Well, me and my dad made a bet so I really got $500 for my birthday and $500 from the bet.

Apokalipse, I am picking up a 7950GX2 and later I will be picking up DFIs 680i mobo so I can get another 7950GX2 for sli.

I agree with the general. If you're going spend that much to SLI two 7950GX2s, it's much more worth it to just get an 8800GTX.

Ok, I might consider it but I was really waiting for ATIs RD600 because I believe those are going to be the SHIZNAT!!

Plus I can get a 7950GX2 real cheap now that the G80s are out. ($350)

ok i dont know what u are talking about but the 7950gx2's are still around the $500 mark. they are no where neard 350 yet. aside from that nice keyboard and mouse. and did you really have to zoom in on the 600 watt sign on the box of ur psu. lol as for me i would reccomend the mx518 or some of the razers. but i'm sure teh g5 is great also.

Haha, on XS FS section you can get them cheap, but you wouldnt know about that.

Yea, I did need to zoom in on the 650w sign so people could see it.

And I explained why I got the G5 earlier in the thread.
