Ok Khan is this bored guy, who makes up a fabulous system by taking the most expensive parts on Newegg, naturally we ask for benchmarks and pictures, and he's like "I don't have a digital camera, I'll go buy one" and we haven't seen him in a while... but I was kinda suspicious from the beginning of his charade, he said he had a qx6800 which was Ultra Rare at that time, it was not available to the average consumer, you either buy it with an already made system, or have a couple of hook ups, and we know he's probably a nobody in the PC World..
