yummy. its like youre a kid in a candy store lol




wait arent those 480's lol?


The thing that caught our eye first was the awe inspiring GA-X58A-UD9. Known affectionately as the UD9, this monster has 7 PCIe x16 lane slots available for as many video cards as you care to throw at it. As it's based off of the original X58 chipset, Gigabyte has updated it with a USB 3.0 controller and SATA 6G. 8 SATA ports are available. In the photo above you can see it in a 4-way CrossFireX configuration.

I've actually been thinking of buying that for a folding farm... Not sure if I should part with my retirement fund though, although it's decades before I'll actually be using it.

I've actually been in Taipei around this time in 2009/2008 and I didn't know Computex existed/was going on...
