    Becomes much harder to choose, but I would not downgrade on case. the rest I can swallow.

    Listen to your AdviceDog and get a Mac ;) Seriously, don't bother getting a new graphics card yet, unless you want to sell your current one.

    Hmm.. take it he can't post today then.

    Looking at it, the 560 and 480 are the same price, yet the 480 is 18% (IIRC) better... hmm

    But 480 is louder and hotter, if you care about that.

    I've ordered the GTX570 :)

    Also, still no word for 'watercooled'.

    Anyone want this PS3 for cheap. I've read of them working if you reseat the TIM. If he doesn't reply i'll either try myself or sell it on for damn cheap.

    Also, triple post = pure win

    One question, if you goes from non RAID to RAID 0, do you need to reinstall Windows?

    AFAIK, they do all the e-mails at once when the courier's picked up today's orders. Probably getting loaded up into a van as we speak.
