Welp...I must brag...

Despite my system already being a nice one...
I'm getting a new position and will be receiving a hefty "sign on" bonus. Thus it is time to make the PCIe leap, and in style :).

Thus far:
AMD A64 - X2 4800+
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
2GB Corsair (2x1GB PC3200)
1xLeadtek 7800GTX (uber ultra something or other)
2xWD Raptor 74GB (RAID 0 of course)
1xSeagate 400GB (Storage mm)
Creative X-Fi Elite Pro
PC Power & Cooling SLI510 ATX PSU
Lian-Li PC-V1200A Plus Case

Then of course the usuals, floppy, dvd-+rw, new keyboard probably.

The reasoning for going with just 1 7800GTX is that if I am comfortable with the performance with one then great. If in the future I feel taxed, I can always upgrade to two and SLI them for some nice FPS boosts, and by that time prices should be reasonable to get a second. $1K is quite a bit to drop on video, it is VERY tempting though, VERY VERY VERY tempting hehe.

So anyway...sorry I had to brag just once...never had me an uber "1337" setup before...Game on!

Should be happening by next month, we'll see how she goes. Maybe bring her by for some weekend colliseum gaming ;)


>Oh no you don't, get a BFG grapics card, lifetime warente and OCed right out of the box. Also you should wait for ASUS's new mobo, currently SLi can only run on a mobo at 8x speeds (AGP speeds) ASUS's new mobo will make it an official 16x speed for both slots while in SLi mode. The mobo should be released shortly so I would wait. It's also on ASUS's website.
