    it would sell imho, theirs an easy extreme option for a noob all in one box and ready to go,= win, just add mem and cpu, be interesting to see if they have managed anything clever with the pciex3(hopefully) interface between cpu and gpu, ya never know:)

    It depends on how much integrating saves them on costs, 1 PCB instead of 3, you can merge the VRMs for both GPUs into a single set that is shared, the PCI-E is wired directly up to the GPU. There are a lot of cost saving things they can do here, so for the price of having a rig this powerful, it wouldn't be unfathomable to replace the entire thing when you want to upgrade assuming the platform and cpu match perfectly because by the time you want to upgrade you may want a new CPU, Mobo, and video cards anyways. So why not merge them all together? It by no means impractical imho, it just depends on how they price it, how well it performs, and how reliable it is.
    sergionography says thanks.

    Though might as well go all the way with an included CPU and onboard RAM ;)
