    My fingers are itching so bad. I just want to dive in and swim around like an electronic crazy Scrooge McDuck
    Oh, I forgot to mention what my friend found.

    Geforce 9800GT
    250 GB HDD
    Linksys PCI Wifi card
    Fan controller
    Memory card reader

    and...

    Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro. He says it works, though he's waiting for the unlock code he bought to see if it will actually work as a cell phone.

    Anyways guys:

    Thinking about "downgrading" to ivybridge and single GTX680. Watercooled of course. inb4 first world problems.

    Also, for those that say i5's are better in games, that's wrong. BF3 can take advantage of more threads if you learn to disable core parking. My buddies running 2600's 3820's you name it all shown a significant smoother gameplay and just a bit more FPS. I'll paste the .reg and instructions to do so soon.

    In the mean time. Should I sell my mobo, 980X, and GPU's just to "downgrade"

    3770K, with Maximus V Gene or Formula, some 4x4GB DDR3-1866, or 4x8GB, and single GTX680? I've gotten some decent offers so it's very tempting to do so.

    Ooh, that brings this to mind.
    I kind of want to SLI my 9800GT, though that'd be pointless (Unless it's actually pretty good, I haven't looked into SLI performance boosts.)

    Edited:

    A very small Google search makes it appear as it really isn't worth it, unless any of you guys say otherwise.

    What I really do want (and need) is a Wifi adapter with packet injection capabilities. If any of you has one in a working condition, I am interested.

    Seeing as everyone is looking to trade stuff.

    I'm after an AM3 board that i can unlock and overclock my athlon II x3 435 with, or a board to replace my dead gigabyte GA-P35 DS3R

    I have a heavily modified 8800GS (flashed to a 9800GT, Vmodded, overclocked and stable) for trade.

    I have an e6600 if you don't want the 8800GS

    I know for a fact that this one works for it:

    I'm not sure if I know where mine is, sadly.

    Would just like to point out I don't think anybody has ever said an i5 is better than an i7 in gaming, what people mean is the extra features of an i7 wont be utilized by many games and you end up spending tons more money for practically no benefit over the i5 in games.

    Considering GK104's run with much less power and much less heat, seems perfectly reasonable to me.

    Man, I have the itch... really badly.

    Main factor, to watercool or not to watercool.

    If the guy goes through with his offer, I should be able to get the 3770K, Mobo, maybe some RAM, and a 7970 DC II, or GTX680 ( I can't be arsed to wait tho )
