Without the gay handles.


Then like $350 worth of Lights, Fans, Mesh, Metal, panels, other crap.

I got about 2k more to spend when the video cards are released.

you forgot the 2x1tb F1's ,and why not get a BD-RW

Only then is it a good PC :)

Seriously though that all sounds great.

I've not scene any test results with 2 X2's. Is crossfire working good now?

Was thinking about it but I already have 2x 500GB WD im putting in this pc from my other pc, and I have a 1TB file server so I figured more money I can spend on other parts. And im not sure about the BD-RW yet. I might get one later but it would just sit there doing nothing atm.

Edit: Kinda like the other 4GB of memory.

Nice man! I'm waiting for the benchies to decide whether to get X38 + 3870X2 crossfire or get a 780i and stick with nvidia.
