What's Inside The Box?
While the monitor configuration is certainly different, the insides of each computer are more or less the same, with a few subtle exceptions. Each system is using an ATI Radeon HD 5870, a Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition @ 3.2 GHz, an MSI 785GM-E65 Socket AM3 motherboard, 4GB of Corsair DDR3 memory, and one 150GB VelociRaptor from Western Digital. All of that hardware is enclosed in a sleek Lian-Li case.
The differences: the Eyefinity-based config utilizes an 800W Thermaltake power supply, while the other box uses a Corsair TX 750. Also, the Eyefinity rig has a BD-ROM drive, but this wasn't used at all during the day's festivities. Again, these systems are as similar as you can get.
