    Will do in a little while sah

    I got some costs last night.

    It came to around £93 for all the aluminium to build one as I've found somewhere dirt cheap that cuts to size etc.

    Its the cutting the fan holes, pci slots and generally getting everything in the right place that will be difficult and very time consuming so I'm gunna get all the drawings sorted to have some quotes done on getting the front,rear and top panels laser cut.

    Got my card this morning, much appreciated BaBa, I have no where to put it though. I thought it would be the same length as my old 8800GT but its not its longer so doesn't fit in my media rig and I dont have the a PSU or Mobo to run the GTS450 and GTS250 in one rig.

    Yes, indeed... I've just had to prise myself out of the ground and dust myself down after having been stomped - nay, pulverised - by your new size 15s. They appear to fit you well sah :p

    ...and TheTross gratefully received it this morning. Thanks once again kev! :D

    Which now begs the following question: can a gtx280 and a gts250 be run side-by-side, and is it even recommended with a 620W PSU? (Bearing in mind the Q9550 is modestly overclocked to 3.4Gz but there's not a lot else in the box, so I assume the answer to be 'yes' but am checking to be on the safe side.)

    Am running with just the 280 for the moment as I only have one more PCI-E cable available and the 250 requires two :(

    It squeals well... but never mind, I'll just turn my music up another notch or two. Now, how much should I push the card? :D
