I want chime in here and give Xnine and NZXT the pat on the back they deserve.

It is awesome to see this kind of response. Like others have stated, these kind of actions put a manufacturer on a guys list of options.

It is most awesome. I can't wait to see what happens when its all finalized. It was supposedly figured out last Friday but I haven't heard anything yet from XNine or anyone else at NZXT. Sent Xnine a couple emails requesting an update but nothing yet. He is a busy dude though so who knows what hes up to.

Heard from Xnine about an hour ago. My CPU is tested and working fine.
They are just looking for a suitable replacement for my 6870. A couple of 7970s would be about equal right?
A 7850 is fairly close to a 6870 but what would be the nvidia equivalent today for curiosities sake?

Whatever I receive ill be most grateful for. I just hope its soon. All forums and no gaming make 6strings go crazy..

We've changed our mind. We're actually going to be sending you an iMac G4, the kind with the Swivel arm and Igloo base.


We feel that this is fair compensation.... You could totally game on that, right? I mean, Sim City 2 is pretty awesome....

Dude I just got over 3 days of stomach flu. Don't make me start vomiting again.
And yes. Simcity 2 is awesome. I'm actually playing simcity2000 on my sons comp right now.

Just off the top of my head...I'd say a 4GB 680...but only a fancy one like the new Asus Top...anything less and you'd just be getting ripped off.

Ha. Nice try Akg. Somehow I don't think that'll fly. Be careful. You might get me upgraded to an Apple IIe...

Me! I don't long for the return of the 5-1/4 floppy! Though I did have fun with them back in the day!
