Playing the new F.E.A.R. would be awesome with this rig, and using multiple monitors would up the creep factor considerably.

Gawd! I'd HATE to be the one that had to check for compliance to that rule! Ha-Ha!

Even though my father passed away quite a few years ago i thought I would share a Father's Day memory with you....

My father was an avid golfer and for quite a few years we often went out golfing together.So one particular Sunday we went out and I thought that I would pay both  the green fees 

At the starter's desk, I mentioned " Happy Father;s Day, Dad " he just smiled and said 'Thank You'"

the started remarked "Father Day is next week, would like like to reserve a tee-time ?"

** just thought to share this from a time in my life that some things were a bit 'foggy,' and showed a 'lil 'ol bit of the remarkable and unconditional love a father can have for his son, and the bonding we shared on the golf course, playing a game we both loved.

Thanks

I have had a few amd processors and not a bad one out of the bunch. maybe some day i will get the chance to play with the bulldozer should be fun.

never had the chance to use a radeon graphics card before so i don't know the difference in the two except what i read on HH and about half of you guys seem to like them and they come out almost even in the test (if not slightly a head) in some cases so it will be nice to some benchmarking from the winner and maybe Dave & Marco will do there own testing before they send it down the road. be glad to see the build footage

After looking around on youtube and various websites for more user reviews of the Thermaltake Level 10 GT case, I was able to see the full magnitude to which liquid cooling could be taken to on this case. I already knew about the custom cooling kits the case was able to support but seeing videos of the crazy setups has got me pumped.

Being that the winner is selected around the end of June I would be more excited to play FEAR 3 with my girlfriend, since it is supposed to offer coop play. Also, I would love to play this little coop gem called The Cursed Crusade. That game really seemed to sneak up out of nowhere but both of them have a late June release date.

Sorry to tell you Omegadraco but with the power of my mind and my Tiger Blood I am Bi-Winning.

LBowen, Omegadraco, sorry to both of you,....but I'm a Snuffleupagus and I bleed digitally, and in special code, so I will prevail.

Absolutely beautiful. I've always been a huge fan of the Level 10 case but obviously can't afford one myself.
