    Thanks Joker. Whats the difference between the Gtx260 and the 4870?

    R3k+ on a mobo is madness unless you plan on overclocking.

    Spend a bit less and chuck in an extra HDD or some games, perhaps?

    Both brilliant rigs... I think the Intel system would get some slightly better performance results. i7 out performs the AMD at this point in time, and it's got 6GB RAM, but it's a tough choice either way.

    My mouth waters thinking of having that kinda PC.

    I would take the Intel rig. Both are nice rigs but the Intel rig looks better in so many ways. It should give you better performance and as an added bonus it's an awesome case!

    I vote option 2.

    i7 is the best CPU in the world right now so its a no brainer.

    I would also look at getting the gtx 260 216 personally, its a bit more but will last a bit longer.

    Its a lot to spend though, mostly because of the CPU and motherboards chosen.

    I'm not sure I would go with either of them right now

    I think I would put the 4870 on the Intel rig as its a xfire board.
