With the current price of DVD burners it probably wouldn't be much cheaper, they're down to what 20 bucks now?

Edit make that 16 bucks:

I agree, there's no reason to keep the old one.

Once you get the CD Keys you can plug those into Steam.

It says, DRM: Steam. Though I'm not sure what happens if you download it directly from Amazon. My guess is that it will require Steam.

So, I've stopped playing Assassins Creed III a few months back and I tried playing it recently and it was all down hill. I forgot how to play it. I'm about 43% through too. I don't want to restart it just yet either.

Started playing Dishonored and I like it. I really like stealth games. I'm not sure how far in I'm in but it looks great on my 2960x1440 monitor. Everything cranked up First real game I've tried playing on the new monitor that I got back in December. Might play Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag after so I can maybe return to playing III.

There's still a few of games that aren't SLI compatible. At the time it was the better choice since it was cheaper and faster then a 580. Actually they are still a bit faster then the 680. I'm not sure what I'll do when it comes time to replace my 560's. Maybe do dual 760's. In SLI ($500) they're supposed to be faster then a 780 Ti which starts at $700. There is a 50% increase in power when at full tilt but that's not really an issue for most people. If I was to go with a single car I'd have to drop down to a 780 and not a Ti which is about 10% faster it. I set my limit on video cards at around $500 and they usually last 5-6 years.
