I would get reference models, which do have soft vGPU control fir sure and can be flashed to 5870, and put my own cooler.

Yes and you use the asus 5870 bios, so you will have unlocked clock limits.

It will still only have 1440 SPs though, since AMD laser cut them.

You can tell if it is reference or not by looking at the pci express slot. If it is on a black/brown pcb and has the amd logo, then it is reference.

I'm still taking pics. I've had tons of final projects for college, so I haven't had time to get them all off of my camera from home and my cell phone. I wish I had a good DSLR. I'm also running out of ideas. I take a lot of on-the-road pictures because I commute so much. Otherwise, it's just random crap on campus that I take pics of.

Can anyone catch the meaning in this shirt? I get that it's making fun of frats and sororities, but that's all I know...

http://www.abercrombie.com/webapp/wc...-1_12245_12204

Is it just simply saying, "I felt a thigh" or is there more to it? lol

I think it's just supposed to be a play on words. I don't think it's really a reference to anything. Probably just making fun of sororities because people associate members to be sex-crazed.

Edit: Oh noes. Page 666.

Haha, a lot of frat boys are outcasts and become hard core partiers in college, cause the frats actually accept them.

I found out though, it's a frat/sorority on the East Coast.

Why not? GPU coolers are easy to install.
