    Ive picked a card thats cheap enough for people to buy and bin if they need to, and you have a few weeks to get a card. I can’t wait to see people half ass modding them.

    After just having a quick look now they do seem pretty cheap, although for those selling they might get prices now lol. Also probably is good card to learn mods on and not a 780 :)..

    Sweet. How on earth do you mod a card? Is it possible to have the 610 in another slot and tell 3Dmark to use that card and not main card? Or maybe more gear swapping etc.

    Unfortunately I reckon I will be up against it given my boards 1.8v vdimm limit. :Paranoid:

    I was thinking z87 or z97 since good overclocking Z77 boards are getting pretty hard to get but I may be able to fix your OCF unless the pins have broken off and I maybe interested in the UP7

    so i think i may have a GT610 in my multimedia computer in my lounge room.

    might be time to see what i can make the old girl do

    also are there any rules on how cards etc have to be mounted?? can i have the gfx card running off a couple of ribbon cables and not actually in the case??

    As long as gpuz says gt610, i dont mind how you get it running. Im pretty sure you cant run them in sli, so no sli, but if you need a ribbon cable that will be fine.

    You know the old saying, you gotta be in it to win it ;)

    For the record, i have absolutely no idea what this Z97 part means. This was totally made up by Matt :D
