    I think I am going to do a clean this weekend. Swap out the h55 on the CPU for h100i and put the vrm heat sinks on the 290. I could really use the 280 for my amd 8320 system. It's running a 7750 gddr 3 edition (crap).

    I will wish everyone else good luck, but I already have a decent gaming system with dual graphics cards and a SoundBlaster Z which was recently added.

    Two Kbs too. One for games one for typing.

    Is it bad to have two? I've been running two kb/m for years.

    Not a very good picture, but my basement is in disarray right now as I've been prepping it for a tile job so this is as good as it gets.



    An R9 280 would make a nice upgrade to my 7950 I think.
