Thumbs up

Nice rig make sure you post some benchies of it .Tell them to pre-test it with various benchmarking programs like Sandra / 3Dmark 05 / PC - Mark and send you the results along with temp monitor info .For that kind of money they should offer that anyway . That way you'll no if theres any problems or there feeding you a line of crap when you test it yourself
