I love the smell of new hardware in the morning! Heck, I'm here to share my new card installation!

That's my new card; XFX had great packaging by the way.

Out with the old...

...And in with the new.

    Congrats, Beat!

    Interesting configuration -- don't think I've seen a case before where the PSU was mounted on the floor, rather than at the top.
    Also, I somehow expected you to have much better cable management habits, though... The inside of that case resembles mine

    Hey! This was my first build! It's funny you mention that, I'm waiting on some velcro straps and I'm going to re-wire my entire case.

    Congo rats. Guess this means you're gonna be deadlier in BC2 now?

    These high end cards are killer on cases. When I got my current beastie (Nvidia 265 something or other) I could not fit it into my old case. It was as long as the case had between the back plate and the drive bays. Toss in a 1/4" lip on the back of the case and that's all she wrote. I bought an SLI MB but there's no way I could get 2 cards onto the MB let alone in my upgraded case. Good thing I don't need to; yet.
