Nice rig. I hate the paint job. And I would be ashamed to tak it to a lan party. I would rathar take my case from an old PII to a lan party than that.

I just thought of something...

If the ASUS mobo has true 16x slots and they were designed for a single card, would having 2 cards per slot effectively make the slot run at 8x? And if so, wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having the 16x slots to begin with. Just a thought.

This is from their site...

Why are the graphic cards slanted? And is that red thing the power supply?
