In other words, this is what happens when you put a computer of the Gods into one of the most punishing environments in modern gaming. Best assignment ever? Very close." -- View Article

lol they don't like the intel ssd and want 12GB for gaming?

why can't we just for once get a review from a group of people that know what they are talking about. How does Brian Won have a job there if all he does is compare amounts of ram and other bs.

LOL, agree. I've nowhere near the experience you two have, and even I'm a bit annoyed at the points focused on in the review.

a gaming rig? yes. 6Gb more than plenty.  adding more will only put more stress on the IMC and reduce potential performance.

why would I want extra ram that I would never notice its existence, if anything I would notice it possibly in a negative manner as explained above, it would be equivalent of putting 4 x 580 in a system that games at 1900 x 1200, you could come and take out 2 of those and the owner would never notice the difference.

The point is that their guru doesn't even understand that a good gaming pc needs to be one, and yet some how he is their tech guru

they review a beast of a rig, and that's all they test?
1.f**k multi monitor setups
2.very few people even bother with more than one monitor, let alone 3
3.the games they tested weren't exactly hard to max out

One thing I wanted to see were the temperatures, 4ghz on air with two hot cards and they didn't even bother mentioning the temps?
