MoBo: The Rampage II Extreme (R2E) is a great board, just completed a build with it back in October. But the R3E is right around the corner.

Memory:

1. Corsair Memory is very overpriced
2. It can't compete w/ the Muskin.
3. Corsair cooler won't fit in that build on R2E.

Sou8nd: The R2E comes with a sound card, why add a 2nd ?

HD: 10,000 rpm drives are slower than current 7200 models.

Wireless: no matter how much $$ you throw at it, can't compete with on board Gigabit LAN

Heat Sink / Fans:

Heat Sink - For performance and ease of installation, the Prolimatech Megahalems fits both criteria. Here's what I'm putting in new builds Mega w/ IC Diamond TIM and twin Scythe PWM fans (make sure ya MoBo can handle the fan wattage...R2E can). ($95 for the HS, TIM. two PWM fans and a Y cable splitter))

You cant do physics with a mixture of Nvidia and ATi cards unless you use older drivers such as the 186.xx or earlier and physics is useless anyhow, only a handful of games support it and not alot of programs need it either.

There's a lotta ATI users on NGOHQ.com that will disagree.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-ATI-physx-patch...
http://www.ngohq.com/graphic-cards/16223-nvidia-disable...

As for useless....I don't think Asus and EVGA would be coming out with a whole new line of specialized hardware strictly for PhysX if they thought it was useless.

Batman: Arkham Asylum
Crazy Machines II
Cryostasis
Dark Void
Darkest of Days
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
Metal Knight Zero Online
Mirror's Edge
Nurien
PT Boats: Knights of the Sea
Sacred 2
Star Tales
Unreal Tournament 3
Unreal Tournament 3 - Extreme Physics Mod
U-WARS
Warmonger

With just about all of the popular gaming engines having licensed PhysX, and all the specialized hardware coming out from major hardware vendors, I'm afraid I just don't see (and apparently neither does Asus or EVGA) the same "writing on the wall" that you are seeing.

If all you got to play was the above and another PhysX title was never made, would be worth the $65 investment for a 220. On a box of this budget, a GTS 250 is "coffee money". To put it another way, if I had to pay $10 more for a PhysX enabled game, where it's done as well as it was in Batman, my answer would be "in a heartbeat".

Ultimately, it's success or demise will depend on what game devs invest in it. If they do more Batman's .... it will succeed....if they do more Mirror's Edge , it won't......same w/ DX11.....if we see more Battleforge's and Dirt2's,DX11 will be another dud like Dx10. If they invest the time and money like it looks like we'll see in Alien / Predator, it should be a significant success. Not having a crystal ball, I have to depend on time to tell.
