    The North American personal computer builder MAINGEAR Computers, will be revolutionizing their Dash Friends and Family PC, F131 gaming machines, and EPHEX luxury gaming systems by integrating the latest AMD Spider platform. Equipped with the "standard" Spider accessories like AMD Phenom 9500/9600 CPU, MSI K9A2 Platinum 790FX motherboard and a pair of ATI Radeon HD 3800 series will get you quite a boost from a pre-build configuration. Other parts include Silverstone case, 1kW Silverstone Strider PSU, optional Maingear Arctic 120mm CPU water cooling system (adds 299$ to your bill), 2GB or 4GB Corsair XMS2-8500 DDR2 memory, PhysX acceleration and a lot more. In fact most of the configuration can be customized here.

    How can you even call it a spider with 4? I thought they had 8 legs?
    This should really be called turtle or lizard-fire.

    They must be using the hd3870 X2 cards. Looks pretty good, albeit high priced, as usual.

    Wonder when we will start seeing spider platform parts offered from oems.
