Me too...But I think I am going to wait and one shot it. Nehalem, X58, DDR3, whatever is the fastest (or close to it) on the NV side at the time...Basically, a new build...After X-Mas bonus perhaps...

I'm thinking the same thing; Nehalem, X58 and one more GTX 260 for SLi. I've already got some G.Skill DDR 3 1600 ram waiting to be used.

Ya... I got money burning a hole in my pocket right now... but to be honest... beside Crysis... there is nothing else I can't play with full settings on 1920x1200 smoothly...

I would assume you have a PhysX enabled Nvidia driver, so the CPU test can use the GPU for physics, which really boosts the score.
