    Ohhh hell yes they will...

    Ive seen people drop 20k on server qoutes and buy 10,000 dollars in workstation.

    When you start to work tech, you see these things

    Seriously, if I had the cash in my hand right now, I'd buy. Sure, It's pure overkill, but I'd even need that storage space. It would be blazing fast..RAID SSD, 12GB, 12thread.


    :respect:


    I'm actually sad I cannot buy it...might be one of the few ways to buy an ARES card.

    This is great! Heck if I had the money I too would buy this. All I can do now though is stand behind the glass, stare and think about what could have been. THE POWER! THINK OF THE POWER! ONE COULD RULE THE WORLD!

    EDIT: I added it to my cart (Giggles).

    Well if you manage to get 1 I'd think you could manage two.

    For some reason I think that combo is way overkill.

    I watched the promo video. They pronounce it ah-soos? I thought it was ay-suhs. I've been pronouncing it wrong for like 10 years? O_O

    Anyway, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy all need to make accounts here so we can make requests for stuff like this.

    Just see the finished build, the red theme was maxed, though a FRIO would rock on this

    Holy hell that's hysterical :laugh:

    I had to watch the intro of the video just to hear it for myself-- and you know what? I don't care even though it makes me look like an idiot. Asus can get in line with the other things I mispronounce: Renault, Peugeot, Fourier, bourgeoisie, Myanmar, etc.
    Black Haru and MT Alex say thanks.

    Oh yeah I saw the youtube video of them building this rig for Newegg when I was interested in that Lian-Li case. Those cards are insane!

    At the very least they could have offered 12GB of ram instead of 6GB. The system is impressive even though there's now talk about ATI's Southern Islands GPU coming out soon.

    I'll spend probably 3 times less than that for my new rig if possible :D

    For $2200 you can build a Gulftown rig from retail parts if you spend wisely. :laugh:

    $2400 of that rig is vga alone.


    I love how the monster motherboard is drawrfed by the even MORE montrous vgas. Everything is supersized...obscene...WTF IS wrong with OEMs today?...SUPERSIZE....cost included...and guess what...24months, and it will be near obsolete.:laugh:

    But I still want it.

    i think newegg went a lil crazy with the 2 of everything why would u need 2 1.5tb drives and 2 2tb drives why not just get 4 of one or the other, 2 different BD burners again why ?

    also anyone notice the ridiculous shipping on the mars cards what is neweggs shipping now a % of the price
    i dont see how it could cost 15 bucks to ship a gfx card and only 20 to ship that case, weird
