      Damn good setup, but you wasted your money on the Turtle Beach headset... Waaaay over priced. Could have got something better for what they cost you. Unless Turtlebeach has actually improved since the last time i used one of their headsets.

      Other than that, nice build! :smile:

      TurtleBeach runs fine by me not many problems with it.

      Well, i mean for that price, you could have got something that sounds just as good for cheaper. But hey, if you're happy with them, then don't mind me xD

      I've lost faith in photobucket. they keep changing their layout, and then half the time pictures won't upload. imgur ftw.

      My.... refrain.... from.... criticizing the.... non-unlocked.... 3770.....

      Lol no, but in seriousness you're packing some power. It's just a shame you can't overclock with the 3770. Also, you're going to have a bit of a bottleneck on your GTX 660, you may want to think about adding a 2nd one in the near future.

      And be aware, some speakers are known to cause damage to monitors if they're too close; I'm cringing seeing that center speaker in your 5.1 set sitting right on top of your monitor. :dazed: :sweat:

      By the way, @Sonical, where did you purchase this?

        Oooohhh, okay, i think i did know about that. I remember my dad telling me that back when we had CRT monitors. I believe he said as long as the speakers are shielded, you should be fine, and i think mine are. They're only about 1.5 inches away from my monitor, but i think that will be fine.

        Yeah mine are on either side. Most likely they'll be fine.

        Also side note, I thought Turtle Beaches were good I was impressed with mine. What would you say is better? (I'm curious.)

        I really don't have a particular brand that is "great." I don't currently use a headset, i just use a pair of headphones that i got for half of it's regular price and a cheap desktop dildo.

        There was a couple really good Logitech headsets that i tested out a year or so ago. Thermaltake has the SHOCK ONE in their eSPORTS products that is really nice. Steelseries had 3 headsets featured on MaximumPC last week i think, and from what i've read they're priced well and have good feedback. I just know that from past experience that TurtleBeach is good, just not for how much it costs for any of their headsets. They're the Apple of headsets.

        Yeah I can't really get much better then my current set


        Not to jack the thread, but I thought $70 for my x12's (I think) was more then a great price. Oh well haha.

        Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy go with an unlocked 3770? NOOOOOOOOO.

        I've got mine running at 4.6ghz. But then again, mine's the K version.
