    And the i7 920.

    I think that the Q6600, E8400, and i7 920 stand in the Hall of Fame of Intel CPUs. Maybe one of the E5x00s or 45nm E6x00s as well

    Hmm, I am biased towards AMD/ATi, but it's for practical reasons.

    Yup, I totally respect the authoritah of these cards. They rock for high-end purposes, but they suck royal dong when it comes to performance/watt, heat production and silence, which are my areas of interest :)

    i was kinda biased when the 58xx series came out, but that was more because of the tremendous performance for the money they offered :rockout:

    but this was a demo deal, so for 275$ compared to 450 for a new, i could really not say no lol

    If you are referring to your Maximus II Formula mb - it looks like you will need to use the hack...

    I can see where you are coming from, but if you are not worried about performance/watt, heat production and silence...
    Then go for it!!!
    Or you can water cool the GPU(s) and not worry about the heat and silence:)
