    Nice build by the way!
    It does have backlit keys. It has selectable colors and brightness via a set of controls in the upper right corner, 4 touch sensitive buttons.

    Little update pic since I went CrossfireX on the 5870's :D

    VERY nice Moshpit. I will never catch up with you at this point. haha

    Cool as hell man. Have you tried Eyefinity yet. Maxishine on YouTube has a cool vid on it. Check it out. Username is Maxishine. It was just posted today....

    I don't have any monitors that I could run Eyefinity with, all are mismatched sizes. Besides, until AMD releases a driver with both Eyefinity and CrossfireX working together, then it would be a waste for me, I'd be stuck using a single GPU for everything.

    Thank you! And welcome to the forums :D

    I am very happy with how it turned out. No build I've built before this has been quite as pleasing from the get-go.

    Hey moshpit, after all this time, are you having a good experience with the 5870s?

    I am getting ready to order 5870 or 5770 but keep hearing about problems with the P55 chipset and drivers.

    Are yours still running good? Have you had much problem with them?

    Thanks if you're still out there and if anyone else knows about problems, please let me know.

    One year ownership update:

    For the first year of ownership, this has been a dream machine. The SSD is still snappy and responsive (thanks to TRIM), my processor is now running at 3.6Ghz, and I've since added a 1 Tb WD Black storage drive to hold more stuffs. Also added a second SSD to act as a backup OS drive in case of failure of the first. But the biggest change though was in when the GTX 580 launched, I did split up my CrossfireX 5870 to my other rigs and dropped in a single EVGA GTX 580 Black Ops Edition. Back to single card running for me, keeping up with profiles and such finally irritated me enough to give up on multi-GPU for the time being. I want true transparent multi-GPU support or just a single GPU of the highest end will do.

    In retrospect, I did enjoy many of the fruits of improved performance for quite a few AAA game titles during that year. But there were enough occasions where Crossfire didn't have a profile for a new game or old game and single card 5870 performance is no match for single card GTX 580 performance that is the minimum I have to ever worry about. That's not much to worry about, I like that. A single GTX 580 is actually well suited to my 1920x1080 gaming resolution, allowing massively crazy amounts of AA to be poured on liberally. Stalker Call of Pripyat is stunning in 16xCSAA + 4xTSSAA, 16xAF. Throw a few texture improvement mods in and it's becomes a near-Crysis like graphical experience (with more realistic lighting then Crysis when AO is enabled).

    So, in the face of the recent launch of Sandy Bridge and P67, I'm sitting it out and sticking with this rig to await the launch of the 2700K to knock 2600K prices down a hair. I'm not feeling any lack of CPU performance or pressure to upgrade as yet. I may even sit it out until the launch of socket 2011 and 22nm Ivy Bridge. I've got enough Core i7's sitting on my desk, don't need another one yet, even it has 4 digits in it's model number instead of 3 :p
