[citation][nom]abbadon_34[/nom]wow, wonder much of a Kickback Tom's gets, I hope this doesn't continues, the "Daily Deals" in the NEWS section is bad enough.Does anyone here really buy overpriced pre-built systems? Especially this Tri-SLI gimmick "After a long hiatus, Tom's Hardware returns to consumer desktop reviews" there is a good reason for that Hiatus. Put this review on some other site, I'm sure BestofMedia has plenty low level dummy sites to stuff[/citation]
Eh, did you miss the part where they pointed out that the parts were $730 cheaper than what Origin charges for the system?
I am surprised by one thing in this build, though: Pouring all those dollars into graphics cards and motherboard and whatnot, and then sticking to same ol' DDR3-1600. Not that the performance gain from switching to DDR3-1866 is big, but it would only cost you a handful of dollars. A drop in the ocean.
