That's a lovely build Manduh, congrats [:D]
I'd like to see the list adjusted for price and bandwidth caps because I'm pretty damn sure we're getting raped up here in Canada despite the advertised "high speeds".
Finally I hope they can get those Tegra 2 products out in 2011. I was holding on buying a netbook until those Ion2 and Tegra2 netbooks surfaced but this year has been dry on that front.
Wow nice build. How much in total did it cost you?
Also, how is the thermaltake keyboard? I see that it is a great value compared to other gaming keyboards right now plus I like that they didn't screw around with the layout so much.
$449 is $100 more expensive than Asus' recent VG236H 3D monitor. I'd love to see the reviews for this thing.
I wonder if they are going to allow the Extreme preset now to be used on 1920x1080.

Nice, how much did it all cost you in total?
Not really a big deal since HAWX 2 isn't really as graphic heavy and even the 6850 does 70fps avg in the benchmark with tessellation on at 1080p, although the min frames are lower.
AMD is probably poo-pooing this more becaues the 5800 tessellation performance vs the 6800 tessellation performance is next to no improvement on this game, meaning their "smart tessellation" implementation isn't providing enough muscle.
It's weird how Sapphire chose to use the stock fan on the 6870 but placed the good, quiet cooling fan on the 6850.
I have the Sapphire 6850 and its the quietest fans I have ever heard (or not heard), it only starts to get noticeably audible at 55% inside a case but during OCCT/Furmark the fans only throttle up to 59% so its still relatively quiet when you are gaming.
The real news here is that AMD finally has an official 3D solution vs Nvidia's 3D Vision.
