Picked up a pair of Asus Direct CU II GTX 780 cards. Showed up on open box and I snatched them up as fast as I could because I know they go very fast. They are definitely a nice upgrade. So much smoother then the crossfire was. Didn't really realize how bad it was before until now.

Thanks, the last time I was on the green side is when I built a computer with two 7800GTs in 2004/2005. Been AMD since then but now seemed like a good time to switch.

Indeed, I love the ROG colors!

I do have one issue I have come across however and it is just for Crysis 3. An assortment of other games I have ran are just fine such as Battlefield 4 and Metro LL. The computer will just shut off and turn back on with a second or two delay. I was thinking it may be because I tried to save some money and bought a cheaper XFX power supply, but why then only for one game? I believe it was made by Seasonic so I figured it would be great but now I question it. I do know the hybrid mode does not work, the fan stays off at all times! This was when I first built the computer back in March. I touched the power supply and just about burnt my hand. But I didn't want to send it back and wait as it worked fine in normal mode.

I wish I had the money to throw at 2 cards like that! Look really nice and work well with the board.

And when I saw your monitors, well, lets just say that it made me look at my 'Triple monitor setup' and laugh

I also retired the 10 year old Logitech G5 mouse and replaced it with a Corsair M95 and the MM600 mouse mat. It definitely helps with my aiming abilities in shooters but I still am not very good lol! I use only 4 of the programmable buttons so far, it takes some getting used to.
