Default What is an enthusiasts rig ?

Just about to order myself a Q6600, 4G, 512GTS, 1Tb rig.

Is this an Enthusiasts rig ? Do you consider your rig to be an enthusiasts rig ? ( Jakup... no need to reply... lol ).

Enthusiasts rig is any custom built machine that is up to par with the lastest game demands.
