@DBZ - Looking to get an enthusiast setup. My current build is the first system I ever assembled (with a lot of help and advice from the guys here at TS). Would love to put together a beast now. Any ideas on AMD's Bulldozer platform and how it is expected to compare against Sandy Bridge? Since I'll have to build the rig out of savings from my salary I might have to keep a watch on the budget. Or maybe I could purchase components over a period of time and put them together once I've acquired everything. Would that be good? Also, is liquid-cooling the way to go? EDIT: Sorry. I seem to have hijacked this thread.
