yuck i7. Thanks but no thanks.
waste of $$$
that system not a strong enough power supply either for watercooling.

back on topic, thought I would get some expert advise:

Diamond Radeon HD 4870 X2 Xoc 800MHZ 2GB

I checked the 295 looks great but the 4870X2 are now coming with $50 rebates so I think I'll stick with it. Don't know much about which 4870 X2 are reference design for a full cover waterblock. Any suggestions?

G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK PC2-8500 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1066 <-- Don't know much about ram but I need ram that overclocks well with the Rampage Formula Mobo.

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Dual Core <-- Is it worth going for 8600 or Quad core?
It might be now that Intel is dropping prices because of the amd processor.
A 9650 with a 40% price drop might be a good buy, any opinions?


oh any I"ll wait a while for new monitors by samsung 120hz and dell "g" led backlighting coming out in a month - 2 months. At least that will drive the price of the 2408 rev 01 ultashrap significantly. Not sold on 3d capable samsung monitor because FPS will take a hit and price of 3d glasses and 295 card.
