This is crazy. Why spend all this money on i7s and stuff when very few games even utilize 4 cores, much less hyperthreading. You could do so much better for less and stash the extra cash away for when Haswell comes out and the new generation of GPUs. Then, when games start utilizing more than 4 cores, then upgrade to a hyperthreaded 4 core chip. Makes no sense. Plus, like someone else suggested, how many monitors will be used. Its pointless, to get an outrageous GPU if you are just gamine at 1080p.
