Waiting on GPU

After a week of messing with my new GTX460, I RMA'd it Friday, it should be in early this week. In the meantime, I thought I would upload some process pics of filthy case, and my new power supply. I hadn't opened my case for about 3 years, or more and the dust bunnies had been screwing like rabbits in my case...

New power supply and faulty card.

dude, that 460 is intense. but on the dust bunnies... wow. way to lose performance and component life :facewall:
You should have seen the inside of the case, they were running around!!! I used half a can of air inside, then I realized it was spawning from the front of the case, then I popped it off and found all of that...

Is that dust? or just fur growing inside your case??? xD J/K BTW that's a good power supply!!! 750W is enough!

I clean my case / parts every 3 months >.< I don't like the dust + It just overheat my PC

That has to be the most filthiest case I ever saw in my life. If anyone else has a much worse example, say no more. :p

Air dusting won't do anything but put the dust back in your room to be sucked back into your case over time. You have to hit that with a vacuum!

And I hope you dusted outside, or else you may have developed asthma.

omg thats the most nastiest freaking dusty computer I've seen in my life. One heck of a lack of performance omg stoned
Yea, i just poured all that dust back into my room so I could inhale it. Lol, I vacuumed. I don't fix things that aren't broken, I guess that philosophy applies to cleaning my case as well.

Idle temp - ~40C (thats while i use the computer. when the computer goes into idle mode where i havent touched it in a while, it stays about 35C because the card underclocks itself to save energy and lower the temp)
Full load - ~60C

FPS: 30.0
Scores: 756
Min FPS: 3.2 (i believe this was because when it switches scenes but o well still a kick awesome card. :p)
