    Why not SLI dual 512MB GTXs on a four-way socket 940 board with quad dual-core Opterons while you're at it? At a certain point, there is a such thing as too fast. For anything but a high-end server, super-high-end workstation, or supercomputer, SCSI is that point.

    Besides, it's much more realistic to use Gigabyte's i-RAM for solid-state storage. That blows the faster SCSI driver away, at the cost of reliability and size.

    I sure would hate to play one that didn't. I know all my games (at least my shooters) do.

    Yawgmoth, I guess the sarcasm didn't come out right. Of course SCSI would be much too expensive to run on an everyday PC. THe cost of the hardrrives alone would be enough to scare almost everyone away.

    I would never buy anything more than a regular SATA drive myself. I spent alot of money to build my system and I am super happy with the SATA drive I use. Performs excellent and is plenty fast for me. I would also NOT recommend 7800's in SLI to anyone. My CPU is hopelessly bottlenecking my video cards.

    But man, that system you dreamed up with the quad dual core Opties sure would be sick! ANd only about 10K!!!

    That happens when you can't see or hear people. Sarcasm is much harder to get out in writing. I suppose it should have been obvious that you were kidding, but you'd be suprised at what some people will suggest. I don't take chances.

    Which is it? Parts being bought in Canada cost much more than in the U.S. $1200 CA ends up being more like $700-$800 USD.
