Additional Details

Whoops, OC is 4.06 on the CPU. 700/15xx/13xx on the GPUs. 3x285s

I was hoping they could be higher though for both OCs.

I have Liquid cooling and blah blah.

I definitely splooged on the purchase but money isn't an issue so I don't care.

Is it possible to tweak this PC further myself or (under the circumstances that I had bad luck with parts) is this it?

Keep in mind I have LC and blah blah blah

And on a sidenote: do you guys think this will play Crysis well?

    ? Being without the ego is impossible; nonetheless the centre of the ego, can flow someplace else. ? Love is centring the ego in somebody or something else. ? Being selfless advise loving others, thereby projecting and centring your ego there. ? it relatively is like that action picture 10,000 BC: some human beings have small circles (their family participants, the community) and there are the few whose circle encumpasses society. ? perhaps, that incorporates an identity shift; you will desire to shelter a clean character or character and that frequently incorporates going exterior you convenience zone, and shifting or perhaps wreck own limitations. ? there is the ego, the centre of ego and the dimensions of ego. ?

    Only putting an i7 965 to 4.0ghz (especially on water) is a waste. Personally, I'd go for somewhere around 4.5ghz. The gpu core and shader clocks can go higher, but I'd leave the memory where it is.

    daemon rider - Three gtx285's in tri-sli completely rapes a gtx295 (even two of them will beat a single gtx295).

    OC-ing is trial and error, and it highly depends on the hardware itself. If you got a bad batch, you wouldn't go far with overclocking. Try to go as far high as possible while keeping the system stable (if it becomes unstable, you'll know it).

    Also, keep in mind that you'll need a 64-bit Operating System since you're using 6GB of RAM. Not all games work well with 64-bit system.

    In any case, don't overclock to 4.5Ghz unless you want to buy a new one next month.
