i like... that'll be a beast.

you think the 900 will be big enough for everything? i have one a 900, but i haven't seen a 3870x2 in person so i don't know.

what was your last rig that you got $1600 for? i thought it was like a dual-core a gts 320 or something...?

well thats a good deal for you on your last system, you think you could help me sell my rig? lol. yeah i mean the 900 has tons of space, but its still a mid-tower either way.

the armor is sweet, but i've personally grown very fond of the gigabyte aurora mostly due to aspire's sweet rig.

You really think that 2 3870x2's are necessary? I've heard that they don't really give you much benefit when adding the second card. All it really does is help sustain frame rates in highly demanding games, but if you're into Crysis or others then it will atleast provide some benefit to you. The 3870x2 is a powerhouse by itself...... I can't imagine what 2 would be capable of.
