It's going to be AWESOME!!!  Anybody try out Dead Island yet?  The trailers on Youtube looked promising, but the reviews I'm seeing say it's not that great.  What are yall going to do with your mining rigs?

I'm trying to decide whether to try to buy a used rig off someone for cheap now that the BTC/USD ratio is high, or buy some new cards (or continue to avoid mining.)

If I run a miner, I would do so where 1) power is cheap, and 2) I need the waste heat anyway, and I have such a place about 500 miles from where I normally am making maintenance a pain in the ass.  I assume that a lot of miners overclocked their cards to the n'th and are not really that knowledgeable about thermodynamics to start out with.   So a used system will likely have been strained.

Can anyone suggest how detrimental irresponsible overclocking is to various cards in actual practice?

I stole one of my 6990's for my BF3 rig, running BC2 everything maxed out at 110+fps so I'm confident it's going to run BF3 awesomely.
Beta is Tuesday and I seriously can't wait, booked the week off work for it too  Cheesy

Dead island is a fairly decent game, its a bit like borderlands, well worth playing through though, buts it's pretty buggy and the developers don't seem to be in any hurry to release fixes.

I only mine on my crossfire 6970's at nite.During the day to late evening I play BC2 & L4D2 on our servers @

These rock in BC2 on high settings @ 90-120fps.

I can't wait for BF3 either,we will have our own server for it too.

Cya on the field !!!!!!!

BTW,I'm holding on to my BTC until they get to at least $15 each.
