joke on my choice of Windows 8. It's not terrible after getting used to and with the SSD the system boots up in 5 seconds flat.

    I know my cables are a mess, but what's pictured is cleaned up from the even worse mess it was before. If I put the 24 pin bundle and the one that goes to the CPU through the holes, I can't get the back panel back on. Any ideas?

    I just know this thing better support the damn shaders GZDoom needs to do the lighting right.

      Interesting, I didn't know Asus also made GeForce cards (I thought it was NVidia's property). Does this mean they support CUDA programs?

      Lots of different manufacturers make Nvidia and ATI cards based on the "reference" designs. Sometimes they are identical to the spec, sometimes they come factory overclocked with things like bigger fans, etc.

      Yeah, this card is very very non-reference.

      NVidia doesn't manufacture any of their own cards do they?

      Also, I'm pretty sure any card based on a CUDA supporting NVidia chipset is going to support CUDA programs no matter which company manufactures the card.

      They used to release OEM cards, yeah. Don't know if that still happens.
