Building an Outdoor Oven/kitchen

Just need to note down some research, but thought this would be the ideal solution. Seems to have everything a kitchen has. Awesome!

AMD A8 5600K crossfire card research

Finally deciding on a HD 7770 1GB GDDR5. It might not fully function, but perhaps it'll last a little longer, and with games which don't support crossfire I can use on its' own.
 Found it here for £65

Motherboard Biostar HiFi A75S3
1 x 16xPCIe 2.0 (you can plug 3.0 cards in though)

This forum advises a HD 6570, but I can do better!

Heres a youtube of a 7750

Here's a comparison of different cards 

looks like the HD 7850 might be the better bet now. Less power consumption (I have a bad PSU).

Not sure now if my motherboard can do crossfire?

Also, PSU only has 1 x spare 4 pin, no 6 pin!! It's OK because you can convert 2 x 4 pin to 1 x 6 pin.

HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 it is then. For around £80 second hand.

Gathering images and media for use in a Drupal site

So I have hit a slight stumbling block whilst trying to integrate media from external websites into my own.

I want to collect Photos from Flickr which are linked to the project and display them on the website in the form of a gallery.

The first thing I tried was flickr module. But I was a little underwhelmed by how simple it was. It simply adds links to the specific galleries etc. that you want. The block adds thumbnails, but thats about it. Whenever you click on anything it takes you straight to flickr. Not what I wanted.

The advantage of this is that every thing can have a 'flickr' field, and so can be used on the map which I have.

I tried using with Views, but I think I need to do some more planning to get this working. But I think it won't work as any fields/data just links to the flickr site.

The next thing to try is the Media module. This is more like what I'm looking for. There is a plugin for this module specifically for Flickr
