Vertically stacked 1200s!!! That would be the coolest mod ever.
ya, but i have this problem
its called "Go big or GTFO" lol
and, i may really look into it. seriously. have a HTPC in the bottom 1200, and the gamer PC in the upper 1200. just cut the floor out between them and cut the top off the bottom 1200, an it might actually fit well.
Though, dosnt the rec PSU for a 5850 still 450W like there 48xx counter parts?
Boy do i <3 my Toxic/Atomic editions
Im just always worried about a bottleneck to the GPU
if i were to get that, dont you think my PSU would be ok with handling that inplace of my 4850?
later i am wanting to get a better PSU anyways tho, an keep the current one and 4850 card for a HTPC
