Anytime you mention eyefinity, be sure to mention that ONE MONITOR MUST EITHER BE ON DISPLAYPORT OR ON AN ACTIVE DISPLAYPORT ADAPTER (not just any displayport adapter, but one that uses supplemental power). If people don't know this. They are in for a rude surprise. Also, if using a displayport to hdmi or dvi active adapter for eyefinity, make it the middle monitor.

I don't understand why you recommend a 1.65v RAM kit at 1600 when you can have 1600 speeds at 1.5v with other kits, for a lower price. G.skill ripjaws, for example.

The power supply, really, 850w for $179 and it;s only an 80+, not 85+?

Sure, it's got 6 8pin connectors... but it onl;y has 850w... an 8pin + 6pig GPU, like the 5890 Toms just recently reviewed, can handle 280w. That means 3 of those alone exceeds this PS performance, not even including any other components...

1: not modular. 2: too many connectors. 3: not 85% + rated. 4: about $40 too high of a price for what it DOES have.

For any of you that live near a microcenter, I just bought an I5 there for $149.99. I don't think they'll ship with that price, but that is KILLER for this processor!

does it make sense to recommend that's NEVER in stock? i speak of the HD 5850 of course. No one can actually buy any since they are NEVER in stock for more than 2 minutes ANYWHERE.

Do we really need cloud storage or cloud applications? Downloading movies from the internet would be great if we all had fiber to the home and the ISP's did not try to cap. Get real, your applcations not available unless you are connected to the internet, this was like the thin client that was pushed years ago. We are not all connect all the time.
