Doh! My bad....

I just finished my rig with 2 9800GTX's and it runs very well, but i spent my wad already and i have to waite til next year to upgrade agin.

Nice rig as usual Jakup, you never mention how much you really pay for those cards.

I know The Big One a member here who i know will have them too cuz he is rich too.
LOL - Maybe your thinking Chino HILLS? Chino is an average small city mainly with people who make poor to moderate income, but house prices, etc are still high. Chino Hills on the other hand, yes, those people generally have a good income.

Grats on the rig Jakup. Did you ask Nalu if I can come check it out tonight?

Allot of the comments about only the rich buy these cards is kind of annoying. You donít have to be rich to be an enthusiast. If you have something you love to do. You will find a way to do it. Iím very far from rich. But I work my ass off and skip out on some things to afford the stuff I love.


Anyways Grats Jakup, Looking great man. Just need to get them on some water.

First off those scores are great! those are better than Vince's air scores (thats saying a lot IMO)

I would like to know wattage as well.

I am 90% sure that EVGA doesnt have a employee purchase program, and even if they did there isnt as much of a discount as most people think.

$1800 on GPU's isnt bad, I just dropped $7k on parts to make my car faster. Its all about your priorities.


Congrats on the scores/gpu's again Jakup!

Is this your 24/7 clocks?

Im very curious , this guy has to have the best rig on this board or he can't survive. But with all his gaming gear, just how good is jakup in gaming period?

Some of these guys with super ubber rigs usually play in big tournys and win money too like the bigone guy.

And their guys who have super rigs who aren't good at games.
