Crazy! Your computer will PWN!
I am SOOO jealous that you got the Striker Extreme. You will have to tell me how all of the neat little features that Asus included with their new 680i boards, such as the LED's, the Q-connectors, and the Debug screen. They seemed like really great ideas...
What games are you going to be playing?!

all of them at same time lol.

Well at the moment i play, CofH, BF2142 and DeltaForce Xtreme, I also play LW. Need to get CS.

Only problem is that i am at uni at the moment so being on the RESNET i cannot play anything online so only get to during breaks.
