Still pushing the limits of the CPU, it can do more :) Did a quick test in FarCry 2, straight off the bat compared to my old setup I gained 15FPS, and 3DMark Vantage increased by several thousand! Now I am off to reformat and install L4D (nana2)

How much does this actually come out of your pocket?

I know we all here have money to blow on new hardware but you always update everytime a new product comes out.

Very nice rig i must say.

I have that same cpu but i still can't figure out why the fsb is below 200 this time with these and i use stock speeds on mine cuz i don't OC on cpu.

Awesome rig Jacob ! :D

Are you planning to switch to a GTX 295 Quad SLI, or will you keep your current GTX 280 Tri SLI (or perhaps GTX 285) ? :)

Nice granite you got there :)

Looks good man, we just ordered a bunch of X58 goodies ourselves. We went with the Gigabyte motherboard and the 940 processor, cant wait to see what it can do.

Black green? Black red?
So many decisions.
