The 5870's fan died today.

Started with a loud screeching and now it's a periodic loud grinding noise. It's still "working" for now but the noise is annoying and I suspect it'll totally die and the card will overheat soon.

Going to be replacing with an ASUS MATRIX-R9280X-P-3GD5.

edit: Guess that was sold out... getting this instead:
ASUS ROG MATRIX Radeon HD 7970 Platinum
It'll be here tomorrow thanks to Amazon Prime.

Was helping a friend design a machine today.

Prices haven't really changed, most have gone up.

Here's my machine from last year with today's prices:

Finally got around to doubling the RAM. Figured I'd do so before the exact RAM I got was no longer for sale.

I've recalculated the price of this system twice now since I bought the parts and twice it has gone up instead of down*

$1,200** for a machine that plays everything but Shattered Horizon maxed.


*only the processor dropped in price, every other part increased somehow
**assuming you have drives, monitor, and peripherals

It's a fuckin beast!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT)
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
Rosewill BRONZE series RBR1000-M 1000W
Antec Twelve Hundred Black Computer Case

But how the hell could I do 1680x1050 on my Samsung and 1680x1050 within 1080p (black borders) on my Sharp cloned with my ol' x1950xt.
But now Windows 7 and this beast of a card won't let me do that... Argh!
