    EVGA GTX 970 ACX 2.0 - does it sag?

    Dang haha. Thanks for letting me know. My current Asus GTX 670 is really bad for it. I had a look at pictures of your rig gFrenken97 and it doesn't look too bad; well, easily less sag than my Asus. Thanks guys
  2. HI all, as the title says i'm wanting to know about this card. Can anyone who owns one pleas fill me in? This is the specific model i'm looking at: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1692&products_id=29313&zenid=2066c718254e51d71e3963413b7f1147 Cheers

    Audio Technica ATH-AD700

    Ok, so I'm not the best with the terms, but trust me i wouldn't be spending the money on gear if i didn't hear the difference....What i was basically trying to put across is that the fiio wont make a huge difference in transparency, as the headphones themselves will have more impact on that than source or amplification by far.How would you guys describe the difference the Fiio will make for the OP's AD700s?

    Audio Technica ATH-AD700

    More sound better but probably a little clearer due to better stereo imaging and timing cause of the DAC. Your on board will be fine :)

    nvidia Physx Debacle !

    As far as i know to use "Advanced physX" you have to have the chip on the card and regular physX can be done by the CPU. Is it possible that the new consoles wont be able to run advanced physX?

    4K gaming rig planning

    IMO building a system of that caliber deserves 2011. Even if the Sandy Bridge-E chips do fall behind Haswell and i highly doubt they will. Ivy-Bridge-E is going to be released on 2011 as well so you have an option to upgrade down the track. 2 Titans and a 3930k should do very nicely imo.

    Best audio solution for $100

    Awesome score on the Wharfedale's :) I completely agree if the OP can find an amp and speakers then go for it.

    Best audio solution for $100

    I do agree an amp and speakers would be better but at $100 you would be having to look second hand...

    Any audio guys?

    Thanks, from what i read the O2 doesn't seem to have any major flaws apart from being to neutral for some peoples taste... oh and some claim its a little thin sounding in the mids. I think i might go for the O2 at this point, then sort of work out from there what i want. it really kills me that i cant get demo's of all this kit. When i brought my HIFI only 6 months after i had it i decided i dint like the bass of the NAD gear and sold my CD player and AMP for a Rega Brio-r and Rega DAC. Anyway, i'm pretty confident i will like the O2 and i wouldn't mind trying something that's really neutral to see if that's what i like or not.

    Any audio guys?

    I do like plenty of detail and a lot of clarity, hence considering the O2/ODAC, dont suppose you have heard the O2/ODAC to compare?

    Sound Card Options for 125$

    Nice choice on the Grado's :) I'm using the SR225i's and love them :) Your Cerwin Vegas will defiantly benefit from the STX's DAC :)

    Sound Card Options for 125$

    The music quality on the STX is a lot better than the other 2 due to its onboard Burr Brown DAC. keeping in mind, you have to have a decent set of headphones or speakers.
