Why do you say that? With an SLI system, if you have quality hardware, a decent cpu, ram and vidcards you shouldnt need to tweak it. It should be able to play any current game out there at around
Thats like saying anyone that buys a high performance sports car will still not be happy with what they have and rush out to buy nitrous injectors and one of those retarded looking 6 foot tall spoilers.
Actually, the people who mod there cars by stuff like civics and stuff, and mod it to make it perform higher and the like.
Yes, I know, but the added a 6' spoiler isnt going to get you very far. Of course I live in Oklahoma and the majority of car "modders" here where I work top out at civics with the fugly spoiler and the fat mufflers.

I think there are two main reasons for people to build over buying a complete system:
1. People that just enjoy doing it themselves. Nothing wrong with that. I hope to do it myself in the second half of this year.
2. Cost. Alot cheaper to build then buy one from a manufacturer (but prices are getting close on some rigs now. (ABS Ultimate M6 reviewed in Max PC had an FX-55, dual 6800 ultras, 1 gig corsair, lian-li case and extra goodies for about $3600)
What does that have to do with overclocking or SLI rigs though? Were you saying above that people that want to "just build" a system are not going to go with an SLI solution for their build or did you mean that they are not going to go out and buy a pre-built SLI rig from some manufacturer? You lost me on that post.

I cant dispute that. I would. I dont have a clue when it comes to overclocking though. And at the same time, alot of people might just go out and buy better vid-cards too. I guess the key word there is enthusiasts though.

You went back to stock though. I saw you were OC'd a bit in your previous sig. I have to ask though. Can you tell a difference from what your rig was clocked at (cant remember where you had it clocked to) as compared to "stock"? You have a nice rig there HP. I'm jealous! I'm sure your system can more then handle any game out right now at high settings with a great resolution (1024x768 with some AF and AA enabled).
