    The parts shipped here was $2,150.00. What blows my mind is that 1000+ of that was just video cards. Those 4870 X2's are not cheap unfortunately. I've been out of the game for 3 years in terms of PC gaming and nothing has changed on that front. Then I purchased a 24" monitor, which was...

    How about the mouse pad? I have an ice mat from back in my gaming days, maybe 4 years old. Will that work well with the G9?

    Update. After reading a few reviews, I think I really want to go SLi this time around. Do you have to use DDR3 in this board? EVGA 132-YW-E179-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i Would DDR2 work, as long as it's 240pin? I want to go with DDR2 Corsiar Dominator, 4 gigs, because well, I already...

    I'm not really a fan boy, I usually go with what's on top at the time.... In my last gaming rig I had ATi, but had some issues with it. Not sure if it was a chipset issue or not, but from the reviews this time around the 280 is on top. I have Windows Vista Business, but should I throw one...

    It sounds like the BFGTech GeForce GTX 260 OCX MAXCORE is the way to go right now. Sounds like it beats out the 4870 in most bench tests.

    No, I'm going to be upgrading monitors. What I meant to say in my original post, I have two 17" monitors I was going to run side by side, which yes is retarded.

    If I'm going to do it, might as well do it up right. The video card I'd like top of the line, but the processor really doesn't have to be.... Back when i was into gaming, having the highest processor didn't really make or break the rig. Or has that changed some in todays games?

    Making Secondary Domain Controller the Primary?

    What if the primary is unresponsive and you can't even access the box anymore? then what? Also, what if you just delete it in Active Directory on the Secondary DC and just say "Denote but keep using as a computer"? Would that promote the secondary DC as the primary then? AC and DNS are...
