    This system is by far the best AMD system out there with the 2 8800GTX's pumping out amazing scores and everything else HOW EVER I recently had 1 of the 2 8800GTX short circuit due to... god noes why.... either way the new one should be here late this week I'm testing it right now with a Sapphire ATI Radeon X1650 running 600/1400 and might be getting a second one just to screw with it ^.^ I love this little card actually not as good as the 8800 but i just love it cause it cost 50 n is amazing ^.^

    As far as the price goes it's been about $1850 with everything except if you add on shipping which is about another $250 for all the parts and another $40 for new wiring, tape, glue, thermal paste... soooo either way It's about $2000USD and I can't say anything bad about it it's amazing!

    No offense to you Pyro, but I thought you would have went with dual GT's not GTX's. Meh, still a kickin rig anyway you put it.

    I mean c'mon raptors in raid really can't get much better unless you purchase some really kickass SSD's.

    I personally would have gone for the GTS but that's for the reason of money...

    but when it comes to SLI (as much as I am no fan of ATI) I have to admit that Crossfire appears to be much better than SLI but Nvidia seems better in single card setup.... just my opinion

    Updated: Currently still waiting for newegg to send my 8800 back to me seeing as it went boom >.< the conductors on the back of the card well one of them overheated some how and caused the card to discharge static and literly melted one of the conductors no idea HOW that happened >.> but it did, go go warrenty!

    Either way I will be doing some work and completely disassembling the PC today and I shall post pictures of my latest task which inculdes:

    -Re-Painting the exterior to the case
    -Painting the interior of the frame to the case
    -Painting some of the wires straight black to allow them to be hidden / tucked away.

    I'd agree with that statement except for the fact being that ATI cards can preform alot better if ATI decided to go for it and get smart on their single/crossfire GPU cards >.> other wise I"m an Nvidia Fan Boi :(

    Lost hope on AMD, i mean, i want to overclock, and 150MHz is not overclock (i'm talking about the Phenoms)
