as you can see from my sig, it is high time i got a new pc. sure took longer than i wanted with student loans and a few years before i got a half-decent paying job. Pretty happy after splurging pretty hard on this build.

4x8gb g.skill ripjaws 2400 cl14
patriot ssd 240gb

I really like that case and cooler! Congrats on the new purchases. :D What'd all this run you, ~$1,000?
Phew, you know youre dated when you have a crossfire bridge xD haha. Nice upgrade, the 1070 should fit nicely with that.

I didn't even realize that windows 10 doesn't support legacy drivers and catalyst 13.1. Had to dig around to get it to work, but luckily i got crossfire and catalyst suite to work. Temps seem okay 33 C idle and 55 C load.
Remember the good old days when I post like this would get like 50 replies? Yeah.... :)
yeah i feel like the forum is a bit slower than i remember...

iirc 4890 only supports up to DX10.1. It won't run 3dmark11 or newer lol
